We had a surprising afternoon on 1/9/20, Autumn had her first puppy at 2:30pm. She usually waits until night or early morning (probably because it's quiet and my girls are in bed!) but today she chose right after lunch to begin!
Here are the first three, born within an hour of each other. She labored well and it only took about 4 hours for all 11 puppies to be born. All healthy, wriggly, and latching well!
The puppies range in size from 9.14 oz to 11.7 oz, and we have 6 girls and 5 boys. Can't wait to watch their little puppy bellies grow and they nurse and sleep all day long! You wouldn't think it, but newborn puppies are surprisingly loud with their snorts, snuffles and mews.
This little girl was the first one born and I love the white markings on her chest!
