At 1:20PM, on St. Paddy’s Day, Caya had her 7th black pup, which happened to be a female. That was her last pup. The final tally on the Chip/Caya litter is 5 black males and 2 black females.
We have an appointment with the vet for Thursday, at 3:00PM, to have the dewclaws removed from the pups.
The best news of all is that they look healthy and have been nursing. One can tell that easily especially when it is so quiet in the whelping box. Not much fussing at all with this litter. That is a great sign. If you are a bird hunter, these pups should be some very good retrievers. Both parents, Chip and Caya, have been raised as family dogs and are blessed with some wonderful personalities.
Here are a few photos, with the 1st one taken on March 1st and the last 3 taken on 3-17-2.
