Expecting Mother Elvira!


Sep 30, 2009

Elvira is in excellent condition and labor is proceeding normally!





Oct 5, 2009

They are here!!!

First breath for 3 male and one female puppies. Excellent labor - all puppies in good health!!!

Elvira proved a fantastic mother. She is always in her nest with the puppies, licking and feeding them until their belies are ready to explode! She does not allow Shiro to come close to the puppies and she is chasing the cats who are always curious about the new arrivals!

Puppies are getting biger and bigger! You can see them after lunch into their crate




Oct 17, 2009

To our surprise there are  2 males and 2 females (not 3M and 1F)!!! It happens sometimes - especially during the first days of life - and we did not want to upset the mother by taking puppies away from her for close observation.
