Five Sleepy Puppies

Taken this morning while the puppies were snoozing. Rosie is visibly happy to be having a break.

Update (20070514) : Sad news - one of the puppies didn't make it. I found her wheels-up in the puppy box next to a sad Rosie. The other four all seem to be doing well. This was the first puppy (out of 20) that we've lost.

More puppy photos here.

    How about tired? That must be a lot of work.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    I imagine so - they took 5 and a bit hours to deliver (there's a big gap between puppies), and now she needs to feed them (a lot). They won't open their eyes for 2 weeks or so, but are quite capable of whinging right now.

    Wow, five puppies! (o^^o)
  • David de Groot said:
    Yep :)

    Her biggest litter was 7, and her smallest (first litter) was 3. In total she's made 20 little puppies :)

    20 puppies?! Oh my goodness! Is that a lot for dogs? Sorry, don't know much about dogs. :o(

    As far as I know, that's fairly standard for multiple litters. Sometimes you only get a couple but sometimes you get a lot. :)
