New Born Puppies
I am delighted to let you know that Elodie has safely delivered her puppies.
Elodie had 7 girls and 2 boys in her litter - we have been having heavy boy litters recently so a girl heavy litter was a lovely surprise for us!
Her puppies are absolutely beautiful! They range in colour from light to dark apricot..and are just amazing!!
AN UPDATE ON THE BIRTH
Elodie didn’t have any obvious signs that she was on the verge of going into labour until the morning of her delivery. Her first puppy was delivered at 12.03pm and her last at 5.12pm.
Elodie had a brilliant labour, she was very relaxed and calm, from start to finish everything went smoothly. All the pups were born healthy, a good weight and all had a good pair of lungs on them.
The first 7 days are the most critical in any young puppies development. The puppies can’t regulate their own temperature and are born with their eyes and ears closed. They are completely dependent on their mother for everything even going to the toilet as they can’t do this without their mother licking their bottom to stimulate them.
