Cider is pregnant. She is due around Sept.14/15th. These are her ultrasound photos. It doesn't tell us how many she has but she has several.
Cider waiting!! She is getting rounder every day. She still likes to go out for her walks.
She thinks the sofa is a good place to have her puppies!!
Click on the pics to see a video of the puppies moving. You have to look hard but you can see the movement.
I'm getting soooo round!!
Cider is determined she will have her puppies on the sofa!!!! You can see how big she is getting.
Cider had her puppies yesterday during the day!! She was very considerate!! This is her x-ray showing the puppies. If you count the skulls or "zippers" (backbones) you can tell how many she had. Please let me know how many you think she has. I'll confirm it when I hear from you!! I'll put some pics up later in the day.
Cider had 10 puppies on Sept.13th. 5 males and 5 females. All are doing well.
Day1 as the puppies were being born. They are under a red heat lamp to keep them warm. The males are marked with a blue mark in different places and the females are marked with a pink mark. eg. PH is a mark on the female's head. BB is a mark on the back of a male. They will keep the mark on the same place until they go home so you can look back at pics to see your puppy over the weeks.
