Well the wait is over. Tina had her puppies. I feel like I’m in the land of women right now. Or at least little girls. Tina had 8 females and no males. Her pregnancy lasted 63 days. Exactly the days averaged. We originally thought she was only going to have 7, but let a behold 14 hours later she pushed another out. Her contractions had gone, and she was acting normal. All of a sudden another just came out.
Tina is doing great. This is her first litter, so she’ll be learning a lot from them. She’s definitely tired, but at least she is content. I still can’t believe that all her puppies were female. What are the odds on that one. I went to bed late last night around 3:30 a.m., or morning I guess you can say. I knew she was almost ready to give birth. She was making loops on a pillow. Around 5:00 a.m. we heard the first puppy. Jolene got up and delivered them while I slept. Lucky me. 14 hours later, I got to help with the 8th female puppy.
Just in case you missed, Olaf is the father. We wish all the puppies well on their future. Here are a few photos from their first day.
