Puppies Arrive!

Yesterday, September 30, was a monumentally busy and exciting day for us. It began at 3 a.m. when Miss T became increasingly restless. She then began labor in earnest around 4 a.m. and by 6:20 had delivered 8 puppies! Unfortunately one of the girls was born dead – but we have 2 males and 5 females that are feeding and doing well. T is being a very good mother and seems to have settled into her new task well. Pictures are online at http://www.borzoi.cc/gryffynsaeyrie/gallery/t-litter

At 4 p.m., our Silken faction decided to have their day ! Josi began nesting in earnest and at 6:15 p.m. began having visible contractions. In the end, we had to take her to the ER because the first pup was too large to pass, so Josi underwent a c-section. We have 3 pups, 1 male and 2 females that are feeding well and are very active!
