Boy puppies

Posted on

Finally, a boy was born! Oreck arrived as 8th puppy on March 26th at 2:11 Pacific time. Six hours and one minute after the first girl was born!  He is a little undercooked- you can just barely see in this photo that the bottom of his little pads are still pink- but he’s doing great and will soon have the dark pigment that his siblings have. He weighed 11.3 oz at birth and is already up to 15.7 oz.

Hoover was born 9th, at 2:39 am. He weighed 12.4 oz at birth and has grown to 16.6 oz.

The last Shelby puppy ever to be born- Kirby- arrived at 4:35 am. He weighed 13.7 oz at the time but is now the biggest puppy at 17.4 oz. The breeder put the same collar on this pup as the one I bought for Voodoo- premonition? We will see!

The breeder will pick out my puppy first, from these 3 boys. That won’t happen till after they are at least 7 weeks old.  This is so the structure of the pups can be assessed and their personalities are better known. So for the next 7-8 weeks, I’ll be posting about all 3 since any of them could potentially be Voodoo.
