Tuesday 2nd April was a day of great relief after several days of anxiousness.
Our Maggie 'finally' produced our first litter since October 2011, she spent 3 days and nights preparing herself for the event.
Finally 5am Tuesday we had 1 female born at the Vet.
Fortunately after a calcium injection she managed to produce another female and 3 males , all healthy, over the next 7 hours.
We are so proud of her .
Maggie is quite the 'talker' and keeps telling me what a difficult time she has had, and now has to spend all her time feeding them as well!
Fortunately she is an excellent mother and the puppies are all doing wonderfully well.
We should also of course give some credit to Dad ,'our Pete' aka Gr Ch Sonree Starlite Quixtep for these excellent puppies.
Pete turned 12 years old last month and managed the mating without assistance.
