I would like to announce that Sarah and Charming have a brand new litter. A little boy and a little girl were born to them on April 6th. The little girl is rich chocolate and white like Charming and the little boy is black and white flanked with beautiful touches of brindle throughout his coat. Both puppies arrived in the breech position which wouldn't be so bad but... they were both big puppies, the boy being first and bigger and I had to literally pull him to save his little life. And he sadly has a cleft lip and can not latch on and nurse as his sister. So, every and I mean every two hours I am tube feeding him and as of today, Saturday April 10th from Tuesday April 6th he has gained three ounces from tube feeding. He will be fed this way until he is weaned onto his puppyfood. Thank you all for your support and encouragement concerning Lil Elvis and thanks to RuthAnn for giving him his name.
