Barbie and her babies had their first full day together and it’s just so amazing to watch Barbie do her thing. She is so comfortable as a mother and with her skills. She isn’t nervous or anxious. She takes things all in stride and does her thing.
The puppies have all sustained their birthweight and have their plump bellies. All except the last puppy – the black and tan girl – were normal presentations at birth and you can already start to see their heads reshape. It will be interesting to see how they develop along with who is a smooth coat and who is a long. We do have the opportunity for both varieties with this breeding so perhaps we need to start placing bets again?
