After much anticipation and tons of nesting, Blue began the final stage of whelping her litter at 2:45 this morning. Of course, it started in my bed but ended in her whelping box as it should.
At 3:50 am, the first little girl arrived. She is a chocolate tri-color and weighed in at 5 1/4 oz. The vocal one in the group, she went right to eating before she was even detached from her sack!
Her sister arrived at 4:59 am, a much quieter and subdued pup, but cute as ever. A black tri-color with a lot of tan on her cheeks. She looks a lot like her daddy Ace! Weighing in at 5 1/4 oz as well, she is longer and thinner while her sister is shorter and stubbier. Only time will tell if they remain the same size.
And now we sleep. That is if we can. I know for me personally, once I am up I AM UP. Let’s see how Blue takes an all nighter!
