Pedigree & photo's for this breeding
This litter is being raised in New Hampshire
Pocahontas's Mom (Peggy Vivinetto) chose to name the ribbon colors in a Tropical theme.
Pocahontas's puppies born 12/17/08
She began her labor as per the normal signs, drop in temp, contractions etc.
Although the signs of labor were present, Pocahontas never went into full labor.
She wouldn't push forcibly with the contractions, she resisted what she felt, but her body
detached the puppies from her uterus as normal regardless. This gave many puppies
delivered out of their sac's , umbilical cords severed, no placentas and four puppies that
were still born. They suffocated in the birth canal. One (Mr. Miracle, was revived after 35 mins,
only to be allowed to cross the bridge 36 hours later). Yes it is very heart breaking!
Two puppies were born outside (boy was it cold and snowing), they were caught in a towel,
before landing in the snow.
We did all we could to give every puppy a chance at life.
In the end Pocahontas gave birth to 10 puppies, we had 5 live puppies (3 boys - 2 girls)
Thank you! Peggy & John, for being such wonderful parents.
Go away, I'm nesting miserably
In mommy & daddy's bed, after coming in from nesting :)
Back out for a bit more nesting
Back on the sofa, (lol I get to lay anywhere I want)
On a 15 minute break
in the early morning hours of 12/17/08, Pocahontas delivered her first puppy ever :)
The last puppy on the right (Mr. Miracle/Mango) is no longer with us,
he has earned his wings.
Mr. Parakeet 1.2 lbs
Mr. Sorrel (Jamaican Xmas drink) 1.6 lbs
he is the biggest and nothing stands between him and his teat!
Mr. Kiwi 1.2 lbs
Miss Grenadine 1.2 lbs
ingredient in cocktails, to give a pink tinge to mixes.
Miss Passion (passion fruit) 1.0 lbs
As you can see, Pocahontas is a wonderful mommy.
Here she takes a break and enjoys the snowfall the morning after whelping.
Can I please go in side with my babies?
Look at Mr. Sorrel, he makes certain to stand if he has to, on his first day for a drink.
Below at 4 days of age
The view the puppies will enjoy while growing up, I did :)
