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.
