Our Rush x Tyme Litter is Here

Our Rush x Tyme litter arrived successfully on Saturday, Oct 22/11. All 5 girls were born, during the day, within 4 hours from the time her labour started. They weighted in between 4.1 and 5.6 oz. It has meant that couch duty was called for the last two nights to ensure the 2 smaller ones could navigate properly. As I post this, they've all gained good weight, with last night being uneventful, hopefully with eyes on everyone today, I'll be able to get a nights sleep in bed.The gang is all here.
Yes, that is a handful of 5 pups!
everyone snuggling in @ 2 days of age
~@ 2 days of age it's just a pile of pups~

at this age it's nurse, stay together, and keep warm
pups have higher temperature needs at this age and can't regulate their own body temp till they are closer to 2 wks of age

Thanks Val ... Yup! Surprised me too. But I did loose sleep Fri nite to keep watch that she didn't go thru the nite. I'll take this one, as you know it doesn't happen that often.

Travis says his new [half] sisters are very pretty! He hopes his Mom is doing well too!
