    'Twas me, of course, and I didn't even whelp the litter, I just sat by the phone!! i was up though, for moral support. The litter lives with one of my breeding partners in a nearby town. I was there to meet them when they arrived home. It was a C-section as we knew she had a stricture. Here's a better photo; photo.JPG

    Hi Wayoutwest,
    single sex litters don't appear to be uncommon: I've only whelped 125 puppies (65 dogs, 60 bitches) over 30+ years, some litters for other people. Not counting the two litters than each had just one bitch puppy, there have been one litter of two dogs, one of three dogs and one of three bitches, and one each of four, five and six dogs. I've had several litters of three or four bitches and just one dog.

    Hi Jane,

    He's probably smaller because they were packed in pretty tightly and he didn't get the nutrition the rest did. He's actually not that small, 5.5 oz, but the rest of them are 8-10 oz so make him look smaller. When I've had mixed color litters the rubies have always been the biggest. This is the first time the smallest has been a wholecolor.

    Did someone say that singletons are precocious? Little Solitaire is just over 4 weeks old and now she's standing at her mother's dinner bowl eating kibbles and cottage cheese! (Kibbles because I don't feel pregnant/nursing mothers raw meat. She gets cooked at other meals.)

    Keep your fingers and paws crossed that the black and tan turns out to be stunning. That's what I really, really, really want.
