Elsie x Tarn born 1st June 2010
These puppies now all have wonderful homes thank you! We have
also received all the DNA test results and only 2 of the puppies are
carriers for CEA which is an excellent statistic!
Week 7! Puppies are starting to go to their new homes. At
the moment - peace reigns!
Bryn has a home and will be called Bryn!
Bolt has a home and will be called Lundy. He has had quite an
adventurous start to life - he needed to have his head cut out of a
watering can soon after arriving at this new home - but was apparently
not at all fazed by the experience!
Tank now has a wonderful home where he will be known as Kai and he will
be doing Working Trials.
He is just too gorgeous !
Ant has a home where he will be called Buddy! I think he will be
a great Buddy.
Chance has a home where he will be called Sonny.
Dee is staying at Snowmere
Dec has a home where he will be called Mac
Sweep has a home
Fifi says "Bye"
in her new home...called Wyn! She will be doing obedience.
Week 6 - Puppies have had their eye and hearing tests - all clear!
5 - how time flies! Elsie is such a good mum - still feeding
well OK not for long, but, occasionally anyway! Elsie off for
some 'me' time.
Some of the puppies are really starting to show the characteristics of
the parents! This is Dee - she is staying at Snowmere where she
will compete with her dad for possession of the toybox!
Bryn not being very photogenic today - better in real life!
Week 4 - the pups make it outside! They are doing really well,
very fat, lively and adventurous. Their personalities are really
starting to show, and we know now which ones will be going to
competitive and experienced homes! Tarn has lost the battle to
keep control of the toys though unfortunately - lucky he's such a
Elsie puts on outside catering
Bolt - looks like he's limbering up for the long jump.....
Oh no - it's the water jump!
Week 3 - the pups are really motoring about now and have started to
pretend to eat rice pudding - however the evidence is smeared all over
them in these photos that mum is feeding them far too well and most
rice pudding is used as decoration. Tarn looks slightly worried
about his child maintenance payments here...
Puppies chorus "Hello Daddy!"
Tarn worries "I'd better hide my toys"
Dog 1 - Bryn (I can't see it yet - Juliet swears there a funny
Dog 2 - Bolt aka Harry Potter
Dog 3 - Mini me aka Tank
Dog 4 - Ant
Dog 5 - Chance
Bitch 1 - Dee the adventurer. Thanks to Dee the front of the box
has now been opened - release those puppies!
Dog 6 - Dec
Dog 7 - Sweep (also showing signs of brindle apparently...)
Bitch 2 - Fifi Trixabelle (still so sweet)
The pups are so huge that Elsie can't fit them all in underneath her
for a feed - one puppy (Tank) has found a novel way of getting around
Week 2 - What a difference a week makes! The puppies are now
have their eyes open, they are all moving about and interacting a lot
so it took a lot of photographic skill to capture these
pictures....well done Juliet!
Elsie is now matched in size by the mass of puppies
The full litter - never still! Poor Fifi, being thrown backwards
Dog 1 - Bryn (Juliet still swears he is going to be Brindle)
Dog 2 - Bolt - aka Harry Potter - he has a
lightening flash at the back of his neck
3 - Mini me is a Tank, so he is named one!
Dog 4 - Ant - his collar is slightly left
(goto Dog 6 to make sense of this!)
Dog 5 - Chance - Sandy (consultant midwife)
wanted to call one Chance.....
Bitch 1 - Dee - because Juliet says so!
Dog 6 - Dec - his collar is slightly right
(gettit?) - overseas readers - we can explain!
Dog 7 - Sweep - cos he is very dark
Bitch 2 - Fifi (trixabelle) - as she is so sweet
The pups are now a week old and Elsie is doing a great job with them as
you can see they are looking pretty fat! We now only have dog
Elsie gave birth to NINE puppies between 2pm and 10pm. Seven
dogs and Two bitches, all black tricolour, all healthy, lively and
She had an easy whelping, and Elsie and pups are all doing really well
- very lively pups already, motoring around the box. Elsie is
doing a great job of feeding them and keeping them clean, they are very
Juliet is in shock, we were expecting 5 or 6 pups, by dog 5 she was
worried she wouldn't get her much awaited bitch, but Elsie obliged and
then went on to give her a choice!
Dog 1 - had some funny stripes when he was born and Juliet insists he
is some funny colour (his great g-ma is brindle) but to me they just
look like black tris!
Dog 2 - dark faced boy - motors round the box! (hence the blurred
Dog 3 - Tarn's mini-me. A big boy!
Dog 4 - slightly smaller than the rest - the last of the first batch
before Elsie stopped for Tea!
Dog 5 - bit of a beast this one!
Bitch 1 - very prettily marked with almost a full white collar
Dog 6 - smart blaze and white legs
Dog 7 - the dark destroyer. A very dark gorgeous boy - very
Bitch 2 - very pretty with very flashy back legs
Elsie with all her pups looking very content
