4 puppies

After a long two days Zen finally decided to have the puppies this afternoon. I think she is now done as it has been 2.5 hours since the last puppy and she seems fairly settled. I was really hoping there was another one or two in there but it is just not meant to be. I feel bad for the people that were hoping for puppies. :-( I certainly understand the disappointment.

There are two boys and two girls; all weighing a healthy 8 ounces. The first boy gave us a scare as Zen was taking a long time to get him out. We had just called the vet and were contemplating rushing her off to the vet. We gave it one last try and Lisa held Zen while I pulled the pup out. He was fine and active and we have now named him "FAT HEAD" for getting his fat head stuck and making me crazy!

I am really tired and not sure how we will run tomorrow at Crufts but I am going to give it a good try! Luckily Lisa has offered to stay over tonight so I can get some sleep and will stay to keep an eye on Zen and pups tomorrow.

They are great! Well done to Zen and to you and Lisa! I used to look after a pony called fat head and he was the best! His real name was Zag.

Congratulations to Zen (come on - she did all the work!) on a beautiful litter. Bernadette, I know you will raise these puppies to be all that they can be as you are an expert at it! And props also to Lisa - you are a good friend and Bernadette is blessed to call you one of hers.

Hope you did well at Crufts!

Enjoy those babies.
