Just wanted to let all of you that have been waiting on our friend Skila to have her puppies know that they arrived early hours of this morning (18 August).
Those of you that guessed she would mainly have boys were right - and if you guessed 6 or more you were right again. Skila has one little girl and five boys (of course the girl was assertive and used her initiative and managed to push her way ahead of the boys to arrive first).
All of the puppies are black and white - three have white open faces and white around their necks, one has mainly black on his face with a white strip on the back of his shoulder/neck and two other little boys are almost all white - they both have a couple of black spots on their eye and ear area.
Puppy #1 - Girl, 380 grams, born 1:00am
Puppy #2 - Boy, 308 grams, born 1:46am
Puppy #3 - Boy, 288 grams, born 2:21am
Puppy #4 - Boy, 378 grams, born 3:54am
Puppy #5 - Boy, 340 grams, born 4:44am
Puppy #6 - Boy, 374 grams, born 5:33am
We are very excited for Skila and the bipeds, they all did very well delivering the puppies safely. We were pretty annoyed with Mom last night as she made us get off the bed at 1am and put us outside in our compound and didn't come home till 9am. She showed us some photos of the puppies and they are pretty cute so we forgive her now.
Prince and me are a bit disappointed as we were only allowed to play with Sooty and Teddy when we went round to visit tonight and not Skila and her puppies. We can't wait for them to get bigger:)
Princey will give you an update on the puppies progress real soon.
