One week old!

Jack and Rose are doing great... both have doubled in size and are getting lots of love from Daisy.  I love the little white stripe on Rose's forehead.. hopefully it will grow into the perfect white ponytail when it's long enough.  We are now patiently waiting for their eyes to open up and then they will start to explore.  It's always fun to get some video of the puppies as they start to wobble around.  Right now all they do is sleep, eat and poop.

Pups first vet check up

Pups went to the vet to have their first check up.  They did great!  The vet removed their dewclaws and docked their tails while we were there.  Daisy did not like being separated from her pups but she survived.  Here are some pics from today.

Jack and Rose

I really wasn't expecting Daisy to have the puppies last night.  She hasn't been resting and all stretched out like she usually is the last few days before she delivers.  I'm guessing it's because of the small litter she had.  We had some difficulties getting her to tie with Dewey due to the difference in size.  However, I'm excited to see these two grow up!

Jack weighed in at a whopping 6.7 ounces and our cute little Rose is 5.2 ounces.  Jack is going to look like Montana when his colors change, and Rose will have the black body and brown legs/face as most Yorkies look like.  Both are going to be super cute!  Jack is the most vocal and the biggest eater, luckily there is plenty of milk for the both of them. 

Montana went down to spend some time with her Grandma Ella and Aunt Chloe, while Daisy is on full Mommy patrol.  Jake is staying clear out of her visual in hopes of not upsetting her.  The next few days should be pure craziness!

We have a new litter!

Daisy had two super cute puppies in the middle of the night.....  Jack and Rose...

Puppy watch 2011

Well Daisy is really starting to get big, she should have the puppies by Sunday or Monday.  I've set up her whelping box and she is starting to nest and get ready for delivery.  I've gathered all the things I need for the whelp, so now we just sit and wait.

It will be interesting to see if litter #3 comes at the same time as the previous litters.  Both litters were born on day 61 and the deliveries started between 7 and 8 pm.  Since I used the same stud last year we are hoping for another 50/50 mix of boys and girls !  It will be interesting to see if they resemble the first litter or not. Right now I'm leaning towards using the names Jack and Rose, Rhett and Scarlet.  However I haven't really found the last couple of names.  I like Romeo but not Juliet.  Sonny and Cher just aren't meshing either.  However I do love the movie "The Notebook" and I like the thought of Noah and Allie.. but my new niece is named Allie.  Oh well I have a week to find the right fit!  LOL

Here is a pic of the dogs that seem to have taken over my couch!
