Introducing Misty's 2nd litter .... whelped March 5, 2011

Misty and Reike's litter

Misty whelped seven puppies on Saturday, March 5th.  The first pup arrived stillborn during Misty’s visit to the vets for her puppy count x-ray.  Six more small puppies arrived at home within the next 2 ½ hours.  Sadly we lost three puppies in the first two days in spite of efforts to supplement and help them nurse. The remaining three pups (one male and 2 females) are nursing well & gaining weight and strength each day.  We’ve named the entire litter for the Icelandic/Arctic animals in honor of Heather Jeanblanc (Heimskauts Reike’s breeder) and her polar dogs.
