Eva's puppies 1 week

The four Eva puppies we are raising here.  The tri male and a blue male are at a fellow breeders home being fostered by another female, "Savanna" who whelped the same day as Eva.  With seven newborns, I was struggling with the two smaller girls and I was worried I'd lose them.  Savanna after the initial double take when she came back to the box and wondered how her brood had doubled in size has taken them in and mothering them as her own.
The blue boys are all doing well and gaining weight.  Our friend says the other two boys are fat and content as well.
Bi-blue boy on the bottom...   
The little girl on the other hand isn't nursing well and so I've been supplementing her with a bottle and tube feeding her as well.  The tri girl unfortunately didn't make it.  It is sometimes difficult being a breeder.



They are lovely puppies...looking forward to seeing the other two fellows...they will be back in a few weeks.

they are beautiful! How are Eva's bigger pups...Sushi and her siblings? We haven't seen them for a while. Have they been to any shows yet?

Suzanne, you'll have to check out Sushi's win photo from last weekend (on the Laureate Facebook page). She won 3 points. Evan is up to 4 points...and Eden will be going to Europe to be shown next month.

Kim...I would be in heaven with that litter!!! All that beautiful blue.
Sorry about the little tri.

I'm so very sorry the little tri girl couldn't hang on. It must have been devastating for you and for Eva as well.
I must have missed the post where you announced Eva was in whelp... I didn't know till I saw these photos today! Who is their daddy?

Everyone looks great, healthy and thriving ... let's hope the girl catches up soon! They're a beautiful litter :).

Congratulations for the beautiful litter!

I hope to see Eden somewhere in Europe, hopefully she would qualify for Crufts! *checking flights to Birmingham already*

They look great Kim.

So so sad when that happens. I'm very sorry, Kim. Sorry for Eva too. But this is a beautiful litter and I'm glad you got some help with the two boys.
