Eva's pups Sept 3/11

Eva's pups are doing well.  The four that are here are growing steadily, and have their eyes open and now can hear as well.
The little girl hasn't had an easy start.  A week ago Friday she spent the day at the Vet in critical condition due to an infection and dehydration.  She came home with medicine to give sub-q as well as ringers solution if required.  For several days we weren't sure if she'd make it or not.  Then by Tuesday she started to turn the corner and she hasn't looked back.

She is still being bottle fed, but I think she is double dipping! She doesn't look like a 'bottle baby' in that her coat has good tone and she is really quite plump.  Regardless, she will get her four bottles a day until we start to wean them next week.

The group...there is a big blue boy, the girl has the large patch on the right side as you look at her and then the other blue boy.  The bi-blue is out of focus in front.

Oh, Kim, they are beautiful. Best wishes for lots of champions. =)

Glad to see all the beautiful babies, especially that little girl! Her name is going to have some kind of determination involved!

Oh so precious. I want the big blue boy, want the big blue boy!!! xo

In the picture of her on her back, she has that little glimmer which makes one suspect she is going to be the pistol of the group! She is gorgeous!
Way to go Eva!

I just looked at them again... in the photo with LuAnne, I can't decide if your little one is going to be a world-class flirt or if she is demonstrating early mastry of the Sheltie-eye-roll!

Thanks everyone for your comments. I'm so relieved the little girl is doing better. It has taken a lot of work to get her this far, and a lot of help from my friends and family.
She is pretty sweet Suzanne...I haven't noticed any of Trix's temper in her. Mostly she is just milk drunk and rolling around. She can hardly hold her head up at this age, or keep her eyes open very long. :-)

she is absolutely gorgeous!

And when I said "pistol" I didn't mean like you have described Trix... I meant like Eva and Sushi... tons of fun.

Suzanne, I hope she'll be a pistol (by your definition of the word). :-) She is a little fighter, that is for sure. I am just happy she's survived the rough start.

So glad to hear that the little girl is doing much better. She will likely need some socialization away from all of those boys!

The girl is a standout in the group, absolutely. Maybe a candidate for that name you have dibs on?? :) Love the smaller blue boy, so soft and powdery. Boo and Eva are both such good supervisors ... it's just a beautiful litter!!!

Oh my goodness, they're beautiful!! Looking forward to seeing this blue litter growing up.

I especially love the shot of LuAnne with the puppy.

OH MY! How do you not go around your house all day squealing? Or maybe you do go around your house all day squealing.
