Penny delivered a surprisingly large litter on Friday, May 6 with her labor starting just as Daisy finished up her deliveries. She had TWELVE puppies but two didn't survive the birth
due to congenital defects. The five girls and five boys we have are doing fantastic! Penny stays right by them and nurses around the clock. She keeps them meticulously clean and they rarely make a peep.
Penny lives on a beautiful farm with her family of seven children. The oldest at home, Drew(17), has been shadowing us at deliveries for about a year and a half. Penny delivered her puppies at home with Drew as a fantastic 'mid-wife' (mid-husband?) assisted by his mom Brittany. We were there to help but Drew had things under control. Good job to the Moffitts!
These puppies have had their dew claws removed and they are having neuro-stimulation done each day to help develop resilient neurological systems.
