Time is just flying by for our pups. But who ever thought that when we did this breeding in August on a 25C day, that the pups would not even be a week old, and there is snow on the ground. So we have had to come up with a teat protector for Maggie. Don't want those feeders getting frost bite!
I am trying to keep the pictures up to date. But it seems the video has changed, so I am actually taking the videos with my phone and uploading to YouTube. I am trying to link on this website, but you can just keep checking out YouTube if this one does not work.:D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRrD0x10xhE&feature=em-upload_owner ;

The puppies had made it through the first week of their lives. They are turning from peanuts into interesting beings learning to crawl and walk, and are getting quite vocal. Maggie is being a supper Mom, keeping them fed and clean.

Today was x-ray time. And yes we thought Maggie was getting big and yes we thought maybe another litter of 8....maybe. So do your best... there are eight for sure, and counts are 10 or 11 depending on what you attach to what. I guess Maggie and Bustin' don't have a fertility issue:lol:
Pups expected on the ground next Friday, if Maggie can hold onto them for that long!

After an exciting roadtrip to Illinois this summer, we are happy to report that Maggie and Bustin did it right, and they are going to have pups!
Bustin' also got the final leg of his Master Hunter's this past weekend, so he is one chocolate lab that we and the Butikas's are really proud of right now! He is the Man! Congratulations Bill and Marcia!
Maggie will get an x-ray on October 19, to confirm numbers, always useful during whelping so we know when to relax and rest. The litter is expected to arrive on October 26. So it will be a busy fall here at the Chocolate Clan.
