Announcing the Q pups!

Hunter went into labor yesterday--and they were not petite small things, unfortunately. The first one down the chute was a big 18 oz bicolor boy. He got pretty stuck and I had to help pull him out.

Over the next 14 hours, she delivered the rest of the pups. There were a few stillborn, but in the end, I have four beautiful and strong pups--1 boy and 3 girls. One of the girls is a gorgeous sable, the rest are bicolors.

The sire of the litter is V-Bandit vom Wolfsheim, KK1a, SchH3, FH--the same as the sire of the P litter. The combo with Hunter should make some beautiful, strong working dogs.

This litter is the Q litter, so I'll be coming up with some Q puppy baby names... Quick, Quest, Quasar, Quill, Query, Quandary....  (Click for puppy pedigree.)

Here, have some pictures from this afternoon!

Look at the head on this girl!
