Newborn Anatolians!

Kepi had 8 puppies tonight, sired by Capar of Cardak. Five males and three females. All healthy. Puppies weighed 14.1 to 19.9 oz. Details below.

How I tell the puppies apart:

First-born had both rear double dew claws. 17.8 oz
Third-born had no dew claws. 16.9 oz
Seventh-born had both single dews. 14.1 oz

Second-born had a single left dew and no right dew. 18.3 oz
Fourth-born had both double dews, no white on nose or tail. 19.9 oz
Fifth-born had no dews, no white on nose or tail. 17.6 oz
Sixth-born had both single dews. 18.1 oz
Eighth-born had no dews, some white on nose, and a barely white-tipped tail. 16.9 oz

All puppies are very healthy and active. Mother Kepi is happy and not acting tired. First puppy was whelped at 5 pm. Last puppy was whelped at 7:24 pm. A nice fast delivery. Kepi did whine softly all night last night getting ready for hard labor to kick in. Hope we all sleep well tonight! Puppies are outside in an open shelter with alfalfa under a blanket to keep them warm, with a heat lamp about 4 feet off the ground.
