This is how the litter looks when DRY! :-)
Well, there were several surprises this morning. When I left Kepi last night there were 8 puppies. This morning there were 10, although one was no longer alive. So we gained two and lost one in the night. The two new puppies were male and the lost puppy was male. Of the 10 in the litter, 5 were brindle, which makes half the litter brindle. The pup we lost was brindle. Final tally is 6 males: 3 fawn, 2 dark brindle, and 1 light brindle; and 3 females: 2 fawn and 1 dark brindle. All puppies are healthy and active, and today weigh between 14.8 to 20.8 ounces. I guess Kepi and Capar can make a good-sized litter! Kepi was treated to cottage cheese and then some leftover warmed and watered down spaghetti sauce with meatballs over some kibbles this morning. She was hungry!
