Nazli X Capar puppies are finally here!

Nazli had TWO puppies today - C-section. There was a dead pup inside that probably prevented the correct body communications to start the birth process. Puppies were 2 days overdue. Above left is brindle female. Above right is fawn male. Both are healthy and strong. Female weighed 27.1 oz. Male weighed 24.6 oz. The mother is doing well and a great caretaker. She is picking them up and moving them around with her mouth exactly where she wants them, despite their squeals of protest! They are in a home-made whelping box in an outdoor shelter that is in a fenced area inside the goat pasture next to the goat feeder. Stay tuned for weekly updates and photos!
