    Everyone felt nervous and excited as Snow White finally had her day (yesterday)! She has 9 and it's her 4th delivery. She used to have 7. They are really so cute -4 yellow, 4 black, and 1 choc. The choc is hiding though.

    Thanks! :) Perhaps you were thinking of my other Lab (male) - the father of these pups, I mean.. He's black.

    They are very cute, but the thought of a 3 year old bitch having had 4 deliveries makes me feel very sad indeed I am afraid :(.

    She's doing fine. She loves them and is very caring with her pups. My grandmother warned me before about her belief of not keeping any offspring. Well, probably I'll decide after a month or so. Most of the pups have been reserved by some friends.

    I'm sorry I had not clearly explained. On her 1st, she had 7. The second was an accident. Our male guard dog broke in there, we were shocked to find out she was pregnant with 7 again. For the 3rd one, she had miscarriage, and this 4th is accidental again. My black Lab accidentally broke in. I have to take her to the vet so that this will be her last. I fear she might have hip dysplasia later on which is very common in Labs. The family loves her so much. She is our first Lab.

    I don't want to argue and ruin your thread, but this post makes me feel even sadder for many reasons :(. I do hope that she is spayed ASAP - don't doubt that you love your dog, but really do hope that you will protect her (and any other dogs you may have) from now on. There are many threads on here dedicated to the correct way to go about breeding (or why it is not a good idea for many people to breed) which might be worth a read if you ever consider another litter from another dog.

    oh dear. How very sad for the bitch and the pups too if the bitch has HD

    In fact I rather doubt if this story is true.

    :eek: :eek: she's on her FOURTH litter at 3 years old :eek:


    Which bit didn't you explain :( on the "what other dogs do you want" you didn't even mention your yellow Lab but wanted what a Goldie and a Rottie by the end of the year if you have the money :(

    Accidents do happen - I have four entire girls and 2 entire boys - I would never say never but...........

    3 surviving litters in 3 years plus a loss and never kept a pup but want other breeds - truly words fail me :(

    :confused: why do you 'fear' she might have hip dysplasia 'later on' :confused:

    I take it by this that neither parent has been hipscored, and even less likely eye tests, elbow scores or any DNA tests.

    Let's dispel the myths now shall we? HD exists in the breed which is why we have health tests to minimise the risks - it is however NOT very common - at least not in responsibly bred dogs - can't say the same for PF and BYB unfortunately :(
