    Thought i'd share as we are VERY excited about this litter. It wasn't great timing as the pug brought the lab bitch into season with her so we have the two litters fairly close together... but i guess in a way that can be good as you have all the stress and work in one go :rolleyes:

    But anyway, we didnt have particularly good matings as Cassie was rather unhelpful, she was just being a tart and kept trying to roll over :blushing: And we were sure she hadnt taken so didnt give much thought to it until i noticed she was looking rather round (you know, round puppy belly shape rather than fat belly??) so took her yesterday to be scanned and she has at least 8 puppies in there :D Her mum had 10 so its not suprising she would have a big litter but as we didnt get a decent mating thats really good :D

    Anyway, they should all be black and they are going to be a beautiful litter i think. One we had planned before Cassie was even born :D She is due in about 3 weeks so keeping everything crossed for happy, healthy mum and pups!

    And just cos im the health test freak, here's our results:

    Beau (daddy):

    Hips: 2/3
    Elbows: 0
    Clear eyes
    Optigen Clear


    Cassia (mum):

    Hips: 0/0
    Elbows: 1
    Clear eyes (did expire a couple of weeks ago so need to get that redone now :rolleyes:)
    Awaiting Optigen results but she can be no worse than Carrier by parentage :)


    And here they are:

    Beau:

    Thanks all.

    Will have to try to resist the temptation to keep all of these too.. I think 8+ labrador pups might be a bit much :D lol!!!


    Judith - are all your babies gone now??

    Lovely looking dogs! and so nice that you have all the health checks! especially elbows because a lot of people dont bother, good luck they should be nice looking pups, would be interested myself if I was in a position to have a pup.

    Thanks everyone for the replies!!

    We do already have some people interested in these puppies which is great, but we werent expecting such a huge litter lol!! 2 of the people having a pup are people who have had pups previously from us which is always lovely. One of them has Cassia's litter sister so they're very excited about having a Cassia puppy :D And hopefully we will have a nice puppy to keep of course!!

    Kinjilabs - So few people do the health tests compared to the number of pups born each year. Its a little pet hate of mine lol!
