I awoke at 3 a.m. Thursday morning listening to Hailey's panting, which is a clear indication that she was going into labor. Of course, I never went back to sleep, and it was 3 p.m. before the first puppy arrived - a girl! She took her time having the rest of them, and they were all good size puppies ranging from 13 ounces up to 15+ ounces (that would be Wilson). 5 males followed. I was quite surprised that it is such a small litter - her smallest ever - but I think that is because they are all good sized too.
As most of you know we like to have fun and name the puppies. It helps keep them us keep them straight too.
