Was this an accident? I'm wondering why you went with a mixed breed. At any rate, nuttin' cuter'n puppies!!
No it was planned. I went with a mixed breed because Rachel's breed was started by inbreeding. Both her and Abner (her brother) are as smart as a whip, but not suited for everyone. And I want to raise another pup to add to my family. I'm keeping a female, my sister in law wants a female, and the family that raised Galloper want a male. I found 3 good forever homes before I even considered doing this. Only had one lockup not multiple matings to help keep the number of puppies down.

Len - they're so beautiful!

She's a lovely Momma.

Now you will be sending me info about how the boys come along, woncha? *wink* View attachment 336794
So far she has done great as a new momma. I went to change the bedding and as quick as I took the puppies out so I could do it she was putting them back in. I won and got it done without upsetting her.

My late Lhasa Momma used to let me do most of the heavy lifting (cleaning butts, so forth). But she did like to bang up against the nest and wake them when she wanted a cuddle. lol

They need me - open the door! *innocently blinking*

After she would dry up, she let them clump around her in the mornings and "nurse" on balls of her fur until they were 16 weeks old (and basically lost interest).

Her pregnancies were Great Secrets between us that made her eyes twinkle. Good mommies are the Best.

The puppies are 2 weeks old and doing fine. their eyes are opening. They each have a good home to go to. Picture 004.jpg Here's a pic from a few minutes ago. Rachel has done a fantastic job at mothering. Abner misses her full time companionship.
