Day 3 and everyone looks good! Momma is a good post-birth weight and is doing fabulously with lots of milk. She's handling the 9 pups like a champ. All babies are up to a decent weight with only 2 that are lagging a bit (they were smallest at birth) but catching up to their sibs daily.
Tomorrow is nails and tails and a check-up at the repro vet and then we set up for round 2 for the next and final litter of 2018 which is due in just under 2 weeks from now. Crossing fingers for a healthy and successful whelping of tri-color pups from our first timer black-head girl!
PS... yes she needs her hind nails trimmed lol. You do -not- trim her nails while pregnant, she will protest vehemently, so we leave them alone to lessen stress while pregnant. Believe me, we're itching to take her talons away asap.
