Puppies on the horizon

We don't want to spring the great news on everyone last minute, so… Quito is pregnant! Her due date is July 25th. Clyde is the proud father of this summer litter.


Quito is looking good with a small pregnant belly.

Quito is healthy and happy. She has been eating well. Much of the time, Quito has the run of the kennel. But she also has an indoor whelping box and has been spending time both indoors (on warm days) and outside.

Did Quito and Biscuit break-up? I hope there aren't any hard feelings toward Clyde.

What a wonderful surprise!!!

Mr. Clyde is such great guy and a terrific eater and ChaCha's son, and well, what can you say but WOW for Quito - one more fantastic litter coming up!!!

Thank you so much for the "heads up" - and speaking of "heads up" you can tell Quito that I assumed she was trying on the new RED TEAM helmet, a piece of safety equipment for lead dogs, perhaps?

What great news, puppies.Congrats Quito, Clyde,& SPK.

Cindy Schaus said...

Such happy news! Can't wait for their arrival.

It is good to see her pretty face on the site. That made my day.

I am happy for the kennel, but with the heat over the last few days feeling a might sorry for Quito. I remember one very hot Colorado June when I was similarly encumbered.
