Puppies starting to open eyes

Puppies are 10 days old today and we can start to see some little peepers opening.

We barely fit in the laundry basket while the whelping box is being cleaned now. We grow so fast!

Puppies arrived!

We have nine healthy babies!  The first five were born in the wee hours of the morning, June 25th.  The next four came via c-section several hours later.

Mom & babies are all doing great!

Kizzy Pregnancy Progression – Day 41

Kizzy at Day 41:

Pregnant Great Dane

I think she looks huge already.  Went through some old pictures of her mom, Skyy, while pregnant (with Kizzy!) and found a Day 41 image of her:

Have an x-ray scheduled for June 16th, which will give us an idea of how many babies Kizzy has in store for us.

Decided to forgo an ultrasound, based on an already obvious growing belly!

Ever modest, below is a normal position for Miss Kizzy.  I think she is trying to bake the babies in the sun!
