Our Tina delivered 3 girls and 4 boys on 19th of January!
Exciting days ahead at Firstprizebears kennel!
Tina gave birth to 7 beautiful black and white beardies on January 18th-19th night. Tina decided to give birth on day 61 of her pregnancy, can’t blame her, she was full of puppies…and rather heavy ones…
Her delivery was like from a book. The mucus plug came out at 20:50 and the first pup showed up at 21:15…
The first one was a beautiful purple girl weighing 380 g, not long after at 21:20 her brother light blue boy was born weighing 415 g.
After a strong start, Tina decided to rest for a bit and allow puppies to nurse. Meanwhile, we gave her some water and some food to boost her energy.
After almost 2 hours of rest Tina started having contractions again and gave birth to a yellow boy at 23:18 weighing 370 g.
After that Tina decided that she was done for the day and rested for around 1.5h.
The fourth one was a green female at 00:50 weighing 360 g. 25 minutes later at 01:15 Tina delivered the fifth one – a pink male puppy weighing 385 g. Not long after at 01:34 red male weighing 355 g joined the group.
After this Tina took another break and we were not sure if the sixth one was the last puppy as the x-ray picture was not clear and we had different guesses – 5 or 6…maybe 7?
Lucky 7 it is!
The last one chose a magical number 03:33, the dark blue girl was born weighing 370 g.
This was Tina’s and mine first litter, and it’s always going to be the most special one 💜
Tina has great motherly instincts and not much help is needed from our side. What a perfect mom she is, could not be more proud of her She is simply the best!
All the babies are healthy and with full bellies, enjoying all the attention from mum and human family 🥰
It is a miracle to see them coming and growing and changing so quickly, even showing some character already! 😎💤🍽️😈😇
Big thanks to my mentor and founder of the kennel Cornelia Loest for always being on the phone to answer all the questions and for support throughout this journey! 🙏❤️
