A few days earlier than expected, Penikka decided to have her puppies (sire is Matka), the scan at 4 weeks had suggested 5 possibly 6 expected, so we (Carol, Penikka's real mum & myself) were surprised and delighted when Penikka had SEVEN.
As would be expected in a larger than average litter to a smaller framed mum, the pups birth weights were slightly down on previous litters, but the pups came out very feisty and soon started tucking into the milk bar!For ease of identification - they have been given names which are the Finnish for the number they were in the litter; Yksi to Seitsemän (one to seven). I will be testing all new puppy buyers on how well they can count to seven in Finnish! Rather than show the weights in isolation each week here, there is a separate blog page (see above) which tabulates the weights each week.
So I guess you are all waiting for the pictures! (clicking on thumbnails will open larger picture)
