Puppies are here :)

For those not on Facebook...the puppies are here!!

I will add photos however here first. Group photos most likely now and individual photos will be taken this afternoon. I hate to disrupt them too many times :)

I thought initially this was a tan pointed black/white male, but it appears to be just very bright brindle pointing. 'le sigh'. I'll watch him to see....
The first four... from left to right....brindle girl, red/sable boy, black/white brindle point girl, black/white brindle point boy.

Ell with seven pups before the last puppy came....
Ell with her seven live pups.
This morning at 12 hours of age....This is the photo with the brindle girl who has the small dot almost touching or touching her eye. it may 'grow' as she ages too. we'll be watching.
Both reds/sables have masks.
Final count: 1 red/sable male, 1 red/sable female, 1 black/white brindle pointed girl, 2 black/white brindle pointed boys, 1 possible tan point black/white male, 1 red brindle female. We lost the brown brindle female with nice markings five hours after the 'last' pup.

More story later...i need to take a nap.

They're beautiful.

That one boy could still have tan points. We'll have to wait and see.

A multi-color litter! It makes it so much easier to keep track of each of them. They look very nice -- I'll be stalking your blog for more photos (I have permanent puppy fever!).

Great colors and crome, congratulations!

They do look tan to me...remember they tend to clear up as they grow :)
