They are here! (Brindle Brigade!)

They are HERE!! The Higgins x Ell pups have arrived. As expected, they are ALL brindles, some a bit darker, but all brindles. 6 boys and 4 girls, lasting over 14 hrs. Ell FREE WHELPED them all, and they are all between 9 and 10 oz (except for the Mini - Ell who was 11.5 oz) so a very consistent litter. Ell is only 25 pounds so having this many pups in her was painful to watch, but she is every proud, ever a good mother and very exhausted! She does have enough room at the milk bar for them all, but will try and rotate them just to ensure everyone gets some of the best 'table settings' (as my Grandpa calls them).

The whole gang is here

Wow; unbelievable that a 25 lb. mama could carry that much "puppy"!!! What a nice, big litter; congratulations!
