Just like with any momma nearing delivery Ruby was starting to get big and a bit uncomfortable towards the end of her first pregnancy! She would just sleep and sprawl out on the living room floor!
Even pregnancy looks good on this gal!
She loves her daddy….
Ruby whelped the pups Wednesday beginning around 9:30 am. I had been monitoring her temp and it had dropped a couple degrees the evening before so we figured Wednesday would be the day! My parents are staying with us, so i was excited that i may have some help this time around (Ginger always loved to whelp her pups when i was here alone) Well, my dad was off to work, then Jeff a few hours later, and then a few hours later still my mom left, not even 5 minutes after my mother had left Ruby began panting! Of course! Alrighty, I knew it was about show time, so I wanted to let Rusty and Ginger out to go potty before I kenneled them up. Of course Ruby went out with them, and I watched her closely as she looked like she was trying to poop, and I then saw pre-birth liquid coming from her vagina. I rushed her inside and into the whelping box where I could see the first pup already bulging out. Puppy time!
First pup was born at 9:31am ORCHID (female):
Next pup came shortly after at 9:54 am ROSE (female):
Again about 20 minutes later at 10:12 am HONEY (female):
Just as I finished with Honey we were joined at 10:23 am by AMBER (female):
We had a 2 hour break , where I eventually had Ruby take a few laps down the hallway to keep things moving along….
At 12:10 pm we met our first male COBALT:
Then our final pup made it’s debut at 12:34 pm SCARLET (female):
That’s right folks 5 FEMALES, and 1 MALE! So crazy. We had recieved 3 male deposits, so this was unexpected. In past litters we had always been a little male heavy, so this is new for us!
Tired mamma just an hour or so after whelping the final pup.
Everything that puppies do is cute….they can’t help it.
As you can see Cobalt is super dark!
I love how the inside of the pups ears look in the early stages!
They quickly learn to use one another as pillows!
oh and the stretches…..
And who doesn’t love a little vizsla puppy “comb over”….
This beautiful momma has embraced motherhood so gracefully! She’s a rockstar!
The male is of course spoken for, and 3 females are reserved. At this time we have 2 females still available. If you are interested in putting a deposit down one of the remaining females or on a future litter please contact us by email - firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 303-842-4041
Females are $900.00, and males are $800.00. Deposits are half down, and then you pay the remaining amount at pickup. These pups will be available for pick up beginning July 1st!
