Birthday - April 21, 2016.

Geneva delivered her litter today - 6 females and 5 males. We had thought that she would deliver early, but she waited until her due date. She delivered her first pup at 12:50 am and her last at 7:00 am. The birth weights were normal, ranging from 13.5 to 16.0 ounces. The pups were vigorous at birth and nursed readily. As of 8:50 am, Geneva and her pups are fine and June is exhausted, having slept (or tried to sleep) in the dog room for the past 7 nights to be sure that she was present during the birth.

As there are too many pups to nurse at the same time, the boys will nurse while the girls snooze in the heated green bin. We will switch the groups every 45 minutes. 

It's a big group!

Two minutes old.

Five boys nursing.

Six girls waiting.

One week old - April 28, 2016.

This has been a very difficult week. Four of the pups failed to grow as expected. Sadly, our attempts to supplement them were not successful. Fortunately, the remaining 7 are doing well.

Geneva is doing a great job. She is very dedicated and spends all of her time feeding and cleaning them. Here are pictures taken today.

Nursing frenzy.

Update - May 19, 2016.

Geneva's pups are just over 4 weeks old. Geneva has been and continues to be a very dedicated mother. Although she would love to go for a walk with her friends (soon, Geneva, soon), she spends almost all of her time with them and they are a bit chubby as a result.

We have started to feel solid meals (Royal Canin starter ration soaked until mushy) which they are eating well. They are beginning to look over the side of the whelping box so it will soon be time to remove it and set their area up for the next 4 weeks.

Here are pictures taken during the past several days.

Four weeks old.

Now the fun begins. Geneva's pups are four weeks old and were beginning to look over the side of the whelping box. So we put the pups in green bins while we removed the whelping box and set their area up for the next four weeks. Geneva will not stay with them full-time but will visit to nurse them. We will continue to feed them solid food. As the weeks go by, we will decrease the nursings and increase the solid food feedings until the pups are completely weaned by about 7 weeks of age.

The pups received coloured collars which will be used to identify them until they leave us. The collars are itchy for a short time and all the pups spent the first few minutes scratching vigorously. They adjusted to the new surroundings quickly and were soon playing with each other and with their new toys.

Here are pictures taken on April 20.

It's a big world out there.
I've decided to stay!
Our new place!

At least there are toys.

This new collar is VERY ITCHY!

Hi. I'm Mr Purple. What's your name?
I met the neighbours. They have puppy breath.

We had a visitor for lunch.
We know but we are sleeping here anyway.
Don't worry little ones. All will be well.

Mug shots.

Here they are. We wanted them to show that wonderful Golden smile so we told each one to say "FLEAS!" as we took the pictures. As you can see, it made a big difference.

Update - June 18, 2016.

Unfortunately, other issues have made it difficult to keep this litter up to date. Here are a few pictures taken over the past weeks.

Veterinary exam and first vaccination - June 16.

Dr Dan of the Uxbridge Veterinary Hospital visited today to examine each pup and give the first set of vaccines. Here are pictures of Mr. Black as he went through the process.

First the ears.

Then the eyes,




and heart.

And finally, the first vaccination is given.

Going home - June 18, 2016.

After weeks of waiting, the time to take the pups home finally arrived.
The pups have been weaned, vet-checked, vaccinated, micro-chipped, socialized and matched to their new owners. They are completely ready for the next big adventure.

Here are the happy owners and their new family members. We thank each of them for choosing Setherwood Goldens.
