Ch O'Quince's Stole The Show at Bowbell "Kygo"

Kygo was imported as a puppy from the O'Quince kennels of Indiana, USA, by Bowbell kennels of Port Hope, Ontario. He comes from a long and distinguished line of titled Goldens from the show and obedience rings. He is a mid-sized boy with a medium-coloured easy-care coat. He has very dark eyes and pigmentation. He achieved his Canadian show championship handled exclusively by his owner. He has health clearances for hips, elbows, heart and eyes. 

Kygo has sired several litters of puppies whose outstanding quality is their easy-going and biddable nature.

Birthday - July 12, 2019

Millie began labour at about noon and delivered her first pup at 1:25 pm. At 7:45 pm she delivered number 8. She still had 8 by 10:15 even though there were more pups to deliver. After consulting with Dr. Doner at the Beaverton Vet Services, the final 3 were delivered by C-section. Millie came through the surgery without problem. 

Millie is nursing and cleaning her pups and the pups are nursing well. Their average birth weight was just over 1 pound which is normal. To be sure that all the pups have access to milk, we are keeping 5 in a heated green bin while the smallest pup and the remaining 5 are with Millie. Every hour, we switch (the smallest pup stays with Millie). Millie will have all 11 during the night and we will check her at about 3 am to be sure that all is OK, let her out and give her a few snacks.

Here are pictures taken on July 13.

Nine days old - July 21, 2019.

Millie and her 11 pups are doing well. She is still attentive, spending most of her time in the whelping box, feeding and cleaning. The pups are growing and developing normally. The two pups wearing collars were smaller but have caught up with the others so we will soon remove the collars. We are still keeping a few in the green bin to allow the others better access to the milk and rotating each hour during the day. Millie has all 11 at night and we check on her each night at about 2:30 am.

First feeding - July 21, 2019.

What IS this?

Early adapters.

We're all in!

New facilities - August 7.

The pups were 3 weeks and 5 days old when we decided that they needed more space. So we removed the whelping box and reorganized the space that they will live in until Tilda's pups have left. After that, they will have both spaces until they leave us.

As usual, the pups soon adjusted to the new area. Millie will nurse them on a schedule and we will feed them solid food.
The number of nursings will decrease each week while the number of solid meals will increase until the pups are completely weaned at about 7 weeks of age.
