Tilda and Thoreau - 6 pups (4F and 2M) born December 20, 2018. 

All 6 pups have been reserved.

Grand Ch Setherwood Tilda

Tilda is a beautiful mid-size girl with a thick lustrous coat, dark pigmentation and a very sweet soft expression. She is a gentle girl and a pleasure to have in our family. She finished her show championship and grand championship easily and was always in the ribbons. She has all her clearances.

Ch Shaynedoro Dance All Night "Thoreau"

Ch Shaynedoro Dance All Night "Thoreau" is a mid-size male with a pale cream easy-care coat. He was shown sparingly but still did well, finishing his championship easily. His pedigree includes many top Australian and English lines. He has all his clearances.

Birthday - December 20, 2018.

Tilda began contractions at about 5:30 pm on December 20. The first pup was born at 6:35 pm and the last at 9:50. The birth weights ranged from 15 to 19 ounces. All were vigorous and nursed well. Tilda was calm through the evening and did a great job.

December 20 at about 4 pm - bed ruffling in progress.

Tilda and her 6 pups - 4 girls and 2 boys.

Update - December 24, 2018.

The pups are 4 days old today and are all doing very well. Tilda is nursing them full time and they are all growing as a result. The first few days are the most risky as the pups organs begin to function so we are pleased with their progress.

Update - 13 days old - January 2, 2019.

All is well with Tilda and her pups. Despite Tilda's other job nursing Tara's pups, her 6 are growing quickly and developing as expected. Their eyes should be open in another few days.

Here is a picture taken today of Tilda and her 6.

Three weeks old - January 10, 2019.

As Tilda has been helping to feed Tara's pups we have already started to feed them (Tilda's pups) solid food (Royal Canin starter ration soaked in hot water) 4 times each day. Tilda still nurses them a few times during the day and is with them all night. Their eyes are open and they are walking and beginning to play. Their development is normal to this point.

Here are pictures taken during the morning feeding.

Come and get it!
Most are polite.

One is not.

In the end, all find a spot.
