Selia and pups, Day 5.  All are fat and healthy.  What fun!

Saturday, May 4, 2013

Selia puppies arrived early on May 2nd! We have 7 healthy puppies
, 5 girls, 2 boys. 2 of the girls are patched, one double ear, one single ear. Ear patch girls are definitely black, 2 of the non-patched girls are black, one black boy, withholding a decision on whether one boy and one girl are livers! Any livers would be sired by Ghost, the blacks will have to wait until DNA results to know if they are Corey's or Ghosts. All are fat and robust, weighing between 14.8 and 16.1 ounces

Puppies expected! Ultrasound showed at least 7, but expect there are several more! Fiacre, Patch Mountain and Blackthorn Dalmatians are proud to announce:

GCH CH CT Blackthorn Coreopis of PatchMtn RA BN OA OAJ NF RD CAN CH TDX x GCH Fiacre's Seeing Is Believing (LUA)
CH Black Thorn's Lucas's Legend NJP THD CGC TDI x GCH Fiacre's Seeing Is Believing

Because the Corey breeding was using frozen semen, we wanted to improve our chances of puppies so then followed with a fresh cover using his littermate Ghost.

Since Ghost is liver factored, we will know right away who is the sire of the brown kids - the others we will know after the DNA results are in. We are pleased to be able to include Ghost in this project. He is one of the first Dalmatian Therapy Dogs recognized by the AKC for all their work in the community.

Puppies from the first litter are just now making their appearance in the show ring. Darius - owned and shown by Carol Chase - was BOB for a 4 point major last weekend - his first time out at the dog shows.

And, ALL have their CHIC numbers. All puppies will be LUA.

More info will be on my website.
