Our Q-litter is now 2 1/2 weeks old. At the beginning there was a bit of a slow start. Lotta did not have enough milk. Yesterday the puppies had their first meat ball. They really enjoyed this first solid meal, although it was rather tiny.
The following video has been taken September 22nd when the puppies were almost one week old.
On the September 29th I took the following photos of the puppies. I hope you will enjoy this small gallery.
Today we have had a bank holiday. I used the time to set up the run in front of the whelping box. First the puppies had to move out of the whelping box for changing the bedding and to put up the small run.
When I put the puppies back the first ones tried to explore the new freedom. Leaving the whelping box was not a big deal, but returning seemed to be impossible. The puppies lay on their tummies and screamed out loud! I guess it will take a couple days until they have learnt. So far the whelping box is closed again...
Since a couple days the puppies started to open their eyes. This is always a fun time as they start to move around a lot more.
This moring Lotta gave birth to 8 puppies. They were born between 1.45 am and 9.10 am.
There are 4 boys and 4 girls. Girls and boys were taking turns coming into this world. They are all liver-white.
Now we hope that they will develop really well. You will find puppy news regularly on this page.
Following some impressions out of the whelping box (all Photos Ulf F. Baumann).
Poppe, as the male is also known, is a male which I am watching since a while. He is now about 3 1/2 years old. When I have seen the first photos of him at the age of 6 months I knew that I have to watch him a bit closer. I liked his pedigree and his exterieur spoke already at this young age for him.
There was one of the other aspirant as Sire of this litter to come, but in the end I decided to use Poppe as I had the most information about him and I just like him a lot. Poppe is a very friendly dog and has also working ability which he shows when tracking. He has also some offspring who are working really well.
Following I introduce the Sire and Dam of this litter:
C.I.E. (to be confirmed)
As already mentioned Poppe is a very friendly male with best temperament. He is a great mover and moves like a Springer is supposed to move. Recently he won at the National and International Show in Hanover the Group two days in a row. He also was BIS at the Club Show of the Springer Klubben 2016.
Poppe shows also working ability. His owner is tracking with him, what he loves. His father is "Stardom Special Effect", a male who was trained for hunting in Sweden and competed in Field Trials.
