Ella and Cedrik
The Ella Story. Ella was due on May 28th and she actually delivered on May 28th. Right on time and a nice afternoon litter. She started about 3:00 and finished at 5:00. Ella only gave us three puppies her last breeding, and her mom Gem only gave us 2, 3, and 4 on her three litters. Our expectations were a small litter as this tends to be somewhat genetic. Well she sure surprised us. She was big so I though 4 and secretly was really hoping for 5. She delivered the puppies with no problem at all, We had 5 beautiful puppies. I fed her, walked her and then let her settle with her puppies for a little while. I came back into the room and moved a puppy and saw a puppy in the sack lying under her back leg. Puppy number six came out without Ella making a sound. I nearly had a heart attack but he was just fine. All the puppies are doing just great.
