Puppy updateJanuary 12, 2013
Unfortunately last Tuesday it appears that the male with the brown collar wasn't strong enough. We noted that he was limp and tried everything to give him a boost but unfortunately that wasn't enough. The male with the brown collar has got the name Social Giant Back in Time and passed away Tuesday afternoon. With the other puppies everything is going well. They started to become some good weights and are drinking a lot at mommy Dizzy. She is taking very good care of them. Dizzy herself is luckily doing also fine, she began to become some weight herself (because of her very heavy belly during the pregnancy there wasn't much room for food) and she enjoys it a lot to be with her puppies. Meanwhile we have chosen a theme and the names for this litter. The theme is 'Rapper: Mr. Worldwide' en the names you can find on the litter-page. We have also placed lots of new pictures!

Dizzy has had a very hard time, especially the last weeks, but she is doing very well. She is very sweet for her puppies and would almost don't even leave for a small walk. The first pictures are on the litter-page.
