Well, it is just about 9:15am on Sunday and I thought I would take a quick second to let you all know that six of the seven pirates have arrived! Shasta is doing really well, it took her til the third puppy to realize what she should be doing, but is doing great now. The first little girl arrived at 5:24 and the others have been coming at perfect half hour intervals.
For those who are wondering who the pirates are: Shasta is the little Lab X that came out of the Cardston shelter - pregnant. We wanted to know how many she was having so we took an xray. When you count puppies off of an xray, you count spines and skulls and your number of spines should equal the number of skulls. So, with all the spine and skull talk and needing a theme for this litter, we choose pirates.
There are one or two more pups to come, but so far, I have 3 boys and 3 girls, so please start sending us good pirate names, I already have Sparrow (Jack). Anyway, will be posting pictures on the site in the next day or so.
