We are so happy! On the 13:th of March, Nelly gave birth to twelve adorable puppies, six boys and six girls. Unfortunately there were also two stillborn boys.
All twelve seems healthy and grows well so far. It's a lot of work for both Nelly and me!
Nelly won´t leave the puppies even to eat so I serve her food and water in the bed. I have to weigh all the puppies every day to make sure they are growing. I must help the small ones find a nipple and let the big ones wait for a while.
