The week of June 24th was a busy one in the McMurray house hold. Not only did Indy have her first litter of puppies, but Cookie did as well! Luckily my family lives close and my mom offered to help watch Indys babies and my baby for me for a few hours during the day while I caught up on some sleep. I had been staying up through the nights to make sure all the puppies were happy and safe with their momma. I secretly think Cookie was keeping her puppies in for me until I was caught up on some sleep and ready to take on another litter.
This is Cookie just waiting to have her puppies!
I just HAVE to show you guys this picture of Cookie. I took it about a week before she had her puppies. Side note: Surviving the last little bit of pregnancy is tough on everyone- dog and human alike. (I would know) I feel like this picture shows just how large her belly was, and how ready she was to have these babies!
Cookie was also bred with Puppy Love’s Rocky so it was fun to see the differences in colouring and size between the two litters.
On June 28th 2017 Cookie had EIGHT healthy puppies. Her labour was also exceptionally fast (probably because she was holding them in there)! This time labour started around 4:30 P.M, with puppies every 15 minutes or so. She hardly had time to get situated again before the next puppy came! The last puppy came around 7:00 P.M.
We really lucked out in the momma dog department around here. I had to MAKE Cookie go outside at least once a day for the first 4 days. She was just too busy loving on her little puppies to leave them!
It’s kind of hard to see in this picture. I plan on posting more individual pictures later, but Cookies litter is so different from Indy’s. They all have white markings on them somewhere that make them easy to tell them apart.
She had 3 chocolate with white markings, (2 boys and 1 girl)
1 Apricot girl
4 Black with white markings (1 girl and 3 boys)
I am currently accepting applications for this litter. They will be ready to go to their forever homes on or after August 23rd. Please fill out the application form and I will be in contact with you shortly.
