Tried to get some pics up of them, but Im completely useless with technology, so will need Mr Saba to help me !!!
They are now 9 days old, and all are thriving. Vanda is a wonderful attentive Mum, and Im over the moon with how she is doing. The little boy is doing well, and all have well and truely doubled their weights.
This is the second litter, (the other is the ACD litter I had last year), that I have fed adult food all through the bitches pregnancy. Previously I have always put my girls straight onto puppy food from the day they are mated. Both this litter and the ACD one, the pups have doubled their weight, within 4-7 days. When I have been feeding the puppy food to the bitches, the pups usually doubled their weight by about days 10-12, and I was happy with that, (and they always dropped weight for the first day or so). Mmmmm is there something in that !!!
Many congratulations. I always love a litter with majority girls but i know that's a matter of opinion. Glad the boy recovered. He'll possibly be the 'lazy' one. I'd never heard of the liver juice solution and it just shows how useful this forum is - you can never be in this breed long enough to have heard it all! Thanks for the tip.
I so look forward to seeing the pictures.
None of your information is useless!
I'll never be a basenji breeder, but I can tell you that I have learned so much on this forum since I joined a few years back, SO much useful information! I'm so happy to hear that the little dude is doing well, as all the other little divas seem to be. Hopefully we'll get to see pictures soon. Congratulations on what sounds to be a lovely litter!
Ok with Mr Saba's help I think I have this done :-)…
These pics were taken today, they are 16 days old, and completely wasting of time, all day everyday :-)...
Ok so pics 1 and 10 is a girl. Pics 2 and 3 are a girl. Pics 4 and 5 are a girl. Pics 6 and 7 are the little boy, and finally, pics 8 and 9 is a girl… Very proud of my brood and of Vanda who is doing a fantastic job being a Mum !!!
