Hanna the soon to be Podengo mother

For those of you that have seen pictures of hanna before and know that she is a Portuguese Podengo Grande Smooth and I have her and the only male Buster. (he lives with a nearby friend)

We are expecting puppies with the due date of May 28 - june 2. Thought you might get a kick out of how 'gynormous' she is.

This will be the FIRST Grande litter born in the US.

Is she going to have a "pony"…gggg

Wow, at the end of the video (at a distance) she kinda reminds me of a small goat, LOL! Bless her heart, she is "grande sized" now… But, she is still a cutie!!!:D:D:D:D:D

When are the puppies do?

With her breeding dates - puppies could be born May 28th to June 2nd. (me I'm voting for June 3rd because it is one of my last days at school and I have a BIG meeting that day that I HAVE to be at.

She's huge..!! 😃

Can't wait to see baby pics!!

I'm really looking forward to seeing the pictures of the babies. It's the first Grande I've seen 'in the flesh' (well next best any way).


She's going to have 7 pups I guess… 😃

Our Podenco ibicenco comes out a litter of 11!!! (poor mom)

For those of you who would like to - I do have a little poll of sorts going on on the website below - you can guess the date and the number of puppies. Winner gets to pick a registered name for a puppy (as long as it's not offensive or gross.)


Oh my Lordy, she is huge. I'm suprised she can even move. Good luck with the whelping!

Bless her heart….she even has a pregnant waddle!


of course this is even more complicated by my dog whelping help - my daughter - broke her leg on Friday. At my house even - geez.

So I think I'm on my own for this - whoopie!

Oh my Diana, there's certainly a bunch of little ones in there! Good luck and happy whelping. 🙂 Can't wait to see what you get. Sorry to hear about your daughter, yikes!

I met up with Mary Dixon at the lure trial a couple weeks ago. She has wirehaired medios over here. What a hoot she is! lol We chatted about Hanna and had a good time talking about the similarities of our breeds.


wow, she even waddles, just like I did when I was 9 days out…poor thing. What an amazing feat though, to have the first litter in US...good for y'all and for Hanna. Let us know how things are going. Do you know how many pups to expect?

Oh poor thing!!! They always look like peeing is the worst torture at that stage, and of course they need to pee every thirty seconds! I can't wait to hear how it goes…fingers crossed, and best of luck 🙂

She still however can catch a bird on the fly - I don't know who was more suprised, me, Hanna or the dead black bird.

Good girl 🙂

Staring at about midnight - Hanna started whelping the first Portugues Podengo Grande litter in the US. At noon she surprised me with a 'bonus puppy' so the grand total (unless she downloads another one) is 11.

9 boys and 2 girls. All look hale and hearty. Mom did such a good job I didn't even know she was having themhttp://www.podengo-mediogrande.com go to the whelping box to see some first pictures.

Wow…. 11..... hmmm... at 8 wks you will think you have 1,111

Congrats on a great litter...
