Dachshund Puppies....Lots and Lots of Dachshund Puppies!

As you can see, Strudel is an excellent mother to her new litter of puppies. : )

The first puppy arrived at 11:45 PM last night. We continued to have puppies arrive about every 15 or 20 minutes until all *8* had been born. Yes, *8*!

Strudel did excellently throughout the deliveries. She welcomed the arrival of 4 black and tan boys and 4 black and tan girls.


I am very sad to report that one of the little males didn't make it. He was born with a severe cleft palate and passed away early this morning. We buried him today.

But, all the others are vigorous, nursing well, and doing great! Enjoy the pictures and I'll be posting regular updated pictures of their growth and progress.


Now I think I need another nap. : )

Have a wonderful upcoming week and you remain in my prayers always.

Your Friend,

Shelly

Oh my goodness. Seven adorable puppies! We are sorry that the 8th little guy did not make it. They are just the cutest things ever. If we can convince Teddy, we would love to have one. They are certainly cute little buggers! I bet you guys must be exhausted. Sleep well and let Strudel do the work of being the good mom. Wonder what Doogie thinks about the "chillin?"...talk to you soon! Love to all.

Congrats! Very cute puppies, but I bet it was a long night for you! Thanks for stopping over at my blog. The curtains are a pattern from Hardy Hass of Hassdesigns.com I was testing the pattern for him and I am not sure when they will go up for sale. It is a lovely pattern!

I'm so sorry about the loss of your puppy. The rest of the puppies sure look like they are doing well.

Thanks for all the comments and yes, the puppies are wonderful!

And, yes, my computer went belly up again...and thanks to Zach, it is now up and running again. I've also been under the weather again, but am slowly gaining speed again.

Your Friend,
