1 week old

Where has the first week gone? Pups are now 1 week old and Orchid is feeding them well, they are all over 1 kg in weight, well ahead for their age. Now waiting on their eyes opening which should be in the next few days.

Babies are here

After 4 hours labour, Orchid managed to get the pups out. First one was 615 grams in weight, no wonder he was a bit stuck! Anyway, she's had 3 boys, all big and ranging from light to dark in colour. Now its resting time for her, I wish I could get a few hour sleep!

Things are starting to happen....

Orchids temperature dropped late last night and she has been restless all night. This is first stage of whelping and the time can vary on how long this last to the first pups arriving, so we will just have to wait now.

Still waiting........

Well the official due date is today, but looks like Orchid is going to make us wait a little longer, she's far too busy eating her roast bone to go into labour at the moment!

Welcome to Beaupippin Golden Retrievers Blog

As I have had so many problems lately with my current website provider, I have decided to set up a blog for my kennel as well to keep everyone up to date on what is happening. I have a seperate page for each dog too which gives there details/pedigrees etc and what they have been up to.
It will take a little while to set up, but hopefully it will fill the gap so to speak.
Enjoy reading.
