Belle/Siege Litter

The following photos are of Belle and Siege's pups which were born on May 7,2009.

We have 9 pups, 4 females and 5 males, all with good ridges without extra crowns. They have a lovely colour,which is hard to see clearly under the heat lamp when they are still in the whelping box.

I will be putting up photos of the pups as they grow, as a running record of their development while they are with us. I hope you enjoy them.

The stacked photos were taken when they were 7 weeks and 4 days old. We gave each pup a 'nickname' so that we could tell them apart. This was the first time they had been placed on the table and a 'formal' photo taken. Some of the pups were not too keen to have their photos taken!

Belle is an excellent mum, and takes wonderful care of her pups.
