This is Dakota...the Happiest Mom out there. She delivered 7 healthy Golden Retriever pups on Friday pm. Since delivering them she just dotes on them...only leaving them on 10 minute breaks a few times each day.
All the pups are healthy and Dakota certainly keeps them clean.
This photo shows the first full feeding time.
This little guy is only 1 day old and loves to sleep on his Mom's paw. After feeding he slowly makes his way to a paw and sleeps. Right now pups are not terribly cute since their eyes are still closed.
This is Dakota's first litter and she is showing great maternal ability...loves her pups, feeds them almost constantly and is so happy to have people oohing and aweing over them. No time for cards today but hopefully really soon.
Hugs from the Kennel....with these pups we have 12 dogs/pups in our home!
