Well, things did not go exactly as planned. On November 6th, Tuli delivered six puppies in fewer than four hours. They were healthy and active. They weighed between 7.3 ounces and 10.5 ounces. There were three boys and three girls. This is the litter at the beginning.
On day five, three puppies died within four hours. It was unexpected as all had been nursing well and were very active. We lost two girls and one boy. The lab at Texas A & M Vet School is trying to determine the cause of death. Originally, I thought it was Canine Herpes Virus, but the lab says it was not. They are culturing to determine what might have killed the babies.
We have three puppies remaining. They are 17 days old today. They are eating well and are very active. The two boys are over two pounds each and the little girl is at one pound. Tuli is a great mom! It’s interesting that the three smallest puppies at birth are the survivors.
These are Alice and Banter. Eyes are open.
Ezra is a full-faced mismark. He has very interesting markings, including leaves on his back. He will live with Carol in Silver City New Mexico.
I am hoping that these babies continue to thrive. Perhaps the girl is a show puppy as I intend to keep her. We will see how Banter grows and decide where he should live when we are able to evaluate him.
I’m grateful that Tuli is well and thinking good thoughts for the little ones.

The Chaseman has been practicing diligently with his guide Ellen Gerwin. We hope those California sheep are ready for him. He leaves Tuesday for the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of Southern California All-Corgi Trials. The trials are next weekend (April 16-17). Chase is entered in Advanced Sheep and we are hoping (so hard) that he trials well and picks up some more championship points. Here is a photo of Chase at practice. It was taken by Pam Day.

Thursday night the sunset was stunning. As always, I just stepped out the back door. I have a new Canon Elph and took these shots with it.

Last night I caught the sunset — one of those over-powering golden shows that helps me remember why I live in this part of the country.

At 7:00 this morning, the moon was hanging in the west waiting for me to grab my camera. It’s a beautiful way to begin a day.
