The puppies were born today. We were eagerly awaiting their arrival and had the nursery and blankets ready. This morning, I had just taken Saskia, my youngest daughter to the park, about a quarter mile from our home, to play with her on the swing set. While we there, my son, Jackson came running across the field, yelling "Ginger had a puppy! Ginger had a puppy!" We quickly rushed home to provide care for Ginger during her labor.
Over the next 6 hours or so Ginger had her first litter of 9 healthy puppies. She is such a good mother. She cleaned them all up very clean and began nursing them immediately...our children are just thrilled.
More details coming shortly...in the meantime I must go check on the puppies.
