I went to the CP ranch to help with Nels delivery this weekend thinking delivery was going to be any second, but there were no pups by the time I left to take the kids trick or treating on Monday.  Tuesday morning I woke up and could not believe poor Nel had not delivered her puppies.  When I was there this weekend Nel was bigger then any dog I have ever seen--her abdomen measured THIRTY  THREE inches.  WOWZER.  She could not step over the railing into the whelping box and was so tired you could see what an effort it was to even pick up her head.  Karen decided to have a csection done which turned out to be a really good call. 

Luckily I got to be on the puppy team to meet and greet the new pups and welcome them into the world aka rub and irritate them so they got dried and breathing well after their birth.  I love the little black girl that Karen is holding in the video and says she is a tri, she has hardly any white but has a pie shape dot on the back of her neck, and she is a little girl.  The other favorite so far is the little boy that is almost all white with a huge white spot on the top of his head. 

I got to go home with the new family help with weights and getting people to nurse, and settled in.  The Final count was 9 pups, most around 9 ounches, so not huge babies, 5 girls and 4 boys. .

Aw, what a wonderful video! I definitely have a huge soft spot for this litter, it was great to see them just being born. I'm a sucker for the white heads, my favorite too. ;-)

good heavens I am glad you knew what I meant, I meant one of my favorites is the boy with the white head and the big dot on his head, VERY cute. I have always loved Nel but after this weekend I am so much more in love with her, Haku is so lucky to have such a sweet Mama, one of the very nicest dogs I know ;-)

Well, it sounds like you will be doing some help whelping next spring???? ;-), that will be very cool, and bet Pix would be super proud of her Mama and proud of her new sibs--little cuties
