NEROCHE HENNESSEY TO DEERANWITH x CANISHURN ZENA PRODUCED 14 PUPPIES BY C SECTION - HER FIRST (AND LAST) SHE WOKE FROM THE ANASTHETIC - LOOKED AT ME AND I SWEAR I HEARD HER SCREAM (REALLY) - NOOOOOO.... YOU MUST BE .......G JOKING... SO THE FUN BEGAN.

We did not cull (not allowed now) but nature did it for us and 9 survive, so far. Weight for weight they are equal or heavier than Willow's breast fed babies and are doing very well.

Our sincere thanks to Sam Taylor (and partner Jedd who backed the fort up her end) Sam had asked if she could come and have some experience of whelping, not only did she assist with me at the C section Sam stayed and helped for a week with the initial difficult feeding times. Rather a baptism of fire but we are eternally grateful. One dog pup was nicknamed by Sam Hungry Hector and it stuck so a H litter it is.

NB Zena is back to normal , she did not bother producing milk and is running around like a spring chicken having got rid of her load.
