    This is dad.... HANDSOME This mating was not intentional, so just trying to make the best out of a not so perfect situation, they will be gorgeous though.

    Thanks sunny, for sharing in my excitment..... I joined a dog forum for advice etc.... so many haters on there..... Really negative people, ANYWAY She has had an ultrasound (when she was 28 days) they could see 4 but very well could be more, she is going to have an x-ray to just check how big the pups are (and if any are breach) AND if she needs a c section so be it [​IMG] CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THEM !! Of course I'll be doing all the resposible things... eg vaccs, mc, worming.... I have found homes for 3 already (one staying here with us) so if she only has 4 (unlikely though) will only need to home one [​IMG] PS This litter was not intetional, we are just trying to make the best of a not so ideal situation, needless to say she will not be mating again.

    I would love one of those pups! We had a ridgeback for 14 hrs she had to be put down because of arthritis that was years ago and now I have a 13 yr old cattle dog who is the most protective dog I've ever had

    Awww our neighbor had some Heeler x Ridgeback dogs a long time ago. They were great dogs. Beautiful too. They even had the ridges. Can't wait to see what color puppies you get!

    Quote:Well thats a great age for a ridgeback, (thought it was 14 hrs for a sec LOL) But yes very sad when you have to make that decision, our older girl is Dingo X German Shepherd, she is going on 15, still runs and all but I dread the day she gets past it.
