    I have some adorable photos to post, and also some very sad news. Isobel passed away on Sunday morning. Puppies were fed, and were all down sleeping, and I was about to get out of the whelping box when she woke from sleep screaming, seizing, and urinating. Despite my best efforts, I was unable to save her, and she died in my hands within moments. I cannot express the level of my shock and devastation. On necropsy, little Isobel had a grossly enlarged heart and liver. This is assumed to be a congenital defect. None of the other puppies share the same problem. This is a very sad part of being a breeder. I will never forget this sweet little puppy, and I miss her every time I’m in the box and now only count 6 puppies.

    RIP Baby Isobel (pink collar)

    In other news, Penny has produced her 6th OFA excellent offspring. Out of 15 puppies total, she has produced 6 OFA excellent and 4 OFA good.
