Between the hours of 9:30 PM Tuesday night and 4:30 AM on Wednesday morning, the 8 puppies of Bluestem Kennels “E” Litter were whelped by Sue. A ninth puppy arrived later on, but was not properly developed and the vet recommended euthanization today. There are 6 girls and 2 boys. I had hoped to have the energy to put together a video to post tonight, but it will have to wait until tomorrow, along with the rest of my writing. I was up in the middle of the night on Monday resolving an electrical issue in the whelping area, Tuesday night was the actual whelping, then last night I spent quite a bit of time trying to bottle feed and stimulate the weak puppy, so I am very run down. The 8 puppies are very fat, vigorous and doing extremely well, so I will have more time for sleep tonight and desk work tomorrow now that I am not attempting to hand raise a pup.
If you are searching for a puppy to purchase, please be aware that all of these are spoken for, but I will be more than happy to talk to you on the phone or e-mail about our 2014 plans.
Keep an eye on the blog tomorrow for a better write-up, more pictures and a video!
