This was the largest Silken litter ever recorded by anyone by about 4 pups. We were slightly dismayed as the pups kept coming and coming. Since they were about 4 to 5 days early we figure her tummy no longer hold that many pups. Some were extremely small in size. Normally our pups run in the 300 to 400 gram range at birth. These pups ranged between 141 grams to 253 grams. We helped make sure all made it into this world and we hope we help make sure they are will survive. Right now although only 2 days old they are doing very well and have gained a few grams.  

Since we learned a lot of techniques on whelping/saving puppies during our seminars aboard our Canine cruises ( no we do not take our dogs but the cruise is devoted every day on ship on learning more about dog related topics) we felt it would be felt our theme could only be about one thing so......

We welcome the Caribbean Litter 



The "pile o pups" as you see below shows the huge size difference between the pups. Remember even the largest pup show is smaller then most pups in litters.  Pups although may start small in life as these are will eventually catch up to normal sizes in matters of weeks.

Here is a wonderful Lymerick written for us by a Silken family friend.

Even surrounded all over by the pups our Sabrina is a happy mom. Can you see the spots between her back legs? Yes that is another pup or two hiding out there. Mom only has 8 teats and since she has 14 pups we have to make sure all pups are getting milk.


Well it is day 10 now. It has been a tough ten days. At least twice a day and in the beginnning 3 to 4 times a day we recorded their weights. We are now happy to say the smallest one weighs in at 280 grams ( 10 oz) and the largest is almost 700 grams which is about 1+1/2 lbs. All of them are greedy for the food and we are still nursing them from the bottles. Mom is doing well with nursing them but is running out of steam from taking care of them all. We help where we can, wiping them to help them pee and poop. With Paul and I working full time jobs we have little time for anything else these days. But it is rewarding seeing these little guys get bigger and bigger.

The one thing I regret is that my camera did not pick up the rich colors in the litter. Many look just black but only two seem to be a black brindle right now and others are showing a rich color of red brindle. We have several silver colors and some fawn silver brindles and some rich browns. We had only Irish Marked and white pups. Some have lots of white some less so. It is an interesting mix......
