To the left you can see 'U' as her pregnancy progressed.
The litter was due 30 November and by 2nd December, as she showed no signs of whelping, we paid a visit to the vets. At first sight the vet thought she was having a phantom but after examination found there to be one large puppy and advised a C-Section.
U had no milk to feed him and after much perseverance on our part she rejected him. Dawn became his surrogate mother, feeding every 2 hours day and night for the first few weeks of his life.
The Celtic "B" litter produced 1 Silver Brindle dog
was born by C-Section on 2nd December 2002.
6 weeks in whelp
8 weeks in whelp
Blue stayed here with us at Aphrael until he was 13 months old, when he discovered the opposite sex. He now lives with Dawn's mum and dad
