Aphrael Lonesome for U

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.
