Ceekin Silken Windhounds are very proud to annouce the arrival of their "Born To Run" Litter! Full details below with more photo's on the current litters page.
After a long and somewhat traumatic night Kalli has provided just two stunning puppies, a boy and a girl.
Kalli went into labour at 12:30 am last night, and produced her first puppy, a heavty boy (432grm) at 3:20am. He is a light red, and as far as we can see at this stage solid colourShe continued to have contractions, but there was no sign of the next arrival. After some sleep (by her, not us!), she resumed her efforts, but they were clearly not strong enough to deliver, so at 8:30 am we were off at top speed to the vets. Acting on his advice she was given an injection to dialate the cervix to aid birth, but after the recommended 2 hour limit, still there was no puppy.
Back to the vets for the only option now..... A c-section. This was carried out in the most efficient way possible, indeed thanks to Michelle Marchant's assistance, on a while you wait basis
The good news is a very healthy, and active, and vociferous girl was born (385grm). Another red. but much darker and with some black, hard to determine at this stage her final colour. Mother and babies are now doing very well indeed, and mostly enjoying a very well deserved rest...... just as we (in relays) are about to do!
