Week 1:

Puppies were whelped on March 27, 2009. Ash had an easy time of it - her water broke at 11:45 AM, the first puppy came at 1:00 PM, and she was done with the six at 3:45 PM. There were 2 boys and 4 girls, all strong and healthy, weighing between 13 and 17 ounces at birth.

Here are Ash and most of the puppies just after whelping. Red and Blue are the boys; Pink, Purple, Green, and Yellow are the girls.
