Abbie's pups are 10 days old today and really putting on the ounces. They seem healthy and content which is really good. The boys weigh 9.5oz, 9oz, 8 3/8oz and 6 oz now. The little girl now weighs 8 3/4oz. Abbie is being a wonderful mom. We are looking forward to open eyes soon! Holly

The event drew a good crowd of people and it was lots of fun. I was slightly surprized about the misbehaving dogs that were there though. There was a group of 3 dashhounds that never stopped barking at people all day, 2 huge black sheppards that tried to attack every dog within site and a few others that scrapped and barked on the attack at different times. I have to say that the girls were perfect angels and did nothing wrong all day. Ali and Anya, the two pups I brought were a HUGE hit with everyone there. Of course they looked like little dolls and basically slept most of the afternoon. Ruby with just 3 weeks to go in her pregnancy just soaked up the attention and she looked absolutely beautiful with her red and rhinestone show bow in her hair. She sat/layed atop the grooming table, slept for awhile but never swayed from allowing visitors to pet her and make of her all day.
Demonstrations were given on obedience and agility. Then they had the exhibition of breeds and guess what...........I had to go in the show ring with Ruby. I was soooooooo nervous but she was perfect, prancing along on the lead and stood beautifully as asked. I was so pleased when people cheering and clapped their hands for her, I almost cried. It was a great day and a great experience for all of us. We were able to educate lots of people regarding yorkie care, temperment and on confirmation. All the way around, Scott and I were extremely pleased with the day. Holly

Well I have to say that Ruby was the BEST girl today. She had to lay belly side up in a padded tray and she never moved a muscle the whole time. Unfortunately with this ultrasound, we could not confirm the number of pups. Dr Hutchins believes that there may be 3, but maybe more.....
In the picture on the right you can see 2 roundish areas, one on each side at the top. This is a picture of 2 pups. On the left you can clearly see the head on this pup and you can even make out the eye, ears and nose!!! We also could see the little hearts beating.........How cool is that??This was truly an exciting morning for us and Ruby took it all in stride. We will still have an x-ray on April 6th to be sure!!

You see, I had purchased a new puppy, a show quality male from a woman that I met last year, however, due to contractual problems, the sale fell through. Many show breeders sign strict contracts even on outside breedings and if not careful, it limits what they can do. Although she was going to co-own him with me and help me show him, the Sire's owner refused to sign off on the papers and wants to buy the pup back.
Of course I am truly disappointed but a great lesson learned. I am confident it is just a matter of time before I DO find a new addition to our family, as the future will come soon and TMY will need a new male to breed with our up and coming young moms...........thanks for all your excitement and support. I appreciate it. Holly

She just delivered her beautiful litter. She started pushing around 8 pm and by 9:30 mom and babies were all resting. She did wonderful and this was the fastest delivery we have had so far..........
Abbie broke the trend with this delivery!!! We are very excited and the pups are just adorable!
She had 4 BOYS and one little girl.
The girl was born first and weighed in at 3 7/8 oz, then the boys followed weighing 3 7/8, 2 1/2, 4 1/4, and 4 oz in that order. I will have some pictures soon. I apologize to all the folks out there that we have contracts for on girls.......for this is a first for us with the BOYS....something we cannot predict........Holly

x-rayed to determine how many pups to expect next week and here you have it.............5 babies!!!!!!!!! We can't believe it!!! She is going to have her little paws full but we will do everything we can to make sure her delivery is seamless and that she is able to care for them appropriately. Keep her in your prayers and we will let all of you know how everything went as soon as they arrive. Just in case you forgot, she is due anytime after March 21st. Thanks so much. Holly

I got up this morning only to find these little monsters outside their pen. I let them play for quite awhile with the big dogs. So far they are all getting along fine and Delia just loves the babies. I snapped these photos right after I put them back in. Every day they look different, act different and get more and more adorable. Enjoy,.... HOlly

Girl 1 is the talkative one........every day when I talk to them she is the one who yipps and barks at me ...jumping with her little front feet. Girl 2 & 3 have similar personalities........both of them take a minute to warm up and then they are the fiesty two...grabbing toys and trying to attack mom, my feet and anything else they can get their little mouths on.........and girl 4 is monkey-see-monkey-do....mocking all the others and letting out the cutest growl to let everyone know she is there too. They are just so darn adorable!!! For the two families that will be new moms/dads......you are very lucky as I have literally recieved a hundred calls on these pups. Have a great day!! Holly
