On June 22 Emma whelped 9 puppies. Unfortunately two did not make it because of their difficult whelping positions (whelps were upside down, feet first, and and they were blocked by afterbirths). So after 12 hour long whelping we have 7 healthy puppies - 5 females and 2 males. Puppies were identified by ribbons around their necks. Pups' weights at birth are given next to the color id:
N-puppies were just 5-6 months old during their first tracking season but in spite of their young age they have done very well.
