In honor of their mother Peach, the girls are named: Apple (Black with white chest, paws and back of neck spot, multi color collar), Orange (Black with white chest, orange collar), Kiwi (almost completely black wearing pink collar), and Mango (Black with white chest, paws, and back of neck, not wearing a collar). All the girls appear to be Wavy.
In honor of their father Fenway the boys are named: Sox (Brown w/White Irish Markings), Bruin (Brown with White Chest), Patriot (Black puppy wearing red collar), Celtic (Black w/ White Chest and Tips of paws, wearing green Collar). They all appear to be Curlies......I would expect that they will have loose curls though as they grow I will know more.

Peach had her babies at co-breeder Chris Harris' (Reel Life) house on 10/6. Peach delivered the 8 pups uneventfully in 3 hours! She blessed us with 4 boys and 4 girls (weights from 7 to 11 ounces). We have 2 brown boys (one with irish markings) and the rest are black with from no white to chests and feet. It appears that we also have 4 curlies. Peach is a very textured wavy, and Fenway is wavy....but Peach's father Jack (BISS CH WaterMark Toby's BlackJack), though a wavy, has been known to produce curlies when bred to wavies. So I will assume that is where the curls are coming from. In honor of their father (Fenway, CH Querida's The Green Monster AWD) the boys are Bruin, Celtic, Sox, and Patriot. In honor of their mother (Peach, CH DeerChase Reel Life Georgia Peach) the girls are Orange, Apple, Kiwi, Mango. Individual pics in a few days.

I am co-breeding a litter with Reel Life PWDs (Chris Harris). Chris is the first person I met in PWDs some 20 plus years ago!!! She started it all by helping me obtain my first PWD, Rasta. This is the first time Chris and I have co-bred. The dam is Ch Reel Life Georgia Peach "Peach" and the sire is Ch. Querida's The Green Monster "Fenway". We expect wavies. Black, black and white.....and MAYBE brown!!! We know Fenway produces brown....and Peach MAY carry it!!!! Pups due in the beginning of October.
Introducing CnSand Windruff Frozen Chosen One. He was born August 3rd! Parents are BIS Ch Charlie De Alvalade and Windruff CnSand Last Piece O'Puzzle. Still deciding on a call name for him...but at 10 days old he already weighs in at 2 pounds! He is the product of Frozen Semen stored on Charlie Brown (D.O.B. 1978!). Gotta love science!

The pups arrived!!!! A few days early so I was in Dallas at a PWDCA in-person board meeting! YIKES! But Josh handled it well. He put in the call to Chris Harris who drove down to help whelp the litter. The excitement started at about 4:30 PM when her water broke. First puppy two hours later. and the last one at about 4 AM! So Corky (Cora) took her own sweet time! That is a LONG delivery for only 5 pups. But they are BIG ones!!!! First born were two Parti Color Boys who weighed in at 20 and 18 ounces! and the last three were girls with black with white markings. 18 ounces to almost 13 ounces. HUGE!!! names to come.

I spoke with Marika (Corky's co-owner) on Monday night.......she confirms that Corky is indeed "VERY PREGNANT". Traditionally, Corky would come to stay with me starting about a week from today...which would also be the time that I would be XRaying her to ascertain an approximate number of pups. Though due to a mandatory business meeting in Dallas March 11 through 13 I won't get Corky until the 13th. Her first due date is March 15th......though they are known to go early. Lets hope not in this case! Marika helped with the delivery of SASE's pups and feels good about handling this in the event she goes early. My friend Chris Harris is also "on call" to help if needed. If Corky makes it through the 13th I will have her Xrayed on Monday the 14th.

Foster (CnSand Australian for Beer (black with white chest/feet)) has been bred to Corky (aka Cora, CnSand Hook, Line, and Sinker (parti color)). I expect black, black and white, and parti color. They should be all wavy...but knowing Foster's pedigree a curly may sneak in there! Pups due in mid-March. To see more photos and info on the parents please visit my website at www.cnsandpwd.com
