March 2009 Kit had her first litter of pups. 12 puppies. That was a lot for her and for us. Although they are extremely adorable, they are work. We had to start feeding crushed dog food at 10 days as Kit could not keep up with their growth. Once more food was going in, more clean-up was required more often. It was amazing how fast the color change was, and once the eyes open the personalities start to show and the adventures begin. Though we thought we could never let those tiny cuties out of our site, we were glad to see the pups start going to good homes at 7 weeks. The lessons learned from this first litter will stay with us as well as the joy. It will be fun to see what these pups will accomplish in the future.
