Have you ever heard that a female dog can get bred more than once and have puppies from different daddies (in one litter)? Spence had told me it was possible, but I had never seen a clear-cut case of my own until now. Daisy had six puppies. Four of them came out looking just like Papa Jay's show collie and two were very distinctly Rottweiler. Spence and I are normally very conscientious pet owners and promptly spay or neuter our cats and dogs at the appropriate age. But I guess Spence was dreaming about one litter of heelers to carry on the legacy started by Lucy and Roscoe, and held off having Daisy spayed.
The stars must have aligned against us because Daisy should have been safe from getting pregnant way out here because other dogs never come to our house. But that special week, our well went out and we moved into town with Spence's parents. Daisy was out here unprotected from a roaming rottweiler and then took several trips into town to see Frecks (Papa Jay's collie). Hence our mix of puppies. But I have to admit...ALL of the puppies are so dang cute. There's going to be some crying when it's time for them to go!
First, some random puppy shots. (Can you tell how much we enjoy them?)
This is how Chase loves the puppies. Will they survive?
- Second, the Heeler/Border Collies (4)
1. BIG BOY (sweet and handsome)
2. BUDDY (playful, coordinated, & funny)
3. LITTLE GIRL (shy and gorgeous)
4. LITTLE BADGER (growler, sensitive)
- Now for the Heeler/Rottweilers
5. BROTHER (quiet and loveable)
6. SISTER (fat and friendly)
