FINALLY! The Zip x Jake Puppies are HERE!

I would like to introduce the new puppies!!! Zip was in labor for a LONG time, and it was determined that there was a puppy blocking things up, plus they were HUGE puppies....so a c-section was performed and all are doing well....fat little puppies...

7 puppies total, 4 females and 3 males....fat as can be :)

Even though this is her first litter, Zip was totally fine with feeding them..no issues :) We decided on traditional border collie names :) All puppies are black and white..coat type (smooth or rough) will show up later.







Puppy Pile!!
What a great mom Zip is!

I am planning on taking better and more pics....but with it being my first litter...an emergency c-section, 7 new puppies--momma hurt and sore...and me going on many days with NO sleep...you guys are going to have to take what you can get! :)

Um, I'll say it again...What HUGE puppies!! They are adorable, I can't wait to see them in person!

I came across your blog the other day and recognized Zip from years ago on a list that I followed. Always thought Zip had quite the personality!

Anyway, glad to hear the puppies arrived safely and good luck with them - they definitely appear QUITE robust. ;-)

Yes I know everyone...my puppies are fatties...and here I worked and made sure she was all fit, and look! She made fatty babies!

If it wasn't for Robin's puppy Spot...the traffic jam wouldn't have occured! He was trying to beat Gin up for the first born and got his HUGE head stuck!

He is the BIGGEST pupper by far...I have no idea how they all fit in her. But BOY is she happy to have them out!!

I am so happy it is all over!!!! Thanks everyone!

Thanks Heather-I hope she passes that down to her babies.

So far they are very loud and lots of opinions :) So that is promising!

Owww poor Zip! I feel for her and the emergency c section. Ouch! Then to have to nurse babies with teeth and claws over the incision. Ohhh if that were humans we would be bottle feeding for sure! Dogs are so amazing!

Those puppies are fat little toddler babies. Poor girl..

Forgot to add....they may be huge but they are absolutely ADORABLE!
