Announcing the Arrival of Nashua & Ranger Puppies

Nash whelped 7 lovely squirming Llewellin Setter puppies over night. The first big boy arrived at 3:35 AM, and the last pup, a girl, at around 10:20 AM.

We have 2 boys and 5 girls in all.

All are great and Nash is exhausted, but just fine. She refuses to go outside, but I am going to make her go out for a nice walk around the property as soon as we take a little siesta because  we were up all night, two nights in a row. đŸ™‚

Nashua is such a great momma. She is so careful and gentle while moving around the whelping box so as to not step or lay on the pups. She’s really something else.

I congratulated the sire, Ranger, while out for his run this afternoon. đŸ˜‰



This is puppy #1, about 10 minutes after birth.

A beautiful Belton male.


The same fellow.


And then there were 6….

The seven squirming newborn beauties.


I’ll go through the contest entries on the blog and on Facebook after work tonight to see if anyone guessed the correct answer as it turned out:

June 8th 5 girls, 2 boys

Congratulations everyone!
