Von Tasz Shepherds
"Our dogs do stuff!"
Thursday night (11/15/07), Kyla's temperature dropped to 98.7 so I spent
the night resting next to her whelp box. Friday morning, she refused food
and her nesting instincts kicked in big time. In these photos, she took
the 4 layers of blankets that were neatly layed out and bunched them all
up into a wad. I sat quietly off to the side and just watched, she then
looked up with a guilty look like "am I going to get into trouble
for making this mess", I just smiled and then she started her heavy
pre-whelp panting (even though it looks like she's smiling)! Puppies should
start arriving any time now!
Here is a rightfully ever so proud new Mommy and two beautiful daughters!
First Born Daughter is 15 ounces
Second Born Daughter is 16 ounces
Both have been actively nursing and appear very content.
Notably, Kyla has the BEST mothering skills that I have ever had the honor
of observing - I'm truly amazed at her tender and loving natural instincts.

Kyla got a quick bath today and I could immediately tell that she felt
so-o-o-o much better.
Individual photos of each of the girls to follow shortly.
