Our Emma gave birth to eight puppies on Thursday evening. The birthing went really well and was quite relaxed for the young mother.
The five boys and three girls are very well, active and drinking perfectly. Emma is taking great care of them and is constantly making sure that the little ones are clean.
The pups father is our youngster Stranz, who has just finished his first working season. Apparently he was not that exhausted, if he had time to consummate during a short, unattended break. Luckily he chose the right girl for his free-time-fun and even if it wasn’t planned from us, we are more than happy to welcome the little ones to our team.
The pups are growing up
Our seven puppies, or better teenagers, are just about eight months old now and almost fully grown.
The three boys (Bams, Bims and Tørkel) still have their fluffy winter coat, so our term “Killersheep” still applies in this case.
The youngsters are already living, in the kennels, together with their future team mates. The sooner they get to know each other the easier they will have it later on.
Winter season over
With our 10-day tour to the “Dreiländereck” (photos), that was blesses with sensational weather, we ended our Winter season. We are still surrounded by lots of snow and the subzero temperatures at night are responsible for perfect sledding conditions. Of course we will use this for some more private mushing tours.
We are more than happy about this seasons outcome: good snow conditions, little snow storms, highly motivated dogs and great guests, what else could we want?
