Lilly's First Litter...

Please welcome our newest litter born February 27 2016, 1 english cream boy and 1 shaded cream female (she will lighten up considerably). It definitely wasn't what we were anticipating in terms of litter size. Lilly is doing fantastic considering this has been a challenging delivery and litter. Unfortunately the male was just too big to pass and we headed to the vet for an emergency c-section. Like fish in a tank, when there are only a few puppies the risk they'll become too big increases. To boot, our little girl didn't choose a very good spot in mama's womb to set up shop and was born underdeveloped. She's needed a lot of TLC from us, it has been a difficult week where we have learned a lot, and everyone has become pro's at hand feeding. We've all been touched by her desire to be here, she's a fighter! The male has the entire milk bar to himself, needless to say his weight gain and round belly this first week have been a source of comedic relief.  Lilly is a wonderful new mom, she especially dotes over the little female. We'd like to acknowledge and sincerely thank the many vets we've worked with over the last week who helped us during this critical time. Enjoy the follow pictures.

Lilly is expecting!
We are absolutely thrilled to announce Lilly is expecting her first litter of puppies in 1 weeks time. Our last litter was fantastic so we're working with Classic Dachshunds again and Kona is the sire. 

Her pregnancy has been going perfectly smoothly, her quickly expanding tummy has her feeling a little uncomfortable now, but that just means exponentially more belly rubs. Her puppies are starting to do somersaults and we're anticipating a large litter with a variety of coat colours.

NEW and PAST Owners - Keep the pics/videos coming
Diesel and Tucker
These two boys are little smartie pies already, sweet, playful, and cuddly, Tucker is the outgoing one and Diesel is a little shyer. 

~Very out going and a sweetie with her large dachshund family. She has also been dubbed the toy monster as she hordes them in her dog bed~

~ Isabella's first litter~
She's a charmer, loves to play outside, and always ready for lap cuddling
Penny just being Pretty home from the groomers. It didn't last long as she has too much fun running through leaves, snow, sand, water. Just about anything in the pursuit of fun.
Just sitting on the patio resting. Big day of playing on the beach with her friends.
Fun in the kayak. Safety first, we always wear life jackets.

Such a sweetie!
 Looks like someone got into some trouble!

~Isabella's 1st Litter~
She is a lovable tyrant!
A cute quirk: she loves bags and purses if you leave a purse open on the floor she will go into it and take everything out of it. 

A spritely beautiful boy, his antics have been filling their home with fun and love.

A BIG thank you to everyone for the wonderful pictures and stories. 

Does your dachshund go crazy after they have a bath? If the answer is yes they might get it from grandma Jenna.
