Thanks @SmoknGranny !

6 puppies and yes, first time mother. She kept getting false pregnancies so we decided to let her get the real deal :slight_smile:

Gave 5 away and kept 1. His name is Caos


#224

Looks like she’s taking to motherhood well. I like a six pack. My first Brittany had 11 and she came from a litter of 13. When I was breeding English Setters I averaged 6-8 and was there for many litters. Fun times :heart:


#225

6 was certainly enough for me. She’s the perfect mother and the false pregnancies went away, everyone’s sain and happy again.

Me and Caos, first taste of seawater


#226

Beautiful pups! My Butters is having a false pregnancy now (again), so she keeps bringing me her stuffed animal toys - she thinks they’re dead puppies. It’s so pathetic.


#227

Just can’t bring myself to like that
Here’s an aww


#228

If you aren’t planning to breed her you may consider having her spayed. I sadly had to do that with a beautiful little setter but it was best for her. But I later got a pup from her sister and kept the Smith Setter bloodline in my kennel. Awesome bird dogs!


#229

Yeah, I know. We wanted to have her spayed when we got her, but one of my daughters, who was six at the time, had a fit because she thought we were killing unborn puppies. I think I’m going to have her spayed this year though cause I can’t stand hiding all her to toys twice a year to prevent this.


#230

I understand. But I think both you and she will be much happier. I usually had a waiting list for my puppies and I never bred a bitch before they were two and never bred them more than two times. The only time that rule was broken and I was overruled it almost broke up my marriage and a friendship. I’m still mad about that to this day :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: Long story and things didn’t end well. Needless to say, I never got overruled again.


#231

It’s true, it can break up families. Our pets are big part of the family, so we just try to keep everyone happy.


#232

Bitch had cancer. Hubby and our friend co-owned and wanted to save her bloodline. It didn’t end well and I had to take care of the situation as they were off at a field trial. The details are too awful to discuss and would break your heart. One of the worst days of my life and I still cry about it 15 years later.


#233

Oh, no, I’m so sorry. It’s so sad when they get sick and it’s up to you to decide what to do.


#234

Thanks. Luckily, we had a great vet/friend literally right down the road and he was very supportive with the decision.
I will say that later both hubby and our friend both admitted they should have listened to me and apologized for some things said that were uncalled for and hurtful.


#235

Hmm, I don’t know what happened. Tried to edit now
