My sister-in-law just had puppies!
I was sorry to have missed the event, as I was staying with my brother the very next evening, and was really looking forward to watching the puppies come out- I've never had that opportunity before. But my sister-in-law Trina stayed up all night with Daisy after the first yelps were heard. I'm told as the first one came out Daisy had a rather surprised look on her face, wondering what in the world was happening to her. (She's artificially inseminated, so didn't have the traditional biological cues for this to be happening. This may also help explain why she wants to wander off and have fun at times rather than taking care of her babies. That and she's a teenage mother.) My brother Kent got her the traditional birthing present that every mother needs.
There's six of them, and they're all golden doodles- half golden retriever, half miniature apricot poodle. They are planning on keeping one and selling two, so if you know anyone who wants to buy a dog for $1000-$1600...
Daisy is happily suckling a number of them, as they squirm and squeal their way through her paws. Kent suggested the one male be christened with the Hispanic name "Jesus", as Daisy was implanted, and therefore remains a virgin.
I think they should just name the boy Son of a Bitch.
