First, congrats on a nice healthy litter of puppies keep us posted as they grow. I have a litter of 7 smooth fox terriers, all but one have a clown face (patch over one eye only) they are 2 wks tomorrow.

Second Thank you luckyrvt for mentioning a good raw diet!! We breed smooth fox terriers (used to bred Great Danes as well) and we have been raw feeding for 12yrs now, and would NEVER fed kibble (or crapple) again.

Puppies can be shipped anywhere I have sent puppies to europe and new zealand, as well as the usa (we are in Canada)

Thank you! Congrats on your babies! I didn't know that two black labs could produce yellows!

Yup! If the both carried it (and considering they are closely related the chances of them both carrying it are high) I would assume that they either had a yellow parent , or yellow grandparents. I don't know lab genetics all that well though lol if you have any questions feel free to ask!

OH I also wanted to mention to anyone thinking about the raw diet.... Its NOT expensive !!! It costs me less to feed a raw diet then kibble. Its really cheap now that we live on a farm, but I used to live in a very expensive city, and it was cheaper, its also not that time consuming, you just need to try and remember to defrost it . We have a kennel of 12 dogs (of our own) and then we board dogs, and I show dogs so we will have 1-10 client dogs at any given time.

Yup they had that done at day 2 as well as having their dewclaws removed. Theses little guys have big paws to fill :) their dad was a top winner ( and worlds greatest house dog, and worlds great ratter!) And their brother when he aged out from puppy competition (6months to 12months) he was the #5 puppy in all of Canada for All Breeds , and again sweet to live with, and hunts with the best of them, so pretty, brains, and the snuggle factor

Oh wow! I worry about the mom laying on one of them and killing it. She layed on one already and I had to pull him out from under her. What are the odds of this happening?

That really depends on the mom. A lot of breeders (especially of large breeds, but small ones too) get whelping boxes that have pig rails on them, to prevent mom from crushing them against the side of the box. If you google it you can find an example (basically bars so the pups can go under the rails and mom can't hurt them).

Some moms are really aware, others don't notice when they step on/lay on them. I know some large breed breeders will either A. Have someone/baby monitor with the mom and babies at all times B. If they aren't there they remove the mother.

I always spend the first few days around them til they are strong enough to wiggle out from under their momma. I don't recommend taking mom out, unless its the last option.
