Default Operation Get Who Knocked Up: Part 3

It has been 38 days since our trip to the U.S to breed Who to an amazing stud dog.

Ultrasound at 38 days, vet says 5 for sure but thinks there are 6 with a possiblity of 7. I saw their little heart beats, they are very active and according the to vet very healthly as well. It was cool to see them moving, but one was just a bebopping in there

Yay Who! Gosh that sounds like a big litter for a little JRT -- what's the normal litter size?

Continuing to send smooth-whelping vibes.

Normal litter is 4-5, but certainly not uncommon for 6-8. The most I have heard of for a jrt is 12. Normal average birth weight is 6-8 oz. small would be under 5 ozs and large would be 8+ oz. One of my girls had 3 pups once, all three were 10.8 oz (by the vet's scales), she had to have a c-section because we ended up with 2 pups stuck in the birth canal. Another vet walked by saw how big the pups were and said, 'wow!! she had 3 day olds!' lmao.
So more puppies means smaller pups for easier whelping esp for a maiden.

Yeah Mira's mum's last litter was 5...smallish for a FCR. They were porkers. IIRC they were 22oz, 2x 20oz, one 18oz, and one 16oz. The 22oz was first and had a snug fit getting through the birth canal, but was birthed naturally.

Gargantuan puppy.

Biggest naturally born puppy that I know of was Laura-Leigh's, Ember whelped out a pup (stillborn) at 15.15 oz. THAT is a huge jrt puppy, especially since Ember was only 12 inches tall.

Wow...here's hoping for 5-7 healthy average sized puppies!

Yeah poor Burr Burr!!!! That was the most horrific whelping I've ever been through....

Most of mine were born in the 6-8 range as well, with the odd bigger or smaller
