ok this is what she said today:

We named the first born "Free Willy". LOL The fourth born is ugly as sin. There is no, so ugly he's cute. Hims just ugly. So, we're calling him Big Ugly. The little girl hasn't got a name yet. I'll wait for her personality to show before giving her a name. Right now she's just "baby".

Shorty is still doing very well. I planned to call the vets to get her and them in for a check-up. Thanks for reminding me, Maxy. I'm not sure how well it's going to work as Shorty is highly posessive with the pups. She hardly leaves their side, she covers them with her body/head if you're with her for more then 5 minutes. She doesn't like you to touch them in any way. I'm going to talk all of it over with the vet, though. I just feel with her being a new mommy, she just doesn't know what to expect and is protective.

I had my Uncles girlfriend come out to look at the pups. She said all 3 look just like Husky puppies. The Angel that passed looked like a Cocker Spaniel. Found out she has a Cocker over there that could have mated with Shorty. But the puppies resemble Shortys Dad and her own sibilings when they were pups. So, it's possible that she got pregnant by her Dad. I hope that doesn't cause issues with the pups as they get older. Cathy (the girlfriend) said she could get the pups sold for me without registration papers. I insist on adoption papers, though.

and these are the pics:

The one with the "diamond" white spot is Big Ugly, the next one with the white stripes is the girl, and the all black one is Free Willy.

I agree. From what I understand, the mom should go too.

I'm glad the puppies were born healthy. I hope they don't have issues if it was an inbred litter. A little off topic, Shorty is cute, but she doesn't look like a Siberian Husky to me.

doesn't look pure to me. She looks like a shepard mix of some sort (shepard/husky maybe). We had a purebred Husky and Shorty doesn't look anything like ours did. Puppies are cute though, good luck with them.

yeah when I saw her I did not think she was pure either. She's probably not, that's what everyone on the other sight said too.

She doesn't look pure to me either, but she's a cutie and so are her pups. I'm glad everything hasn't been a complete horrible disaster as I was afraid would happen.
Sorry if this was brought up, but do you know what she's going to do with the pups? Put them on Petfinder?

she said she will screen the people who want to adopt them and if nobody wants them then she will keep them.

this is what she said today:

Just a quick update:
Shorty and the pups went in for a check-up. She did amazingly well for the ride in and home. We had to seperate them in order for the vet to look at the pups. "Mom" kept growling at him when he went near them. They are fine and have their "fingers and toes." Shorty got her shot to expel anything that might be left in her uterus. The vet said she looks good "but worn out." LOL And unless something comes up with Shorty, he doesn't need to see them until the pups wean so we can get Shorty spayed and the pups their first shots. I can try and start weaning them about 5 weeks of age. They have to be off Mom for 10 days for her milk to dry before her spay.

Hello everyone. I am Shortys human servent. I want to thank everyone for all the help you have given me through Maxy. I don't know what Shorty or I would have done without the support we have received. Just to clerify, she was already too far along for a spay/abort. That was my first thought when I found out about her pregnancy. I do plan to adopt the puppies out in the future. They'll be going with adoption papers. I'll probably be asking a ton of questions about that when the time comes. If they don't get adopted (I am picky!) I will be keeping them here. Shorty will be spayed in about 6 weeks if I can get the puppies to wean by then. Yea, I'll be asking about weaning when the time comes, too. I admit I am so far out of my element it's unreal. I want to do right by these pups and their mother. Any help, hints, tips and tricks anyone can give me will be appreciated.

Thank you!
