My (few) litters were always about 1 every 45min to an hour. Wow that is fast!

Although I didn't get to see the whelping, I did get to help with one thing. Shortly after I arrived, the breeder and the vet took the dam outside for a potty break, and another experienced borzoi breeder stayed behind with me to watch over the puppies. One of the girls was not happy that her mother had gone and decided to go on a walkabout in the whelping box to find her. This little girl was so determined and so loud, and she quickly pulled herself quite a distance from the group.

I got to be the person to reach in and put her back with the herd so that she wouldn't get chilled. She gave me a talking-to as a I picked her up and put her back. At only two hours old, she was already declaring, "You are not the boss of me!" That one's gonna be a handful and will probably be my favorite in the litter.

Does this mean we'll get to have another chaz borzoi?

No. I would love to have another (and will someday), but at the moment, the ark is full. Besides, I have a feeling the breeder will end up holding onto Little Miss Bossy Gerbil--at least for awhile anyway.

Little Miss Bossy Gerbil. Now that would be an awesome registered name.

Ah, well . . . it's those long, slender, needle-nosed noggins
