This is Margareth`s third and last litter and what a finale she chose for us.
Wednesday 13th April Margareth had her puppies and our little Miss really surprised me in more than one way.
I understood early that it would be a big litter because Margareth got big very fast, and then bigger and finally I thought she was going to burst.
Day 55 after first mating her temperature started to jump and at day 57 they was born, the whole ordeal went good, the first puppy came at 13.05 and the last one at 18.02.
It was 9 puppies but 2 was stillborn and maybe not so strange when you consider the size on the litter for an affenpinscher. But 7 lives and they eat and grow so good now. And to my surprise and joy it is 5 girls and 2 boys.
Margareth is handling everything so good and I give her the best mark ever. I had to go in and help now in the beginning because some of them was quite tiny, the 2 smallest one was only 83 grams and went down to 78 grams the first day. I have not given any replacement this time but I have helped and hold them so they do not loose the tit and the other puppies don`t push them away. Today 6 days old the 2 small girls are up in 128 grams and 142 grams.
