Before you long horn fans get excited..she annihilated that toy :D ..we're Aggies and Baylor Bears around here..

Counting down till the drop date..we are so excited about this litter.
We also bred Abby's parents again this week. Again we are keeping the entire litter.
I will however proudly show off pics and stories ;) about our hog dogs...maybe 2011 we'll have a litter we actually sell..to serious hog dog homes of course.

Aww, Abby is such a pretty girl, and she's looking fit as a fiddle. I can't wait to see both of these litters!

Chula had almost no hair left when she dropped pups. :))

Good luck with two litters at a time! I'm not much of a puppy person, so this litter is enough for me for a long time. I think Moonpie is having the most fun with Chula's pups now. She loves to play with them now that they are walking. I'll start to have fun when we bring in a little piggy for them to bark at. :) I'm seeing the white fade off of the two that I thought would be white-faced. Can't even see it on the cream ones anymore.

I'll be sitting at dad's house this weekend, so I'll probably come back with pictures. :)

If we don't catch some little piggies out here soon, I'll have to convince my dad to make another trip to the Brooks' house. :) It sure was fun and I'd love to do it again! We just set our good trap in McCoy, so I'm hoping we'll have a piggy to play with this weekend.

Abby's pups came 6 days early Sep30 between 10pm & 12am..so I have been reluctant to post (superstition lol)
Any way 3 BEAUTIFUL little girls 2 of which are brown dilutes..I am ECSTATIC beyond belief about that. The other little female is precious and blue as well. They are Gia, Crafford, and Brinkley..all after Super Models of course lol

The three boys are adorable BUT 2 may be culls..have to see how they fair. The first born is a strapping little boy with perfect marking and a gorgeous rich blue coat. His name is Sammy after my Uncle who's memorial was the same day the pups were born. This is also the Uncle who first introduced me to the breed up close and personal when I was a wee girl so it seemed fitting. The other two if they make it will be Gunner & FlyBoy
as my Uncle was a decorated Vet. and Served aboard the USS Observation Island at Pearl Harbor.

Abby is doing awesome!! She is a picture perfect Mama especially for her first litter. All the pups have 10 fingers & toes, one head and no dew claws..for those of you leery of line breeding.. :))

I`ll get pics when their eyes open ;)

One Very Tickled ~Mis

I took some "wiggle worm" pics anyway..you can't tell much from the pictures as they are only 2 days old in them.

OK so I made notes on nose color and so forth, as some of you recall we have been discussing the dilution allele and how black dilute differs from brown dilute and Lacys are capable of both. The less damning "blue" is the brown dilute as far as health influence(skin) . We had hoped that with Abby being a Tri and Trapper having thrown brown dilutes previously, for at least 1 in this litter. We got 3 for certain and one I was unsure of. The females all had pink/liver noses until yesterday when they began to gray. Sammy's (male) appeared pinkish-brown the night he was born but, it had deep blue lining..so I wasn't sure.
What didn't I do? Take pictures of their noses :- I had planned on it BUT I had not been home long from a long memorial service (and even longer day with grieving family) when they started popping out...so the camera slipped my mind until the next day...noses had already begun turning (as they are supposed to) Today when I tried capturing some of the livery coloring still lingering on the leather..the camera just couldn't pull it off..or more likely the idiot behind the camera couldn't.. :ymblushing:
Mama and babies
Image
That Big fellow is Sammy
Image
Little one on her back is Gia..took that a few minutes ago :D did I mention she is my pick? :))
Image
Mama Abby doing such an incredible job!
Image

The little red male is gorgeous BUT he has a couple of white hairs on his head :( not sure about this little guy..when he was born he was damn near white..then by morning had shaded more red and he is darker still today. With the creams and light reds I have learned that their coloring can be puzzling until 6-8 weeks old...so we will see what happens. His nose is bright pink..

Squirrel dogs is where I've heard about it. Some of the better line-bred treeing curs happen to have double dew claws. Of course it isn't that line breeding causes that, it is because you are enforcing genetics that happen to carry it. But people seem to use it as a badge of honor type of thing.

Generally, people who think line breeding (regardless of how loosely) produces retarded offspring. I mean physically retarded. And for some reason some of those folks think dew claws are a bad thing. :-? I for one don't care either way..we have had them with and with out and we only clip the ones that the new homes request it..my personal keepers get to keep their dew claws ...

Congrats on those beautiful pups, Mis! Abby looks like a great momma, too.

I was gonna say almost all of my pups have front and back dew claws and Levi and Chula don't have any common ancestors for a long ways. We were going to remove them, but I don't really see a reason to, so we just left them. I don't like removing dew claws, docking tails, or clipping ears unless it helps the dog in some way.
