They were actually born about 24 hours ago, but it's been a crazy 24 hours for us!! Mama and her SEVEN beautiful, black BOYS are doing great!!! She actually had us fooled and really showed no signs she was ready to whelp. Her temp didn't even drop below 99.7 or so. Between DH checking on her at 2am and me getting down to let her out at 6-6:30 am, she whelped them on her own! Well, the first six. She had #7 around 10am yesterday.

(Disclaimer: We did not breed these dogs. Mama showed up to the racing kennel from the training farm already preggers. We're just fostering her and the pups until they are ready to go to homes.)

First, to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOnGjsp8WF0

Now, to the pics...
Yesterday morning...


Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! So tiny and adorable!


Yesterday afternoon...mom still exhausted and the pups moving around a bit more.

Last night with everyone tucked in....


DH is calling the pup with the white strip on his face, Aang


Two cuties


This is another one from yesterday morning...She's so gentle with them and attentive. Even though it freaks me out when she picks on up!! I'm terrifed she's going to hurt one, but she does fine.

Congratulations to mama and you! 7 boys!
I'd LOVE one of those pups, but with the nickname of "land sharks", I think I'll stick to a retired racer :p

I'm so excited to see baby greyhounds! I don't think most people ever see them as babies...only as adults and usually retired at that. You are so wonderful to foster this mamma. It's amazing how gentle they are when picking up their babies...

Lots of love to the new mom and her babies from my crew and me! :D

Thanks for sharing the pics and video. Please keep us updated.
