Nine Pups

Just like yesterday, I would like to tell you about something that has happened in Norway. At the breeder where Dad comes from, Enerhaugen in the city of Bergen, a Shiba Inu litter of nine pups has been born. None of us at Aangenaam has ever heard of a bigger litter, when it comes to our breed. The Shiba Inu is a breed that is very close to the wild origin of the dog, thus, we normally get litters of about two to four pups. Noone have ever bred our breed to make us get bigger litters. The biggest litter ever in Sweden was eight, and even this was huge, as far as Shiba Inus go. It is not surprising, then, that the litter of nine pups is a matter that we have discussed at length today.

We hope that all pups are well, there is the risk that some pups in a huge litter are weaker and will not fare very well in life, if they survive at all. As far as we know, all pups in this litter are healthy, which make us happy. Dad say, of course, that they could not have had a better breeder to be born at (the rest of us say that other kennels must be just as good, such as Taichung, Aangenaam, and Honto No). We have no doubt the pups are taken very well care of. I will come back with more news when I get any.
