Everyone is doing well

Mom and babes are doing well.  Eleven puppies was not unexpected, as Confetti was quite large, but that is simply alot of puppies!  By the end, Tom was calling out "stop already! It's a vagina, not a clown car!"  I am grateful for the couple of weeks when Confetti will do the clean up duty and handle all the feeding needs. 

I learned that this is nowhere near the record for Small Munsterlander litters.  It is actually quite a common number.  Donar has sired multiple litters of equal number.  In the United Kingdom, two litters were born to the same parents, producing 12 and 13 pups respectively.  The largest surviving litter of large munsterlanders  is apparently 19 puppies.
