Mercy, Hope was a busy girl! No wonder she had to take a long break during delivery. That's a big litter. Love newborns. They just make you feel love.

Have a thought for you. Back in the day, as my kids say, I was on a forum when a discussion about pure white Chis came up. We had some members looking for pure white puppies and they'd get all excited when they saw "pure white" newborns. We all said you don't generally get pure white. Genetically, there's usually color that comes in somewhere, even if it's around the eyes or ears. Sooo, I did a photo diary of a new litter that I'd just had made up of 5 pure white pups (really some were already cream like yours but they looked white to the untrained eye) at birth. The group found it really neat to watch the pups grow and the colors emerge. We ened up with cream, cream spotted on white, cream with white markings, and fawn spotted on white. It's just fastinating the way Chis change colors as they mature, but especially the white ones.

Do you think you might be interested in doing something like that for CP? Do you have time to share weekly pictures, with a showcase on the white ones? I know I'd enjoy watching your babies grow. I don't have any pups right now so I'm having puppy withdrawals. :-(

Thanks Lisa! Yes we was very busy!!

Yes i agree its rare for pure whites! Ive never bred a parti-colour before i personally prefer all coloured. Tulula is now cream and
white colour at birth! Im expecting them to possibly turn a very light cream color, possibly black nosed and cream ears? I dont know if any will turn out pink/red nosed yet! Its hard to tell but the first white girl already hasblack lips inside so im guessing cream with her!

If i do have time ill definately post weekly photos if anyone wants to monitor colour progresses?
It'd be nice to watch i agree! And i dont mind sharing Lisa! I will say thoiugh you can tell with the slightly immature babies that they have a very domed head but a longer muzzle? Im guessing they may grow into them if not they'll be pets only

Oh my goodness! They are incredibly sweet. How exciting to have so many babies! I've got to say how neat it is that Hope & Tiny had so many light colored pups! Just goes to show how well some genes are hidden in there. :) Are Hope & Tiny's parents light colored??

Thanks for the update...I've been so excited to hear about & see these little guys!! Good luck & try to get some rest! Though I know for at least a couple weeks that will be pretty difficult. LOL
