Yesterday, Zelda and her litter mates turned 4 years old!! She got to celebrate with a few extra cookies, some raw eggs and yogurt! YUM!
Today was Zelda’s “Spa Day” and pre-birth photo shoot. She was a real breeze to groom, though she was getting tired of all the standing for the leg scissoring. You can see the best photos at the end of this post.
We have just returned from the vet. The ultrasound showed us 5 babies for sure, with one or more ‘maybe’ hiding up under the ribs. It was just to hard to see clearly and she was really getting tired of the procedure. The puppies looked healthy, happy, and not to large or small. We have the emergency number for the vet and they assured us they could handle any issue that might arise.
Her milk has not come in yet, so we are at least 7 days out. I will keep you all updated as things progress. If you are interested in filling out an application and would like to submit a prebirth deposit of $100.00, now is the time to do it. Email me for an application.

The Average Standard Poodle coefficient of inbreeding is around 15%. This litter is 2.66% Lower % means lower inbreeding.
Inbreeding information on this litter from Poodle Pedigree:
Genetic information for Test Breeding Zeldav x River
The COI (Coefficient of Inbreeding) is calculated up to a maximum of 12 generations. However, if a generation is found where fewer than 75% of the dogs in that generation are known, the calculation stops just short of that generation. So if all dogs are known in the 5th generation but only half of them are known in the 6th generation, a 5-generation COI will be calculated. For dogs with more than 10 generations of pedigree information available, a 10-generation COI is also calculated for comparison and statistical purposes.
10-generation COI 2.66%
12-generation COI 4.44%
