Litter 19 - Q x KeaWhelped 18 June 2013

Kea decided to throw me a total curveball by going into pre-labour what I thought was 6 days early. Rapid re-calculation back to ovulation rather than mating date set my mind somewhat at rest as that put the expected whelping date back to 19 June. Of course the final spanner in the works when we were comfortably back from the vet was the call advising that the results of the progesterone test we had taken earlier in the evening actually set the whelping date back to "in the next twelve hours". And Kea set the time as in the next 20 minutes :-) 

So commencing at 11.10pm on Monday and completing at 6am Tuesday morning 18 June
Q (Ch Starridge Point Taken AI) and Kea (Ch Pupukearidge Kealohi Imp USA)
became sire and dam of 6 girls and 3 boys.

All ridged, no excess white, no excess black, no dermoids detected at birth.

20 July - Girl 1 now confirmed with a dermoid sinus.
