Little Bundles

So, if we take Yuri of Seppala for a little walk and to visit Queen of Seppala, nature dictates that 9 weeks later, give or take a day or two, we’re going to be blessed with the arrival of little bundles of joy.

And so, it turned out to be.

On 11 February 2016 we became the happy caretakers of another 2 Seppala Siberian Sleddogs, when Queen whelped 2 little girls. They are growing well and Queen is finding looking after 2 much easier than taking care of the 6 she had last time. Actually, we’re finding it a whole lot easier too.

Now, at 6 weeks old, they are developing nicely, growing well and are as pretty as all get out. We finally gave them names, Kenzi is pup #1, and Bella is pup #2.

The colouring of the girls is still developing and changing, as it always does. But it’s looking like we’re going to lumbered with another couple of whites………..  at least at first glance. Both of them do have some colour, in the shades of isabella white. Kenzi will, in all likelihood, like her half brother Eris, be a piebald, but with such light shading that it isn’t very noticeable. Bella has much more of the isabella colouring and it is fairly obvious in real life.

Welcome to Gealach Mor, girls.
