During the wee early morning hours of August 16, 2013, Cocoa gave birth to five gorgeous puppies. Shortly after midnight, I suggested Bryan make like Linus from the Peanuts Gallery and take his blankie and pillow to the sofa cuz Cocoa was trying to nest in our bed.  Thankfully, Bryan didn’t have appointments until the afternoon of the 16th so we were optimistic he would be able to witness the birth of Cocoa’s final litter.

The first pup was born just before 3am and they were all safely nursing by 6am.  These pups were born during morning chore time which includes breakfast for the gang.  Between the two of us, we got everyone fed and settled and Bryan got the opportunity to assist Cocoa during Gabby’s birth!  This is the first time for Bryan so will be very sentimental that he was able to play a part in the birth of Cocoa’s very last pup.  Cocoa is as thoroughly devoted to this litter as those prior. She is enjoying her babies and we are excited to see them grow.

We noticed a very big coincidence with this litter and her previous litter ‘ Salute to the Duke’. Both litters were 5 pups consisting of 1 black, 1 cream and 3 chocolates!  The genders are not the same but, wow! If you are interested in adopting one of Cocoa’s puppies, please fill out our adoption application and email it to us.  We believe “Monchi” is a parchment and “Gabby” is probably going to be a black/silver phantom like her brother, Licorice (sweet litter): only time will tell.
