Well, my loyal followers; June 11, 2014 was a big day at Birkenberners with 8 new puppies 6 Boys and 2 girls, being born to Birkenberners' Bacia's Bernice. Daddy Berner, Disco Cisco of the Barking Bunch is waiting patiently to meet his new sons and daughters. It was the easiest birth we have ever experienced. Labor began at about noon and by 6pm all were born and hungrily nursing. We have put in a small holding crate to keep all the pups to prevent Mom from accidently laying on any of them. We give her 4 or 5 at a time to clean and feed while the others sleep. We are one big happy family. I plan on keeping one of the boys and the rest will find new families to take care of. Those who have little children or babies would be wise to get a Berner while the children are young. The bonding process is so much easier for children and puppies. As of yet we have 3 or 4 spoken for. This breeding was a successful mixing of good Dutch championship bloodline with our Canadian female. We expect the pups to be very amiable and calm as their Dad and Mom are. We'll keep everybody posted with pictures during the next few weeks.
