The 4th of July Litter

9 pups, 5 males and 4 females, born July 4, 2009

Co-breeder: Rosie Higdon

Risk celebrated Independence Day by presenting us with nine beautiful pups, 5 boys and 4 girls. She did a wonderful job, whelping her first litter in four hours and slipping easily into motherhood.

These pups are named for their birthdate, the 4th of July, either with firecracker or patriotic names. Risk, Rosie, Andy and I would like to introduce:
