The Southern Litter

10 pups, 7 females and 3 males, born October 31, 2009

Cobreeders: Charlie and Lauran Mancuso

Skye whelped her first litter, ten pups, on October 31, 2009. You can see photos and videos of these pups on our blog. The litter theme of this litter, Southern, honors Skye’s original owner and co-breeder, Dana Morris, who passed away from ovarian cancer nearly three years ago, and Skye’s present owner, Lauran Mancuso, who is from Louisiana. Their registered names will either include the words South or Southern or will have to do with the American South.

Brass and Skye, Charlie and Lauran, Andy and I would like to introduce:

Gaylan’s Southern Litter
