Re: Brittany Puppies Birth Weights?

Just another perspective: my small bitch 18"/27 lbs.(normal weight) just whelped a healthy litter of 7 on 3/25/10, the smallest was 10.8 and the largest was 12.5oz. I was expecting a little smaller as well, since she was the runt of her litter only weighing in at 7.2 oz. I fed my dam as much as she ...

Re: Brittany Question

I have a little Brittany bitch who loves to hunt bunnies almost as much as she loves to hunt birds. Last week in all her 7 weeks along pregnant glory she plucked a baby bunny out of the bush and retrieved it to hand, although it's not the best thing when she chases them at a field trial.... :?

I've got 14 people on my waiting list right now for pups and 12 of them want a female. Most say they want a female for the reasons stated above, the buyers think they're better house dogs, more loyal etc. The ones who want males want them because they already have an alpha female.
