On the 18 th of July, my 3 pregnant Schnauzer girls (Amee, Katryn and Kristil) decided to give mommy a surprise. I suspected mischief when I took them a bowl of milk early morning, but all 3 lay on the cushions on the floor (because their tummies are too huge to jump on the sofa) looking at me with drooping eyes… not at all interested in milk, cookies or anything. I looked each one straight in the eye and whispered to them in my dog-language: “It will really not be funny if you 3 girls planned giving birth to your precious puppies all together on one day!” How am I going to manage? I looked at Amee… “You know you have to be c-sectioned… I have to drive you to Dr. Macky in Graaff-Reinet… I will be away for 3 hours! Who will be watching the other 2 at home giving birth?” All 3 just looked at each other… knowing that they are the quilty ones for mommie’s migraine-to-be.
Luckily dad Deon stepped in and offered to accomodate Amee to dr. Macky for the c-section. So I was alone at home with 2 very uncomfortable mommies-to-be… sitting on my back-side between them… the whelping gear and tools nicely organized around me… but nothing happened… Really? What are you girls up to? Kristil just sighed, nested a little bit in her bed and lay down to sleep. Katryn still sat up, looking me straight in the eye, and all I could hear was a knocking sound… I could do nothing more than smile and kiss Katryn on the tip of her nose… and this is who Katryn is… always happy, always smiling, always wagging her tail making a knocking sound. Even in the most uncomfortable times of her life, she will give a smile and wag her tail just to let you know she loves you. Katryn is not dominant at all, she has a heart of gold, just like her mom Klaradyn. That’s why her name is Katryn – it means pure. Pure of heart. That’s our Katryn.
Back to the chaos… Katryn started getting contractions, but nothing happened. I realised we had a problem, something is not right. Dad Deon was still waiting for Amee to be stitched up by dr. Macky… I didn’t have a choice… I had to take dad Deon’s BIG bakkie and drive Katryn to dr. Macky as well. And so it ended up that Katryn and Amee were c-sectioned by our wonderful vet. Amee had 6 puppies – 4 females and 2 males; Katryn had 7 puppies – all females and just as beautiful as their mom.
Back at home, Kristil decided to wait for mommy to be at her side while whelping. She was even so good-hearted to me that she gave me 2 hours of sleep last night, but then she couldn’t hold it any longer and waked me with a soft howl. And that is Kristil… a good-hearted, obedient girl. She is a little bit bigger than Katryn, but such a gentle soul! She delivered 7 beautiful, very strong puppies – 4 females and 3 males.
Amee, on the other hand, is the more dominant girl on the farm. She decides what mischief will be done and the rest will follow. She is VERY protective over her family which is also a good thing for the times we live in. Our workers are very afraid of Amee, knowing that those white, shiny teeth would love to sink into human flesh. She will never ever bite or be grumpy towards us, visitors or children, but she has an extra protective instinct. So if you would like a loving, obedient dog who will protect you or your children with his life, one of Amee’s puppies will fit in perfectly with you. She has the most beautiful amber-coloured eyes and she definately has the most beautiful full, white, bushy beard I have ever seen. But one thing is for sure…NOBODY messes with Amee or her family!
About the puppies
Katryn had 7 black and white-bearded girls, but they are all already booked. Katryn lightened with age, but she was born as a black and silver puppy. Today she has the most beautiful, soft, silver curly hair that shimmers in the sun. Basjan is dad of the litter. He is a very sweet, loving, friendly boy with tons of energy. If I have to predict Katryn’s puppies temperament, I am sure they will be loving, friendly, bubbling, happy, talkative and soft-hearted. Like Katryn, they will not like being alone, but to have a brother / sister Schnauzer, so please keep this in mind.
