Black Diamond Kits

Black Diamond Kits
Sage's Kits, Nine Weeks Old

Thursday, June 16, 2016


Phantom kindled three days early yesterday.  Of course, that's just a bit too early.  All nine kits were either stillborn or died shortly after birth.  Three or four looked like they were developing properly; the others clearly had ceased development at least a day or two earlier.  All but one of the kits were colored, so we learned that Phantom carries the gene for producing REWs.

What went wrong?  Our best guess--our only guess--is that Phantom is a bit overweight.  And excess weight can cause problems.  Guess she'll be going on a diet.
