C-litter - CH Whashishi's Gideon x CH Astrellita Gold Dust (Sadie)

   The two puppies Kinky (left) and Blacky at 7 weeks

Sadie had to have an emergency cesarean delivery of her third litter on 25 June. Sadly only the two boys shown here survived, but they are both healthy and developing well. The photos above were taken on their 7th week birthday.
     The puppies have just had their first long trip in the car — to a specialist vet near Avignon for their eye examination (at 7 weeks) and microchipping. We are happy to report that they are all CEA, CRD and PRA clear. (Les chiots sont tous indemne de AOC, de dysplasie choriorétinienne, et de APR.)
     We wanted to keep the beautiful sable boy Kinky, but he was born with a broken tail and is going to live with a French family who fell in love with him. We asked them if they had any ideas for a kennel name beginning with C, and after researching the internet, they chose Champollion. So Kinky is now Champollion du Clos des Castagniers. Jean-François Champollion was, of course the famous Egyptologist who deciphered the hieroglyphs.
     Blacky is now Cierán du Clos des Castagniers after the Gaelic word meaning "the little black one" and will stay with us for the moment.
