CHANTEL WANTS TO BE MOMMA TOO!
Chantel, our two-year-old apricot, has been dying of curiosity about all the noisy little critters in the whelping box. Grace wouldn't let her in for the first couple weeks or so. On this particular day, she finally gave in and let Chantel try out her mothering skills.
It was really quite funny to watch. Chantel sniffed and nudge puppies. She tried the front ends and then the back ends. Finally she laid down with them. One touched her leg and she popped it up in the air as if the pup were carrying the plague! LOL

OK! Where do I start?
DID THAT THING JUST MAKE A NOISE!?
AND THERE'S ANOTHER ONE!
You all smell sooooo good! You're mom, Grace, is taking really good care of you.
I sure do need to get a handle on this by next year 'cause I heard that I am having little things like you too.
Chantel is just a sweetheart with the babies. She will be bred next year for our second litter. We have not decided on the male for her yet.
