Kadamo's Fire-litter is here!

Yesterday, on Saturday afternoon the 27th of July Enya started to show a change in her behaviour. At around 15.30 her "water broke" and I knew we were going into the next phase of the delivery. 
After a couple of hours she started to have a few contractions and in the evening they increased, and at 19.39 our first puppy was born!
A lovely male weighing 595 g, showquality and he got be Mr Gold! Not long after he arrived Enya's owner Camilla joined us to be a support for both Enya and me.
And not long after, at 20.13 the second puppy was born. A showquality male weighing 550 g  and he got to be Mr Green.
Enya were doing a wonderful job quickly getting the hang of what she was supposed to do an caring for her babies.
At 20.47 our third male arrived, also showquality and weighing 550 g. He got to be Mr Blue.
Less then 30 minutes later, at 21.15 our fourth showquality male was born, weighing 590 g and he got to be Mr Purple.
I was by now starting to wonder where my girls where! Even though very happy about the wonderful results so far, I wanted some girls too!
So at 21.32 I was very happy to have our first girl in my hands, weighing 495 g, showquality and of course, she got to be Ms Pink.
Enya kept up the good work and continued to pop out puppies like a pro, and at 22.00 our sixth puppy arrived, another male, weighing 590 g. (Pictures of his entry into this world can be seen below, if you are sensitive for close up photos you have now been warned...) This boy is now known as Mr Black.
Only 20 minutes later at 22.19 our second showquality girl arrived, weighing 600 g (biggest of all the puppies) and she got to be Ms Red.
We now had seven puppies and Enya decided to slow down the pace and rest for a while. She had a little bit to eat before she, after 1 hr 50 min gave birth to girl number three at 00.09. A lovely showquality girl weighing 510 g, getting to be Ms Orange.
After this another long wait, which was now starting to get a little bit tiring for me and Camilla, who both had been awake for a long time. At 02.28 our sixth boy and ninth puppy arrived, also him showquality and weighing 584 g, and he got to be Mr Yellow.
After this we knew we had one more puppy to come, but since she has rested so long inbetween the last two, we expected her to do the same. So when she was sleeping herself both me and Camilla decided to try to do the same. Enya has been very easy in her deliverys and we could easily hear on her breathing when it got closer to a puppy coming. So pretty relaxed we went to sleep for a couple of hours, just checking on Enya and the puppies now and then. 
At around 6 am I started to think, she has contractions now and then but in my eyes not often enough. So after a while I called to Bagarmossens Djursjukhus and talked with them. We were thinking just the same. There were no fear for Enya in this stage, but the last puppy could be dead or dying when it is taken so long. The nurse said we could wait for a few more hours, so we waited for a while. But then, after some running with Enya, some more food for her and still no puppy I decided to take her to the vet. 
I didn't want to risk loosing our final puppy, and I was hoping the stress of the carride would kickstart the delivery, and it sure did!
At 8.08 our last boy arrived in the back of the car on Essingeleden! Him also showquality, weighing 570 g, and he got to be Mr Lightblue.
Since we were not that far from the vet I decided to still go and just let them doublecheck that this was the last puppy. 
Since I had done the X-ray I was sure of 10, but I just didn't want to go back home and worry. So, a little bit poorer we are now at home!

Enya has been amazing the whole time. Not waisting any energy, having good contractions, been calm and relaxed and caring with love for her puppies.
The other dogs has gotten to look at the puppies from the doorway and Enya has been ok with that, she was even ok with joining them outside for a quick quick pee. 
I am used to the bitches guarding their puppies, so it is great to see Enya so relaxed, yet of course protective and caring.
Below are some mixed photos from the whole delivery and a couple of videos. Individual pictures coming later on! Enjoy!
