Roxie is the mother’s name and her story is not unique. You can read Roxie's story at

Purchased from a back yard breeder and then bred by her owners, this litter makes #3 in her lifetime of 2 years when she is just a puppy herself!!!

Roxie was given up - in rescue we call this an OTI (Owner Turn In) to a wonderful ALL BREED rescue group in Modesto CA and our incredible volunteers the Alsups flew her into us in their private plane.

All day on Tuesday was nail biting time. Roxie’s temp dropped to 99.0 and rose to 99.5. Roxie and BaRNI are pleased to announce the successful whelping and birth announcement of 8 bouncing puppies. 4 females and 4 males. Whelping began at 2:55 a.m. and was completed at 4:20 a.m.


May I present the BaRNI at Daphneyland 8 PUPPY firecrackers - whom arrived as follows:
R & W female 2:55 a.m. (needed assistance)
Tri F 3:00 a.m. (needed assistance, white dot on head)
Tri M 3:18 a.m. (Has C on back)
R & W M 3:30 a.m.
Brown & White M 3:46 a.m. - needed resuscitation
Tri F 4:02 a.m. white dot on right hip
R & W F - stuck in birthing canal, is doing fine after manual delivery
R & W M - was the final puppy who surprised us all by just showing up an hour and a half later!

We have an online Puppy Shower being thrown by our wonderful volunteer team of Suzanne Fitch, Devon Smith, Marie Radebaugh, Annette Collins, Carol Ashley, Leslie Aimes (Montana Basset Rescue and proud mommy of a red and white female) and Dawn Smith. All items or donations are being requested by August 3, 2007.

Gift cards for the following stores would be helpful:
