Sharing secrets

Molly and I have a secret to share...

Molly gave birth yesterday to 4 black and tan boys, and 1 black and tan girl.  She is being a wonderful Mommy, and so far the babies are doing well. My Mom and Sister were here as extra sets of hands and I definitely appreciated all of their help. 

There will be LOTS of puppy pictures to share in the next few weeks.

  5. Beautiful babies and Mom. I'm curious, was the Dad a black & tan too? I'm uneducated as to how you get the different coat colors. I love all the colors, but I have to say...black & tan is one of my favorite.

  6. Congratulations! It seems that she should be just a puppy herself still - mostly I conveniently forget that Rylie is three now lol!

    Can't wait for more puppy pictures.

  7. The sire is a beautiful blenheim. In cavaliers black (tri and bt) are dominant over red (ruby and blenheim). Whole colour is dominant and parti is recessive. Unless we had a bit of a fluke this litter shows that Molly is dominant whole colour and double dominant black, making black and tans the only colour our Princess will produce.

    Here is a link showing the basics if anyone wants more information on coat colour genetics. http://cavalierkingcharles.org.uk/colour_inheritance.html

  8. Thanks for info on coat color. Now for another question on this topic. I have heard some people claim that coat color can have a bearing on temperment/personality type. What is your take on this?
