I had other plans for Emily but Maks decided that we should have puppies so while I was occupied he opened both latches on her crate and…. well the rest is the subject of this blog. We have 8 puppies all of which are black spotted. there are 5 females and 3 males. One of the males has a small ear patch. Since they were born on Thanksgiving I have given them names that relate to Thanks giving. The girls are Pumpkin, Macy, Cranberry, Gobblegirl and Mayflower. The boys are Pilgrim, Indian and Kennedy. I know what does Kennedy have to do with Thanksgiving? Well nothing really but since they were born on November 22 which was the 49th anniversary of the day on of our great presidents was killed I named the last puppy in his honor. Here are a few pictures.

Maks is one of a small number of Dalmatians worldwide that carries two copies of the desirable SLC2A9 gene therefore every puppy he produces will have one copy of the gene and therefore Low Uric Acid (LUA)! Emily has one copy of the LUA gene so we expect some of these puppies two have two copies!
