We should be proud of that litter as all 9 have made it to the second phase of training to be assistance dogs."
Pictures of Tess's puppies at 6 weeks of age (see link below)   Everyone is doing well.
The puppies are off to PAWS Headquarters to begin training with their puppy raiser next week:

Thank you for remembering Tess on her birthday. She has been a busy girl for PAWS this last year with 21 puppies born - 10 from a litter back in December and 11 from a litter this July. We still have the 11 puppies (4 M, 7 F) and will deliver them to PAWS this Friday.
They have all been assigned to raiser families-several of whom have visited the puppies.
Tess will not be bred on her next heat - it is time she takes a breather even though she has done very well with all 5 litters. Both recent litters were Lab/Golden crosses which is PAWS preferred breeding these days. Four of 8 puppies from the R litter ( her second) were placed with clients either as service dogs or service dogs for autism. We have taken many photos of the current litter of 11 and will send a few to you separately.
It was a fun litter and from the updates I am receiving from the puppy raisers, all are doing great.
The first photo was entered and one of the finalists in an employee photo contest where I work.

Dear Laura,  Tess thanks you for her birthday card.  It will give me an opportunity to update you on how she is doing as a breeding dog for Paws With a Cause.
Today at eight weeks of age, Tess’s sixth litter of puppies went on to their puppy raiser and their next phase of training to be assistance dogs.  There were eight in this litter (photos attached).  This was a Lab x Lab breeding – 5 females, three males, six black and two yellow.  Tess has now had 53 puppies for PAWS and has been amazing- no puppy deaths or dystocia; I have never had to bottle feed a single puppy even with her litter of 11 (last year)...
...We are proud of her!  I am unsure when she will be retired from the breeding program.  At 5, she is healthy and probably still has a few more puppies to raise.
Hope you are well and continuing to breed beautiful Labs.  Kind regards,  Deb Ramsey
