Photo Flashbacks – Zen, A Lady in Waiting

On July 5, 2016,  Encore x Zen had a litter of  borzoi puppies here at Aria Borzoi, with Rita L.Rice. “Zen,”  the dam of the “Firesongs” litter is pictured below, heavily pregnant and just hours from delivery.  As part of our “Photo Flashback Fridays” we’ll be showing photos of the Firesongs litter at about the same age as the 2017 “Van Morrison” litter (Seamus x Melody) we’re featuring, just for fun and the sake of comparison.  Every litter is a little different and there can be a quite a range of “normal” for strong, healthy pups.  Over the next few weeks, we will  be doing a series of posts about early puppy development  here at Aria, using photos and examples from the current  2017 “Van Morrison” litter (Seamus x Melody), the 2016 “Fire Songs litter (Encore x Zen) and the 2015 “Irish Airs”  litter (Lancelot x Bridget).   

Poor Zen, full of puppies! Every so often she’d look at me like, “When will this be OVER?”

 

I kept thinking “Catch that nap while you can, Zen.  You’re on the hook for at least 8 more weeks….”

That’s one BIG belly for such a svelte little girl!
