The Elven litter was whelped at 9.30am, June 16th 2015 via c-section. 4 boys and 1 girl arrived, weighing between 220 and 256g, big chunky puppies! All the boys were named after the four hobbits who journeyed to Mordor with the fellowship of the ring. Isla, on the other hand, was named after actress Isla Fischer. At 2 weeks of age, the puppies became sick from a virus, and Sam and Frodo almost did not make it - we like to say that it's just like in LOTR, where Sam and Frodo went to destroy the One Ring. Thanks to the help of some amazing friends and vets, we managed to get them to pull through, and they are now happy and thriving. The puppies' registered names are of Elves from JRR Tolkien's legendarium.
Isla - Lucidity's Tinuviel (Lúthien Tinúviel was an elf, the ancestor of Arwen, and was famed for her great beauty) Frodo - Lucidity's Elessar (Elessar is the Elvish name of Aragorn, who is part-elf), now called "Ender", after the main character in the novel Ender's Game Pippin - Lucidity's Earendil (Eärendil the Mariner was the child of men and elves who carried the Morning Star across the sky) Sam - Lucidity's Thranduil (Thranduil is the Elvenking father of Legolas), now called "Alfie". Merry - Lucidity's Elrohir (Elrohir is the brother of Arwen Undomiel), now called "Monty".
The parents of this litter are Lyra (Int. Ch., FCI-APAC Ch, & Mys. Gr. Ch. Riccaval Zeal Me A Kiss) and Monroe (Mys. Ch. Thai Ch. Bonitos Companeros Rednex of Lucidity's). Pictures of them are below:
