On 9/4, Shelby delivered her puppies on Day 59 of her pregnancy. Dr. Sharon Vanderlip, of ICSB of San Diego, did progesterone tests and AI'd her on the date she was ovulating, with semen she collected and froze before Joey went to Japan. She inseminated Shelby intravaginally, which is a non-surgical procedure -- much safer than surgical implanting.
These puppies have natural tails.
