Our little Dassie just gave birth to her first litter. She had four boys!
She has such a strong personality and literally growled at the contractions. Everything went so smoothly and she is an excellent mom. The explorer in her finds this new job a little boring, but instinct seems to be keeping her in the nest. One of the pups was born prematurely (which seems funny since they are all born at the same time, but the conception days can vary). He is such a fighter and made it! I might die a year sooner, but he made it!
