Welcome new babies

On January 3rd, Joli Blon, a  darkly shaded black pearl presented me with 4 new kits.  There is a chocolate tort(like the sire), a black tort, a REW and a pearl.   The sire of the litter is  7Pines Handsome.  Since the temperatures have been below freezing for a week, and mostly subzero at night, Joli got to come into the garage to kindle.  Even then the temps were below 40, but she is doing a great job with them, and they are warm, wellfed, and growing well.  

Here they are at 10 days of age.
