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.
