Welcome to our new page introducing Sapphire and Diamond Eyes
Newborn Babies. This Page Has Quite a few Images. Please allow
for download time. Note:
As the photographs were being added to the site, to shorten download
time, I decided to do additional pages for viewing of Diamond Eye and
Sapphire Ladys Babies. To view just click the links above, or at the
end of the photographs.
The babies were born August 16, 2004 starting at about 6:00 pm and
finishing at around 8:00 pm. Saffy is a fine little mother, and doing well.
The babies are adorable and growing each day. I am including a few
photos and will add more as they continue to grow and develope into
young little puppies. Diamond Eye is a proud father, and trying to
accept all the attention that Saffy is now getting and of course needing
at present. Saffy being a little mother now is doing what she is
suppose to do, and not to very interested in Diamond at this time.!
No more playing around with Diamond, she is too busy tending to
his two little boys and one little girl. We are proud of Saffy, to be as pampered and babied as she has been since bringing her into our
home, she has adapted to motherhood quite well, even though at
times she still needs that cuddling time with us, she immediately
goes to her babies when they whimper or cry out.
It was a beautiful experience to watch her give birth, and we even had
to cut two of the babies cords. Saffy had her hands full, and the
afterbirth came before her fourth baby. We mention the fourth little
darling because it was a part of Saffy and Diamonds family, which
did not survive but a few minutes after birth. It was a little girl,
beautiful indeed, and we buried it in a safe spot on our property.
We are sad that this little one did not make it, and are glad that the
other three are doing well, as is our little Saffy. The vet told us that
due to the fourth one arriving after the afterbirth, that there was not
much we could do for it, as it most likely was not within a sac. We
will remember the little girl Saffy gave birth to and mention her here
in honour of her memory. This is a photograph of the beautiful baby
girl that died only a few minutes after Saffy gave birth to her. We
would have most likely called her Precious Safira. Saffys fourth
baby in the below photograph died shortly after birth on
Aug. 16, 2004.
The photograph here is of Saffy's very first baby, a little girl, my husband wanted to name: Shortcake.. She weighed at 8 oz. at birth, has lovely black markings on her face, and her body is all white. Sapphire Lady
with Shortcake. Shortcake is doing fine.
The photograph here is of Saffy's second baby, we had thought a girl,
but its a boy! We have decided to name him after Diamond Eye.
Diamond Duke is doing fine and has lovely black markings on one side, little black circles, and has one eye completely in a black circle, and the other eye is mostly white with some black showing. Diamond Duke weighted in at little over 7 oz.
This photograph is of Saffy's third baby, a boy also, and has markings
very closely like Diamond Eyes. We have decided to name him after
his daddy too, and he is the littlest of the three weighing in at little over
7 oz. Little Diamond is lovely with all white body, and black markings
on his face and the little black diamond shape on the top of his head.
Little Diamond is doing fine, he may be the third and smallest of the
three, but he is strong and keeps up with his brother and sister.
This photograph is of all three of Saffys babies, doing what babies do
All three babies sleeping, Little Diamond in the same position with his sister Shortcake and brother Diamond Duke.

The babies at four days old. Sweet and adorable.
Saffy discussing some important issues with Diamond. "Diamond I
cannot play with you, I have babies to tend to now!", seems she is
saying to him. Diamond loves to play, but now that Saffy is a mother playing with her is but for a fleeting few moments each day.
Ok, so Saffy won't play, Diamond decides to get one of his favorite
stuffed toys and cuddly with it.
Saffy and babies relaxing. Babies are five days old.
The babies at nine days old. They should be opening their eyes in the
next couple of days. They are moving quite a bit in the box, and are wonderful babies. They are content, never cry, and Saffy is a wonderful mother. Feeds the babies, cleans them, cuddles with them and when
she is out of the box from them, she constantly goes to check on them. Saffy sleeps most of the night with me, but is up and down staying with
the babies and feeding them as needed. She may have her own babies now, and does a wonderful job at being a mother to them, but Saffy is
still my baby..!
As the photographs were being added to the site, to shorten download
time, I decided to do additional pages for viewing of Diamond Eye and
Sapphire Ladys Babies. To view just click the links above.
A very tough decision was made by my husband and me. It was so
hard to do, as we feel this is a cruel thing to do to a animal, especially ours!, and we didn't actually want to do it, but since we also didn't
want to chance our little Saffy mating again within the next 4 weeks,
we decided to go ahead and have our Beautiful precious Diamond Eye
nutured. We are watching him closely as this is the second day of his
operation, and must be kept from jumping and running for the next few days. He seems to be doing fine, and we want that to continue for him. Diamond just had his 3rd birthday this month.
We will be getting Saffy spayed in the next few months, hoping to give
her some time to recoupe from having the babies, and she has at least
three weeks to go before they are weaned. We are not breeders, and
have accomplished our desire to obtain a mate for our Diamond, and
get a boy from him and Saffy. Our Diamond Eye and Sapphire Lady
will not be having more babies, and the three babies that we have of
their mating will be Diamond and Saffy's only children. We do not
know as yet if we will be keeping all three of these lovely babies, or
just one of the boys. That is another very hard decision we will be
making in the next few weeks.
These babies that have been born by Diamond and Saffy's mating are
precious to us, as is Diamond and Saffy. The babies are growing, and
will be soon opening their eyes. Diamond Duke is almost standing and
walking when he moves, the others are still at a crawl, but I look for
them to follow after their brother shortly. Saffy tolerates Diamond Eye
around her babies as long as he doesn't get too close to the box they
I love to love on the babies, and watch them as they cuddle, and it is
so very sweet to watch as Saffy feeds them. They remind me of little
panda's in their faces. They are adorable. I love them each already, to
choose will be most difficult, and maybe even impossible by the time
they are weaned!
I will post more pictures in the next few weeks.
UPDATE: May 2005
The babies are now almost 8 months old. The boys have grown
already as big as their daddy, Diamond Eye. Shortcake is still a tiny
little thing and will most likely be as small as Sapphire Lady, maybe
a little smaller. We have had Shortcake spayed, just 3 weeks ago,
and although we dearly did not want her to have to go thru that as
small as she is, we knew it was nearing time for her to have her first season, and wanted her protected from becoming pregnant possibly
by her brothers, if she was caught by either of them. We went ahead
and got her spayed more for her protection than anything else. She
did fine thru it, and recovered quickly, we kept her in a large crate, for
her protection, and placed it on our bed, ( Shortcake is used to
sleeping with us as is her mother and daddy! ) Shortcake accepted
the crate for almost 2 weeks with not much complaint, but after 2
weeks she had had enough of it and wanted out most desperately.
So we started allowing her out for short periods of time separate from
the other's, and now Shortcake is free from the crate, with just mom
and dad around her. This coming week Shortcake will be allowed to
run and play with all of them, under supervision, and we are hoping
that she can be free within our home and fenced yard, as before.
She surely is ready to run and play..! We are thankful that all went
well forher and she recovered with no problems.
We now have to face the fact that we either get Sapphire Lady
spayed, or keep her separate from the boys until after each of her
seasons. That is not hard to do, as we are setup with separate
fencing, and have the sun room that we can shut off from the rest of
the house, but Sapphire Lady loves to run with all the family, and
when we have to keep her separated from them she simply does not understand. We hesitate to get Sapphire Lady spayed, for she will
not period, take to staying in a crate, she has never been penned up,
and we would most likely end up having to stay with her 24-7 to care
for her. She most likely would have to have something to keep her
calm during the period ( which ended up being 3 weeks ) that she
would be limited in movement. We don't look forward to that, and
most likely will delay having Sapphire Lady fixed for a little bit
Another note: Our Little Diamond and Diamond Duke are wonderful
boys.! Most patient and much loving. During the past 3 weeks that
we have had to watch and care for Shortcake, we have not allowed
the boys within the house, except on very short occassions, and
only for a short period of time, when Shortcake was in her crate. Out sunroom is off our kitchen, and we have a 3 panel glass door which
we close off to keep the boys out of the main part of our home, or all
of them when at times we need to have them separate from the main
part of the house. The sunroom is my favorite place in the home, and
I have given it to the little terrier family. They have their own TV, their
litter box, ( I love it ), their food and water, a recliner, rug, and their
toys. So they are not in any way being mistreated or left out, but they
look within those 3 panel windows so very sadly, wanting in the main
house with us, they love to come into the main part of our home, and
be with us, and we have regretted having to keep them limited in that.
But now that Shortcake is about ready to be able to run freely again,
we can again have the family together for some cuddly time before
bedtime. The boys are looking much forward to that.!
IMPORTANT NOTE: When we had Shortcake spayed, we talked to
two different Vets. One at a clinic, the other at a Animal hospital. The clinic was about a 30 minute drive from our home, the hospital just a
short five minute drive. The clinic would have been much cheaper in
fee's for the operation,but they gave no pain medication, nor did they
do the laser surgery. We chose the animal hospital, since it was right
near our home, did the laser surgery, and gave a pain medication, as
well as did pre test to ensure Shortcakes ability to have the surgery
done at that time. I especially discussed the pain medication with
the vet, to ensure that Shortcake did NOT receive the Rimadyl drug.
This drug was given to Diamond Eye on two occassions, of which we
were not informed on the first, when they did his operation, the other
when he strained his back and they gave him the pill form. I gave him
about 1 day, maybe into the second thinking this was a pain
medication that Diamond needed, before I did an internet research on
the drug to see exactly what it was I was giving Diamond Eye.
When I typed that drug name into the search and began to read
such horrible things related to this drug, I immediately stopped giving
Diamond Eye the pill. About one to one and 1/2 months after giving
Diamond this drug, he had a spell where he could not hold his head
up and would just sink to the floor. It terrified us. We took him to the
animal hospital, where they did complete blood work on him, knowing
that he had taken this drug and had an injection of it as well, and found
he had a slight kidney infection. They never would say that Diamonds
symtoms was related to the drug, indicated that if it had been caused
by the drug it would have shown up most likely sooner. Never the less,
when we took Shortcake we made a point to tell the vet that
Shortcake was not in any way to receive the drug Rimadyl. They
wrote that on her chart. I tell you this to inform you there are saver
drugs they can use for pain for a animal, but if you are not aware of the
possible drug effects of Rimadyl, and do not inforce the issue by telling
a vet not to give your animal that drug, they will possibly use it by their
choice. So read about the drug, and decide for yourself if you would
want a pet of yours to receive it, and if not make sure you inform you vet
very plainly that the drug is not to be given to your pet when treated by
them. It could very possibly save your pets life.!
