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.
The picture below is of Diamond Duke, 2 weeks and 2 days old,
although his sister Shortcake, and brother Little Diamond have
opened their eyes, Diamond Duke hasn't opened his yet, not
that I have seen anyways.

This picture is of Little Diamond, at 2 weeks and 2 days old, and
he opened his eyes today, Sept. 1, 2004. Little Diamond has a
black diamond shape in the center at the top of his head, and has
one black colored eye and one white colored eye. He is lovely
indeed, as is his brother Diamond Duke, and sister Shortcake.
Each are unique in markings, and I am sure will also be in
personalities as well.
This picture below is of Shortcake. The picture is reflected in
the mirror we were beside when we took the picture. She too is
2 weeks and 2 days old. The only little girl. The brothers seem
to stay close together, more so than they do with their sister.
Yet at times they all cuddle together. Shortcake opened her eyes
first, yesterday. She is adorable too. Each gets alot of little
touches and loving from me everyday. When I clean their bed,
I usually take each out and cuddle them for a few minutes. I
love to hold them, but refrain from doing so much at this early
This picture is of Diamond and Sapphire, taking advantage of a
quiet evening, while the babies are sleeping. They are just
enjoying being as they use to be together. Saffy doesn't mind
Diamond Eye checking on the babies occassionally, but doesn't
want him too very close to their bed. Diamond is absolutely
wonderful, and doing fine from his surgery two days ago. We
love Diamond, We love Sapphire, and we love their babies..!
Shortcake at 3 wks and 5 days old. Here she is yawning!
Shortcake in another pose, this time not yawning! 3 wks and
5 days old.
Diamond Duke, 3 wks and 5 days old. Beautiful.!
As each of these darlings are unique and lovely in markings.
Little Diamond, 3 wks and 5 days old. All the puppies went
yesterday and were wormed. The vet said that they were
healthy and lovely.! Although Shortcake was the largest at
birth, she is now the smallest.! But she has already barked two
times, and the brothers have only made little sounds. Diamond
Duke, is now the biggest of the three, and was the first to take
off on all fours. Little Diamond, well this little guy is the baby
of them all, as he is the one we hear doing most of the crying,
when they cry, which is seldom. Saffy has done wonderfully
with her babies, Diamond Eye adores them, and prances around
like a proud father after he is allowed to take a close look at
them. All these little ones, will most likely join my husband
and me in bed at night, as does Saffy and Diamond Eye.!
Wow, I am glad our bed is king size..!
Sapphire Lady has done well with this being her first litter, and
will be her last as well. We have watched her most carefully, and
tried to keep her eating well, so that she maintained her health
and the babies. As of this date the puppies are almost 4 weeks
old, and doing fine. They are now playing and even doing small
attempts at barking. We are now giving them a little taste of
puppy food we specially make, daily, in trying to help prepare
them for weening.
Last nite, we noticed Sapphire Lady was swollen in one breast,
and took her at 1:30 am to a ER for Pets to have her checked.
She was given a shot of Amoxicillan and some pills to take for
the next 10 days to prevent infection from setting in. The
puppies are still nursing, as they should according to the Vet.
The Vet bills were unexpected, and of course we would do
anything necessary to see to Saffy's care, as well as the babies
and Diamond Eye. But acquiring a Son from Diamond Eye,
which is one of the reasons we got Saffy, has both been exciting
but expensive. I know people that have pets that do not go to
what alot of my family thinks is extreme as we do, in caring for
ours, but we don't look at our pets as just animals, they are truely
like children to us. Anyone that makes a decision to have a pet,
in my personal opinion should be willing to assume not only the
responsibility to care for that pet but make it a part of the family
and their home life. Extreme we may be with our babies, but we
don't think we over do it. We do by them as we would by a child
we had in our care. We love our little pet family and hope that
all little pets are cared for properly and lovingly by their owners.
Our little ones are in-door pets, part of our lives on a daily basis,
part of our family..!
Shortcake is already ( her being the only little girl ), treasured by
my husband, and his favorite. He says, "Should we decide to sell
one, even two of the puppies, Shortcake stays..! Of course the
two boys, Diamond Duke and Little Diamond, would be extremely
hard for me to choose between, and as they are the little guys, I
would want at least one of them to keep. I guess it looks like all
three babies, Stay...!
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 sleep in.
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!
**UPDATE** Our little darlings are now 6 weeks and 1 day old, and
oh my how wonderful they are.! They love to go out! and are
beginning to show good signs of heading toward potty training
success..! Diamond Duke, well let say he sort favors me, I think,
and I might possibly lean a little toward him as well, since Shortcake
is my husbands favorite, but we absolutely do not leave out our Little
Diamond, as he shows the most tendency to be more turned in his
unique personality like his daddy, our precious, Diamond Eye, who
I might add has been the reason, and beginning of having been
blessed with our little family of Jack Russells. How we love these
little loving natured babies. Diamond Eye, has been "fixed" and
will no longer be able to help have babies, Sapphire Lady will be
"fixed" next, and these little ones produced by the mating of
Diamond Eye and Sapphire Lady, will be their only children.
The boys, we are considering not to have fixed, as they could
carry on the unique markings and the wonderful personality of
this little family's heritage. Shortcake, we don't know which way
to go with her yet.
Would you believe, I had a email just a couple of days ago from
a person interested in discussing the mating of our Diamond Eye,
with their female jack? Three weeks too late...! We already had
him "fixed"..! We have had our Diamond Eye, on our webpages,
for over 2 years, and over 1 year in our search for the perfect
mate for him, ( before we found Sapphire Lady ), and no responses
on either of those subjects. Our Diamond Eye and of course our
Sapphire Lady, have produced the most gorgeous babies I have
ever seen. The markings are lovely, their playful and loving
spirit are a joy to see, and they are the best behaved, as well as
most quite to learn, of any pet we have had thru the years, and
we have had some wonderful pets, that we loved very much.
These we are thankful to be blessed with. I regret our little
Diamond Eye, as handsome as he is, as gentle and loving
nature that he has, cannot be productive in mating any longer.
His babies are beautiful to behold...! Diamond Eye and Sapphire
Lady, have been a perfect match, and their little offspring, are
I will post more pictures in the next few weeks, as our little
darlings continue to grow.

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 for her 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 longer.
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 betime. 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.!
