I have an acquaintance who breeds labs and Brittanys mostly for hunting but also a lot are family dogs. Everything I know about him is that he’s a great dog guy who “produces” great dogs, I know several folks who have his dog so and they are very happy with them. My daughter wants a puppy and has a deposit in for first choice of his recent litter from chocolate dad and Mom. His dogs produce chocolates and yellows, my daughter wanted a yellow girl. The litter started as one yellow boy, one yellow girl and 5 chocolates, a mix of boys and girls. My daughter was so happy until the 2 yellows died within a week or so. Daughter was crushed and is now trying to decide if she will take choice of the chocolate girls, wait, or get her deposit back (which guy has offered cause he knows me and feels bad). My question is; is it normal to lose 2 pups from a litter? After a few days to a week? And is anything strange about it being the yellows? Thanks!
