She was an excellent Mom to her pups, and has a lovely, quiet demeanor. The photo at right shows Liberty nursing her own litter of 10, and Rascal's litter of 10 when the other dog contracted mastitis and could no longer nurse them. We did not try to bring this about, Liberty just voluntarily went to the yellow puppies. Liberty sleeps on a mat at the foot of our bed as she has from the day we brought her home at 18 months old. She will never leave us.
