Hannah's Status

Well today is day 60 (Hannah's normal delivery day/night) so we are all anxious at this point. We already know from her last vet visit that she has four puppies just waiting to greet the world.

Since Hannah is a late evening/night deliverer don't expect any more news today though.

First Week on Solid Foods...

These two little babies have just finished their first week of transition to solids foods and mom is working on the weaning process...once those teeth come thru she is ready to cut them off solid foods are looking really good this week! They are just now at five weeks old, love to play and chew on ears, noses, and give lots of kisses.

First Growl & Bark

Every now and then you can hear a tiny little rumble or squeak. No they are not hurt, they are playing and a little growl or bark comes out from one of them. Usually the little boy!

Ask Linda from Q & A

Q. RE: Assistance in delivering my puppies ..."whelping": just curious, what are the chances of loosing one? what kinds of things could happen if you don't assist? from YouTube

A. Thanks for asking an excellent question. I assist in all my deliveries and have not lost a puppy or mama in my 30+ years. But even the most experienced can run into complications along the way.

My Reasons for assistance: The chances of loosing one depends on several factors like - diet fed especially during pregnancy, size of female to male ratio when breeding, whelping experience of mom, unforeseen circumstances like an umbilical cord wrapped around another puppy, if it is a still-born, if the puppy is in the right position in the birth canal, has the labor lasted longer than expected etc. Note: This is not all inclusive. I'm sure there are many more reasons if I think hard enough.
