|Licorice ~ our new little Mama & 2 of her 3 puppies|
At the "lovely" time of 11:40 Sunday night, Licorice decided it was time to have some puppies! The first one came quickly 11:45 or so ~ since he is all black and give the closeness of the hour, we named him Midnight. 2 - 3 very long hours later, Little Miss decided to make her entrance into the world, breach. We worked on her a little bit, got her breathing, and back with mama. And then.....nothing for hours. We took Licorice to the vet because we were sure there was another puppy ~ xrays confirmed our suspicions and the vet thought it was 2, and one was breach. Licorice stayed the afternoon with them, they gave her a shot to see if labor would resume, and ended up doing a c-section. Little Mr. Dalmation spotted chihuahua was in a U position and couldn't go anywhere. If they had not done surgery, he would have died and possibly Licorice. I don't know if it was the surgery/anesthesia but neither Licorice or little spotty have their bonding down with each other ~ and he isn't nursing. I made a trip to the co-op for puppy milk replacement and 2 tiny bottles. Amy hasn't gotten him to suck yet, but he did get a full tummy...drop by drop! Maybe they will warm up to each other soon.
We are thrilled with the progress of the garden so far. I love watching everything grow and am ready for ripe vegies/fruit. We had to replace one of our fruit trees in the front. After it bloomed and leafed out, the leaves yellowed & dropped off....since we just got it in Sept. it was still in its 1 year guarantee period, so we got a new one and Will planted it yesterday. I really like all the little plants flourishing in the blue barrel. I would like to get a couple more and plant them the same way ~ advantage.....the puppies leave it alone ~ too hard to dig in the little areas!
