3rd, 4th & 5th Is Here!!!
The 3rd puppy was delivered half an hour later after the 2nd one. Don't know the sex yet. The 4th came after shortly but almost didn't make it. Amber ate the placenta before I could stop her. The umbilical cord was still not tied & cut yet. Amber refused to let go of the placenta in her mouth & she almost ate the whole cord. So we cut it but it was way too short & blood gushed out of the puppy's stomach! OMG! We immediately put pressure on it but the puppy didn't wake even after all the rubbing & stimulation we were giving. After 15 minutes, it was struggling for air. We blew at its face & my Mom swung it up & down gently. A lot of fluid came out of her mouth & nose. We gave mouth to mouth resuscitation & then finally, it started breathing on its own but was still weak. We totally freaked out. She is the smallest among the five. Now she is a screaming, squealing, wriggling little monstah! She is a strong sucker & very naughty. She's a real fighter! The blood has finally stopped & she is doing fine. The 5th one is a big size male! Very quiet boy. Love this guy! Now we're waiting to see if the 6th & maybe more will come out. Amber is extremely exhausted but she's doing a good job.
