The 8th Puppy!
The 8th puppy was born around 7.30p.m. It's healthy & strong just like the rest. I haven't checked what gender it is. The 6th puppy is really dead, already cold. Amber seems to know it's not alive. She kept on putting it in her mouth & just now she tried to carry it. I don't know what she's trying to do to it. I wonder if she's trying to eat it? Is that what dogs normally do to a dead pup? I know in the wild like the Big Cats, they do that so that they don't waste it. The Vet just left. He did an examination on Amber & he says there might or may not be another pup left inside of her. She just had her Oxytocin jab to clear out everything & if there's another pup in her, it will come out too. But we cannot tell if it'll come out alive or not. We know there's two placenta still stuck in Amber so this jab will help. The jab takes 15 minutes to work. She has started her contraction again because she's pushing again. We hope everything clears out. So anyway, the pups are all asleep soundly. They are oh so adorable!
