There's a 10th One!

Just half an hour ago, the 10th puppy(probably the last too) popped out. Unfortunately, it's too late. The puppy has been in her for 8 hours. It's been way too long. And what's the saddest thing? It's also a girl. We lost three gorgeous girls. We tried everything but to no avail. If only that 1st dumb doctor we called came at 6p.m & immediately gave Amber the Oxytocin jab then I think one or two could have been saved but he was too selfish to help. He's only 15 minutes away & he knows our place. The 2nd doctor that came only came closer to 8p.m. The three puppies will be buried near our home tomorrow morning. We'll still give them names. The 7 however are still going strong. I'll be uploading the pictures of them very soon so stay tuned.

By the way, I just wanna thank you all for the kind & sweet wishes & comments you all gave to Amber during this difficult event. She is doing great & she has stopped pushing. I think everything is out already. The pups & her have been moved to the Crib. Amber still hates her Crib I don't know why. But we're forcing her to stay in there to make sure she feeds the pups.

We will always remember the sweet puppies you lost, as we will see them in the faces of the ones you got to keep! How wonderful!

Get some rest, sweet girl!

Glad to know that Amber is finised giving birth and that now she can rest and tend to her babies. 10 babies is a lot for one mother to carry in her belly :( and I'm glad to know that the 7 pups are healthy and strong!

What an event Amber and Happy Momness!
I don't think I would like being in a crib unless I had ALL my toys with me.
You will be fine with the new additions.

I have just now caught up on all the news. So, so sorry about the three that didn't make it.
Very happy for the other seven, though. Can't wait to see pictures and hear more updates. Take care!

Petey said...

I'm passing out lots of "it's a boy!" and "it's a girl!" cigars (the beef jerky variety, of course)! Congratulations on the Lucky Seven puppies!!!

We can't even begin to imagine how frustrated you must have been with that first vet. GRRRRRR! But we're thrilled to pieces that you have SEVEN happy healthy pups! Can't wait to see them!

Your pal,

Uncle Petey

What a night all of you have had. Our best to the beautiful mom and all her darlings. Also to you and your mom for your valiant attempts to save the pups. We are looking forward to seeing them.
We agree with Kyrha. The Rainbow Bridge needed some very smart and beautiful puppies to romp with the older dogs and keep them young.

Charlie said...

You all did a wonderful job brinigng those beautiful pups into the world! It's sad to lose some, but you tried as hard as you could to save them.

Now comes the fun part where they develop personalities!

Congratulations to Mom Amber and Grandma too. Sorry to hear of the loss of three but nature has its own way of telling us what is meant to be.

Woos, the OP Pack
