The puppies are here!
Friday, April 17, 2009
My sweet little doxie, Heidi, delivered her puppies on Tuesday night--two boys and four girls. Sadly, the last puppy, a little boy, was stillborn. That really broke my heart. Thankfully, the rest are healthy and doing great. The smallest weighed only 3-3/4 ounces, and we are supplementing her with puppy formula to help her get enough nourishment. She's up to 5 ounces as of today. The largest one, also a girl, was 7-1/4 ounces at birth and is up to 10 ounces now! I posted pictures on my web page if you're interested.
I'm so proud of Heidi--she is a terrific mama!
