Finally puppies again
After Razzle and Frolic retiring, Nomi in a rest cycle, that only left us with Nike and Blanchi to have puppies. Both their cycles are about a year, so it had been a long time since we've had puppies to raise.
Blanchi had Posh's puppies Thursday night, and Nike had Jefe's Sunday night.
Both were all nighters. Pam stayed up all night both nights, I managed to get a few hours of sleep.
The first one was born to Blanchi when I was in relieving Pam so she could go get something to eat. She said Blanchi wasn't having contractions close together, so she didn't think she would deliver before she could get back after going to the kitchen to get something to eat. She was wrong. About the time she got out of hollering distance, and had left her phone in the room, Blanchi started having continuous contractions, and started delivering a BIG puppy that was breeched. No chance of communicating with Pam, and work to do in a hurry, I helped Blanchi get it out, and had to pull the front out after she got the back end out first. All was well though, without problem.
We've been taking turns sleeping in the nursery. We're really enjoying them, and hopefully will be caught up in sleep and things to do soon to be clear headed enough to get some pictures.
I don't know how people who work a job and also raise puppies do it.
Those on our list only wanting a girl need to be near the top of the list. Only three girls total, and we are hoping to keep one of them.
