Did someone order a fresh litter of puppies?Thursday, 29 November 2012
Poor old Daisy looks so sad in that picture. It's like she's just realising the enormity of her life choices. Maybe she's sad that the dad wasn't there, and she has to go through this alone. Ahh. I feel sad for her now.
The vet had told us that there should be around an hour between each pup. She said that if we thought more were on the way, but they hadn't appeared in two hours, then we should call her. After the fourth, it looked like everything had calmed down. Daisy didn't seem to be in labour any more, a few hours had passed, everything was very calm and chilled.
So we were most surprised when, FOUR AND A HALF HOURS LATER, the runt arrived. There he was! Boom. A tiny little thing, and more than a bit dim, bless him. I called him Monkey, because of his curly little tail and tiny feet.
So there you are. Five puppies! Oh God.... five puppies. Ten weeks of five puppies.
