Third pup was born only forty minutes after the first, so just after midnight we had three pups, two boys and a girl. Primrose is suckling all three after having a drink, she has gobbled down each afterbirth, so refused food offered and is now settled having a sleep. There is at least one more pup to come.
Amazing as you are getting the pups born to suck and you can feel a pup iside her kicking, as you latch the pup on. The pups sucking help her to release more oxytocin which is the bonding hormone and also the hormone that makes the uterus contract.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
