Primrose's 3rd puppy arrived another boy at 10.40 and the 4th on its heels at 10.50.
The 3rd puppy had pooped in his bag and can be distinguished easily in the photos because he has a green tinge to him from releasing his Meconium before being born. He will be one to keep a very close eye on for Meconium Aspiration, which can cause pneumonia if enough was circulated into the lungs before birth.
The 4th pup is a tiddler and another boy at only 5 ounces. The other pups are between 7 to 8 ounces . Tiddler is on the far right in the photos. looking at how pink his pads are and his lack of hair compared to the other pups, he may of been conceived a day or two later and he has the look of a premature puppy. He is vigorous with a good suck reflex, so time will see if he rears. I think we have at least two more pups to come.
“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.”
