Primrose has just given birth to the first pup at 11. 40 pm, a boy, weighing 9 ounces. Started straining ten minutes before and did not even yelp as she gave birth. Will be quick, as she is set up in the kitchen and cannot see her from the computer and hopefully if like her Mum, she will not be to long between each pup.
In the slideshow is a photo of the pup sucking, amazingly it is still attached by the umbilical and only minutes after the bag being broken it was born in it is already sucking. Always amazes me when you see pups so quickly doing this.
As I was trying to get this done another pup has been just born at midnight, a girl, 20 minutes after the first. I might not get back now until all have been born, if she keeps up this speed.
“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.”
