Slammers' new mom and dad want to spay Slammer as soon as possible as they are not into the heat cycles and they agreed to a second and final litter before she was spayed. The timing worked out that now is a good time.
Slammer started about 12:30 a.m. and was done by 3:00 a.m. The ultrasound showed 3 pups and after the 3rd pup she didn't feel done so we waited. The last puppy was of good size and was having a bit of a rough time making it out. We have never had one "get stuck" before. She pushed and we could feel it was close but nothing. We whisked Slammer out of the whelping box and walked her around for a minute and then finally got enough of the pup out to pull during her contractions. It was blue and not breathing and already out of the sac. Start to finish that all took about 3 minutes but it seemed like forever!! After a little brisk rubbing and getting goo out of her mouth she was fat, happy and nursing in seconds flat!!!
All four pups and Slammer are doing great!! And the best part is they are ALL girls..... We both triple checked :)
Girls are healthy strong pups weighing 7 3/8 oz to 5 1/4 oz and were nursing within seconds!!!!
Good girl Slammer!!!!
