The puppies are here.

After a sleepless night Saturday night , the puppies finally started arriving at 6:05 a.m.. Jackie had the first one pretty easily. But, the second one would not come out. After waiting awhile we made the decision to go to a 24 hour vet, 30 minutes away. I held the whelping box with Jackie and her first puppy in my lap. I tried to help her. I was worried the other puppies would be affected. Five minutes away from the vet the second puppy was born. I tried for a long time to revive it but it did not make it. So sad. Very soon after, puppy three was born. Then the fourth puppy. By now of course we were on our way back home. We did not go to the vet. The fifth and final puppy was born at home at about 9:45. She has been a great Momma.

I have never helped with puppies. It was as very amazing experience.


  1. Poor Miss Jackie, she looks tired. Sorry to hear about the one little puppy. Congratulations on your furry grand-puppies.

  2. What a sweet dog. Sorry to hear about all the trouble. Very glad to hear everything is going well now. Congrats and how fun!! You will have to share pictures of them as they grow!!

  3. Aren't those trips to the ER Vet horrifying? So sad about your tiny one, but I'm glad to hear the others did well.
