IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE IN SEEING SOME SURGICAL PHOTOS
OF A LIVE PUPPY BIRTH, AVERT YOUR EYES NOW AND SCROLL DOWN
TO SEE THE "CUTE" PUPPIES AT THE END OF THE POST
Well, Lola finally had her babies with the aid of modern physician care - that is the vet kind! So glad that I called her today as she is going to Maryland tomorrow for a convention and won't be back until next Tuesday...thankfully they were able to do the c-section this evening and everything went well - the doctor delivered 5 puppies, but unfortunately one did not make it. We tried for a long time to get it "going" but his heart was too weak and we had to say our goodbyes.
The doctor was kind enough to let me in the operating room so I got to see first hand how
everything was done. I even had to wear a surgical mask and a hair net!
Here is the second puppy being delivered - poor Lola...
And here are the four siblings - 2 girls and 2 boys...
I had to feed them their first meal by syringe because Lola is quite "out of it"
at the moment and wasn't impressed when they were climbing all over her trying to nurse.
I have them right in front of the gas fireplace so they stay nice and warm - they also have a hot
water bottle underneath the blanket so they are nice and cozy!
And here is Lola in her own bed re-cooperating from the drugs...
