Puppies, Puppies, Puppies..Let The Fun Begin

Well we thought Carly would deliver early..she did the last time. So we were hoping for some kind of early warning...she played it as cool as a cucumber. But with no signs of labor, no panting, we still got everything ready for delivery time.We got her whelping box ready, simple quarters for mom and her puppies. All cleaned and sterilized..now we wait.

The other dogs stood waiting patiently...well, all but Shiloh. As you can see below he gets involved in any delivery like he's the father...but he's the male of our herd of Yorkies.He stood there for the whole time of delivery...or laid down, with his nose through the gate..watching. He is a very loving dog, he takes his family seriously. Tough job, but someone has to do it.
So around 7:56 pm Carly started to pant, to dig her way to China. It's "Puppytime"...battlestations everyone.
At 8:45 pm the first puppy came into the world, a girl, weighing 4 ounces. We named her "Haley" for now. She is pictured above watching her brother, "Merlin", come into the world at 9:02 pm. Weighing in at 4 ounces also, he looks similar to his sister.
He was followed by "Flash", weighing in at 3.5 ounces, delivered at 9:19 pm. He will be a scrapper, being the littlest, he will learn to fight for a nipple fast. At 10:47 pm we delivered "Ozzy" into this world. Weighing in at about 4 ounces, he too is a handsome puppy. He has a white star on his chest...his tattoo.
And last came "Rowdy", in at 4 ounces also, he would finish the night in style at 11:18 pm. What a night...1 girl, 4 boys...Carly you outdid yourself...now rest little momma.Nana will help your pups get started with feeding, and I will watch over you like Shiloh. We will help you keep them warm and healthy, while making sure you eat right and have everything you need too.
So the puppies came into this world a kicking and a screaming...the next generation of our dogs. We will take care of them until they are ready for adoption. We temporarily name them so we will be able to call them individually. Plus for us to keep records on each pup...a journal for each puppy.
So by midnight we were done, the puppies were feeding, mommy was resting, all was well.
I still stayed up with Carly, watching over her and the puppies...what's sleep anyway. And I wanted to comfort Carly, let her know that she did a great job, and that I was there for her.
She slept a little, she deserved what she could get.
But as soon as one of the puppies cried, we both sprang into action. She's lucky that we don't own a bigger pen...or I would have been sleeping in there too.
But around 3 am I decided she was ok, the puppies were ok and I needed to get some rest. I put the baby monitor near the pen and tried to sleep a little..but with each noise I awoke..waiting to see if everything was alright. And poor Nana had to go to work today...she will get a nap when she comes home...I'll see to that. She is a loving wife, and a kind, loving and knowledgeable Yorkie owner. It is beautiful to watch her anticipate the dogs moves and react to them before the dog even has a chance. She did a excellent job with Carly's puppies, and I was proud to assist her. I Love You Elsie.
So the puppies are resting, I just took Carly out for a bathroom break, and a little sunshine. But she was eager to get back to her pups. They need her to comfort them, feed them and teach them the ways of the world.
I will post more on the puppies as time allows. Our herd has grown from 4 to 9 in hours. We will find homes for them, teach the new owners the responsibility of owning a Yorkie. And be able to tell them the many benefits of owning the most beautiful dog in the world. It only takes a few minutes with one to realize the love you will get back when you have a Yorkie in your house, and in your heart...and with 9...Lord help us.
Wish us luck and drop us a line if you like, we can be reached at Watersideyorkie@yahoo.com. We love to hear from other Yorkie owners, we all have a bond of furry love.
Thanks for dropping by and reading my blog..maybe Carly will feel like writing in a few days..check back if you like.
