Yorkie Pups Survive First Vet Visit

Well the puppies have had a long week so far. First, being born on Monday night, about 4 days early. Followed by their first visit to the vet...to have their tails shortened and dewclaws removed. Not great fun at all, but part of the standard for Yorkshire Terriers.Before they had to leave for the vet they were just relaxing with their mom...grabbing a little food and maybe a nap. Carefully Nana packs the pups into a carrier for their trip to the vet. We had put Carly into another room so she wouldn't be all spooked and crying about her pups.
We arrived at the vet and talked to the doctor about what we wanted done and how the pups were doing. We will have to take them back in a few weeks for shots. The vet did the procedure and we took the puppies back home to mommy. They cried a little but really seemed to take it all in stride.
So with newly stubby tails they settled down and took a nap after rejoining with their mom. Carly checked each pup out and fed them a little. You can see where their tails have been shortened to a nub.
The "Fabulous Five" then rested for the night and today spent most of it resting also. The only sounds were when Carly left the whelping box to eat or drink...but she quickly returned when they started to cry.
So sleep little ones and soon you will open your eyes to a new world. One that will be a lot more interesting now that you all are in it. Nana weighed the pups tonight and they have gained about two ounces each...still smaller than Tinkerbell was at the same time. Nana takes good notes with all our litters so we can analyze each litter and compare notes.
So the "Fab Five" have had a long week of life so far...next week will be easier for them..all they have to do is eat, rest and cry...all three comes easy for puppies.
I will post more as they come..until then have a great Memorial Weekend and check back with us...thanks to the well wishes we have recieved from everyone who has emailed us. We hope to hear from you all...our email is watersideyorkie@yahoo.com. we will answer each and every email as quickly as possible.
