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.
