I am an Auntie again!!!

Well, unbelievably by Tuesday Nel had not delivered her puppies and she was totally worn out. Karen her owner decided in view of how big Nel was....and the fact she was so totally worn out before labor even started...that she would have Nel have a csection, it turned out to be an excellent decision.

Luckily I was able to attend as a helper, so I got to help revive pups as they were born, to help the babies settle in once Nel left the vets office, helped to weigh the pups and even to help some little ones start to nurse. I always liked Nel before but she is the sweetest girl ever and put up with everything so well, that is one sweeeeeet dog!!!

I of course left the ranch with MAJOR puppy longing, LOL, that is the danger of being around pups, but no none of these puppers will be coming home with me....although the little black female with the small pie shaped spot on the back of her neck is just soooo cute. The puppy with the almost white face and the huge black dot is a tiny thing and another favorite of mine. So I elected myself as their auntie and can not wait to see them as they grow.

I got some video of the babies birth in between my puppy duties!



I just got off the phone with Karen before I posted and Mom and babies are doing great.

The only bad thing is that I am now one more day behind, and I was already so far behind, but how often do you get to go play with puppies?

Congratulations Aunt Kathy! Nel did seem to do so well with everything. Those puppies are beyond adorable!! How long did it take for Nel to come out of the anesthesia? Must be tough to wake up and have all those puppies to feed. Glad to know they are all doing well!

Oh my, so many babies! Lots of vibes for Nel.... Aunt Kathy, how can you resist bringing one of those furballs home? But let me tell you, my human sure better not bring any stranger kitties home with her!

What a precious experience. It reminded me those baby puppy days of Eva too.

So glad to hear that mommy and babies are fine too.

Have fun being an auntie again!
