Pups started to arrive at 5am, Abi was pretty restless last night so Gerry slept near her ready to raise the alarm that the pups are on the way.
Abi had 4 pups then the contractions eased off though we knew that she had at least 2 more as we could feel them. Waited an hour and called the Vet@Vets4Pets and they advised us to come in. Off in the car we went with Abi in labour and a basket with 4 pups. Into the vets and after a quick check they confirmed our suspicions and Abi was given an injection to speed the contractions up.
Back in the car and only 5 minutes from the Vets and another wee pup was born unfortunately the pup didn't survive. Back home and Abi went to the garden to relieve herself and instead had another pup, after a quick clean up the pup joined his brothers and sisters. Thinking all was over and we could finally breath when along came the final pup.
So 7 puppies, 6 healthy and 1 dead - Mummy is a superhero as managed like she had litters before, you wouldn't have though that this was her maiden litter :)
Final tally 2 Blenheim 1 boy & 1 girl, 2 Black & Tan 1 boy & 1 girl and 2 Tri-colour and you've guessed it 1 boy & 1 girl.
