We have puppies !!
Announcing the puppies of Sadie and Kramer.
Sadie had 7 little leolettes last Friday. We have had a bit of a rough beginning and have lost 2 of the babies. I still have 2 very tiny pups. One is 1/2 lb and one almost 3/4. Considering my puppies range from 1lb - 1 1/2 lbs at birth this is small. The little guy dropped to 1/4 lf a pound but is back up to 1/2 lb now. I have been monitoring their weight and making sure they do not become cold or dehydrated. I have been supplementing mom with some homemade formula . I am not using a bottle as for me they take so long and I dont have good luck with them. The pups seem to be able to choke easier
I have been tubing him. I put a very small tube into his belly. Gets right in and no choking.
Mom is doing great and as usual a fantastic mom. Kramer cant understand why he cant be in the whelping room all he wants to do is sniff and lick them
So watch for lots more puppy stories and lots of pictures
