Our dog Gwenn went into labour yesterday.It has been a very difficult labour for both Gwenn and her puppies.
The first one came with her behind legs and my husband had to pull her out . She is a heavy one and she weights 430 gr. and she is black/white. The second one arrived over an hour later and also with her behind legs first and she also weights 430gr and she is brown/white. She was more dead then alive and we had to really help her by rubbing her with a towel and put her in cold and hot water baths but she finally was ok. Then allready the 3th one was born and he is brown/white and weights 360 gr. and was just fine.
And then it took a very, very long time before the next one was born and my husband took Gwenn to the vet where she got an injection to help her. But that didn't help and we gave her another injection at home and that also didn't help so my husband went back and Gwenn got a surgery( I can't find the correct translation on our online dictionary) and there was just one puppy left. Unfortunately he was a very big one, also black/white, and that slowed it down and very sadly he died before he was born.

Now they're all at home and doing fine. here are a couple of photo's.

Gefeliciflapstaart namens ons allemaal!!
Het is wel zielig dat de laatste hond het niet gehaald heeft, maar de natuur is wel hard hoor. Gelukkig hebben jullie de eerst er nog zelf uit kunnen trekken, anders was het heel anders afgelopen.. Nu ben je natuurlijk de hele dag (en nacht) met de nieuwe babies in de weer... Veel plezier met de kleintjes en geniet er van (maak veel foto's!)want kleintjes (helemaal dieren) worden veel te snel groot!

Groetjes van ons allemaal!

Hallo Monique,

Wat leuk dat mijn blog hebt bezocht... en nu kom ik bij jou :)
Leuk hoor om zo steeds meer blogs te ontdekken.
Wat een rijkdom met die drie prachtige pups ondanks het verlies van de 4e. Hoe maakt moeder Gwen het nu ?
Groetjes, Janneke.
