Sunday, June 5, 2011...a very tough day...
The stresses of being a breeder got worse yesterday. My heart is now breaking too. People just cannot understand what you put into being a good breeder and the toll it can take on you. Today
mine was taken to a higher level as I have never lost one of my babies at almost 3 weeks of age.

Yesterday morning Spice (Yellow) was having a little trouble breathing. She had nursed in the early hours and seemed ok, but it turned quickly. After talking to the vet at 8 AM, I continued to do for her as I was instructed, but by 2 PM she was not better and I was worried....

I got Spice to the vet and had antibiotics and sub-q fluid and came home with hope, although the vet said she was gravely ill with aspirated pneumonia. She was resting and all was well until 6:45…I had been watching her non-stop and noticed she moved her head in an unusual position. I stepped over to right her head and she was gone. I picked her up immediately and she was listless and blood had dropped from her nose. Nothing brought her back… I am just devastated….as she was not the one that had needed extra care. So far LB is eating and thriving, but know they are never out of the woods....breeding is not for the faint of heart.
Not only do I grieve, but the family that will not get their little girl will grieve too.

After trying and waiting two years the puppies are finally here......
August 31, 2009, Lucy delivered 9 beautiful golden puppies.  Six females and three males.  All are doing fantastic and Lucy is being the best mother!!!
Then September 3, 2009, Allie delivered 10 beautiful golden puppies.  Seven males and three females.  There was no way she was going to let her younger sister out do her!  Allie and babies are doing great, and she is being a very attentive mother.
Allie and Lucy were both just huge, and the final week they had a very tough time finding a place to get comfortable.  While sharing the kitchen floor with them on an air mattress, they both climbed on the mattress with me and relaxed.  That's when they got the mattress and I took the two dog pillows.  I guess I need to buy another air mattress..... it time yet?
