"Hey, Bev, now there are 10!"

"Hey, Bev, now there are 10!"
With Salsa in labor right from the get go on April 25th, I thought sure as heck I would be having some birthday pups. That was not to be, however. We stayed with her all that day and then at 12:35AM on the 26th, a chocolate male was born. By the early morning she gave birth to a yellow female (5:15) and I thought she was done. Bev made a quick breakfast and we then hit the sack for a while.
I guess I was awakened by Habi making a fuss because she needed to get outside. So I opened her crate and let her out. I walked back in the office and began counting noses. I couldn't believe, there were now 10. She had one more while we had gone to bed.
The litter is doing well and as as for Salsa, she is doing just fine.

Anyone for puppy breath?

I'm absolutely heart-broken at this very moment, Christian. I just walked into the house from watering the flowers in our courtyard to see that the chocolate male was dead. I even tried mouth to mouth resuscitation with the little tyke but to no avail. It looked like Salsa had shifted her body into another position and unfortunately he was suffocated.

Al, I am so sorry to hear this. I know it must be devastating. You will be in our thoughts.

wow, thats very heartbreaking... i'm sorry to hear that. i've been lucky to not lose any this time around (expecially when she had 11). i did lose one last time though and it was the only yellow male i had in that litter. it was tough.
