LIBBIE HAD HER BABIES!!!!!!!!

Oh my I have an ulcer, and have aged 20 years in the last 24 hours! But last night Libbie had her puppies!!! OH it was so exciting, and so fabulous that she didn't seem to have any problems. We will take her and the puppies to the Doc this afternoon- one to check on her and the babies.. and two to get the puppies tails cut. I hate that... but it has to be done. I am sure I will cry.

You really want me to stop babbling and show you photos right? Sorry I have had like maybe and hour or two of sleep.

How stinking cute is this!
It was a long night for all of us! Even Autie.. who didn't sleep much and has an upset tummy this morning from worrying about his Libbie and what the heck was going on in that box! But seriously... Adorable or what??? Now if you look close, you can see Libbie of course, and three little bodies... two look like Autie and one is a copy of her Mom - Two girls and one Boy.  "Mini Libbie" as I have been calling her - never stops - she is the largest, and the loudest and you can tell... just like her Mom... will be in control.

How about some close -ups?
 Puppy #1 - was born just after 8pm - and weighed in at 5 oz - Looks like she might have some really pretty coloring. The copper coloring doesn't show until much later. But she seems to have some under her jaws, and hind legs - we will see :0)
 Puppy #2 - Came after 10pm.. yes that was a VERY long two hours!! She is the biggest of the three - a huge whopping 7 oz! Her coloring is just stunning - can't wait to see how she matures. Look at all that silver!
Puppy #3 - Well he was a surprise - about 12:30AM Libbie had calmed down and was resting, we cleaned her and the crate up a bit, and started to settle into going to bed ourselves. I decided to check one more time before passing out - and Uh... there are three puppies now! LOL This little Guy is the smallest of the three weighing in at only 4oz. He has a lot more white on him, than puppy one. But oh my is he an active dude! He is always squirming!

Can't wait to see eye colors!! But I will have to be patient that won't happen for a while. I hope we have some blue eyes there somewhere -  I just love Libbie's Ice Blue Eyes - In reality - as long as they are all healthy - I am Happy!

HUGS and -

adorable Michelle!!
Just had to share with you that I had a golden who delivered 9 puppies and what an experience it was. First 3 weeks are easy, mom does everything but the blanket changes. BUT....hold onto your hat, the next 5 weeks give you a run for your money! I figured I did poop patrol 45 times a day. But what fun!

Marilyn said...

I love this & thank you for sharing it!

I think you should be a spear head for the cause of not docking! There's a reason dogs have tails. Have you not even considered the option of NOT cutting their tails off?

Jo said...

More beautiful babies Michelle, great news!!! Well done Libbie. hugs Jo x

Congratulations Grandma!! They are precious, big question are you going to be able to part with them when the time comes? When we had puppies I cried with everyone that went( we had 10, 11, and 13 and bottle fed) Enjoy your sweet babes. Ann Lind

Oh my, they are gorgeous!!!! Well done to Libbie. I'm puzzled as to what you mean when you say the puppies' tails need to be cut, maybe if you get time you would explain? Thanks muchly, hope you're managing to get some sleep. Hugs.
