Three weeks ago tonight our middle dude came home from a friends house, in pouring down rain, carrying a little dog that he found on the sidewalk in our neighborhood.
Turns out the little dog belonged to a neighbor and after a long discussion our neighbor gave the dog to me.
Did I really want another dog?
Not sure, but I did want to provide her a good home. For you see, she was pregnant!
After two vet appts. and x-rays it was determined the babies would arrive between the 20th-23rd of this month.
Well, this morning I drove our youngest dude to school,ran by Wal-Mart, went to the gym and stopped at a thrift store on the way home.
When I arrived home at 10am, Chui, Oliver, and Gracie greeted me at the door. The same way they always do, as if it is the first time they have ever seen me and they fall instantly in love!! I need that kind of affection everyday.:o)
CoCo, our newest addition, didn't greet me.
As I looked around for her, I discovered her in one of my antique wash baskets in the family room giving birth!! The first baby was still in the sack!
How exciting for us! We have never, ever experienced animal birth.
I called a good friend, who is a vet tech, she rushed right over to help.
Below are the pictures. I warn you, one picture might be a little graphic. But, you've been warned....
CoCo is a Boston Frenchie which is a Boston Terrier/French Bulldog mix. The father of her babies, we think, is a Shih Tzu!! 6 hours later we have 5 little Bull Shihs!!
We're all tired and are going to bed!
