They’re Here!

Long night for all but… Puppies are here!

LONG NIGHT for both Deja and I as she progressed through labor in preparation for puppies. Knowing this was a large litter, we had opted to do a C-Section today, 6/11; one day from her due date (6/12/18).

When Deja’s temp dropped significantly (97.1) last night at 8:30 p.m., we knew she was having puppies today anyways, with or without a C-Section! And when Deja started having early contractions at around 4-4:30 a.m., we knew puppies were coming!

Phone calls made and Deja’s CS was moved up to 7:00 a.m. (was scheduled at 11 a.m.). Unfortunately, I got stuck behind a train that then stopped; CS postponed until 7:30 because the main star was late (LOL!) when we finally arrived at my vet clinic.

Hectic time and too many to thank but… Deja and her NINE PUPPIES are all doing well. While I am disappointed she didn’t have 10 puppies as originally thought were saw on her x-ray, I AM GLAD we did the CS (because at home, I would be still waiting and worrying about a supposed 10th puppy!)

Deja is home, recovering nicely from her CS, and is bonding with pups. All are good sized (which may account for the miscount?) and doing well.

More to come but I am going to go take a nap! My puppy sitter is keeping a close eye on Deja and the pups. I feel truly blessed with such a gorgeous litter of pups thanks to Mr. Journey and his wonderful owner, Shannon!
