All breeders face the possibility of a failing puppy.  Some breeders choose to let nature take its course.  There was a time when I was in the hospital for three days.  Leaving a brand new litter at home.  My dear, dear husband is a cattle rancher.  I told him it was super important to weigh pups twice a day for the time I was gone.  Sadly he did't do it.  That baby needed to be supplemented as mom really didnt have any milk.  So baby was starving. When...

My sweet little Girl Dazzle lost her first litter. The first little boy was too large for her pelvis. Side note at the time we did not have an emergency clinic or a vet that worked after hours. (this was several years ago) The nearest emergency vet was nearly three hours away. And I knew that she wasn't going to last three hours. So a person does what they must. I finally was able to get ahold of the puppy and managed to pull it myself. This poor little boy had already passed away. It ju... Read Full Post »
