I took Lowri to the vet for an ultrasound at about 3:00. I didn't feel things had progressed much. Since she was so big, I wanted to make sure we didn't have any problems. The reproduction vet is over an hour away. By the time we got there, Lowri had already given birth to two girl puppies. We did the ultrasound anyway. Everything looked fine. The puppies were moving around and no one was in distress. By the time we got home, we had two more puppies.
|The first four. The light brindle is the boy. The girls are two reds and the dark brindle.|
Cheryl came over to assist and get some pictures. Lowri was popping them out about every 15 minutes at that point. She took an hour between #8 and #9. She has been on break since then. Both Cheryl and I felt at least one more puppy.
|All nine are tucked in around Lowri.|
