Life Intrusion!

So, Morgan decided to jump the gun on her scheduled section/spay on Wednesday, then jump it again for her very hastily rescheduled section/spay this afternoon.

She had five puppies in an hour and a half, finishing about an hour before the section/spay was supposed to begin. No problems at all. Except I only had one hemostat for crimping off cords. But no serious issues with bleeding, so it was fine, despite the puppies coming one right after the last.

If this had been my first litter, I would now be under the impression that breeding is easy. As it is, I can see I obviously saved up alllll my luck for the past twenty years for this one whelping. If that continues, who knows, maybe they will all thrive without any input from me and I won’t need the formula I have here until weaning … hard to believe, but it could happen!

Normal weights for Cavaliers are 6 to 9 ounces. I have personally had puppies from 3.75 to 12 oz.

These puppies: 9, 9, 9, 8.75, 6

Black and tan, black and tan, Blenheim, ruby, ruby.

I most wanted a ruby girl. Both rubies are girls. One of those is the small one, but six oz is fine. Barring disaster, they should be fine. They all *seem* fine. I didn’t look at palates, but they are all nursing, I think.

I am very happy and very tired and I am going to crash and not think about anything for the rest of the day.

Pictures later …
