Katie is a wonderful mother

6th December 2014  Katie was due her litter of puppies today, conceived from 1 mating to Johann, she surprised us by having them 2 days ealy on the 4th December.  The last litter she had of 2, she struggled to deliver as her contractions weren' t strong enough, however with the help of our brilliant vets she delivered them naturally.  This time we used Fit and Fertiles Help to Whelp and she had no problems whatsoever.  It was quite strange really, she had a contraction on the hour at 12, 1, 2, and had a puppy 20 minutes later the first three being boys.  She then had another contraction at 3.00 pm and delivered a girl 1 minute after the contractions started.  Puppy 5 followed at 3.30 and as we thought she was finished as there had only been two on the scan taken on Tuesday, we booked a vet's appointment for 6.00.  At exactly 5.00pm she had another contraction, Ian of course said I was imagining things and he took her off to the vets.  They checked her out and said they thought there may be another puppy, so he stayed there and half an hour later she had another girl.  So we have 3 boys and 3 girls.  The moral of the story being never take as gospel what the scan shows!!

Puppies first wash!
