It's a Boy!

No pictures yet, but Charlie did have her puppies this morning. Five boys, but only three survived. The first was stillborn, the second was stuck, necessitating a trip to the vet's for a c-section. He was dead when they got him out, but the three remaining were all viable so that's good. Charlie was still groggy when Anne called, but was perking up. More later when I get the next report and a picture or two.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear that two didn't make it! I had a cat years ago that was in labor way too long so we had to take her to the vet. The first two were breach. He just pulled them out. He ended up doing a c section on her, spayed her and fixed a hernia all at the same time and there was only one left. They all lived. It was so sad and such a hard time for all. She didn't want to feed them because it hurt. I would put my hands so that the kittens would be moving their little paws on me instead of her. That seemed to help.
