Well I am thinking we are done !! It is 4:14am and I am pooped and Lily as well she is laying down nursing so thats a good thing. This whole thing started at 10:45 so it really didn't take to long. We have 5 beaties!! The last one was a tricky one.He came out backwards but I didn't panic because the first one came out backwards too with no problems but this guy oh man what a scare we had. Lily only pushed him out halfway then turned around and broke the sac. I new I was in trouble then and boys what a time!! She stopped pushing and I could see his little belly filing up with air and I really didn't know what to do so I woke my husband up and we worked together and I tugged gentle and he went in with his pinky and we got him out !! But he wasn't breathing so i rubbed him of and just keep rubbing until there was a gasp then I gave him right back to Lily to see what would happen . She wasn't to pleased with the little guy so I picked him up and just kept on rubbing and it paid off after about 1/2 hour he is in there just a howling!! but man it was scary!! I said thats it there better not be anymore . So now the hard part starts hahaha anyways I better go get some sleep my kids will be up soon!!
Well it is 5:30am and we have puppy number 6!!! What a surprise!! everyone is doing well except me and hubby. He is getting ready to go out the door to work for the day and is very tired!! Keep ya posted !! P.S It is snowing like crazy here!!

I'm glad everything worked out ok. I sure you guys where pleanty worried, but good endings or should i say good beginings, come to good people. AND good morning to you as well ATRESTER i see your up bright and early.
Thanks everyone for all your support. Everyone is fine I only have a concern about 1 afterbirth I can't account for so I will get that checked out. My kids are leaving for a few days I got to drive them to meet their Aunt and then boys oh boys the pillow for me. I totally forgot about St.Patty's day!! My moms birthday!! Maybe we did have the luck of the Irish on our side through that one bad birth! But its over and now the work shall begin.The babies are 1 @ 7oz, 3 @8oz, and 2 @ 9oz!! For a Miniture Schnauzer I thought that was big !! Anyways I better go grab a bite to eat talk later .Lisa
Grats on all those little babies! I did forget to mention sometimes they will take a break and then have more puppies hehe. I'm glad there weren't any problems though! Is she nursing them all alright? Have you called your vet to ask about when you should take Lily and get her checked for that missing placenta?
Lily is nursing great she has been out for a pee a few times and has eaten and is being a very loving mom it is to cute!! I called the vet and they made her appointment for Friday unles something comes up. I just need to watch her appetite,how she behaves with the puppies, if she is peeing and pooping and her energy level. If anything seems out of the ordinary I amto call and get her in there. But as it sounds she will get the check up then along with them getting their tails and claws done . Plus the weather is awful here snowing,cold and blowing with drifting snow and bad roads!! Oh the life in the Maritimes!
Wow sounds like fun, We had puppies when we were kids, I was so excited (I think I was 10) I got to stay home from school and help with the delivery. It was very scarey for a 10 year old. My mom was around but I did all the work. I would love a mini, I WANT A PPUUUPPPYYY, its not fair!!!!, they are definetly my favourite. What colors are they, what colors are the parents???boys/Girls##???
Lol Sue!! Oh man what a day but it was worth it. Lily and Ben are Salt and pepper min. schnauzers. Lily is a dark salt and pepper and Ben is a very light one. His parents actually had a white puppie in each litter they had but we didn't get that. I laugh as tonight I finally sat down and checked out the sex . We have 4 girls and 2 boys! They are all a light tan color with a black stripe down their backs I am expecting them to be like their dad and one that is dark with the white chest more like the mom. i think he will be more on the black and white side of things but their hair color changes as they get older and definatly with their first hair cut .
congratulations on the new additions. they seem like they were born at a good weight. must've been quite exhausting for all of you. glad to hear they are doing well. it snowed like crazy where i live too last night. where are you from?
Scout1 I live in Nova Scotia,Canada just outside of Halifax. Where do you live? I am getting sick of all this snow and wind and storms we have been having here!! At least I don't have to worry about anymore trees in my yard for the next Hurricane we get!! hahaha
