I just found out that Domi, the whelping female dog that I had hoped to get a puppy from the litter of, had to have an emergency c-section last night. Only 3 of her 9 puppies survived. It's sad, because I know the breeder takes so much care of her dogs, and to loose 6 like that from a litter would just be heartbreaking after all the time and effort put into caring for the dog. Heck I'm depressed, and it's not because I'm not getting a puppy. Blah.
minniyar that is so sad. i hope mom and the 3 pups are doing ok. how strange that she lost 6 out of the nine. was there a problem she had that made her have to have a c-section or was she in labor too long.
I emailed the breeder asking for more details on what happened, am still waiting to hear back. I do know the puppies werent expected until march 24-28. I guess it's possible that those 2 days early being born was too much for them to breathe normally. I know she's used the same vet for years and years, so it's not the inexperience of the vet.
