Thank you all for the prayers and advise. I lost 6 of my beautiful puppies this morning. I have never been this sick in my life. I haven't cried this much since losing my parents. My Dobermans are my LIFE. I did everything, so did my vet. He said it was nothing I did. But still I can't stop crying and thinking I must have done something wrong. They were so precious and fat and healthy just one week ago. Please pray for the puppies I have surviving. I guess you can all go to my site now and see my babies, as I will not be selling any for a while. LavelleDobermans.com. The main picture is of all the babies I lost. You can see how healthy they were. Oh God I can't believe all my babies are gone.
I took 6 of my other litter to the vet today as a precaution. I am so heartsick. There was one little red boy that was my love from the second he was born. His name is Aidan. His story is a miracle of life from the start as he was born dead. I tried for almost 10 minutes to revivie him. NOthing. I was devastated! Isabelle's first born from her first litter! Well, I put him in a baby blanket and then a cloth bag and set him on the front porch. I knew I had to stop crying, as Isabelle needed me. As I delievered the next 2 puppies, both big and healthy, I heard a cat squealing on the front porch. It drove us nuts for over an hour. I even turned up the tv so we wouldn't hear it. I finally went out on the front porch to get rid of that darn cat...and it wasn't a cat. It was that first born puppy! He was alive! His placenta was completely intake and he was till attached to it. He was screaming like a banshee! I was elated! It took an hour of work to get him latched on to mom, but he did and he thrived! Now normally Jan 5, outside Buffalo, is freezing. Not this day, it was almost 60. I never I had to keep this little boy as part of our family. He was so attached to me and Wed. when I went for my daily visit at the vet's, he was in bad shape. But as soon as he heard me, he tried to turn and walk towards me. I picked him right up and held him. I prayed so hard he would make it and was sick when he died. WELL! The vet had a surprise for me tonight. I prayed to God for a miracle to give me hope. And when I went tonight for my visit, Terri, my babies care taker, told me she had a surprise for me. Aidan is still alive! He started holding things down today! I am so lifted in my spirits! I still have 2 puppies that we might lose, please keep them in your prayers. I need to try to get some sleep tonight. I has been days since I have slept.
Thank you all so much for your prayers! I will keep you posted.
