Thank you ltlgto and Scout. I had had the mom x-rayed and knew there were three babies. One of them did not survive, which always makes me sad. The other two seem fine. One boy 5.5 ozs. and one girl 5 ozs. Scout they are cute, but newborn Maltese always remind me of blind mice, and Ray Charles. The way Ray Charles always moved his head around. Just in case, I was always a big fan of Ray Charles. I took the Mom and babies to my vet today, and she said they are all in great shape. She also said that sometimes no matter what we try to do some puppies just do not make it. This is the first male Maltese in three litters of puppies from my Maltese. I will be glad when they open their eyes and start getting their own little personalities.
some people don't but i just love the puppy stages. sure housebreaking and training can be a pain but i just love the whole thing. take good care of those babies and add them to crickets page on dogster so all their aunts and uncles can see them !!!
Thank you Minniyar.....................Scout you know how I feel about puppy breath. I am going to see if I can put some of that on dogster for you. I love everything outside of the obvious that puppies do. Once my puppies have their eyes open and can move around a little, I am so mean to them. I walk up when they are all stetched out on their backs and say something goofy to them just to watch then scramble to their feet. It warms my heart like nothing else to watch their little personalities develop, little wagging tails at the sight of me. When they are a couple of weeks old I gather them all up in my arms, and put them in the bed with my husband every morning. You would think he would learn to get up before I do, to escape that. They are in his hair bitting his ears, you name it. No matter what the breed I just love puppies, but especially Maltese and Yorkie babies.
Thanks everyone. Poor Scout............You are so deprived. No puppies, no puppy breath. Bassetmom..............I always keep the puppies until they are at least twelve weeks. By that time I am attached to them like crazy. It is real hard to see them leave, then getting up the next morning without them is just awful.
Tj......................I doubt anyone would want to see the puppies right now, except me. When their noses turn black and their black eyes are open, I will take some pictures. Thank you for the congradulations.
When Labs are that small, I like to hold them up in the sunlight, the way it reflects off their so very short hair is like magic. I always wanted to take a picture of that, but never have, yet. I like it when they yawn...Congratulations!
Scout...............If I never hear from you again, and you have dropped dead, it won't be puppy breath that killed you. It will be from a pickled liver, and all of those boxes of wine you drink. I know that you really do like puppy breath.
