I am so very sad to tell you that we lost our puppies. We are beyond grieved that we won't have one of her wonderful babies to keep and carry on her line. I know many others were looking forward to those babies, and I am just sorry. Just a short synopsis, she was to have a small litter, and went into stage one labor right on time, but did not progress to stage two, so I called the vet after as we approached 20 and 24 hours for advice/intervention. They simply would not take me serious and repeatedly told me she was NOT in labor and basically I should chill. In the end, we ended up with a delivered large dead puppy 12 hours later and a C-Section to deliver the others and save her life a few hours later. Though they take responsibility that they messed up and are addressing it with their staff, it has been a terrible loss for us.
We are expecting puppies October 1st! I have been waiting for two years for this breeding...I really, really wanted this last litter so I could keep one of Sadie's babies!
It was such a long trip for her to visit Cadron Creek's Duke, but worth it as these will be such fantastic puppies!
