Joy waiting!
Click on pic to see a video of Joy's puppies moving. Look on the right and watch carefully. You can see her breathing but you can also see extra movement.
Joy's x-ray. If you look carefully you can count 8 skulls and 8 "zippers" - the spine.
Joy delivered 8 healthy puppies on Wed. evening. She has 6 girls and 2 boys. All are doing very well and are already gaining weight!!
I have to thank my 4 very good friends who gave up hours of their day to come and help me deliver the puppies. Sue Roberts, Ros Hale, Beth McGibbon and Cathy Langill. I broke my right wrist so am incapacitated!! They did a great job. I couldn't have done it without them.
The girls have a pink mark on them and the boys have a blue one.

Click on the pic to see a video. The puppies can't go to the bathroom on their own so Joy has to keep licking them to stimulate them. She then cleans up!!

click on the pic to see the video. They are under a heat lamp so the colour is yellow. Hopefully I'm not moving the camera too much. It isn't easy with my left hand!!
d4. Joy sits up sometimes for the puppies to nurse. They are taking up more room on the milk bar!!
