a long waited special litter

Samber has her pups at early hours this morning. She has been restless for more than 48 hours, her temperature went like a yoyo, one minute 36.6c, the next 37.5c; I watched her like a hawk and haven't been sleeping for three nights. Starting Thursday night, she kept asking to go toilet every hour and each time I let her out, she had poo and wee, it is very different from her last litter ...

It all happened at 3am this morning, I heard squeaky noise. I thought, OMG, puppy! I had a look nothing but the whelping box had a little puddle of water, so I guess her water broke. Samber then kept squeaking while I wait for the pup to appear. It have been going on for 10 minutes and I didn't like the wait, so I tried to help, unfortunately he got stuck, eventhough his head appeared first but I could not managed to get him out. We rush to the emergency vet and the vet tried to get the big boy out but he was lifeless. My heart sank, I thought: no more boy for me again, is this the faith?

I agreed with the vet we will have a c-section and at the same time have Samber spayed. We waited for 2.5 hours and finally the vet came out with good news. Samber and her pups are well. This is a special mix litter, we have a big sable & white boy, a shaded sable girl and a little tri girl. All pups are suckling well and I need a couple of hours of sleep zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
