a very sad pup-date

We lost the teeny weeny tri girl after 24 hours. I do not know what went wrong. She was doing very well, she was fed on hourly and is the most pushy puppy on the milk bar. Whenever she crawl to the milk bar, she will push her brother and sister away. She was a very strong puppy, I never have doubt about her eventhough she was only weight 3.5oz
I was very tired after a whole week of no sleep, I finally crashed myself to bed at 1am on Saturday night. Before I went to bed, all puppies were fed and I was happy. I woke up at 3am to find the little tri girl was push aside and looking lifeless. I did everything I can to get her back, she was a little fighter, she bounced back at 6am but suddenly faded away at 7:20am. I cannot tell you how upset I am . Having lost two perfect puppies is like taking my life away!

This is the most difficult litter I had so far, on Sunday, the sable girl was bleeding, I cannot tell you how scared I was. I managed to stop the bled and everything was ok. She is suckling well and gaining weight. I hope she continues to thrive. I dare not close my eyes and I am dead tired!

And poor Samber was very run down as well. She had temperature, badly dehydrated, inflame ... I've got her sorted at the vet yesterday and she perked up in the evening and now wanted to in charge of the boys  and Sipzie again!! I am so glad that "the" Samber is back.

My boy is robust and the most noisiest! He is very lazy though, I have never seen him going for the upper teats, he is always lying flat to go for the bottom teats :)

Oh no, Lian, so sorry the little girlie didn't make it. You must feel so sad! Hopefully the other two will do very well. They are soooo cute. Maybe the dark girl will look like Skye!
