HiFolks, I have attached a few pics of Truly Scrumptious with her pups. She is doing very well and the pups look to be thriving, unlike me who is on puppy sitting duties :sick: Worth every second when I watch Truly tendering her pups :kiss:

A few more photos courtesy of my dad and his super duper and singing and dancing camera (so he tells me).

Puppies all doing well. Truly has had a bit of a temperature but seems to be better with a chance of pain killer and anti biotic.

Cant believe how fast the pups can scuttle around the whelping box :woohoo:

Hope you enjoy the photos. :cheer: The puppy lying on Truly's leg, sleeps there all the time!

The puppies are just over a week old now and have almost doubled their weight with one big bruiser weighing in at a healthy 1.1kg's..... The others vary from circa 900 - 1000g with the 1st born weighing in at 745g which is an increase of 369g since birth (he's a wee cutie).

Truly is recovering from her section and is much more lively now the pain seems to have eased a little. She has been an excellent mother despite all she has been through and has tended to her puppies from day one.

It is incredible to see their little personalities taking shape as well as their body masses and shapes changing. There are a few bruisers and a few with lots of brindle markings through their coats.

We have three confirmed homes for pups and another looks likely as well as us keeping a bitch.

Here are some up to date photos of the puppies, hope you enjoy them as much as we do (apart from the night duties!!!)

Poor Truly Scrumptious - In the early hours of the morning I noticed she was very quiet and took her outside for a rest and a drink. She drank loads of water and was immediately sick and almost 'drunk like' on her legs. I was alarmed at this so took her temp and it was 40.1 (104) and I noticed that one of her teats was very inflamed and hot to the touch. I had checked her wound about 9pm and it was fine and did not notice any problems with her teats.

She was clearly unwell so I called out the vet who confirmed her fever and fact she has Mastitis in one teat. She got a few injections to help the pain, inflamation and infection and came home a sorry looking soul. She was scheduled to go back to vet earlier yesterday afternoon. She was a bit brighter but still not herself. Her temp was still up at 40.1 so another couple of injections were given.

Pleased to say that as of 0130hrs this morning she is more alert and eating and drinking normally again. I have just taken her temp and it is down to 39.0 (norm 37.5 - 38.5) so I am hopeful she is now fighting off the infection and on the road to recovery although this will take some time.

Despite all this, the pups are doing fine. One wee boy lost a bit of weight today so he is being carefully monitored and gets priority feeding.

She's a really brave girl and doing us all proud in the face of adversity.

Hi, Sorry to read about poor Truly. Hope she will soon be back to herself. Are you having to hand feed the puppies, or is she struggling on?
Good luck!

Had Truly Scrumptious back at the vet this morning to have a check up done on her progress. Her temperature continues to drop, now 38.8, so she's going in the right direction. Fortunately we have not yet had to revert to bottle feeding as Truly could not be kept out the whelping box other than the few hours after she was first ill.

She goes in the box, tends the puppies and feeds them watched over by us so the infected teat is not suckled. We put a loose piece of gauze over the teat to protect it during feeding, then remove afterwards and this seems to have worked.

She is a lot brighter this morning and even wagged her tail in the vet surgery - good sign.
