Delilah’s Puppies Are Here!

Delilah gave birth to 3 males, 4 females on Friday morning. She started delivering at 4:00 a.m. and by 1:30 seven puppies were born. Russ could tell there was another puppy, but Delilah was very relaxed and was not contracting. We waited till Saturday morning to bring her in for an x-ray, which confirmed there was one puppy high under the rib cage. We tried all day Saturday to help Delilah progress with drugs, chiropractor, homeopathy and exercise, but she did not progress. At 7:00 p.m. we had to have a C-Section performed. The puppy was a female, and she was not alive. The good news is, Delilah and her babies are doing well. In 30 years, we have never experienced a C-Section. Our veterinarian allowed Russ and I to observe the surgery. It truly is amazing how the body is made and how it heals. Delilah is a wonderful mother and is happily recovering!
