vet thinks she is a month older, so that would put her at 10 1/2 months,
winston.....if you would like to claim one???? my niece knows I wouldn't offer to just anyone...and she trusts me completely

hazelrunpack October 19th, 2011 07:54 PM

They're beautiful, Melinda! :flirt: So happy all went well! What color was the Poodle supposed to be...cuz unless it was black, I'm thinking maybe the Dad wasn't a poodle... :o

Melinda October 19th, 2011 08:00 PM

three have very wavy hair, no idea about the dads color but the black could be the lab in her, brinas dad waas a yellow lab and mom was a yellow lab/sheperd she had a brown coloring and all 8 pups were black

renegaderuby October 19th, 2011 09:37 PM

Glad all went well. And they are cute whatever you decide to call them. I noticed one of the pups had webbed that one at least took more of the lab half. And sometimes lab pups can have a few curly hairs at the start. Also depends on what all mom has in her too. From the people you got her telling.
All that matters is they are in good hands now, everything came out ok...and that I "know" those pups will find loving furever homes, and that skyla is in a MUCH BETTER furever home now.
Hats off to you !

growler~GateKeeper October 20th, 2011 12:01 AM

Happy to hear it all went well for such a tiny girl. The pups are adorable :cloud9:. Kudos to your niece for making sure they will be properly placed :thumbs up

TeriM October 20th, 2011 12:28 AM

The momma is a very pretty girl and those babies are adorable :cloud9:.

Yeah for your niece for stepping up and being so responsible :).

Melinda October 20th, 2011 10:04 AM

hoping this works


it probably gives you access to all her pics....*L* not sure how to stop that, sorry

growler~GateKeeper October 20th, 2011 10:25 PM

Puppy heaven :cloud9:

(it only allows access to that one album :D)

hazelrunpack October 21st, 2011 12:20 AM

omd, how adorable! :cloud9:

Melinda October 21st, 2011 01:28 PM

alrighty, a question, mom won't clean the pups half the time, by this I mean to help them eliminate waste, so my niece is taking over the practice, should she be doing it every two hours? the mom does..but only to one or two at a time then leaves the rest, never the same ones so its not like she's favoring some over the others, I think she is just too young

Stacer October 21st, 2011 02:25 PM

Wow! Poor mommy! Glad she's in a safe caring place now, she's gorgeous! I'll talk to Nathan, but I know he'll never go for another dog right now, especially with a wee baby of our own. I'd take one in a heartbeat though, if it were up to me :D

Bina October 21st, 2011 03:50 PM

Those pups are totally delicious :)

Dog Dancer October 21st, 2011 04:13 PM

Sorry I can't help you with your question Melinda, have you tried calling the vet to ask maybe? So good to see Mom did well and the pups look wonderful. They're so cute. :cloud9:

Melinda October 21st, 2011 05:36 PM

oh and she's also gathering stuff animals, she's up to 6 now (one per baby???) she never had any interest in them before, not even if you tossed them and these are ones belonging to my nieces 5 yr old, she has to stand up at the dresser to get them off the shelf,

DogDancer, the vet seems to think that maybe because she is so young and that possibly she was taken from HER mom too young that she doesn`t really know what to do.

Marty11 October 21st, 2011 09:42 PM

Goldens love to carry stuffed animals around and not even chew them. I knew a couple of them. The pups are sweet!!!

growler~GateKeeper October 22nd, 2011 01:27 AM

Some dogs & cats going through false pregnancies, or during nesting behaviours will collect stuffies, rolled up socks etc cuz they're about the same size as newborn pups/kits. Perhaps her mothering instincts are coming through stronger in certain areas & she's gathering all the "babies" in one safe place :shrug:

Melinda October 22nd, 2011 12:44 PM

she has plenty of milk, but my niece has to call her back to the birthing bed every hour and tell her to "lay down" so the pups can nurse, if she runs out of milk or continues not to look after them then I'll be bringing 3 here to bottle feed and allow brina to look after them for 3 weeks then hopefully bring them back to the mom, my niece is having a hard time keeping up with all the cleaning, not just of the bedding, but of the pups also. any comments about this is greatly appreciates.....yeah or nays for this plan?

Winston October 22nd, 2011 02:05 PM

Melinda I dont know the first thing really about pups but I am wondering if its just a teeny bit too soon. Maybe Mom is not quite getting what needs to be done. If you were to present the pup to be cleaned to Mom does she do it? I am wondering if she just doesnt know everything she needs to do?? :shrug:

Myka October 22nd, 2011 02:22 PM

Is your niece encouraging the mom to clean the pups or is she just doing it herself? I think the mama needs some encouragement. Most mamas will pick it up, there are very few that won't. However, of the ones that won't look after the pups it is usually the young mothers. Ack! This must be so frustrating for you and your niece!

You might be able to contact a local breeder that has good reviews and ask them very nicely if they might be able to give some of their expertise to help you out. Someone with lots of experience in whelping could really help you out right now. Maybe even see if there is an "expert" at the rescues or SPCA.

Bina October 22nd, 2011 02:54 PM

Just remembering a few things since I had a "Mom" dog about a hundred years ago.;)
We had the dog in a whelping box, but didn't have a safety ledge installed around the inside edge, and the Mom lay on a pup one night and it suffocated. She had 6.

Also, the Mom dog was about 9 months old, way too young, and she needed lots of help. I literally had to force her to lie down and nurse more often than she wanted to.

Maybe holding each pup to the Mommy's face will remind her that she has to clean them?
It's worth the trouble to keep trying to have them raised by the Mommy, but you will know when it isn't going to work out when the pups don't thrive.
Good Luck :)

Dee-O-Gee October 22nd, 2011 09:54 PM

I cannot assist with your questions but wanted to add my :2cents::2cents:

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][I][COLOR="Indigo"][SIZE="4"]They're all so adorable. Especially the little chocolate guy. [/SIZE][/COLOR][/I][/FONT] :cloud9:

You and your niece are :angel2: :angel2: for taking this poor little momma in and giving her the best love she could ever have. :highfive:

renegaderuby October 23rd, 2011 06:45 AM

Extremely "weird" idea..but couldnt hurt..may help. A "dab" of penut butter on the pup's paticulars to encourage "licking" ....maybe that will "get mom in the habit of cleaning off the pups"..and "insticnt" will kick in after a while. after all if neice keeps doing "moms" will kick back and relax and say to heck with it.
I i said..may be to weird...but here in this house..penut butter is the cure for nearly everything. is :D
