Diary, 1st day in heat-birth
Mayla and Allan 2011
 

2011-03-11
Very sad news! But I'm very happy that Mayla is ok!
Yesterday it was time for the puppy to come. The last days Mayla gave us some signs that something was going on, but it doesn't started.
This morning we didn't have any good feeling anymore. Together with the vet we decided to do a caesarian. And we are happy that we did that.
A really small boy was born, but he looked like a 5 weeks old embryo. He was alive but we had to let him go.
Mayla is doing very well and we are so happy that we listening to our feelings, because the delivery shouldn't have started.

The last days.. Mayla is doing very well, calmer on the walks and HUNGRY! She sleeps a lot.
Her weight is 17.3 kg and her belly is 58 cm.

The last week, very exciting. Mayla is doing very well. She is calmer but she still want to join us on our long walks.

Next week we are going back for a new ultrasound.
The puppies are expected around March 10.


 

 

3:rd week after mating
We got the terrible news that Google is dead! We will miss that boy!
Mayla is doing very well, she want's FOOD! (And sometimes she don't wanto to eat.) She don't want to play with Eshra and Stevie, is she pregnant?
 

 

2:nd week after mating
Google is still missing. Mayla has changed in her behavior. She is more calm than normal. She throw up the food a couple of times.
 

 

1:st week after mating
Because Google still is missing we don't be in the mood for the Mayla pregnant. Very sad!
