Introducing the Second Chance Litter

The second chance litter was born yesterday evening.  Naveen free whelped 6 puppies from 5pm to 9:40 pm.  I thought there was a seventh puppy so at 2 am we were loaded up and headed to the ER vet.  False alarm.  I still don't know what I was feeling but palpatation by vet and xray confirmed that there wasn't anymore.  All puppies are doing great.  They have all gained 0.9 to 1.1 oz since their birth.  Naveen is a great mother.  She is so attentive and careful with them.  She's what like to see in a mom.

The pictures aren't the greatest but without further ado here they are, in birth order....

Black and White Girl 11.0 oz at birth

Blue Merle Boy 12.4 oz at birth

He also happens to have a marking that looks like a tugboat, There is another picture further down that shows it a bit better.

Hard to see in the photo but about a third of his face on the left side is black

Who may also be the coolest puppy ever the bat signal on his back!

And for those of you not on a facebook here are some photos taken yesterday as they were being born

Puppy Count X-Rays

The second chance litter is due this week.  We went into the vet for x-rays to get an idea of how many puppies to expect.  Vet says there are at least 6.  Here are copies of the x-rays they took.  Feel free to make your own counts.  I'm at work and not able to enhance or change the contrast.  Please ignore her breed and date of birth.  I don't know what happened this morning, but they're not correct.  I'll take good medicine with silly errors like that any day. :)
