1 puppy born 4/29/18
For the last couple of weeks I had
been telling Scott that Zelda was pregnant with only 1 puppy. Somehow I
just knew. Usually when they carry 1 puppy they barely look pregnant,
but she looked more like she had 4 puppies being carried up high in her
ribs. We also knew her sister carries puppies up in her ribs, and
figured Zelda was the same way. Zelda had 1 female puppy at 1pm on
Sunday and then went back to sleep. I walked her, I fed her ice cream,
but she was done. She still has big ribs, so I guess she is just fat.
When I first got her she was much thinner than I like, she had no fat on
her at all. I spent months try to put weight on her, and I guess it
happened while she was pregnant.
I'm trying to
look at the positive side: The puppy was normal sized and Zelda did not
need a c-section. I spent most of the day the puppy was born being
bummed out. I have people waiting for puppies and I hate to disappoint
them. Anyhow, we have the difficult task of raising a singleton now. It
is more work than raising a decent sized litter (nobody for her to play
with, her mother is the type that will let this puppy run the show).
This little girl will be staying with us unless she turns out to be more
pet quality (which I'm not expecting...all things
happen for a reason). Her name is Eris after the 2nd largest dwarf planet.
