As usual, they had to carry her to the back room for her x-rays because Daisy just is not willing to leave me. However, she is happy to be carted in some one's arms. :+)
Although Daisy has been bred before, this was my little Thaddeus' first mating at just over a year of age. I guess he is one potent boy! We only bred once but it certainly was enough!
|The vet and I believe there are 10, possibly 11 pups packed in there!|
Looks like I can take a few more applications for this litter! Now, we all wait for her to deliver this huge brood. My vet and I did discuss a possible c-section for so many pups. However, I truly prefer a natural delivery as Daisy's last litter was ten and they were all born in 2 & 1/2 hours!! Keeping my fingers crossed she will repeat it. If there should be any symptom of a problem, I will promptly take her in for a C-section. I always err on the side of safety for all.
Typically, large litters come a bit early, so maybe Daisy and I will be welcoming in the New Year together. :+)
