Arrow had her puppies today!! It all happened rather fast with her temperature dropping last night and then starting labor about 7:45am and the first baby arriving shortly after.
Unfortunately, the first delivery, while it went smoothly, Arrow whelped a puppy girl that presented with some development issues – we rushed her and Arrow to the vet but she could unfortunately not be saved. The vet assured us that we didn’t do anything wrong and that the placement of her egg/placenta probably didn’t allow her the right amount of nutrients to grow properly. We will forever be grateful to the team at Companion Vet clinic in Snohomish for the care and support they gave to us.
While upset, Brianna was a trooper and held her as she passed, and we named her “Cherry” as we will bury her under a cherry tree later today.
Arrow started to push again, and within the next hour, she gave birth to 3 healthy baby boys.
Momma and the 3 boys are doing great – Arrow has taken to her new role as momma with enthusiasm – its hard to convince her to eat or go potty – luckily she is only 12 lbs and so easy to carry outside for a quick break.
we will provide updates as they grow – we are already so smitten 🙂
This morning we got Arrow’s xray done to know how many babies to expect on the big day. I don’t like to leave it to chance incase something goes wrong.
So, we confirmed Arrow is expecting 4 today. Now the waiting game begins 🙂
A normal average gestation for dogs is 63 days after ovulation. I have heard that Cavaliers tend to give birth between day 58-60 so that would be early next week. I’ll of course keep you posted
Kazuri is proud to announce that, for now, these two little beagle babies are going to be sticking around to grow up for a while.
Previously known as “Girl 1” and “Boy 1”, they will now be known as Emmy and Oscar.
We are excited to watch them grow in the coming months and see if they develop as we hope they will. Only time will tell 🙂
Miss Arrow’s pregnancy has flown by so fast and we are now about 2 ish weeks away from meeting our little cavalier babies. Arrow looks amazing – until you pull back her hair, its hard to tell she is pregnant at all. But when you do, there is definitely a belly 🙂
Next week we will do an xray and see how many to expect. I cant wait to announce their safe arrival 🙂
