Allie went into labor on her due date and labored, as first time mamas usually do, all night long and during the next day which happened to be Earth Day AND Beagle Day.
Around 1:30 her waters broke and so we were excited that maybe we were going to have a daytime birth. However, she started to push every now and then, but not with a lot of vigor and certainly not consistently.
At 4:30 another water sack appeared – this one clear and so I figured there was a puppy close….but we waited and waited and no puppy came. Allie was not in distress, and I kept in regular contact with breeder friends and with my trusted vets Dr Cyndi Smith from The Pet Dr and Dr Anders Thorsen from Klahaya Animal Hospital. Since we weren’t having green (indicating placental detachment), and Allie was calm, we decided to wait patiently, but around 9:30pm it just felt like we weren’t progressing and I didn’t want to wait all night and lose a baby (or worse all plus Allie) because we waited too long.
So, Dr Thoreson kindly allowed us to come in for a c-section. My loving husband and 14 year old daughter were there to rub puppies after I “caught” them.
We quickly realized why the puppies didnt come out – they were HUGE. 2 boys and 3 girls. Boy 1 was 12.35oz, Boy 2 was 11.82oz, Girl 1 was 10.62oz, Girl 2 was 11.46oz and Girl 3 was 10.82oz. Those were some big babies. And they were HUNGRY. We got them latched on as Allie was waking up – poor poppet.
She is adjusting to motherhood slowly – she doesn’t dislike them but i think she is very confused as to why these little beans keep wiggling all over her. I am doing all the potty work right now – I am sure she will catch on soon. <3
These puppies are sired by my homebred by Leo – CH Kazuri’s Hear Me Roar. This is his first litter and i have to say I like what I see so far.
Enjoy their brand new pics – proper ones coming soon.
*please note, these pups are not available at this time*
