Welcome to the World Puppies!

Shiloh in the Vet's officeThe puppies are here! We just got back from the veterinarian's office with 10 healthy puppies. Shiloh had been in mild labor since yesterday, and this morning during contractions we noticed some signs that labor was not progressing as it should. We ended up performing a c-section at the vet's office this afternoon around 1:30 pm. The good news is that they are all healthy and nursing like champs. It seems that the cause of the labor inertia was that two puppies were both trying to make their way through the uterus and out at the same time... I guess it's an early case of sibling rivalry to be in first place :) Thankfully, all is well! I am sure everyone would like to know the colors and genders of the litter, so I thought I'd include some statistics about the litter.
 
puppies only 10 minutes old
 
     *There are seven males and three females (probably why there was the competition from  
       the start ;)
     *The two yellow puppies are female.
     *The three chocolates are all male.
     *There are five blacks, of which one is female and the other four are males.
     *All of the puppies are between 13.1  ounces and 16.4 ounces - which means each puppy
       weighs a good amount for such a large litter.
 
 
One of their first mealsWe'll be sure to take lots of pictures along the way to capture the sweetness of this wonderful bundle of pups!
