It's 1.46am and we are home from taking Neko in for a caesarian. Guess what, I have never been so glad to be WRONG!!!! so lucky I didn't bet money there was only 2 puppies, because we have 3!!!!! In order of birth, a seal coloured GIRL..like Neko weight 220gms. Next a jet black great big fatty boombah BOY weighing 300gms!!!! and last, hidden away like all the experienced breeders told me, a beautiful jet black GIRL weighing 170gms. If they'd been born naturally the boy would have been first and I think it would have been risky. I very much doubt she would have got him out. I'm disappointed we had to have a caesar, but I think it was for the best. Thank you all for your good wishes, photos will come tomorrow.

Looking forward to seeing photos of them once you and Neko have had some time to rest and get used to the new additions.

So exciting!

Big hugs...

That was all very quick - the last thing I read was "she just ate a huge dinner" ...LOL.

Glad she's well, glad they're all well. Hope she heals up nice and fast.

Will also patiently wait for photos.

I've been reading and waiting and reading and waiting and WOW! I'm sorry Neko needed a cesar but it was clearly for the best. And you only had 2 heartbeats and images because fatty boombah was taking over in there!

Can't wait to see pics of the new bubbas and hope Neko takes to motherhood well and heals quickly from her surgery.

Hoping everything is going ok and that Neko has accepted her babies. It's always that little harder with c-sections. Thinking of you!

hi everyone, thanks for all the good wishes. Neko and her 3 babies, 3! I still cant get over it, are doing well. She's an amazing Mum especially considering she went to sleep and woke up with these little aliens on her. I've only bred 3 litters and 2 of them have been caesars now so my record isn't great there.

I think last night would have to go down as one of the most stressful in my life. The awful dilemma you are placed in. Do you let her try to whelp naturally and risk loosing a puppy, or perhaps all of them, and even her, then again, she might get them all out OK, or do you go for a caesar before the birthing has progressed too far and still risk loosing the mother due to the risk of surgery?

After frantic discussions on the phone with Marcus who was driving up, we opted for the caesar.

I knew what to expect regarding the distressing image of seeing your beloved dog on her back with her stomach cut open and puppies being pulled out. My friend Iggy Mum was there for me and Neko and we were each handed a puppy to rub to life and get breathing. While we were occupied with that, and it's pretty frantic and stressful, I suddenly heard IM say," is there another one?" and I thought dont be silly, of course not, then I glanced over and saw the tiniest puppy I've ever seen being held by the other attending vet. I couldn't believe my eyes, but I was so busy with the ones we had and it seemed lifeless to me so I just said "it's dead" and tried to focus on what we were doing, then we were brought over a third to keep us occupied while the vets stitched up my Neko. They went from being these wet still lifeless little forms to writhing squeaking tiny puppies in the space of a minute or so, but it's a pretty tense minute.

Now that I've had some time to look at them I can tell you, the first born, the sable girl is almost the image of her mother. Not quite black, but looks it until you get a real black beside her. The markings are almost identical to Neko, the white chest and white feet. She weighed 225gms I think, pretty much the same as Neko at birth too.

Then the huge big black boy who if Neko whelped naturally would have been first born and almost certainly caused massive problems, with a pretty good chance of being born dead, and maybe taking the other 2 with him, weighing 300gms he's the biggest IG puppy the breeder has known of in her lines in all her years of breeding. It doesn't necessarily translate to him being big as an adult, that's a wait and see.

and lastly the secret little girl that I couldn't find, hidden up high where the experienced breeders told me she might be, but I didn't believe them, I didn't have a bit of doubt there were only 2 puppies, I'm so happy I was wrong, the tiny almost all black little girl. She was a bit slow to start to suckle, she did a bit last night but today was slow and I was worried for a while, but she seems to have it all sorted now and it plumping up beautifully and pushing and shoving with the other 2, and she's claimed one of the biggest teats low down so she'll get plenty of milk. I think she will be a plucky little girl.

I wanted to get similar shots to Widgets litter, of Marcus holding the day old puppies, but we left it too late, we were all too tired and grumpy to persevere. I didn't want to take them out of the room to somewhere with better light and upset Neko all for the sake of a photo. Oh well, hopefully I will get better ones tomorrow when we've all had some seriously needed sleep.
