We’re back with great news! Cora delivered all 3 of her puppies last night, naturally!
(Anyone who donated towards her C-section, THANK YOU!! The money will benefit Cora’s rescue group and will help us with potty pads, puppy food, toys, shots, fecals, s/n that Cora and the pups will eventually need!)
She was a PRO at delivering (likely not her 1st litter) and has proven to be a PERFECT Mommy!
The whole thing went incredibly well. ALL pups were delivered inside of 3 hours. She and the pups were quiet as mice throughout the delivery…so quiet in fact that I missed the first puppy being born! She was pushing and I knew it was coming but I had no idea it would be so fast…I was letting everyone in the rescue group know, on Facebook, that labor had started and when I looked over to check on Cora, there was a little black puppy lying next to her! It was very exciting.
I did get the birth of the second pup on video…if you’d like to see a puppy being born, click on the photo below!
Overnight was uneventful…although I was a nervous foster Mom! I finally dozed off at about 4am after checking on everyone for the hundredth time–I was finally convinced everyone was warm enough and Cora would not accidentally smother anyone–and that just because a pup was squealing, it apparently didn’t mean it was dying after all, lol!
This morning my good friend and fellow ICARE volunteer drove to pick up me and the new family so we could see Dr. Rossi for a post whelp & puppy exam. Everyone checked out in good health and we were given a schedule for follow-up care.
