Thursday morning, after tending to pups and letting Honey out off and on throughout the previous night, we were enjoying watching the wriggly pups nurse and squeak as we drank our coffee.
My husband turned to me and said, “Can you count?”
We both bent over the box and peered closely at the squirming pile. After about three and a half hours of delivering pups Wednesday, I sat with her a few hours before saying good night to 8 beautiful new babies.
But sometime over night, that turned into 9!
I groggily did multiple recounts, and yep, there were 8 born on the 16th and one tiny boy born on the 17th during the early morning hours.
Honey got a special cottage cheese sundae to congratulate her on the newest baby.
