Weighing in and a loss
The pups have been progressing well and growing. They are filling out and have adorable, little, round tummies.
Which is why I was shocked to find one dear baby dead today. It was a horrid shock, and I have been teary all day. But, it is also very common. I think her mama laid on her, and she was suffocated. Honey has been plopping down right on them a lot, their cries for help bring me running to do a head count and find the missing pup under her mother.
I’d had three of those wake up calls during the night. But did not hear this one cry out, and I was near the box when it must have happened. I am trying not to feel guilty, because I know how easily that can happen, and how often.
But I do.
It has been such a hard day. It helps to think that now, Ryan has a puppy to take care of. He was always right there with me, helping with the pups and keeping me company as we laughed about how cute and silly they were.
So sorry Karla!

So sorry about the puppy! You should not feel guilty, these things happen and maybe you are right, maybe the puppy wanted to be with Ryan!
