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.
