End of Day 2 - A Tiring Day
Ming had a hard day today. She was panting - whether it was too hot from all those puppies who want to get fed or just the pain of giving birth + the C section. She has been a champ throughout. Today, it seems her maternal instincts kicked in as she wanted to ensure that all her puppies were with her. When we took one away, she perked up and was visibly stressed.
This was really apparent as we tube fed some of the lower weight puppies. The puppies do object loudly and Ming is very sensitive to it. Aside from this, she has a healthy appetite as she has been eating voraciously. Her meals consist of chicken and rice mix with dry dogfood + a topped off with a helping of yogurt (plain).
During the night time tube feeding, the puppies were protesting but Ming was out like a light.
