My labor of 9 Loves - I am a Mother!
The labor was a difficult one. The birth was supposed to be in the early hours of Friday morning but the babies wouldn't come out. Ming went to the vet weeks before and determined that there were 7 puppies. It could have been the additional 9 more that made it hard for Ming to deliver the puppies naturally. Ultimately, the decision was made to take her to the vet to perform a c section. To everyone's surprise, instead of 7, she delivered 9 puppies! The extra ordinary large size of of the litter could have contributed to the difficulty.
Nonetheless - Ming is fine!
Date of Birth: Friday, April 25, 2008 - about 1pm.
Before being pregnant, Ming was about 16 pounds - at delivery she was about 21 pounds.
