Hey everyone! Guess what! You can stop hearing me moan and groan about my worries about the arrival of my lone puppy. SHE (Yes a GIRL!) has FINALLY arrived!
My boyfriend came home from work and saw Chels in her whelping box but did not think anything of it. All of the sudden, he hears a odd noise coming from her. "That's a new noise.." he thought when he peered down and hiding near Chelsea was this dark tan & black little girl! She blended right in with the blanket!
ITS A GIRL!!
Chelsea managed to deliver by herself without ANY warning of being in labor (or we would have stayed home from work!) She did SUCH a fantastic job that the ONLY sign of birth (other than the baby of course) is a few drops of blood on her toy. THATS IT! Everything else is spotless and cleaned up. The baby was cleaned up VERY well.
We took Chelsea & baby into the vet today to double check their health. While we were in, there was another woman there whose chihuahua gave birth to 3 babies the night before. (Small world!)
Anyway - we've decided to keep her (how could we not?!) Her name is Phoebe! Chelsea is being a FANTASTIC Mom and attending to Phoebe's every cry and need. Anytime anyone other than Forrest or I go near her, she growls at them. (She's protecting her little one!)
Here are Phoebe's first pictures of her first day on earth!
Momma is happy.. but very tired!
It's been a LONG day!
Does anyone have any guesses as to what she's going to look like when she is older? (Maybe someone can find a picture??)
