After what seemed like an eternity of waiting (but was actually only 65 days), we’ve been blessed with the arrival of 5 little Olde English Bulldogges.
The biggest blessing, however was that our wonderful vet was able to safely deliver them via c-section and save all of the puppies as well as our Lily after complications developed. After what I believed to be unusual behavior, we took Lil to the vet on Wednesday for a check and they discovered one of the pups was wedged in sideways putting the whole litter into fetal distress.
In their distress the pups had already clawed up her uterus causing some internal bleeding and infection. Once they were into the c-section, it was still touch and go, both with Lily and with the ‘little girl’ but I’m happy to report mom and babes are doing just fine.
