First off, I want to thank all of you who have sent your good wishes and that have prayed for us. It has been a roller coaster 48 hours.
We almost lost Snickers sue to excessive blood loss yesterday. I took her back to the vet today for a check up as I was very worried about her still. We all were having flashbacks, esp. for the staff at my vet clinic.
Snickers needs tons of R & R as these pups took so much out of her. I went and bought the highest calorie dog food I could find (Abady, 800 kcal per cup - retailer was an hour away) and I am feeding her lots of yummy ice cream and yogurt with it.
This is the Special Sundae for Snickers. Abady food topped with 2 scoops of vanilla bean ice cream and dehydrated liver "cherry on top".
Now, on to the puppy photos!

There are no mismarks, and very few solid white collars.
A friend who raises Pembroke Welsh Corgis had a litter due today and the dam was only carrying 2-3 pups. They have offered to take some of our puppies to nurse and I think I am going to take her up on the offer, to give Snickers a break.
