My sweet little baby girl Keely isn't a baby anymore!!! Shes gonna have PUPPIES!!!! She is going to have black lab pups! I can't wait but I am very nervous! I have about 62 days to research delivering puppys but I would like a few tips! What if we have to cut the baby out of its little bubble thing? see how little I know about this? I talked to a women who bred great danes and she said sometimes you have to help the mother if they are coming really fast! HELP!!!!

Lindsay! You know you could have just talked to me about it! Nikki WAS a puppy when she had puppies! Just 10 months old! But thats how we got her! Pregnant! Anyway, the mom eats everything, the sacs, the poop, the embilical cords, etc. You dont have to do anything unless there is 2 hours between puppies. Then you call the vet and ask them what to do. We almost had to do that. Also remember to get a REALLY big welping box. Also, dont let Keely sit on the puppies. There is A LOT more yo ushould know so talk to the vet. And call me cause I have a lot more to tell you about pregnant moms and I am getting tired of typing! Wouldnt it have been cool if Nikki and Keely had puppies at the same time? Oh well, too late! Nikki is fixed now! I bet Chief is happy! Call me when you get home! BFF! LYLAS!

Ya know what makes a great welping box... a kiddy pool. they are easy to clean,safe, and its easy for the mothers to get in. But it doen't last for ever because when the pups get old enough they can climb out. but we just added on chicken wire around it.

Sorry but that's one thing I can't do!!!!!!! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif But I'll be happy to help you once the blood is gone!!!!!!! I have some experiance from Nikki's puppies!!!!!!!!! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif
