|Welcome to the world!|
Heidi and Hudson’s pups make their grand entrance!
We are delighted to announce the safe arrival of Heidi and Hudson’s puppies. It has been a whirlwind twenty-four hours. A trip to the vet revealed that Heidi was having very weak contractions and the puppies were ready to make their debut but her cervix was not open. At approximately 9:00 pm on Tuesday, February 26th, Heidi gave birth to twelve adorable and vocal puppies via C-section - six boys and six girls!

We would like to thank everyone at Graham Animal Hospital for their amazing compassion and dedication. Special thanks to Dr. Carol Graham and Dr. Rasa Levenstein for once again going above and beyond.
The entire event occurred during a tremendous snow storm, however the puppies were snuggled together, keeping warm in our incubator during the lengthy trek back home.
The puppies are doing well and mom is getting to know them slowly. Heidi is still groggy from the surgery and a little uncomfortable, but is nursing non-stop. Fortunately she has a tremendous reserve of milk and no-one is going hungry!
That’s it for now, but be sure to join us next week for another riveting installment of “Puppy Tales”.
