blackshep I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your brother.

And oh my, what a big litter! You must have your hands full, they look like beautiful pups! Congratulations, on a job well done. You really rose to the occasion, and I hope you and your husband feel really proud of yourselves. I'm sure your brother is looking down with a big smile on his face.

SunCzarina Wow this whole story is amazing. You crack me up 'Makes sense but mother nature is disgusting sometimes.'

I'm sorry for the loss of your brother and this whole ordeal. Someday, you'll have one of these fine puppies and he's all grown up and look back and laugh on these crazy times.

leahngo1984 Everything is going great so far. Their eyes are starting to open sincelast night. They're already staring to walk. Or at least are trying to. Steadily gaining weight.about 2 to 3 ounces a day. Will send pictures when I have more time. Thanks everyone. And I'm still sleeping next to her every night lol

carmspack "don't know anything about DHA, people in the nutrition sections may be able to help on that."

give the fish oil to the MOTHER dog , the correct amounts will be expressed in her milk for the suckling pups.

RebelGSD This thread has a lot of useful information about raising a litter:

selzer Yes, some blood when she urinates is still normal-ok. The reproductive tract and the urinary tract share some plumbing, so as she leaks a bit from the one area, and then urinates, it just carries it down the pipes.

If you want to ask any questions about the environment, puppy temperature, how much they should be gaining, etc., I went to Robert Hutchison, DMV, at Animal Clinic Northview, located in North Ridgeville, Ohio, though the other reproductive doctors there -- the fellow that did the c-section seemed very top notch as well. If you want their number, I have it on speed dial.

Believe that sometimes ordinary veterinarians don't have the same knowledge.

On the other hand, sometimes critters do have something wrong that we just aren't privy to. A heart condition or problem in the brain, and they just don't make it. And sometimes a bitch will walk or lay on a puppy. So many possibilities, but nothing makes it any easier.

It certainly is a significant undertaking, and a labor of love for your brother. If the others are doing well, try not to think about the lost one, for the bitch. She will realize that you are sad, and she will be more worried. Be strong for her, and be happy for the ones that are doing well for her.

Keep on trucking. I think I went for 3 days on 3 2-hour naps. It gets better. They are getting to the point, where they are over the critical period.
