Trinity had 11 pups Thanksgiving day!!

Ive been planning this pregnancy for a year & the time has arrived!
My vet ultra sounded Trinity in October & told us they saw 4 pups. So that's how many I sold. Thanksgiving morning at 5am she went into labor, had 4, then 4 more, then 3 more!! Yea to say we were shocked is an understatement!!! They are all beautiful amazing babies. 5 girls & 6 boys all healthy & huge except the runt. They weighed 1.4 pounds to 1.16 pounds except "Tiny Tim" he only weighed .82 ounce. He has gained & is almost 9 ounces now even though the rest are close to 2lbs!

This is my first litter, & possibly my only one as this was much harder on me & my husband then the dog. We felt horrible watching her go thru this, so I don't think I am meant for this. Although the puppies have stolen my heart & there is nothing better then puppy breath!!

I am rotating the pups to give Tiny Tim a chance to live. I have him with 3 other smaller ones. I rotate them every 1 1/2 with mom 24hrs a day & night. I'm exhausted but till he can fight the others, I'm not giving up on him. I have a heated basket I rotate them to. It seems to be working out, its day 4 & everyone is still gaining weight. They are so beautiful!!!!

Its going to be mass chaos in my home in a couple weeks. We built the whelping box in my bedroom, we thought there was only going to be 4. This is going to be interesting to say the least!!

That is so nice! Ahh, puppy breath, don't you just want to bottle it!! As for Tiny Tim, my boy too was the runt, the breeder gave him extra bottles at night.. At 4-1/2 months he was 55 lbs... Enjoy!!

Just a reminder to everyone that as per board rules (that you all have read when you joined up, right?), there is no advertising or selling, or soliciting or buying of puppies on the board. I have edited a few posts to remove comments in that vein.

Feel free to discuss the breeding/whelping/puppy raising experience, and puppy pics are a must!!!

OMG, you must have been in shock. How could the vet have missed 7 pups!
I raised a litter once for the shelter. She had 10. I weighed each pup every morning and the ones who hadn't gained enough weight I let them nurse first (kept a log) and rotated the two groups like that the entire day (didn't use formula) until the vet gave me the OK to start feeding solids at 3 weeks. Puppy canned food, mixed with puppy formula; 1 tbsp three times a day for each individual pup. I was exhausted and the mess was horrendous but it was so incredible sweet. They all made it without any runt.
Enjoy them while they are home with you. Like our own kids, they are grown before you know it.
