Quick Update: The Gang's All Here, and All is Well!

One shot at the vet's office did the trick.  And Elsie was just fine about it all (here she is at the vet's; the plastic box behind her with red plaid blanket on top is our holding/warming box for the pups):

Five minutes after our return home (with Elsie and pups from the vet's), Elsie whelped the lovely Miss Pink, a lovely black female of 13.5 ounces.

Twenty minutes after that, we welcomed another handsome black male who, wearing the yellow the collar, will be called Master Yellow. :)

So, not including our still born #5 (black male), here's the gang:

Miss Lime (yellow female)
Master Blue (black male)
Master Red (black male)
Master Green (black male)
Miss Pink (black female)
Master Yellow (black male)

That's five blacks and one yellow in the new family (four boys and two girls). :)

And here they are:

And all are doing just fine!  Here are just a couple favorite shots from this afternoon.

Like mother, like daughter (Miss Lime nuzzled with Momma Elsie)

Master Green and Miss Pink nap on Momma Elsie's snout.

Master Green (atop Miss Pink) with Yoda ears.

That's it for now. I'm off to get some sleep.  I'll see you all about midnight EDT (our 24/7 puppy watch has begun -- more on that later!).

Until then,

Congratulations! Whew, I am glad that part is over. You think you had it bad - I had to sit here, obsessively hitting "refresh" every ten minutes! :-)

You-all deserve a major nap.

Congratulations on a job well done by all of you. A beautiful litter. I love those sounds the babies make.

I'm with Julia.. I was checking as much as I could all day at work... I am so happy the rest of her deliveries went well... Poor Mama Elsie must be so tired. At least that part is over.. now let the fun begin!! Looking forward to pictures and videos of mommy and babies... and the rest of the gang! You can rest now, I'm sure it feels soooo good! You deserve it.
