How about culling a couple of pups so she has less to take care of. Her and the pups will do better and it will not drag her down so bad. Had this conversation a couple of weeks ago with a knowledgable dog man. It maybe a option.

With having 3 litters so close together, I am hoping to be able to balance pups out in the boxes. I like that option -vs- culling pups at a young age, that could possibly be rockstars. I'll bottle feed them, before that. I know what you are saying, but my request list for pups from this litter is full and I'd hate to cull a pup...especially from that litter.

Just came back from checking on Lacy. 8 puppies right now. 5 males - 3 females. Hopefully done. Two are tan and the rest are dark like Lacy. Not black, but a funky chocolate/bluish black. Hard to explain. She's got it too. Must be the Blue Lacy blood.

I know what you are saying about the rockstar thing. I sure like that Dixie Gunner cross. I hope it works out great for you. I bet those pups will make nice dogs.

W2B has been monitoring this thread closely and can't wait for the pics. Not even married yet and she wants to get back from the honeymoon so it will be closer to the pups arrival.

Hope all turns out well.

Tony, I just saw your post, if it was my dog I would shoot her with tetrocyclene (sp?) And rub cocoa butter into her bag. Make sure to keep the milk flowing from her. I have let tHe pups keep on nursing, and never hurt them, I know other guys who also have. But worst case get down there and milk her like a Tiny cow, or a Goat (Tim can help you with this process, I hear he has lots of experience!haha) but seriously, if you do this, it should pass, and clear up in three or four days, and be right as rain.

I highly appreciate the advice. One breast got hard as a rock, by the time I found it and milked out puss and blood. The other teets all had blood in the milk. The hard breast finally split open on the sides and leaked out everywhere like a boil would. She's been on penicillin for 4 days now and the milk cleared up. Still bottle feeding and letting them nurse on her, not wanting to take any chances.

Brian, Gunner's cough is seeming to clear up. I'm hoping it was just a grass seed down in the lungs. Wouldn't be the first time for him, while decoying.

I'll get pics soon Steve. Inlaws just left after 1.5 weeks of visiting/staying with us. Live will get back to normal now. smile smile

Thanks guys.

Tony

Lacy is having pups right now, two born already. They are HUGE puppies. I'll be up with her most of the night, as this is her first litter. Hoping to be able to swap Dixie pups on her 5 or 6 times a day, instead of bottle feeding. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Will take pics when I can.

Wow with having hunters there as well your hands are full. I feel for ya.
