"This is Sugar, our one-year-old Mini Chihuahua. She gave birth to three puppies. The first, a black female with white chest, was born on Dec. 29, 2009 at 11:35 p.m. She got stuck in the birth canal for over an hour and wasn't breathing. Sugar had broken the sac before she came out. I had to go in with gloved hands and K-Y lube and help get her out. We got her breathing but she would not nurse properly and you could hear the fluid in her lungs. She passed away on Dec. 31, 2009 at about eight in the morning. She was the smallest of the three."

"The second, a blonde male arrived at 1:53 a.m. Dec. 30, 2009. He is Sugar's favorite (mine as well)."

"The last, a black female (the biggest) with white paws, white tip on her tail and a white inverted "T" on her back, was born at 5:23 a.m. on Dec. 30, 2009. She's feisty and is a nonstop eater—she's fat already!"

Although this section is based on a whelping of an English Mastiff, it also contains good general whelping information on large-breed dogs. You can find more whelping information in the links above. The links below tell the story of Sassy, an English Mastiff. Sassy has a wonderful temperament. She loves humans and adores children. An all-around mild mannered, wonderful Mastiff, Sassy, however, is not the best mother toward her puppies. She is not rejecting them; she will nurse them when a human places them on her to feed, however she will not clean the pups or pay any attention to them. It is as if they are not her puppies. This litter is getting mom’s milk with major human interaction, manually giving each and every pup what they need. In return, the pups will be super socialized and will make remarkable pets, however the work involved is astounding. It takes one dedicated breeder to keep this situation healthy. Thankfully this litter has just that. Read the links below to get the full story. The pages within include a wealth of information that everyone can appreciate and benefit from.
