Wow did we have a crazy night! When I left you, we were 2 hours into labor and she couldn’t get the first pup out . I called Dr. Fred’s reproduction tech Jessica Mayes who did the artificial insemination and offers whelping assistance too. She came right over with oxygen and her bag of tricks but after two more hours, we headed to Metzger’s Animal Hospital. Dr. Fred left his Easter dinner and immediately and c sectioned the dog. We knew from X-rays last week that we had a really big pup in there and he was stuck in the birth canal. Jessica helped revive them and all 5 puppies are doing great! Speed had 4 males and 1 female! I can’t thank Dr. Fred and Jessica enough!! Deuce thanks them too and is a proud papa. If you see him, he has the doggie cigars to pass out! Here’s a photo of my good buddy Dr. Fred Metzger with the new Lion Country setter family and that’s me!
I’ll return with the story of Jessica and her animal reproductive services business. It’s really cool and boy not that expensive either. Sure cut back on my wine bill on this litter! Speed is being a great mom and I have some more cool puppy picks and videos coming soon so stay tuned to bucks blog!
