After a very restless night, at 6 am Tallulah is in active labour, starting to push.

How inconvenient!

But... puppies are coming TODAY!

Here's some photos I took of Tallulah last night:

ABOVE:  Can ya believe the size of that belly!  Poor girl, I know how it feels... even though I only had ONE at a time!  

Now... back to the delivery room....


 AND...  'Jeep' (boy)arrived at 6.37 am, then 6.50 am  Mini  (girl)arrived...  8.15 am 'Dodge' (boy) arrived, ....

I must say she dragging it out!   It doesn't help that I'm already exhausted and feeling really SICK!  No sleep often makes me ill.

I'm doing a few jobs in between arrivals...

AND...  'Bentley' (boy) arrived at 9.53 am,  'Holden' (boy) arrived at 10.23 am..... and we await the lucky last...  is  'Viva' (girl) at 11.25 am.

And we are done.

After a bit  of a rocky start, where Tallulah refused to have ANYTHING to do with the first two puppies, she started showing an interest and doing the 'mother' thing with the last 4.

Now she's looking after ALL of them.  I'm so relieved.

Stew is doing a wonderful job of getting the house ready for the Open Home!  I'm exhausted from bending over the whelping pen/puppies and mother for over 6 hours.

But it's all going good.  I've got a 'bed' made up in the back of my car for the dogs/puppies and we only have to vacate the premises for 35-45 minutes.  It will be OK.

WE are awesome like that! lol  (someone has to say it!)

I will post photos AFTER the Open Home.

3.18 pm:  So, I'm sitting in me car with just Tallulah and the puppies... and Tallulah is STILL PUSHING?????

I'm thinking HELL, she's got a retained placenta, I'm gunna have to take her straight to the Emergency Vets.

Then, just as I'm ready to go home after the Open Home she pushes it out.  GROSS.  

But hugely relieved as she should be OK now.

Get inside and the Estate Agent tells us today was a 'NO SHOW'.

Fuck!!!.... after all that stress and work!

So now we are probably going to have one more Open Home then take a 3-4 week break for Christmas. 

We actually NEED a break.

The Lady In Red's husband is finally ready to put their house on the market, so we might still sell over summer to her ... IF they sell their home quickly.

I've just put Pork Belly in the oven, Stew's gone to pick up Keera, and Steve and Bex and boys are coming for dinner.  

It's all GO here I tell ya!

Photos soon I promise, I'm just a wee bit busy right now.


ABOVE:  There ya go!  6 little puppies.
4 boys, 2 girls.

End of Day:  well a VERY BUSY day today.  Hopefully I get some sleep tonight... and Tallulah and the puppies get through the night without mishap.
I'm going to sleep in the lounge keeping an eye on them ...
