Today, I'm going to share a piece of good news with all of my readers, I'm so overjoyed as I write this article, I think I will write this in stages. The readers who have been following my post on noise.cash and read.cash would have figured out what this article is about by now.
On the first day of November, I lost Harmony, one of my dogs and I thought to myself, November is ruined forever. I saw Pip's eyes (my second dog), I could tell she was lonely, her favorite play partner was dead. I kept her company so she won't feel distressed and sad about it. It was her first time being pregnant and I wanted to make sure she was in good health to avoid any miscarriages. I increased her food and ensured she went for regular visits to the vets.
Oh, for new dog owners, if you have a pregnant, avoid making use of Ecto-parasites chemicals to bathe her, it can kill the babies in her womb. I learned that during my visit to the vet.
No offense intended to ladies, I know this first hand because I had to take care of my Mom when she was pregnant with my little sister, she was always cranky, and nothing ever seemed to satisfy her. Now, I'm guessing that was the same thing Pip was going through, and the only way she could express this feeling was by showing her aggressive nature towards strangers. Trust me on this, you don't want to get on the bad side of a pregnant dog.
Unlike humans, dogs don't carry babies for up to nine (9) months but a few weeks (usually nine to ten weeks). I thought I had it figured out but the mother knows best.
When a dog is about to give birth, her mother's instinct kicks in and she knows exactly what she needs to do. If you observe wild dogs, you would notice that would often dig holes before they give birth. They do this to provide a warm place for the little puppies. I was surprised to see Pip digging a hole near her Kennel, I found it odd but then again, a mother knows best I guess.
I awoke to the cries of a pregnant mother in labor last night, there was nothing I could do to comfort her as I heard her screams. I wasn't the one giving birth but I was panicking. The pain of childbirth can't be compared to anything in this world.
You may have seen it in movies but that is still a stepped-down version of the real experience. When it was over, Pip was already a Mother.
Morning came and before my eyes were two healthy little puppies. Since it is her first time she won't give birth to many pups. The little things knew exactly where the breast milk would be, isn't the creator just wonderful? They wouldn't stop crying unless the breast is in their mouth, the funny thing is they are still yet to open their eyes.
Their cries remind me of baby Pip, she was so stubborn and would often cry when she wanted attention. She loved playing and was a biter, though she didn't bite to maim but to play. Seeing her grow from that little pup into a mother brings so much joy to my heart, I wish Harmony was alive to see this, I wonder what his reaction would be.
As @HappyBoy and I had discussed earlier in his article Rusty got a girlfriend, I mentioned my decision to name one of the pups Rusty. I haven't verified the sex of the little pups yet since they would not leave their mother's side, but I have found a name for both of them.
I will give them some weeks to enjoy their mother's attention before I begin their training exercise. I love training dogs, they are really intelligent creatures too.
I can tell she's happy to be a mother, she is giving them all the attention they need to grow and is also being even more aggressive to anyone (except me of course) who comes closer to protect her puppies.
No love is ever greater than a mother's love for her children. A big thank you to all the Mothers out there (inclusive of Pet owners, like @bmjc98 and her furbabies), you are doing to most.
Mothers are the best, I don't care what other people might think, we should celebrate Mother's day every day.
I will be off for now, I need to ensure she is comfortable and eats enough Carbohydrates with Vitamins to regain her strength and the blood she lost last night.
