Guess Who Had Babies?
That's right, Buttercup! She delivered four pups on Friday. Talk about surprised. I knew there was a possibility that she could be pregnant, but she really didn't get big. I don't know how she had four pups inside. So imagine this. I'm working on the computer, and Buttercup starts running around. I get up to see if she has to go to the bathroom. She goes outside, but comes right back in. She's still acting a little strange. I pick her up and put her in my lap. As we are sitting there, I can tell something is just not right. At this point I'm thinking she must be in labor. How do I know this? I had just watched a YouTube video two days prior about a dog giving birth. Thank goodness for YouTube!
Fifteen minutes later, the first pup (black and white) was born. I won't go into any more details about this ordeal. Just know that it was an ordeal and I was stressed waaaayy out. All is well now. Buttercup is being a great mommy. Believe it or not, I think all of the puppies are already spoken for. Of course that will remain to be seen after their 8 weeks with mommy. I just hope I don't fall in love with any of them.
