Dyan, she was an owner-surrender at 7 weeks pregnant with the 15 puppies.  She was very skinny, too, so they couldn't have been feeding her enough to support her AND 15 puppies, too!  She gave birth the other day, at Hill's house, to 12 boys and 3 girls, except that one male pup didn't make it. Sad

She looks so much better now, under Hill's care, for just a week.

No no Dawn... Remember she was already NINE weeks pregnant and waited another week and three days to have them making this the LONGEST dog gestation EVAH!!! We're goiing for the Guinness baby!!  thud The previous owner e-mailed me last night to see how she was doing... I'm feeling kinda overtired and spiteful... I don't think I'm going to answer her emails... When it is out of the owners control, or something terrible happens I understand and I am usually very willing to keep them up dated and pass their e-mails on to the new owner so the new owner can update them if they choose... But this woman irritated me so bad I just can't muster up the energy to respond to her!!  huh?

And of course I'll post more pics Dyan! I took over 100 last night alone!! Going to do individual shots today... Here's one from last night, I'm always afraid I'm going to over pic you guys though...

I already love their momma very much as well! She is THE SWEETEST!!  luvsmile Dad is rumored to be a 106 pound Am Staff supposedly... But I am wondering how they could possibly know since mom was an outside dog (because she sheds) and they don't truly know when she was in heat as witnessed by the longest gestation evah!!!  Roll Eyes

I will respond to her for you Hill. Grin
The pups are so adorable.  I can see in the pics how you would fall in love with Giovanna.  She seems to be a good mom even though she is still young and she is beautiful.  Keep the pics coming.

7 weeks was my guess for how pregnant she was.  I'm assuming the lady didn't know squat!  Good grief.  Jasmine went through one heat cycle, before we could get her spayed.  It seemed pretty obvious to us, and none of us had ever been around a dog in heat before!

The pups already look bigger!  I don't think you could "over-pic" us!  LOL!

It's too early to tell what they are. They are in that "sausage-chub-look-a-like" phase.  Cheesy It will be fun to see them get older and figure out who got busy with mom behind the wood shed.  woof

Sorry guys!! Some days I don't know which way is UP!!! But it's all good!!! The beebs are starting to really walk and waddle!! They opened their eyes starting on Friday, and the last one opened his eyes on Sunday eve! G is a terrible mother and I now know why her last litter all died at 3 weeks of age...  thud
I had to bottle feed all 14 of them for awhile, but thankfully she is a little more willing to try the last few days...
We had an overnight house guest last night also... a one week old puggle mix puppy that was rejected by the mother thank goodness one of my co-workers took her home... I am BUSY!! But I got a cute pic I wanted to share! Smiley Anyways, here are a few cuties!

Thanks for the update!  That first one is a cutie!

She's a bad Mommy? Why won't she nurse them?

Gosh, the little Pez! So tiny!!

 huh? She rejected them slowly one by one and I was bottling and so I stopped feeding her canned food so that I could start drying her up... I think once she realized if she didn't nurse she didn't get the canned she figured may as well... (I was only feeding canned when she laid down to nurse because she was such a bad deliverer I didn't have high hopes for her to take good care of this brood!!)  huh?
She willingly laid down to nurse tonight and I only had to fully feed a few full meals and a few supplementals!!  }jumphappy{
