What an exciting day we had yesterday, everything happened in the evening. We suspected that Mollie, our dear Miniature Dachshund, was going into labour. Her due date was Thursday, but we were expecting them between Tuesday (yesterday) and Saturday. The first hint was a complete lack of interest in her food and water and then it was obvious that she was very restless and just couldn't get comfortable (poor thing).
Adam had planned to come round after work (it's his last week living on his own before his lovely g/friend moves in with him, but that's another story) so I was cooking a lovely big roast joint for us all. Andy left to pick Adam up from work and I was just sorting out the last few things for the dinner so I could have it ready for them on their return, when Imogen came to tell me about Mollie having 'stuff' falling out... hmmm!
Four tiny bits of 'stuff' fell out! They are all appear strong and healthy, moving around with gusto and crying when their mother plonks herself on them!
|Stolen my heart already!|
|Mollie looks like she's going to eat one here!|
Are they not the cutest things ever! All 4 appear to have a shiny black coat like daddy (our tiny Chihuahua) and are bigger than I expected, though still tiny little Chiweenies. Thank goodness all went smoothly and mum and puppies are doing well.
The evening was spent relaxing with each other and some homemade banana and walnut cake.
