It is now 1 pm CST. Sept 3rd. Shelby had her last live puppy at 11:30 am. We lost one little boy, who was born dead about 11:45 am. She has been having 2 at a time every 2 to 3 hours. Unsure if there will be any more. Mommy got to Sandra's right after the 6th pup was born and then the 7th was born without his sack around his tiny body. He was much smaller than the others. Mommy had never seen a puppy being born much less a dead one. She is still crying.....

Shelby is such a good mother, she tried and tried to lick him alive but nothing worked.
We have to leave now for the country but Sandra will keep us updated and this evening I will beg Aunt Mary to let us use her computer.

Please say a prayer for Shelby's little lost boy but Mommy says shem bets Samantha is taking care of him at the bridge right now.
PS....there are not 3 
                                                                  solid black puppies !!!

Oh MONA such a happy day for you and Sandra. Sorry about the one lost pup... butt so many others are healthy!!

You may not have heard this, butt our sweet furend Miss Molly went over the bridge this morning. I will give %50.00 to you for Shelby's fund if you will choose a little girl and name it Molly in honor of our lost furend.
I know you will have to talk this over with Sandra. Let me Know.
I am also willing to give you ANOTHER $50.00 if you will name one of the other girls Pattie Cake .
AND... I will give you another $50.00 if you will name one of the boys... Baron.
I guess you could say I am buying Naming Rights.
NOW... If ANYONE OUT THERE WOULD LIKE TO ... OUT BID ME ... on any of the three... that would be WONDERFUL.

Yes...we need great news like the 6 live puppies to cheer us up as a bloggy furiend Ms. Molly passed away this am. I am sure Molly is taking care of the lil' boy too. Blessing abound for Ms. Shelby and I hope she is finished as I think 6 puppies are ample pample as she is still a recovering baby herself.
Much loves and licks,
The Slimmer Mamas and The Slimmer Puggums

JD and Max said...

We are full of joy at the 6 puppies that are doing so well. It is sad about the little boy pup that was lost but as has wisely been pointed out sometimes this happens in life. It makes it no less sad, but we're sure little Miss Molly is playing with a new little puppy up at the Rainbow Bridge right now! Shelby is a great mom - how wonderful!

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

What a lot of news we came home to, today. I'm sure that the little boy just went to be with Molly. Everything seems so connected. I'm happy that six of the puppies are doing so well and when there's been a little time to get over Molly's passing somewhat. It was a lot to absorb all at once.

lotsa licks, LOla

Sagira said...

Wow, those look like some big and healthy puppies. So sorry to hear about the boy puppy. So sad. :(

Blogless Dog's Mom said...

Thank you for sharing the pictures and updates on Shelby. I'm sorry to hear about the one puppy that didn't make it. :( After all poor Shelby has been through, it's a miracle that the other 6 look healthy. I hate to think what would have happened if yall had not taken sweet Shelby under your wing.

We are saying purrs for Shelby's lost boy and we will light a candle for him too.

We thinks it is a miracle she had 6 puppies that were born alive with all she has been through. And we can tell from the pictures that she is a wonderful Mommy, and her babies are so cute.
