PUPPIES R' US!

What an experience we will never forget! This all just happened. 2:30 a.m.!

We knew Mocha was due to have her babies any day now. We would literally see the puppies moving in her tummy, and according to everything I read, that meant she was at the end of her pregnancy.

Tonight, she was acting restless, she was whining, she didn't know what she wanted, and she couldn't sit still. But, the place she wanted to be was under my daughter's bed. We set all the blankets underneath so she'd have a place to have her litter.

Around 1am, my daughter opens my door and says, "Mocha had puppies!" This is the first one we saw! I was in awe!! It was so unreal!

She was still so restless after having this one, and we had no clue what she was doing. About twenty minutes later, we see a light brown puppy! She had already cleaned it up.  And then another few minutes goes by, and out pops another one!

We assumed she was all done, but then, POP...a black one comes out, too! You can see that she's not done cleaning this one up.

And much to our surprise, she HAS ANOTHER ONE!!! See him down below with the white stripe? Wow! All this time too, Mocha isn't making any noises. She's a tough mama!

But, she's not done!!! She has another black one!! Amazing!

And finally..she's done. She's worn out. All her babies are snuggled under her belly. I don't know why I stressed over it. She did fine, and her doggy instincts were in full force!

Alicia, that last picture is SOO darn cute, I might want that for my screensaver - seriously! Look at the look on Mocha's face...so content. I wish you would've had time to give her an epidural but you can't plan everything. LOL!! What a great experience for all of you to share ~

Oh my goodness they are ADORABLE!!!! The one with the stripe is soooo cute.

It must have been such an amazing sight to see. They make it seem so effortless! The wonders of God and all He has created can't be brought or replicated anywhere else. Love it!

Btw, what are you planning on doing with the puppies? I may have missed the post but are you keeping all of them?
