logo Fourth Litter

Born: July 12, 2007
Simon & Aurora



We took Aurora to New York for a planned breeding and returned home to await the blessed event. At the appointed time we went to the vet and the sonogram indicated "nobody home" About a month later Aurora began to act very motherly, but she had not increased in weight or size, however not taking a chance Kathy brought her up in the living room. When Aurora indicated she wanted to go out, Kathy put her on a flex lead and took her out to potty. When she assumed the "poop" pose, out dropped a puppy. The regular procedures were followed and it appeared that Aurora had a singleton. However two days later her temperature spiked and an quick trip was made to the vet. Apparently on other puppy remained in the forward node of the uterus and had not moved. Its death turned Aurora septic and an emergency spay was performed.

The puppy would not nurse so a regiment of tube feeding was undertaken. At three days, when dew claws and tails are normally removed, the pup was struggling and so the decision was made not to shock her system and the tail remains.

Given the fact she was a singleton and what she cost, we named her Penny (cf: the 40's Blondie movies)
