"I" iz HERE!

Nike had 7 sons. The first was born at 8pm--a 1 pound, 2 oz boy, then 2 more, bicolors (twins!) at 9:15 and 9:30--both 15 ounces. At 10, another sable male--15 ounces. At 11:45, another sable male, 1 pound 2 ounces again.

But the last two got stuck. #6 was stillborn around 2:00; at 4:30, I felt a puppy head in the canal and decided to go to the ER vet. I got there at 5:05, saw a vet at 6 am. X-ray showed one very large pup in the canal, and we decide to try pitocin to see if that would move him far enough out the vet could help out. At 7, with much help from the vet, the last giant boy was born, and he was dead.

So, 5 boys is the final--3 sables and 2 bicolor "twins."

Now I am going to bed--Nike has already crashed in her box, nursing the babes.

I just took a couple pics, I'll upload them first, then off to bed.

Very pregnant, with Flint, on Saturday night....
