Yesterday afternoon I became concerned about Leeloo. She was listless, had a higher temperature than normal, had some body trembles and mid-afternoon started to ignore the puppies. Off to the vet for a check up - after spending a small fortune she is on anti-biotics for a possible retained placenta - thankfully that is all it is, if it were a retained puppy we would be looking at a whole other ball game. It's important to know your bitch, sure she is not herself anyway because she has a whole new family to take care of, but knowing the difference between relaxed and listless was a big tip off. Today she is a contented mother and everyone is thriving as evidenced by the two following photos. This one is from Wednesday afternoon - all the little darlings in their whelping box.
