Surprise




For a week or so we had noticed my husband's chihuahua was gaining weight.  We thought she may be pregnant, but weren't sure.  She never got very big.  But, yesterday, she stayed in our room all day, and wouldn't come sit with any of us.  This was very surprising, because she loves being held and petted.



 Last night after we got in bed, she wanted to stay on the floor in a blanket, instead of sleeping with us.  I knew it must be time for her to have puppies.  She was breathing really heavy, and after about  an hour, I heard whimpering.  Of course, I had to get up and check on her.  She was trying to cut the cord, when I went over there.  



She ended up only having one puppy.  It's so tiny and cute!  They said she was in heat before they gave her to us, we had no idea she would end up having a puppy.  So far, Sugar is a really good mama.  She doesn't like it when we take the puppy away from her.  I guess this explains why she has been so snappy lately. She had already had one litter a few years ago, so she knows what she is doing.

Will you keep the pup as there is only 1 or will you re-home it? Your boys must be excited to have a puppy! It's so tiny!

Nancy M. said...

Narelle, We're going to keep it. I lost my chihuahua almost 2 years ago, so this one will be mine. The boys do love it, but the mama is so protective, she doesn't like them getting near him.
