Cute little girl with one patch on her eye.

Her first pup born.

Lola did a great job. I was all worried that the puppies heads would be too big. Bulldogs usually have to have c-section because of this. I had gotten a x-ray one week before to see how big they were and if we should even try doing it naturally. Her x-ray of the pelvis showed that it was a nice size and that the puppies heads so far would fit threw just fine. I set up an appointment anyways just in case though. On Friday she started having labor contractions at 6:00 a.m. that I noticed any ways. She did her nesting for about 8 hours in which time I got nothing done all day cause she wanted me to be by her the whole time. She finally had the first one after a little pushing and he came out feet first which isn't ideal but he didn't get stuck so I decided to let her have the rest. On the x-ray it showed five heads that I counted and three that the vet said for sure. Lola did a great job and had six girls and one boy. She is very good with the puppies and cautious about where she lays and making sure all her puppies are nice and warm. I was just so glad to have her be able to have her have the puppies naturally and not have to go threw a surgery. The puppies will be ready to go middle to the end of August and they are beautiful papered English bulldogs. If you know of anyone that would like one let me know they make great family dogs.

Lola's week

Lola has been in heat. Since she had a false pregnancy last time I decided to have the AI done surgically. This can only be done with certian vets and the one that is close is two hours away. I had to get a blood test a week in to it to tell when would be the best time to bred her. The test came back so I had an appointment set up for May 2nd. I of course had to work and couldn't find anyone to work for me. My wonderful dad took her down to the Sandy vet and I went and picked her up after work. She was still walking like she was drunk but by the time we got home she was doing better. She won't get the staples removed for 14 days and in that time I am suppose to keep her from doing activiy. Ya right she is being difficult so when we go outside she has to be on a leash and I have to keep reminding her not to run. She is still on some pain meds and she be finished in a week. I am just hoping that this worked and that she is pregnant.
