Cute little girl with one patch on her eye.

I nice group shot of all seven.

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.
