Thread: Momo's Pregnancy

  1. #1

    Default Momo's Pregnancy

    I made this thread for my girl so that everyone can follow her pregnancy.

    (Click the pictures to make them larger )

    This is Momo:


    And this is what she looks like now, one month along:


    This is the daddy, Kavik:




    She got pregnant at the very beginning of May, right before Kavik was scheduled to be castrated. She was originally going to be fixed with Kavik, but she went into heat a few days before and the vet didn't want to do it then.

    So in the end she's pregnant and due at the beginning of July. Isn't it exciting?

    Oh, and I also have some video of Kavik and my Labloodhound pup from before I had Momo. Check out this second channel of mine on YouTube to see the videos.

    Thats very very annoying about your vet. A female can be desexed while in heat, they prefer not too, but if she knew that there were an intact male and a full female were living in the same house, wouldn't she realise its a lot safer than, well, this happening...

    I know it seems exciting now, to have little puppies wandering around the house, but as someone who owns shelter dogs, and a stray(as I remember?), don't you realise how many unwanted dogs there are in the world. Im just saying, I don't like the thought of you calling a mistake litter 'exciting'.

    Go and get your male nuetered. Please.

    aussiemyf, I think she is making the best of her situation and the puppies will benefit from her asking questions here... I imagine she's had enough berating over an oopsie litter. Also she mentioned the male is already done.

    Gorgeous dogs, both of them, Kavik. The pups will be around before you know it. :X

    I think this is pretty rude for you to continuously tell me how bad it was that my crossbred shelter girl got pregnant. Especially since this was supposed to be a happy thread.

    I know it was bad, and a mistake, but currently the shelter has agreed to let her have the puppies, and they will reimburse me for my time and effort of raising them and giving them away.

    They are aware of this just as much as I am, and they don't berate me for it as you do even though they are well aware of how many unwanted dogs there are in this world.

    Sadly I wasn't able to watch them all the time because of my unpredictable work schedule, and I wasn't able to separate them because both of them are outside dogs. The shelter understood that, and I would appreciate it if you did as well.

    It happens, alright?

    Also, Kavik is already neutered, as I stated in my first post. Though, males remain fertile up to six months after being neutered, as I have read.

    Thanks. I'm really looking forward to see what their puppies look like since they are such beautiful dogs.

    Yeah, I understand that, and im going to help, and I wont lecture(as much as I want too) but she could at least act a bit sorry about the circumstances. I don't know, its just my opinion, but it doesn't seem right.

    ETA: Oh believe me, I know it happens. Im on the end of the injection before they close their eyes. I just take it incredibly serious. As I said, im here to help, but im not gonna make out like 'poor you'. Others will disagree, but IMO, theres always a preventative. For example, why bring a full dog into your house when you knew you had another full dog living in the same home. Just saying...
    I won't say anything more, you want this to be a 'happy thread' but the situation is not a 'happy' one to begin with.
    Sorry...

    That may be true, but I think it's pointless to give her flak about it now. S**t happens, you deal with it and you know better for next time. There's naught to be gained from lecturing or being rude; education is key. Believe me, I know about stray dogs, between working as a vet nurse and at a dog shelter full time. It's not pretty but it is reality. So let bygones be bygones, and offer Kavik your knowledge and resources so as to best equip her and not let this happen again.

    Sorry...
    Why should I act sorry when it won't change anything? I'm not out for people to say "Poor you". If I was I'd say something more like, "Oh my God, my dog is pregnant. I don't have the money to afford it. Please, someone help me. ". Am I doing that?

    No. I'm asking only for advice, and letting myself be happy for a pregnancy that's going to happen whether I like it or not.

    The reason I got Momo was because when I went to the shelter to turn in proof of Kavik's rabies vaccination I asked about what dogs were close to being put down. Momo had been an owner surrender (originally named Shasta) and had been there since November of last year. She was very sweet-tempered, and I thought she'd be a good female role model/mother for Bella, who at the time only had Kavik outdoors with her all the time. Plus, she favored (quite a bit) the dog that I had grown up with.

    She turned out to be just that--a good role model and mother for Bella--and her only flaw was that she has separation anxiety and cannot be left alone in the house by herself unless she has another dog or a human with her.

    And yes, I believe this is a very happy thread. New life should always be welcomed, whether convenient for the world or not. I'm not going to scorn the puppies and have nothing to do with them simply because the world has too many dogs in it already.

    Please just keep your opinion to yourself from now on. I would appreciate your advice, but I just don't want you continuing to put down my girl's pregnancy.

    I think some of the above comments would be more welcome on Dogzonline. Could we please stop viewing the conception of every cross-bred pup as a tragedy? I suppose purebred dogs are never pts. This sort of cr*p makes me reconsider my involvement in this forum.

    Kavik good luck with Momo's pregnancy and good on you for seeking advice. I hope people can try to be more constructive than some have so far.
