    mummacassie I think I love you!!! I mean I love the way you think and the responsibility you are showing here!

    You just vent and cry all you like (but do try to get some sleep, she is safe with the vet).

    All fingers,toes, & paws here are crossed that in a day or two, she will become maternal - hand rearing bubbas is not an easy task.

    I hope all is ok... Its not unusual for the bitches to ignore the pups while in labour... she will tend to them once they are all there together... you are doing a great job... keep asking for help.... If you need anything at all please ask, I may be able to help... and yes please consider having the pups desexed either before they leave you, or under contact with the new owners to make sure they are done by 6 months of age... Charge them a fee above your asking price of aprox $200 with the understanding they get that back when they produce desexing certificates...

    I don't know where to go or who to turn to. It's all my fault, I failed.

    I'm home alone at the moment and my mind is running away from me.
    At some time after 3pm our baby will grow angel wings and part of my heart will be missing forever but I know where it will be. It will be somewhere miles away where I can't see it, hear it or touch it.

    Mum is doing horrible, her body wasn't meant to be made for babies.

    I'm full of hate and heartache. I hate her previous owner, I never say hate because it's a very powerful word. But I hate them they have done this to her, they gave her a death sentance that I can't fix.

    My whole family (except son & partner) live 16 hours away and this little girl showed me love, she showed me we weren't alone. She become our only family here and now we have to say goodbye because of some careless owner. I don't have the money to fix her and her 5% survival rate isn't enough for the vet to warant an account. I wanted to put my honeymoon on her, I was going to sacifice anything we had to save her but my partner said she wouldn't want us to not have a holiday after years of saving for it. She wouldn't want to see my heart breaking and the constant stream of tears. He's making us be selfish. He reminded me of the pact we made when we decided on getting married and having our first holiday ever away without our son. We both said no matter what happened while we were away we didn't want to know and we wanted to enjoy our selves after saving for 5 years. It didn't matter if it was grandparents, parents, siblings or animals. We were going to enjoy it. Easier said than done now.

    I don't know how to cope with these 3 little babies, I don't know what to do anymore.
    I have lost my best friend. I know I sound like an absolute nut job but the truth is she stole my heart the second I saw her. Her eyes were so full of love. Love I wanted to receive and give to and from her. She was the only one here who wouldn't judge me for what I said or done. She would just listen and give licks when I needed to know I wasn't alone.

    I've only ever put one dog to sleep and she was 10 and a rottweiler who had cancer. She needed to be at peace. An 18month (or there abouts) shouldn't be going to sleep she should be here enjoying her babies. She should be looking forward to her babies leaving and her having a beautiful life growing up with my son.
    How do I tell my 4 year old she's died? How do I explain that she's gone to heaven to be an angel watching over us all the time? I'm not ready to talk about death with him. He's a very lucky child who still has all his great grandparents and grand parents. Death has never come up before I don't know what to say to him.

    I'm sorry baby I've tried for you, I tried for everything but maybe it just wasn't enough. maybe I should have forced Daddy to give up our honeymoon to save you. Maybe I should have gone and taken out a loan that we probably can't afford, but it would be worth it to have you by my side even if it was for 1 more day.
    Maybe I shouldn't be a pet owner if I can't afford to save them. This is my fault maybe I should have given her to someone else, maybe I should have let her get put down and she wouldn't of had to go through the agony that she's been through. I'm trying to stay a little positive and realise at least we have her babies but they need their Mum.

    So this has turned into the worst day of my life. I don't know how else to describe it. Should I put my honeymoon on it? We have a few hours to make a decision, by then it might be too late but at least we can still try. How much money do you spend because you should give up? I don't know if there is a figure.

    I'm sorry baby, I tried I really did. I'm sorry.
    Now her bed will forever lie empty because she isn't coming home.

    What is the bitch's diagnoses? I don't understand.

    At this point, due to your inexperience with nursing puppies, I would suggest you contact a rescue in your area to take them on regardless of what happens to the bitch.

    She has a trapped puppy so a c-section is needed but she's also twisted her stomach around or organs around whilst straining to give birth. I'm sure they said because she has been in active labour for over 24hrs and she's been pushing since 2pm yesterday her body has given up. Basically her insides are a wreck and haven't taken well to birthing. They wanted to be able to fix her insides at the same time as the c-section but they don't want her to be under for hours either so it's one of those catches. So it's kind of a you do the $3,000 surgery and have a 95% chance we'll never see her again or we let her grow her angel wings.
    I can't answer alot because I went into shut down mode and almost fainted at the vets when I was talking to them.

    I have had my partner at work calling the vet then calling me but nothing is sinking in at all. So he started to call my Mum and let her know so that he isn't trying to digest all this information on his own.

    Just angry with the world at the moment. Angry at the vets because her survival rate isn't good enough for an account. I thought they were meant to help all animals great or small. But maybe it's just be being angry. I don't like to be angry I try to find a positive out of everything but this I don't know what the positive is. Maybe it was that she was in our lives and to become an angel so we never walk alone.

    I'm just a jumble that isn't making any sense in my head at the moment.

    ARGH!! Taking my everything not to go bash down the neighbours door.

    Where abouts are you located? (no need for specifics, just region and state will do).

    I am so sorry to hear this. By now, you would have already made your decision anyway.

    It sounds as though there is practically no chance that she will survive, personally I would go with whatever the vet recommended if I trusted that vet, in most cases you can arrange for credit terms with the vet so that you can pay them back in instalments.

    I agree with Anne regarding the surviving puppies - hand rearing puppies is a huge job, please try to find a local rescue to surrender them to, or if you are very lucky, your vet may know of another bitch who has just had babies who may be able to foster them.

    RIP little darling - yet another example of why you should desex your dogs (not preaching at you, mummacassie, I know you would have speyed her if she had been yours from tiny)
