My parents decided to take Peppa to the vets to get checked over as they were worried that she was struggling birthing too much, and the vets reassured them that she was fine throughout her labour and she wouldn't have any difficulties. I went back to bed whilst they were at the vets and ended up feeling worse when I woke up when they come back home. A little while later I was sat in my parents bedroom watching Peppa when I noticed another puppy was on the way, I called my parents back into the bedroom and after a difficult birth she gave birth and once again didn't break the sac so the sac was broken, the chord was cut and we noticed that the puppy wasn't moving...after trying to clear it's airways, and trying to resuscitate it there was nothing we could do.. the puppy had become stressed during birth and poo'd in the sac and wasn't alive when it come out... very sad that we lost a beautiful little girl puppy.
The final puppy was a little girl who was born at 12pm, she's a little cutie and once again had to have the sac removed and chord cut but Peppa knew more what to do this time around. The little girl is a beautiful chocolate brown and she's a little bit bigger than her brother and very greedy. The two surviving pups went to the vets today along with Peppa and they're perfectly healthy and doing great, I can't wait to see them grow up and play and all that good stuff. I love them.
I told my mum throughout Peppas pregnancy that I didn't want to watch her give birth because I wouldn't be able to stomach it but but when you're there in the moment and thinking of the lives of the puppies you completely forget about all the grossness and think about the well being of the mother and pups. It was certainly an experience I won't forget. It's been difficult for our family as we lost one of the puppies but we were warned that this can be quite common with chihuahua birthing, we just didn't think it would ever happen to us and we're all heart broken that the little one didn't get a chance at life.
