Four little babes. . . . three girls and only one brother. While Mamma Fabi is nestling in with her new packages, pups are growing, growing, growing.
And today, we had two little helpers to hold puppies. G and Bug were great help. Tender little hands and gentle touches. . . . these puppies were soakin' it up.
You'll notice there are five babes in this photo. This is an Oakley baby added to the Fabi Four.
This is a difficult thing for a breeder. . . . you see, it's not just days of squirming, soft, and lovable puppies. . . . .
Oakley went into labor and after many hours of what seemed like progress, only found us in the vet clinic for an emergency cesarean section. And what seemed like a routine surgery, ended with just one. little. girl. I have been heartbroken since.
After much prayer and thoughtfulness, I placed this little girl with Fabi's litter, making a new family of five kids. While I am pleased to share that Fabi accepted this wee one and called it her own, my heart was breaking to reveal to Oakley that her new baby would be raised by another. For those of you who wonder if dogs feel depression, I can tell you that they do. I am lost along with my Oakley. But this one puppy will thrive with siblings and develop as she should by living daily with them. Sometimes in life we make decisions we don't like to make, but we need to make. And so as I write this post, I am keeping my girlie company, assuring her it's going to be okay.
Life happens. With all species. In all circumstances.
I'm glad that I have a Father in heaven who watches over it all.
