The pups eyes are open and they are starting to walk and play with eachother! They are starting to develop personalities! Tillie is doing absolutely amazing and is always wagging that tail when she is with her humans. She is eating lots of food daily and taking good care of all nine pups.
Look at the difference in just two weeks! They are overwhelming mama Tillie!

The puppies are all doing great and growing fast. They should be opening their eyes this week! Mom finally has the energy to wag her tail and she wags it the moment you walk in the room! Her personality is amazing and she is getting stronger each day. Even better, she is tending to her pups without a problem!

Today Tillie ate and drank the most she has since her delivery! She seems to feel a lot better. As for the pups. . . they love to eat and sleep! We also have two pups that eat better then the rest and are growing fast. For people that were wondering Tillie has 4 boys and 5 girls!
Since Tillie is so weak she needs 24 hour attention to assist with her puppies! Thanks to PetConnect and all of the volunteers we have had that care available 24-7 since the babies were born! Today the puppies are 4 days old and have had around the clock care. Without the volunteers this mom and her puppies would not have made it! THANKS SO MUCH!
10/10/11- Tillie's labor did not progress. After bringing her to the vet we found out that she had a broken pelvis and the pups would have had to take a 90 degree turn just to get out! Tillie had to undergo an emergency c-section which was another risk since she was already extremely dehydrated and weak from starvation. Post delivery Tillie was weak and having difficulty moving around. The pups were acting as a splint for her pelvis and now her pelvis was unstable. After getting her settled back into her foster home she was just weak and uncomfortable. So it was up to us to keep those pups alive! She had 3 black, 4 brown and 2 yellow pups! A total of 9 pups!!!
