At this writing it’s a little after 3:00 am. It’s not that we have insomnia yet! Ella has successfully whelped (birthed) 4 puppies. Ella is enjoying her ice cream to promote contractions, the puppy choir is singing nicely. Little ones are learning to nurse. Mom is having another contraction and about to deliver as I write. The human’s are having hot tea or coffee to help get us thru the late night / early morning. Puppy number 5 is on it’s way, so I have to get back to work helping Ella!! As always, check back frequently for updates and photo’s to follow!!
