Meliora!

๐ŸŽ‰ They are here! Welcome little Meliora of YuNi! ๐ŸŽ‰

In the evening of January 9th Yu's temperature started dropping below 37ยฐC. Things were starting to happen! No noticeable changes throughout the day and then at 18:30 Yu started panting and having contractions. Go time!


At 19:46 she had her first puppy. A big, 343g male. Welcome, Mr. Red! ๐Ÿ’–

11 minutes later, at 19:57 came his 1st sister, weighing in at 324g. Welcome, Miss Orange! ๐Ÿงก

And just as I had Miss O dried up, at 20.01 came another girl! The smallest girl at 280g. Welcome, Miss Yellow! ๐Ÿ’›

I thought we're going to have a bit of a break so Yu can rest, but no! ๐Ÿ˜… Just 10 minutes later, at 20:11, out came a 310g boy. Welcome, Mr. Green! ๐Ÿ’š

Finally, Yu got a bit of a break and could focus more on her new offspring. The next puppy came at 20:38 and it was another boy, weighing 280g. Welcome, Mr. Turequois! ๐Ÿ’™

Then she had her longest break between puppies with the next one coming at 21:18. A nice, dark, 311g female. Welcome, Miss Blue! ๐Ÿ’™

And then at 21:38 came the 7th puppy. Another girl and the biggest puppy with her 361g. Welcome, Miss Purple! ๐Ÿ’œ

Since we saw 7 puppies on Yu's first ultrasound we thought we were done. And it looked that way. But then a half-hour later, Yu's contractions started yet again and at 22:11, less than 2,5h after the first puppy was born, here was our final puppy. A small, 255g boy! He needed a bit more stimulation to get him going and suckling but soon he was up and looking for food. Welcome, Mr. Beige! ๐ŸคŽ

So here they are, our wonderful 8 little red puppies. ๐Ÿฅฐ And one very proud and excellent mom! Yu is taking her role very seriously and is a great mom. All puppies are fine and growing and we're looking forward to the next 8-9 weeks with them.

An excellent start to 2022 indeed!
