" Larry, Moe and Curly "

WOW ! What a day! Swiftwater Farm had three new
additions yesterday, Larry, Moe and Curly!
This is a picture of Mom Sadie and her boys I took
this morning at "breakfast"!

Larry was first and was breach, which cause a little excitement!

Moe however just popped right out !

Sadie however decided a 4 hour break was in order before
allowing little Curly to enter the world! He has a tiny hair lip
on the top left side! :( The Vet said it may fill out!

He is a Jake mini-me !!

After the three boys got here Mom was a picture of exhaustion!

They started nursing right away! YEAH!

Then took a nap under Mom's chin!

I snapped this while Mom partook of a much needed meal

This one also...............

Mommy's back on guard! Jake just has to look and she
starts growling ! Poor Daddy Jake has lost his buddy!

Show off your babies Sadie Boo !

At 10:30 PM Sadie had a stillborn girl. It appeared to have
had a deformity where the brain formed outside the skull!
I had a good cry and vowed , NO more pups! They will both
get surgery in due time!
I'll be canning and freezing veggies all day, what I had planned
yesterday before I had to play doctor. Of course I'll be taking
frequent Peeks at the Peeks ! :D

Holy puppies !! too, too sweet. Are you keeping tout la Gang. Wink. What a crew.

And I agree with B. Shamu - you are gonna LOVE, love that chili sauce - the absolute best condiment I've ever had/made. Can't wait to hear how it turns out !

Craig Glenn said...

Thanks for the puppy update! They are beautiful! Good job Sadie...


Carol Murdock said...

Susan...Curly has most likely found a permanent home! :D
The other two will go to family members!
I can't wait to see how the Fruit/Chili sauce turns out myself!
I'll update you!

Craig...your welcome, hope you will watch their progress over the next 8 weeks! Sadie did do a good job and is making an excellent Mom!

Rosaria Williams said...

I have never seen pups being born. It takes a couple of days? Poor mother!

Reader Wil said...

Once again congratulations, Carol. How wonderful to have brought these puppies into the world! You must have been very tired. Thanks for sharing this event with us.

Elizabeth McCrindle said...

They are adorable I love them all....just as well there's so much water between us lol. So sad about her little girl but she's got three healthy boys. Wel done Sadie and off course the mid wife :)

What an adventure. Life is so beautiful. Enjoy your puppies.

Renie Burghardt said...

Awww, too precious for words, Carol! And Sadie has an expression of relief! Glad they are nursing and doing great, and will have good homes. Sad about the little girl, but it wasn't meant to be.

Enjoy your adorable new furry grands!

Huggies and cool breezes!

So veey sweet

crochet lady said...

Oh, I would have cried about the girl puppy too, how sad.

Sherry Austin said...

You're a good dog mama, Biscuit!

A Brit in Tennessee said...

They all look very sweet and content. Mama is a good one, your lucky....once I had a mama dog to try and bury her newborn pups, and another Yorkie of mine took them on and raised them together with her own six. She had twelve pups nursing on her.
I miss having puppies around, do you plan on keeping them all ?

Elenka said...

WOW...what a day !!! I love that first pic of mom and the babes...she looks like she's asking,' what the heck have I gotten myself into !?'
Sorry about the lost one....

Glynis Peters said...

Congratulations! Well done Dr Carol :)

Carol Murdock said...

Rosaria...she had the 1st one at 11:00 Am ,the 2nd one at 12:30 PM ,
the 3rd, came at 3:30 PM and the $th at 10:30 PM. She started in labor around 7:oo AM so that was
13 1/2 hours all total! are welcome, thanks for coming by to see them! Yes, I was exhausted too after sitting on a pillow on the floor in front of her box all day!

Elizabeth ...thanks! Maybe you'll use them as models in a few weeks! :D

Carolyn...yes it is!

Carol Murdock said...

Renie...thanks sweetie, we will!
Sadie is relieved to have it over!

DP..yes, they are!

Jen...It was so sad as we hoped all day for at least one girl! :(

Trixie...thanks honey, I try, they are my dog children and grandogs!

Carol Murdock said...

Jo....she is the best little Mommy!
No, we may keep Curly,as he has a cute litte defect!

Elenka...she has been very FROSTY to Jake, so you are probably right about what she was thinking! HA!

Glynis...the Dr. is proud of her job but prouder of Sadie!

NitWit1 said...

A houseful of boys! It will be bundles of energy as they grow!!!

Sharon Rose said...

Oh Carol, How precious! Sweet little Sadie looks like a tired but fulfilled Mommy. I am so sorry she lost a girl! Honey, I cried right here reading it.
Well, Ms. Daisy might just have to come along and congratulate this family! How lovely they are!

Carol Murdock said...

NitWit....hiked legs everywhere! HA! :D

Pastor Sharon.... :(

Larry, Moe, Curly and Mom Sadie are just beautiful!
So sorry about the baby girl.

I should be canning and freezing green beans right this minute. This heat and humidity are making it all a tad hard on picking it though.

Good luck the new family and on the canning/freezing.
Have a great day.

Vicki Lane said...

Wonderful names for the boys!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi, it's Daisy. . . quick before my Mom catches me, congratulations. . . I left a press release at my place, from my computer on Mom's blog!
Congratulations to all! Those boys are adorable. I can't wait to play with em!

Robyn Kadis said...

Oh how sad to lose one like that... it breaks my heart but thank the Lord the others look great. Have fun!

Carol Murdock said...

Pam....thank you so much!

Vicki....I thought you'd like the three stooges theme! Curly has a little curled up mouth so we had to think of something to go with that!We first said Elvis, but we like the stooges so they won.
Of course they'll get new names at their new homes!

Carol Murdock said...

Pastor Sharon...thanks!

Robyn & Adel...thank you for stopping by!

One Nurse said...

What sweet puppies!!! Congrats to you and Jake and Sadie! Sorry about the little girl! How sad!

Deb Shucka said...

Congrats to all. Sooooo cute! What a great experience. I've only ever helped cats (who need no help) and cows (who often need big help). Sorry about the girl - that must have been hard for both mom and midwife.

Betsy Banks Adams said...

Oh Carol, How emotional that entire day/evening must have been for you... Sorry about the girl--but it looks like three healthy boys. Congrats to Sadie... Hope Daddy can see his sons soon!!!!

Get some sleep tonight.

Janet, said...

they are so sweet. Sorry about the little girl pup. Have fun and enjoy the little ones.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

They are so tiny and cute! it's sad about the female who was deformed, but she is lucky to have three healthy boys who will grow strong.

Hope the weather cools down a little for you so you can all the canning done!

Kat Mortensen said...

Okay, I'll forgive you. Those are the perfect names. Ha ha. Three Stooges - what a great idea! They are so sweet.


Carol Murdock said...

Nurse...Thank you and glad you stopped by!

Deb...thanks! Yes is was ruff going for awhile! We really wanted at least one girl!

Betsy... thanks! She doesn't care if I hold them and show Jake but she does NOT want him near the box!
He's kinda of afaird because they whimper!

Janet...I can't quit looking at them! I plan to keep Curly and it will be hard to give up the other two!

Pat..thanks! I'm canning right now, just took a break!

Kat...that girl was already named Poetikat! :(
She was exactly like Moe!

Eggs In My Pocket said...

The puppies are so sweet! It is so hard to have something go wrong with our pets......but so glad at least 3 are ok and including the mom. Just loved visiting here, thank you for stopping by my blog! I read your profile and we have so much in common when it comes to the writing area. blessings,Kathleen

Roslyn said...

It's a bit challenging, playing vet! Many years ago our Dalmation had eleven pups & they came so fast I had to break the sacs & get them breathing[stroking their little tummies]. They all survived!

Sarah Sullivan said...

Awwww they are soooo cute!! Congratulations!! Sarah

Kathryn Magendie said...

awwwww So Cute! Sad about the little one who didn't make it though - poor little thing.

Been SO long since I smelled puppy breath and rubbed fat puppy tummies!

Carol Murdock said...

Kathleen....thanks for coming by and yes, we do!

Sarah...thanks for the visit!

Roslyn....yes it was a callenge! Thanks for stopping by!

Kat...come visit and you can smeel puppy breath and rub bellys! HA!

Midlife Roadtripper said...

I remember when our dog had puppies - 8 of them. Such excitement. I had forgotten how they looked. And how exhausted the poor momdog gets. Hope she gets some good sleep. You, too.

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Oh my gosh!! Larry, Moe and Curly are adorable. What excitement for you. I'm not sure I could have done it without assistance! Congratulations to all! Well done!

Kay said...

Congrats on the lovely little additions to the family!! What a clever girl!!xx

Merisi said...

Congratulations on these bundles of joy, Carol!

The little girl was spared a lot of suffering. I am sure there are dogs in heaven too.

Isabel said...

What a MIRACLE day! They are LOVELY! Sorry about the little girl lost :(

Cindy said...

Becca's Dirt said...

I'm so glad that Mommie and babies are doing well. Too bad one didn't make it. Three males - wow. They are really pretty pups and momma looks so tired.
