She'd been a mother for awhile, but today she found out.
We aren't the first (or the last) to be awed by maternal instincts kicking in. But I can't keep from telling you - it was amazing! Through the night she just thought she needed a bathroom break--every ten or twenty minutes. It was a long night for all of us.
Nearly a minute after the first puppy came out, Mabel noticed it and then the licking started. It hasn't stopped.
We hear about shelters "running out" of dogs throughout the US. Mama Mabel and these 9 puppies will be available for adoption late May/early June. Apply at https://www.pawswapofgreaterlafayette.com/adopting.html Welcome work/life balance and a healthier body, mind and spirit with pets!
