We're Having Puppies
This was poor Cotton this afternoon. She let me get one picture, then she went under the porch and wouldn't come out until I went into the house and put away the camera.
About 8 PM she started having pups... well, actually, she had one at 5, but that's a story for another day. She really got down to business at 8 and has 6 pups so far. Like most first time mamas... and it doesn't matter how old they are when they have their first litter... she's rather confused and a little frightened. She doesn't like their crying and they move! The last pup she actually gave a few licks and didn't run away from it, so I think it's starting to sink in.
It's going to be a L O N G night. Don't anyone call me in the morning!
