So much has happened in the past month, and I’ve been so busy I haven’t been able to write it all down. But I wanted to take a moment and write about what happened over the weekend . . .
The long and short of it is that Scout had her puppies; ten to be exact. Ten Great Dane Puppies: now there’s a happy thought. They’re all brindle, 8 female, and 2 male.
The long story is Scout had the first one on Friday at about five in the evening. She then went two hours before having another (Wyatt and I were just about panicked!) Then came two more in about ten minutes of each other. Then she went another three and a half hours before having the fourth (We thought we were done at three). Another hour before number five came along and then I went to bed.
Wyatt came in a few times during the night as each new puppy was born, finishing off at 8. He came to bed at 7:00 a.m. convinced she was done at eight puppies. But when I got up at 9:30 (yes, I slept in!) there were nine, and by 10:00 a.m. she had her last one . . . TEN PUPPIES!! It was a pretty exciting weekend.
