Our Dog Scarlet

Scarlet has left behind 2 beautiful puppies, a girl and a boy.  The girl was born 4 days after the boy and she was tiny.  Well, now, she about 3 times his size.  They are being bottle fed and keeping us all busy.  Scarlet delivered a total of 10 puppies and I am not sure what we would do if we had to feed 10 of them.  Keeping up with 2 is enough.

Scarlet had a very tough time with all of the deliveries but then something terrible happened.  She had fluid build up in her abdomen such that she could hardly breath.  They did surgery on her and she came home to lay on our kitchen floor.  The vet came every day to give her a couple of drips.  The fluid built up all over again and she would not eat, drink or even pick her head up.  We all tried and Scarlet tried but she just could not pull it out.  We miss her a lot as she was a wonderful companion but we are thankful for the short 14 months we had with her and for her 2 beautiful, now spoiled, house puppies.
