Velma’s New Family

Doesn’t she look proud of herself!?!?  🙂

Velma delivered her second litter yesterday…or, rather, Dr. Mary Ann Haggerty delivered her second litter.  Velma had a c-section when she had her first litter (she never contracted) so we anticipated that she would need a c-section this time as well.  It’s a long story, but we decided that the best scenario would be for Velma and me to come down to the Portland area and deliver the litter at Lesley’s vet.  We made it through the night on Wednesday, although we had our doubts at times.  Then, at 10:30 yesterday morning, we went to the vet.  It was the first c-section that I had witnessed and it was fascinating to watch the puppies arrive, one after another.  Velma, a 13″ red & white beagle, became the dam of eight healthy, active tri-color puppies.  Mom and puppies are doing well.
