Finally around 3AM she started having contractions every 15 minutes. She wanted out so I took her back to the goat pen and put her in the stall where she delivered last year. That lasted about an hour. Then she came inside and rested where I had fixed a spot for her to have the puppies. That lasted a few minutes and she managed to dart out the door when William opened it. We searched and found her underneath a pile of lumber. I finally decided if that is where she wanted to have her puppies then leave her be. 30 minutes later she was barking at the back door and William let her in. I was sitting on the sofa when she came running in and jumped up beside me. She laid her head on my lap and looked up with her big brown eyes. I told her she finally realized she wanted her mommy. Before I could get up to help her to the birthing spot. She had a puppy on the sofa!
I won't say Bella is done as I thought that an hour ago when she and the puppies took a nap. I cleaned up the birthing area and just got them all settled back down when the 5th little boy popped out.
P.S. The little girl already has a home when she is old enough. Her new family are going to call her Snow. Snow will be moving to Lexington, NC in 6 weeks.
Make that 6 boys and a girl. Time to change the bedding again. Guess labor and delivery isn't closed after all. Another update>>>> 7 boys and 1 girl. Wonder if labor/delivery nurses get overtime.
