Of Love and Loss

Pup #7.
Pearl with pup #1.

Wow, what a day!!!  It's definitely been a roller coaster and I'm exhausted.  On my calendar for this very day, it reads "Pearl due."  Well, Pearl did have pups.  Twelve total, but only seven have survived.  I gave mouth to mouth to three to see if I could save them to no avail.  The other two we knew right away that they were gone.  I'm so thankful for the seven survivors, five girls and two boys!  All sweet, wriggly, and beautiful.  It has been a day of ups and downs.  The life of a farmer is never easy.
