Gaia is a mama !

Tuesday morning Gaia has given birth to 7 big fat puppies, 6 female and 1 male.

Because we recognized the signs that a delivery was about to start, Sylvia who came to help with the delivery, went to bed at 10 p.m. so she would be fit if Gaia was in labour during the night. At 11 p.m. Lianne woke her up because she thought it had started.

Gaia was laying on the floor and looked like she was having contractions. When Sylvia arrived we looked and baby Nr. 1 was already there, right behind Gaia. Just like that ! Only 10 minutes later puppy Nr. 2 was born and it looked like a speedy delivery.

All night long Gaia was in labour and at 1 p.m. the next day, puppy Nr. 7 was born, finally a male too. Poor Gaia ( and we) were exhausted but happy to see so many beautiful baby dogs.

Now Gaia is doing a wonderful job as a mum.
