final tally

#1 girl - 10.5 oz
#2 boy "Taxi" (born in car on way back from 1st vet visit) - 11.5 oz.
#3 boy - 9.5 oz.
#4 boy - 9 oz.
#5, 6, 7 (c-section) - girl - 9 oz., girl - 8 oz., boy (mismark) 9 oz.

There were 3 others in there that didn't make it.

All puppies are/were brindle except one black boy who couldn't be revived.

Kayla is a wonderful, attentive mother. We tube fed this morning anyway just to help. All are sleeping including my buddy Kim Kiefer who I couldn't have done without. I don't think I could do this without any of you. Thanks to everyone for the emails and being available for phone calls to get reassurance about the right thing to do next. Thank you, thank you.

Congratulations, Le'o. It's always sad to lose any of the puppies, but 7 is a nice, manageable litter. I'm glad you got a couple more girls to make more people happy. Enjoy them and post lots of photos for us puppy-deprived blog readers.

I'm so sorry you guys all had such a hard time! So get lots of rest and get lots of puppy snuggles:)
And head scratches for the little mommy!

Sorry about the ones who didn't make it. Enjoy the others when you emerge from your sleep deprived state in a few weeks.

Like I said somewhere else this morning (email?), I'm so glad all is good now - how scary for you tho - and how AWESOME that Kim was able to be there for you the whole way through...
I, like others, can't wait to see the whole brood. I'm glad Kayla is enjoying her job as mama too! :)
*hug*

Kim sent me a pix message of the half-mask, but that only whetted my appetite! I must have checked this page 35 times today already. :)
