Omeeka's pups arrived last night, five male and three female black lab / golden retriever cross. Omeeka is so happy to have these BIG puppies in the whelping pool rather than her belly. She even has room to eat and is chowing down this morning. All the puppies are strong and nursing well. Lucky for me, once again, Omeeka's pups are on the quiet side, only crying if they are not close enough to mom!

Everything is ready, linoleum is on the floor, whelping pool is clean, newspapers are unfolded and ready to line the pool, and best of all, Cindy is almost home. Once she arrives and gets some rest, Omeeka can get the puppies out!
Omeeka follows me everywhere I go in the house and backyard. She has lost her appetite, I think because her belly is fully of babies! When she does squeeze in some food, it is always followed by some BIG burps. Maybe she has heartburn?? Hard to say.
Jay has turned on the pool's solar heat so when little O is ready to swim, the water won't be too cold. Oh, yep, she's already been in the pool, but so far we've been able to keep her from diving in. We let her swim for a minute or two and then dry her off. She would like to do more but is a good sport about getting out.
Omeeka is such a nice girl, we love to have her here.

Yes, little Olina (Zorba x Omeeka - July 2009) is a mini me of her mom Omeeka. We are enjoying a visit with her while mom Cindy is traveling the world! Omeeka is hanging out with mom Valle and buddy Cara. X-ray will be March 22nd, 6:00 p.m.
