Macey's puppies

One of my friends decided to breed their little dog to help pay some unexpected expenses. Since I have bred animals in the past I volunteered to help if needed.

The day came around and the darling dog went into labor. I kept the nervous owners calm until it was obvious something wasn’t right. After consulting with the local vet we took the little mama in.

The vet wanted to help the dog deliver but his fingers were too large for the tiny animal. I volunteered and ended up with a crash course on birthin’ puppies the hard way.

Long story short I helped deliver 8 tiny little puppies for the anxious owners who are happy that their mama is recovering. I feel rather honored at the fact that I helped bring these babies into the world.

Have you ever grown from the experience of helping a friend? Please share your stories in the comments below.

    What an amazing experience. Years ago I helped deliver a foal and never saw birth the same way again.

    Dear Melissa,

    Katie doesn’t leave the home now except to go to the doctor. Unfortunately she has also been diagnosed with allergies to both dogs and cats so I’m keeping her away from other animals at present and limiting her interaction with our crew.
