All is well. The puppies are 2+ days old and in the middle of the night when I'm so exhausted and am not getting my 12 hours of sleep, I wonder what this all is for?
Last night, being a little paranoid, I left T with the puppies and drove to Sue's to get her tubing stuff. I really should buy my own, or at least should of asked to borrow it prior to the births. I got in my Tahoe and it had frozen snow on the windshield. Not like Canada snow, but definitely not very Auburn-ish. When I tried to scoop it off with a credit card, I thought maybe it wasn't the right card. This is stuff only Iglooland people would know. It was frozen solid and went all the way to Sue's where it finally broke off. She wasn't sure what the white stuff was in her front yard but now she knows. I was home in a little over an hour and T gave me the low down on the nursing activities.
Soleil's boobies are pretty engorged and verging on mastitis, so I milked her over and over all night. About 2 am when the puppies were cranky and wouldn't stay settled, I wondered if this was just all worth it. I know it is, but not when I haven't had my sleep. I set my timer on my iPhone for 30-55 minute intervals, so I could rest. It was a good idea and I got sleep off and on for about 3-4 hours. After 2 am the puppies stopped being so fussy and everyone was content. Life is good this am.
The sable girls are looking very "Niffy" like in color. I gotta say I LOVE her color! I think the other girl is going to be named "Cosette", thanks to Dina. I also like Holly. My mom's name (that she changed when she was about 45) was Hollie. Keeping with the Holiday Tradition. And the snow storm. I need another name besides SquishyB for the blue boy. Not that I don't love SquishyB, but even Squishy has another name ♥♥
On the other note, Aura is seriously lame again. I am so frustrated and don't know what I'm going to do. I think she re-injured herself running in the pasture and I'm not able to keep her locked up right now. This was a worry of mine with so much running room. Thank God I have Ali'i and Khaliq is probably going for training in the summer, but she was my Tevis prospect and I'm not having a lot of faith in her being healed enough to condition. Poor girl!
