We had mated our lovely Sparta with a handsome male we have known since birth, Eros.
Miðnætur Erotic Eros is owned by a close friend of mine and bred by another friend of mine.
So I was very happy to use this stunning male, He has alot of qualities and for my taste he and Sparta match perfectly together.
After waiting for 9 weeks we ended up the morning of 8th of August at the hospital in a C-section.
A gorgeous light red and white preemie puppy had entered the world. I could not wish for anything else and our journey was started.
To say that it was a dream come true and that all was just joy and happiness would be a lie.
The hardest weeks of my live had begun. As I said earlier she was a preemie pup, born approx. 5 days before she was ready.
She had no hair on her muzzle or feet and she did not breath normally. The vet said that she had undeveloped lungs, and the only thing we could do was to wait. So we did.
She did not feed without help, so the timer was set every 2 hours day and night to wake up and help her feed from her moma.
Her weight went up and down and she had to visit the vet 2 times her first 5 days to get water injected under her skin to keep her hydrated. This little girl was a fighter and she was not going down without a fight.
At 10 days old I thought I would loose her, she started to make these awful sounds like she was in a great deal of pain. I cuddled her all night and tried to make everything comfortable for her and took her to the vets when the sounds got so horrible that I cried with her. She was so little and her tiny body screamed so loud.
Our doctor said she was alright and I didn´t need to worry, the sounds was just her trying to get more air and her lungs was probably trying to develop.
When she was 2 weeks she had gotten more hair and she started to breath normally. After that all went up, she started drinking her self and then eating food. It took her a little bit more time than other puppies to open her eyes and start to walk, but she got the hang of it.
Her name is Maura, named after the most brilliant doctor I have ever seen.
Being a singleton pup life can be hard,she knows that the sun revolves around her :) and she has a lot of attitude.
For the first time, I present the first puppy born at our kennel
