No Puppies

Well, here is the story. On April 3 Cheeto was examined by her local vet and she did not feel any pups at that time. She did a progesterone level and it was inconclusive. The level was up but not high enough to say for sure that she was with pups. On April 4 the vet at PAWS saw Cheeto and Dr. Jeanne did an ultrasound and did not see puppies. We then waited until today April 12 to repeat an ultrasound at Bob's office and the results: no puppies. What did we see on the early ultrasound? Well, since we are not experts at looking at puppies it could have been a piece of bowel on end or an early pregnancy that did not continue. In any event Cheeto and I both get some time off! She is feeling good and the vomiting stopped this week. Hopefully there will be another litter before the end of the year after a summer of beach and swimming that Cheeto just loves.

Many of the O puppies are making their way back to Michigan. Olga has already been turned in and Ollie goes back next month. Good luck and study hard O puppies.

Well its good that Cheeto is still healthy and that the vomiting has stopped. Hopefully there will still be puppies in the future, if not right now!

I am so glad to hear Cheeto is back to health again. Maybe she decided to enjoy her summer and get back to having another litter after he summer fun.
