Promise's Litter

Promise was bred and had a litter of pups. She free whelped. One of the pups had a small cut at the base of the top of it's tail... I thought it was a small cut somehow... then a friend came over and showed me that the pup had spina bifada (sp) and was leaking spinal fluid ...

She showed me how when you put pressure against it's back legs it couldn't push back.. thus the puppy would not be able to nurse efficiently and was paralyzed. So the puppy was humanly euthanized.
