My golden retrievers thought it would be fun to breed. So, yesterday i took a trip to the vet to try to push the labor process along. We had 13 puppies total, although only 4 lived. She had a piece of tissue blocking the birth canal, so one puppy got stuck there and didn't make it. Because of the blocked puppy, and her pushing so much, it caused problems with quite a few of the other puppies. It was pretty sad seeing 9 puppies come out with no heartbeat, but we are thankful for the 4 that are alive. *EDIT The total moved to 14 today. So, they makes 10 puppies who didn't make it.
