Sad News on Gracie

Hello everyone. I didn't want to give you this sad news yesterday, on Mother's Day, but Gracie went into labor on Saturday and had complications. We took her to the emergency vet early Sunday morning. The puppy's shoulder and arm were lodged in the birthing canal and the vet could not manipulate it vaginally. They swiftly did an emergency c-section. Unfortunately, the baby did not make it. We are all very devastated for Gracie's loss and sorry for everyone's wait.

Know that Gracie is home comfortable and recovering. She knows she is missing a baby and it is heartbreaking. We are doing our best to keep her preoccupied. My husband coddled her while playing some soothing music last night, which calmed her, working very well. I thought that was amazing and very touching.


Also worth mentioning, I am so grateful for our veterinarian, who worked hard and long on Gracie's care. She came in on Mother's Day to care to Gracie's emergency without a second thought and I am truly grateful for her dedication and diligence. As always, Carter County Animal Hospital was there for us, and they are the best in knowledge and compassion.
Pet Loss Information
Waiting list, know that Rosie has mated, this being her first litter. We will be taking her in (in about a month) for a checkup and pregnancy test. If all took, she should have babies mid-July. We'll keep you posted on Rosie. Meanwhile, for now, we will be focusing on Gracie's recovery and happiness.

Thank you for your patience & support!!
