A Pile of Puppies!

We had it all planned! Take our pregnant female black Lab, Suri to the vet for an x-ray and then we would FINALLY know how many puppies to expect!

It was two days before her due date and we had no reason to expect any surprises around the corner. Little did we know!

On the way to the vet, we were SOOO excited! As first-time grand puppy parents, this was an exciting journey for us! We had wanted our two Labs to share one littler of pups. They are both such beautiful creatures that it seemed a shame not to duplicate them. Of course, I don’t think we had thought it through quite enough before we allowed them to mate. And it only took ONE time! After that, there was no reversing course.

As the vet took Suri away for the x-ray, we waited for the news. “Please, not a litter of 12 pups!” I thought. Labs are famous for having LARGE litters. In fact, I had even read about one “dam” that had 16 pups! (Please God, no!) I started humming the theme song from that old family TV show from the early 80’s, Eight is Enough! Yes, eight pups would be perfect.

When the doctor returned, he sat down with a sigh and looked at us intently before breaking the news. “Oh no! Here it comes!” I thought. He cleared his throat and began, “Suri has already gone into labor and there’s a pup stuck in the birth canal. But that’s not all,” he paused as I felt a sense of dread wash over me, “we need to do a C-section immediately if you want the pups to survive because she’s not having contractions anymore.”

Hubby and I glanced at each other wide-eyed. Our poor Suri! And we had both been at work this whole time! Hubby had come home at lunch to check on her and then gone back to work.  Somehow in those four hours or so, IT had happened. We hadn’t been there for her! OMG! She must have been miserable…and we both felt terrible. 

For the two of us, there was no discussion. I gulped once and nodded. “Let’s do it!” Hubby croaked. The doctor nodded but just before he stepped out of the room I grabbed his arm. “Wait! How many…how many puppies?”

“Oh yes! I almost forgot!” he said. “I think you’re going to have eight pups!” Yes! Eight pups I can handle (I think).

And so, that night, instead of returning home with the results of an x-ray, we carried home a cardboard box filled with puppies nestled comfortably under warmed towels.

  40. Doch insgesamt lohnt sich der Kauf, denn die Immobilie steigert ihren Wert und
    am Ende besitzt der Käufer seine eigene Immobilie als Vermögensanlage.
    So lässt sich dann wiederum Geld mit Immobilien verdienen. Dabei zahlt er dann
    nur noch die Instandhaltungskosten, während der Mieter weiterhin Miete und Nebenkosten zahlen muss.
    Zusammenfassend lohnt sich der Kauf einer Immobilie und das
    Geld in Immobilien investieren, wenn die Kreditwürdigkeit gegeben ist und der Fokus auf einer langfristigen Planung liegt.
    Mit einem Kredit oder genügend Eigenkapital lässt
    sich zudem auch eine Wohnung oder ein Haus als Mietobjekt kaufen. Wichtig ist hierbei jedoch, dass ein besonderer Fokus auf
    der Objektbewertung liegt. Denn nur wenn die Wohnung oder das Haus qualitativ überzeugen können und keine groben Mängel aufweisen, lässt sich mit
    den Immobilien Geld verdienen. Das Ziel ist dabei,
    einen positiven Cash-Flow zu generieren. Dass bedeutet, dass nach Abzug aller
    Kosten und Steuern von der Kaltmiete jeden Monat ein Überschuss
    vorhanden ist.

  60. Betting refers to a voluntary act of risking money or something else
    of value on an event with an uncertain result, with the intent of winning something or money.

    Gambling requires three factors in order for it to succeed: risk,
    consideration, and an award. There are many distinct kinds of gaming, such as horse betting,
    online gambling, bingo, slots, and video poker.
    There is even a sort of gambling referred to as online gambling, where bets are made under false pretenses, often times due to the fact that
    the person will lose money if they continue to make those
    bets. There are a great deal of games you can play, but there is one that is most frequently associated with casino gambling, and that is internet gambling.

    The fundamental idea of gambling is that you place a bet and expect that the amount you put in the bet (whether it is winnings or losses) will eventually get back
    out. Gambling is most frequently associated with slot machines.
    If you visit a casino and gamble, chances are that at least part of your money will
    be used to buy drinks for you, as you play. This is called gambling because you are risking money to find a certain outcome.
    In most states, gambling is illegal.
