Unfortunately things did not progress in a text book pattern with this birth and due to the fact that Roxy had passed her expected date and showed no signs of beginning her labour, the decision was made to deliver the puppies by Caesarean section. Roxy's puppies arrived in the early afternoon of 1st June and both they and Roxy were soon ready to face the drive home to Messano. Roxy coped with the operation extremely well and being a very maternal bitch, soon got down to the task of feeding and cleaning her babies. We are pleased to report that everything is going well and although the entered the world through the sunroof instead of the door, the puppies are all thriving! They all weighed over a pound at birth and continue to put weight on at the expected rate.
