Our bipawd is here! 

Well, actually, she's been here for a month now, but life gets crazy busy with a newborn around - who knew! winker

I'll spare everyone the super gory details, but little miss made her arrival on February 21st after 25 hours of labour at 12:55 am weighing 5lbs 7oz. She was just over 3 weeks early but perfectly healthy!

The dogs are doing well with her but we're still taking things super slow with Dante and Mina. Coda has been around lots of babies so she wasn't phased at all by the new arrival. Mina is totally in love but a little too over excited still - she's coming around though! Dante was a bit worrisome at first. Very excited but he would chase us while we held her and sit in expectation like he does for toys or treats, so we had to back off quite a bit and take things more slowly with him. He's doing much better now! Any interactions right now are still brief and heavily supervised and will be for a long while - you can never be too careful!

We're doing well. I had a tough go - labour was rough on me and the recovery was pretty brutal, along with some infections. But we're over that now and I feel great! It helps when you have a baby who sleeps really well at night and is probably one of the most content and easy babies ever! We're super lucky - we hit the baby jackpot for sure.

Here she is big-grin

Congrats on the new bipawd! "Content and easy" sounds very good!

Congratulations again on your growing pack,

Jackie, Angel Abby's mom

Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman. Tripawds blog, and a more detailed blog here. Please also check out my novel, What the Dog Ate. Now also in paperback! Purchase it at Amazon via Tripawds and help support Tripawds!

Beeeeeeaaaaauuuutiful! I was just thinking about you the other day and figured that this was about the time the little bi-pawd was going to show up. Congratulations!!!! 

What's her name???

Sorry you had a rough time, but heck, if you can make it through amputation recovery, you can make it through L&D! winker Just kidding. Glad that you're both doing well. And not that you'll have all the time in the world to blog or anything, but we would love to hear more about how the fur kids adapt to the little one (and vice versa). Soooo many folks wonder about this.

Thank you so much for the update!!!

Mazel Tov!  What a cutie (even if she's not a tripawd).

Enjoy every minute!

Congratulations on your beautiful baby. She looks so sweet! Let's see, three dogs and one baby — you're not busy are you?

Smilin' Sammy, March 16, 2004 – Dec. 5, 2011
Golden retriever, diagnosed with osteosarcoma in September 2010 — right front leg amputated November 2010. He fought valiantly to stay with us; but a second diagnosis of osteosarcoma, this time in his left front leg, was more than our golden warrior could overcome. He loved his pack — and everyone else he met.

We loved him even more.
Thanks for the pennies, Sammy. They helped.

Chelsea, she's lovely! Congratulations! You have other hairless bipawds, right? I hope the whole pack is settling in nicely. And I'm breathing a big sigh of relief that you are healthy now after what sounds like a bummer of a postpartum time. Infection is a scary thing!

Our hairless bipawd granddaughter will be arriving in a few months. I have zero experience with girls, so maybe I should start quizzing you!

Congratulations again, and all the best for continued smooth, easy and content!

Thank you guys! Her name is Alexi Elizabeth smiley

Shari, unless my fiance counts as a child (and most days he does! laughing) she's my first! 

I can tell you this about girls so far - at this age, they're every bit as gross as boys are laughing  Between little miss and Daddy (and the three dogs!), my nose is assaulted on a regular basis. ugh But, when there are pink ruffles on the assaulting bum, it's much more tolerable. I wonder if Daddy would wear pink ruffles on his bum? 

 Oh, and be forewarned - even though little girls lack the proper equipment, they can still get you when they pee during diaper changes! A lesson Dad learned pretty fast! Hehe.
