We haven't blogged for a while because we have been really upset. Rosie who was pregnant and, according to the breeder, was due to birth in September 2010, gave birth to a tiny boy during the night at the beginning of Feb, he was dead and still attached to the placenta, weighing 3.3kg in total. We had a post mortem done and there was no reason for his death but VLA acknowledged that he was premature. We gave Rosie antibiotics the same day but she died two days later. VLA can find absolutely no reason for her death either. It was really upsetting as there has been somebody here every day since August last year waiting for her to birth. She had been scanned twice and there had been a heart beat both times and even though the vet had told us that the due date was wrong we didn't want to believe him but it has now been confirmed. It doesn't really help being told that there was nothing that we could have done about it, sometimes it feels as though it would have been better if a reason had been found on PM.
On a brighter note. We had to leave the premises for me to go to a doctors appointment on 1st February. We were gone for all of 2 hours and look what we found when we got back.
