Wow. Our dear pitbull Kikay is now a mommy! I remember those days when she was a cute puppy herself... she won her very first dog show! And I remember those pictures I posted of her having her bath. :)
Yesterday morning, I took pictures of the *very pregnant* Kikay... Her tummy was sooo big and her udder (I'd like to call it her cow-boobs :P ) looked like it was about to burst with milk. Here are her adorable snapshots:
this was actually my first shot and my most favorite of all the pictures i took of her

All of us in the house were looking forward to her giving birth for the past few days since she was already a bit overdue. Finally, around 12:30am Sunday, she gave birth to her first pup. Our househelp, my mom and my dad pretty much stayed up til the wee hours of the morning to witness the momentous event. I, on the other hand, slept throughout her approx. 6hrs. birthing process because it was already 1:30AM and so far, there was only one puppy born. The 12th pup was born around 6AM. This was Kikay's first pregnancy. One of the pups was born underdeveloped and Kikay uhh ate it (yes, you can faint right about now...). The other one died shortly after it was born/was dead when it was born. There were 10 pups when I woke up today but by mid-afternoon, we found one cold and dead :( . So we're down to 9 pups now. But of the nine, I fear that 2 of 'em might die eventually-- one was a miracle baby coz when Kikay chewed off its umbilical cord, the rest of its insides were umm drawn out. So now it has part of its reddish insides kinda hanging out of its belly (umm, you can faint again right about now...). We call that pup "si Bituka" because of it. Another one is this pup we call "si Tigas" (I said, I'll name it "Astig" if it manages to live, hehe) coz when we cradled it on our hands and whenever we lift it, its body was just really stiff like it was dead, but it was still very much alive though.
Okay, here are the cutesy pictures of Kikay's cuddly litter...
cute cute pitbull puppies with pink eyelids, pink ears, tiny pink noses and pink paws *awww*
