*update*pug*puppies*new*momma!

Hi all. Just wanted to announce the arrival of our first puppy from Nikki first litter! I'm so happy, but worried too, she did not clean the pup at all and she will not nurse it. Well it was the first hopefully it will go smoother with the next one born. Everyone wish us luck! She is doing great otherwise.

Sometimes new moms can be clueless about cleaning them, but she should let them nurse. If she does the same with her next litter I would have her spayed removing her from the breeding program. Bad moms should be culled from breeding

* just wanted to add culled does not mean killed!! It means to remove* We use this term a lot in the rabbit world and it can mean kill but it also means petting them out or having them altered.

Thanks that was my plan, to let her have one more litter possible and see if she is a good mom then. If not, then yes, she will be most defiantly spayed and cut from my breeding bunch. But I think she should have one more chance, she seemed to be in a lot of pain to, which I think may have distracted her from caring for them. Sadly though she will not nurse them, I've been sneaking them onto her when she falls asleep but as soon as she awakes and realized what is going on she get far away from those puppies.

Ps, I was glad to hear your opinion, especially because it was the same as mine. It's nice to hear from a more experienced breeder and the fact that I was thinking the same thing makes me feel more confident in myself as a newer breeder thanks again
