Hapi's Pregnancy Journal
April 10, 2013
My Puppy Kidz are 9 weeks old now. They are
weaned and starting their potty training. They are so independent and play like
little Havanese. Iím so proud of my little Tear Drops. I have enjoyed being a
Mom and look forward to the next time. Itís sad also, itís time for me to say
good bye to my Puppy Kidz as each one leaves for his new home. I will kiss them
and wish them a happy healthy long life. Their new families will spoil them
like they so deserve.

Well itís sad but time to wean the little
drops. Mom has been feeding them ground kibble mixed with water. Iím really
kinda glad, THEY HAVE TEETH!!! I still nurse them but not as much. Missi thinks
that she wants to take over now and nurse them for me. Oh NO, that will never
happen. I let her know in no uncertain terms that she canít nurse my Puppy
Kidz!!! Next week Mom will help me wean them completely by keeping them in the
puppy playpen instead of the whelping box. We have been bringing them into the
family room and playing with them. They are so sweet! Drop 2 likes to do Puli
spins like me. Itís so cute seeing a 2 pound Puppy Kid doing Puli spins. We all
just love to play with them and chase them around the couch. They have found
the toy box also and we have toys all over the room! Next week we will start

My Little Drops have really grown in the
last couple of weeks. Mom and I put some toys in the whelping box for them to
play with and they just love them! I donít have to feed them as much now but
wow, when they are hungry they let me know. They are so big now that itís
easier for me to just stand up to feed them! Drop 1 actually crawled out of the
whelping box and was running around trying to figure out how to get back in.
Mom had to come to the rescue! She also put the ĺ door in the opening so that
wouldnít happen again!

All the Puppy Kidz have taken their first steps
now and they are still wobbling but walking. They still havenít found their
bark and they sound like cooing pigeons. They are getting so plump, they all
have a good seat at the milk bar! I have seen some play activity this week
between them so Mom and I will add toys for them this week. They are so cute!!
Drop 2 has a birthmark on her tummy. Its so cute! This is the only way Mom can
tell Drop 2 and Drop 3 apart they look so much alike. I canít wait for them to
get a little bigger and start developing their personalities. I want to play
with them! Missi thinks that she will nurse my Puppy Kidz and tries to get into
the whelping box. Well Missi, no way!!!! These are my Puppy Kidz!!

Hi everybody its Hapi!! I can take a few to
write to you. My Puppy Kidz are getting bigger now and I can leave the whelping
box for just a few minutes. My Puppy Kidz are soooo beautiful. I just love
being a Mom. That Charles tries to get close enough to see them but I really
think he just wants my bully stick so I growl at him and scare him away. When Iím
alone in the bedroom with my Puppy Kidz I like to lie just outside the whelping
box and chew on my bully stick or on Mom and Dadís bed. When the Puppy Kidz get
hungry I go back in the whelping box and take care of my them. I have to run
and make sure that Charles is not stealing my bully stick!!

All Hapi does is come downstairs to go
outside and do her business then right back upstairs to the Puppy Kidz! She
will not leave the whelping box. Mom gave her food and water just outside the
whelping box and a bully stick to chew on. All she does is take care of the
Puppy Kidz and chew on her bully stick. I tried several time to get close to
them so that I could see them but she wonít allow me to get close enough to the
whelping box to even get a glimpse of them. We have started calling her the Pit

All the Puppy Kidz are gaining weight and
growing like a weed. Hapi is a wonderful Mom and Iím so proud of her. She is
taking good care of my Puppy Kidz! So good that I can hardly get close enough to
the whelping box to see them. She growls at me! So bad that Iím really afraid
of her! Oh well, sheís a wonderful Mom.

Hello, itís Sir Charles. Hapi started her
labor again about 9:00 a.m. Mom got really worried about 1:00 p.m. because she
wasnít progressing as we had hoped and her temperature had dropped really low.
The doctor said c-section! So off to the hospital Mom, Dad, and Hapi went. Hapi
had a wonderful team of doctors and technicians. She had an anesthesiologist
who monitored her comfort level and vitals, a doctor that actually did the
surgery, a doctor for the Puppy Kidz, and a large staff of technicians to care
for the Puppy Kidz. They were out in 2 minutes flat! The Puppy Kidz were very
alert and vocal too. As soon as Hapi woke up she got to come home. Mom kept her
and the Puppy Kidz warm in the whelping box and helped Hapi accept the little
guys. About 11:00 p.m. her motherly instincts kicked in. Iím happy to report
that everybody is healthy and happy! A
very special bark out to Dr. Feuerbach and the entire staff at Frey Pet
Hospital!! You guys are the greatest!!

I started my labor about midnight last night
and now its stopped. Mom stayed up all night with me and rubbed my belly. My temperature
has dropped and Iím hoping (NOT) that my contractions will start again. Ugh!!
February 1, 2013
I one week to go!! Yea!! Double Yea!! Iím
so measurable and so fat and I only have 3 maybe 4 puppies. I can hardly walk
and when Mom picks me up I just grunt. All I want to do is lie around and chew
on my bully stick. yoRzy thinks he wants to bother me and I let him know in no
uncertain terms to LEAVE ME ALONE!! Mom has been so good at rubbing my belly
for me. It makes me feel so loved and relaxed. She even felt my little Puppy
Kidz moving last night. Tomorrow we start taking my temperature twice a day;
watching and waiting for it to drop.

I had my ultrasound today, I have 3 little
Puppy Kidz!!! I have one really big one and he was looking at us. We saw his/her
nose, face, and eyes. It was soooo cool to see this. Dr J said it was unusual to
see them so well and detailed. He/she was saying Hello to us. We also saw the
heart beats, yes 3 of them, and everybody look healthy.
January 11, 2013
I get to have my ultrasound performed by
the really sweet Dr J, my OB Gyn, tomorrow. Mom felt 3 bumps this week and
thinks that itís Puppy Kidz. My tuck, for you humans waistline, is gone! Oh ya,
Iím getting fat! Iím so hungry too and have had some nausea which makes it fun
to eat. My Puppy Kidz have toes, whisker buds, claws, and even look like dogs.
I canít wait to see them tomorrow on the ultrasound!
January 4, 2013
Week four! Ok the morning sickness has
occurred and Mom is almost sure that Iím expecting. My Puppy Kidz have developed
their noses, spinal cords, and their faces are starting to take shape. I have just been sleeping a lot and protecting
my bully stick. I have been very emotional as well. I have to be in Momís lap
all the time.
December 28, 2012
Ok I know that Iím pregnant but Mom still
isnít sure, he he, Iím fooling her! I have been so protective of my bully stick
and when Santa came to visit, I wouldnít let anybody else touch my new toy! Itís
my toy and keep your paws off!! I love to snuggle at night with Mom or Dad in
bed. I demand my belly rubs. My Puppy Kidz are just embryos and have implanted
into my uterus now. I want them to know what petting is so I demand my belly
December 21, 2012
Two weeks now and Mom isnít sure if Iím
pregnant or not. I havenít had any morning sickness and the only changes Iíve
had is the emotional changes. I want to be held, I want to be in Mom or Dadís
lap and I must get my belly rubs at night when we go to bed.
December 14, 2012
Iím into my first week of pregnancy and I
donít really feel any different except Mom said that my personality has
changed. Iím not so shy and I want attention. Anybody comes around I want them
to show me attention. I guess itís the hormonal changes going on.
