    And our baby saga continues.

    Last night Betty safely delivered 3 pups. Two little girls and sadly another lethal white boy. I went into their room to check on them before bed around 11:30 and found her with all 3 of them already cleaned and dry.

    This new lethal boy is also completely blind and deaf. He has top incisors, but no bottoms. Time will tell if he is able to eat on his own.

    Gus, the other lethal is unfortunately not doing so well. At 12 days old he is still 100% reliant on round the clock syringe feeding. He is unable to chew any foods, no matter how small and shows zero interest in eating any combination of mush food on his own out of a dish. He will have a vet appointment later this week to see what his mouth looks like, but I don't think it will be good. He's already showing signs of overgrown molars with some drooling and his food mixtures are starting to dribble out his mouth more. I'm heartbroken about the whole thing.

    Everyone else is doing well. Babies are growing like weeds and both mamas seem to be happy and comfortable. I'm just finding it very hard to enjoy this part when there's so much sadness. Regardless, here's some updated photos of the crew.

    I'm glad both mama's are ok, and most of the pups. I am also very, very sorry about Gus, and Percy. I very much wish they had been dealt a better hand. I know you will do right by all of them and as I've said before, I know they couldn't be in better hands.

    So happy the delivery went OK, and so very sad about the new little lethal. But as @Guinea Pig Papa says, they couldn't be in better hands.
