Sirin X Duman puppies just arrived!

A natural birth!!! Yay! Given the previous uterine inertia issue with the mother, Sirin, we chose to try raspberry tea, given orally, calcium injection IM at first sign of labor, oxytocin given at first sign of pushing, and a second shot of oxytocin given about 3 hours after third pup was born. Not sure if Sirin is finished whelping, but puppies are nursing happily and seem to have voracious appetites for such small tadpole-like creatures.
First pup born was a male, 20.2 oz (see above). Fawn head and body with white on the nose. White tipped tail. No rear dew claws.
Second pup born (see above) was a female, 19.7 oz. Very dark head and body. All dark tail. Single rear dew claws.
Third pup born was a second female, 20.2 oz. Fawn body and head with no white on the nose. White tipped tail. No rear dew claws.
