View Full Version : Introducing Ace

25th March 2008, 12:09 PM
After a very rocky start, Ace is thriving. He was a singleton born 9 days ago by Csection and his mom didn't have any milk, I was tube feeding him but then his temp got erratic and he was so lethargic that I got him into our 24 hour vet for 2 days of intensive care. Once he gained back some weight he lost, he came home and I continued the intensive care, and also was able to bring in Nina's milk using every trick in the book. He was born at 12 oz, went down to 11, and now is at 1 lb 2 oz! I won't truly relax until he starts waddling around but wanted to show you my new boy, Giltmor One of a Kind, aka Ace.

Ace is gorgeous! Nina must be a proud mummy. They are so lucky to have your assistance and quick thinking in getting him to a vet. I really hope he continues to thrive and make progress. Keep us updated.

He's stunning :)
Do you have a home for him yet? ;)

I had a list of 10 people who wanted to be notified when NIna gave birth...she usually has large litters so this one was a fluke, and her last. I don't want to keep a boy, but I'm not placing him until I see how he turns out. She's had 2 tri's before but they didn't look anything like him. I also know there is no way I won't be ridiculously attached to him after this week. He's already started to melt in my hands.

He's already started to melt in my hands.

Or is it that you are melting in his paws Nancy!! He is adorable and so glad he is doing well.

Oh Nanct, Im so happy to hear hes doing well!
( Cant wait to see more photos of him as he grows! )

Awww, Nancy, he's just precious. You are doing a great job of nursing him to health. Love his name too.

Hi there Ace, nice to meet you!!

What is it with singleton pups eh Nancy?? I had a singleton last year who was a C-Section delivery too but happily without any feeding problems. I think that as there is only one pup to concentrate on you can't help but let them sneak into your heart regardless!! He looks very nice, will be interested to see how he grows on for you!! Well Done Nina, (and Dad, he played his part too!) Ace is beautiful :luv:
