update on calpurnia
i realized late last night that calpurnia probably had more than just 1 pup. the one i found was probably what she hadnt eaten yet. there was no afterbirth or anything left - just the one pup. from everything i have read, the females will eat their dead pups out of a protective instinct. and from her very thin form now, i have a hard time believing there was just one pup. most likely 3 or possibly 4 as she was plumping up. we are still sad, but are so thankful she is ok. she is still feeling down & still not completely herself BUT she is definitely much better. she has eaten better tonight. she is still real clingy to me & i am just loving her as much as possible. we can always try again in 4 to 7 months.
