One thing that all of us should know, no matter you’re a guy or gal that giving birth is not an easy process at all. It is such a painful process that a mum have to go through. However, it is also a wonderful experience because the mum is giving a whole new life to a new born.
Why am I saying all this now?
Before I explain further, let me announce this, it’s quarterplets. =) . The first 2 are males, and second 2 are females.
I have stayed up last Saturday night till Sunday morning by setting alarm clock hourly. Suki have started panting since Saturday night and I believe that’s when her labor starts. I have created a whelping box for her delivery and place it outside my room. I knoew that she plan to give birth on first floor becoz I tried to put the whelping box at ground floor, she can still run up to first floor in my room. And guess what, she plans and about to jump onto my bed. I suspect she wants to give birth on my bed. NO WAY I WILL ALLOW THAT MAN!
So, I ended up pu the box just outside of my room where I can still watch her while lying down on my bed. So, not wanting to miss out the process and also to make sure everything is fine, I have to stay up the whole night. Once in a while, she’ll go to her whelping box and dig. When she does that, I have to open my eyes wide and observe if she’s delivering that time. But, everytime was just a false alarm. When woke up at 7am, she still haven’t deliver yet. OMG… that’s so torturing.
So, about 9+am. She’s been sitting in the whelping box and started panting heavily. At 10am, I witnessed a wonderful thing in the world. Suki had her contraction and gave birth to her first male puppy at 10.04am. It’s such an animal mother instinct to clean up her own puppy and bite off the umbilicol cord. Suki was doing quite well that she managed to deliver to 4 still healthy live puppies in 2 hours time.
Suki in labor since Saturday night.
Weighing machine shows that Suki is 5.2kg which I think it’s inaccurate coz I remember she was about 5.4kg two days before.

The vet advise to give Suki puppy dog food after delivery as it has more nutrients. Unfortunately, Suki’s Purina One is out of stock currently and only arrived this week. So, Mr. BF sponsored Suki a small packet of puppy dog food temporary while waiting For Purina One dog food.
There are more photos and videos to be shared but I’m pretty tired and exhausted now. I will try to upload soon. By the way, any suggestion for her puppies name? I have some Japanese name in mine perhaps you can help me out on choosing names for each puppy.
