    once the placenta comes out the cord will be attached to it. The mom should chew/cut it away. Keep us posted! How exciting!

    Quote:Just be patient-its stressed out right now because of being born--just leave it where it is and mom should od all the work-she will nudge it to nurse and everything-puppies just have the instincts to look for food on momma-sometimes they need to be placed on moms nipples but I wouldnt this sonn mom is probably getting ready to have another pup and she wont settle down to be momma until she is done--make sure where ever DW cut it is not bleeding-you should tie a not in the cord with something sterile-a clip or something- DOnt cut anymore cords! Mom will do it-

    anotherone was just born also doing fine. DW has been doing nothing but researching online for the past month but as soon as she went into labor she forgot all that. they have been moved to the welping box and are doing good puppies seem very strong and are moving around alot. should we set up a broooder light?
