12 days old

I thought I would weight Jethro in today and was laughing to myself when
the scale said 2 lbs 12.6 oz.
My "poor, skinny boy" I must go feed him now! LOL

Hanging out with Granny

Jethro hanging out with his Granny Tonka!

Some of you might think I'm crazy - well okay, all of you know I'm crazy - but I've been putting on my little thinking cap and have come up with some thought for Jethro's registered name.
Since Jethro means 'friend of God' and is also the name of a favourite TV character Jethro Gibbs of mine; that to take it once step further and use Gibbs background of being a Marine to use:
MiHi' s Semper Fidelis
Semper Fidelis for all of you that don't speak Latin means "Always Faithful"....seems very fitting for a Dane if you ask me!

Introducing Jethro!
One big fawn boy out of
Am Can Ch MiHi's A Starz' Born X Can Ch Diamond Danes Heavenly Sin

Envy and Jethro are doing well.

All this boy does is eat! Thankfully our vet Dr. Burton rocks and did a fantastic job on timing the c-section. Not only was Jethro fully 'cooked' but he was taken out before Envy's uterus started to break down.
Thanks to everyone for their good wishes, thoughts and stories!

C-section booked

Tomorrow the c-section is booked for noon. Today we did another ultrasound to see how Mongo is doing - all was great! Due to there only being one pup, there is not enough oxytocin released to start labour, and if you wait to long the pup can die.
I've waited too long, and spent too much to not to take a proactive approach to this pup!
I'll post pictures tomorrow.
