Now that I think about it, yesterday, when I went out to feed Bridget, she would NOT get up to greet me. It's possible she had already had this puppy, and was trying to keep it warm.
She has not delivered any more pups. I did not notice any afterbirth, so I'm assuming Bridget ate that. I know many animals will, to recover the protein lost. If Bridget delivered a few still-born pups, or had a couple die due to severe weather, it's also possible that she ate the hypothetical deceased pups.
PeppA has told me that our neighbor (who gave Bridget to us) told her that Bridget has had a litter before.
Yes, ONE puppy in a litter for a dog of this size is odd.
And, yes, once we get the insurance settlement from PeppA's mother's policy, Bridget will be fixed.
Now, I'm just hoping we don't get blessed with a litter of kittens. The next couple of weeks will tell.
Pics soon. I've got to do something early tomorrow.
Peace, Love, and Vegetable Rights!
