The morning the puppies were born..

Here is Kim's version:

She woke me up at 6 am making noises and then she was shaking (aka labor pains). At 7:20 am she made this horrible duck sound and when I picked her up she calmed down. I grabbed some towels and laid her in the box not realizing what I was doing. Then she made this painful howl and attacked her hind end. When I looked to see what the problem was, there was a head coming out with a sack. I called for my roommate Anna and asked her if Ella was in labor, she looked and when Anna moved Ella's tail, Ella attacked her hind end again and soon the puppy was out and she had cleaned her first baby up. I called Jenn and then Kelly and Kelly had me listen for the puppy to make some noise, I heard her make some small gasps of air and then she was crawling all over the place. Ella sat on her twice not realising the puppy just wanted to drink some milk, but finally she let the puppy drink. At around 9:10 the second puppy was born and then 15 min. the third little girl was born. They are so cute.
