Oops! I Did It (Again and Again)

Was about to rest (sleep) this afternoon after lunch when our pregnant dog was wailing, as if calling for help. We knew she's due to deliver her puppies about this time. She was so noisy while waiting for her pups to come out. I asked Lingling (the dog); "Is this your first time?" My kids were cheering: "C'mon Ling, you can do it! Push! Push!" In just about 30 minutes, alas! There goes one pup. But I noticed that she doesn't know what to do because she did nothing. Unlike our other dog, she ate that cellophane-like covering of the pup so it can breath. I was already worried the pup would die so I bravely held the covering and tore it - breathlessly, so I couldn't smell the blood and the sticky water (or else, I'll throw up). Ew! Ew! Ew! Whew... it's alive! I immediately washed my hands and applied alcohol. After a few minutes, there's another shiny thing behind her! Still the dog did nothing, and so I did it again. And again, and again... until there's five puppies in all! I couldn't even remember how many times have I washed my hands already, because after I've led the pup to its mother's breast, I'd wash my hands. Now, I'm starting to worry about the food supply, but my kids are so excited! They even took a video on it. So, I'll be giving them all after about two months from now. Puppies, anyone?Actually, this is not the puppy I'm talking about, just a sample of how it looked like

You're so brave Mommy. I'm scared to do it.
Blessings to you.
