We have a new member of the Oasis clan. It was bittersweet at the time.

Phoenix went into labor a day early so she went to the vet. She went straight into surgery for a C-section. Unfortunately, a big brindle boy had passed away prior to birth and had become toxic to Phoenix's system..thus the reason she went into labor early. Fortunately, a little fawn girl was way up in the uterine horn so had not become too contaminated at the time of delivery. She was born with a strong heart beat but did not want to breath on her own. After a few minutes of breathing for her and trying to get her going, she finally gasped her first breath. A few minutes more, we had her screaming bloody murder! Was VERY happy for that.

Phoenix had plenty of milk on day one and two, but because there was just a singleton, it dried up by day three and we had to begin bottle feeding the baby. Fortunately, she was very strong so she took to the bottle very well. She's not up to 2 `1/2 lbs (a bit smaller than I'm used to) and is growing steadily.

She is a very quiet baby and very calm. Taking care of her is very soothing. Therefore, I decided to name her "Zen". Her registered name will be Oasis And Zen There Was One and call her Zen. Will post pictures soon!

Oh my! That is the cutest thing I have seen in a long time. Puppy breath, puppy snorfling--doesn't get much better. She is definitely a special girl. Well named.
