dog days

Our new year was not greeted by fireworks but by a new addition to our family in the form of 5 cute pug puppies. Chanel, who was heavily pregnant went into labor around 9pm, right after we had dinner at Sokha Hotel's Takezono restaurant. We were making our way into Pub Street for the new year festivities when we got the call from Grannie who decided to stay at home. Chanel gave birth to her first puppy!

We immediately made our way home and helped out Chanel. Having no experience in pet pregnancy, I had a baptism by fire when I assisted her bring out 4 more puppies which was difficult for her as she was only doting on the firstborn. Several amiotic sacs and umbilical cords later, the delivery was complete. 3 females and 2 males.

By midnight, the fireworks erupted as we welcomed the 5 pug puppies... Gucci, Pucci, Hermes, Dolce and Gabbana!
