Thank you for posting the baby pics. They are all adorable. No idea if this is of any use to you, but they make washable whelping pads.
What a good job she did. Bet she'll be a wonderful Mama.

She looks much better in the last pic! I bet she was exhausted with 10 pups. They are adorable.

Sweet Susie! She looks like she will be a great mama. She deserves lots of shakes and treats and petting and praise! I cannot imagine delivering 10 babies... then chasing 10 toddlers...
Yeah, I've thought of that too. But she doesn't have to do laundry, change diapers, pay bills, or cook. She can just lay around and feed them, Which is all she's done all day anyway.
I do know she's going to need lots of special food. The guy we got Susie from had her mama fixed because she was such a good mama with such heavy milk for pups that she'd skinny down to nothing after each litter. He felt sorry for her because the pups would drag her down so badly.

Oh, I am so in love with these pups and your girl! She did a great job birthing ten babies! And kudos to your other dog who protected the baby when it rolled under the barn wall!
It's hard to believe they are ever that small!
Lucy is our other girls' name. She's an amazing dog. She'll lick calves when they're born till the mama runs her away. She loves baby anything and is so gentle and smart.
I regret to this day having Lucy fixed when she was young. Like I said, I don't like dogs and the only condition of getting Great Pyrs was that we'd just have one or two and NO PUPPIES! Then I fell in love with the breed and we got Susan specifically to have puppies.

Ohhhhh! Now I want one! Our Zoey would be very jealous though...

Oh! How precious! 10 puppies! Wow, quite a large litter. Please post another pic when you can!

generally they have 7-12 pups
So cute! 10!!! Is that a typical litter size???

not a groundhog to be seen around here. Nor opossums or raccoons. Yes, 12 great pyrs are just what you need.
That would elimiate groundhogs from making nest under my porch. Wrll...in the future, it would.

For some reason, the name "Susan" is cracking me up. I keep hearing "Suuuuuuuuusaaaaaaaaaaaaan" from Monsters vs Aliens.
