Precious Ann was born July 23, 2004. She had a very rough start in life, she was an only puppy, born from Champion Parents. She was born weighing less that 2 oz. When I saw her I knew we were in trouble. I tied her umbilical cord and handed her to her mom. I knew right away we had a fight on our hands to keep her alive. The mother proceeded to clean her and then chewed the cord even shorter and Precious Ann started to bleed out. I grabbed her up and retied the cord. She was even weaker now because a pup that size doesn't have much blood to begin with. The next 3 wks were sleepless, she had to be hand feed every 2 hours around the clock as she did not have the strength to nurse. After she regained her strength we let her nurse her Mom. for the next year we still had scary times with her as she would stop eating and become hypoglycemic. At least twice she was closer to death than life. Finally she turned the corner and now seems to be a healthy happy 2 lb papillon, however we don't know what tomarrow will bring.

Although she is cute as she can be, this is a good lesson as to why reputable breeders do not breed for tiny paps. Unfortunately it happens periodically but never to us on purpose. We Love her dearly, and she will remain with us hopefully until she is old and toothless.
