The most miraculous miracles happen when we try to do them ourselves. This is exactly what happened with a dog named Maggie, that, according to all the canons, should not have survived this winter with her still unborn puppies.
But it turned out differently – through the efforts of a Texas family, which after that became famous in social networks.
Maggie was found on the streets of Fredericksburg a month ago – in the last stage of pregnancy.
Through the efforts of volunteers, Maggie was first placed in a shelter, washed, treated, and then transferred to the Aubrey Morgan family. That experienced dog lover, she has three little dogs, but she had nothing to do with the birth of puppies.
But this is not a reason to retreat – Aubrey reviewed a bunch of videos and bought all useful ones, getting ready for childbirth. And then shock frosts came to Texas, the electricity went out, and with it the heat in the house.
Maggie began to give birth when the temperature in the house was already freezing.
Childbirth in frost is not the most pleasant, but relatively safe phenomenon, in the wild, it is not uncommon. The problem is that puppies need a lot of warmth in the first days of life if they cool down a little, become lethargic, lose their appetite and that’s it.
Aubrey and her husband urgently tried to solve the problem. Attempts to boil water and pour it into bags, as well as to close and warm one room, did not lead to anything.
The family decided to move into a car with a stove. And the birth continued!
The first four puppies were born in the house, the last three are already in the car. It all happened in the middle of the night, but in the end, the family sat inside for 12 hours until they were convinced that the puppies were in order.
But what next? There is still no electricity or heat, the forecasts are disappointing, and then Aubrey’s husband, at the risk of his life, drove the car along the icy highway to their parents’ house. As many as 45 minutes of a tense journey, and now a miracle happened – both people and animals were under the roof and in warmth!
Later, when the energy supply was restored, the family checked the puppies at the veterinarian – they were all right. The kids were named Daisy, Poppy, Ash, Rosie, Dahlia, Clover and Astra.
They came to the world in a difficult way, and this is a good sign – if not for the help of people, everything would have turned out much more tragic. Help your neighbors, whoever they are!
