Walker is gone. Leidy laid on him this evening and apparently suffocated him. There was no puppy scream, nothing so that I could run in and rescue him. I had been in holding and cuddling the babies. I left them to put away dishes. I went back in to check them before I went to bed and Leidy was frantically licking Walker, but he was gone.
I feel so helpless with this litter. The babies are being picked off one at a time no matter how careful I am. I am glad this day is over.
