October through December, 2018

In November we made more progress getting the new house furnished and entertained several visitors, including a couple of overnights for Lauren and Allie on school holidays. On 9 December Marcus and Sam's dog Bella began to deliver puppies but ran into complications after successfully delivering three pups. Bella had to be rushed to the vet early in the morning. We drove up to Carlsbad to help take care of the hours-old pups while their mom was out of commission. The remaining six pups were delivered by C-section, with one stillborn. Bella recovered quickly and was able to take over some of the puppy care late in the day.
