As Ally sat there with her dog, she could not believe that after sixty-five days, the moment had finally come. She thought she had more time, but it would be great if her dog, Lucy, had her puppies on January 1st.

Her grandmother was there to help with the delivery. The first puppy slithered out very easily. One by one, the others followed until they had nine bundles of joy. Lucy was already a great mother as she had cleaned the mucus off each of her babies. Everyone relaxed and after about twenty-five minutes passed. Lucy’s breathing became labored again. She began panting and another puppy came out.

They could not believe it. The vet had only seen nine heartbeats. They were beyond nervous but prayed that this new beginning would turn out okay. Lucy kept pushing and finally they spotted some golden color, but he was stuck. They had to help her by turning him slightly, and eventually, he slivered out, but he was quite a bit smaller than the others. Everyone was exhausted, and they could not believe that only a few hours had passed in this new year. It was such a surreal moment to not only watch living things be born but to also watch another living thing become a mother. The excitement, the newness, and the puppy smell overtook the room.

Ally and her grandmother just knew that this was going to be the best year ever as they had already created new memories and experienced a truly life changing event. This had been on Ally’s bucket list for many years and to mark it off was such an amazing feeling. Blessings were all around and it was no mistake that it all started on January 1st.
