Time frame for birth of puppies

It came to my attention through the eyes of a wonderful 20 year old woman, who I have known since she was four, that she thought puppies were all born at once, not so!!  In a big litter puppies birthing can take up to 24 hours.  In this litter it was 8 hours, however, Violet retained a puppy that was born 22 hours after the birth of the first puppy.  She was stillborn.  Violet developed a serious uterine infection because of this, spiked a fever of 105.  Violet is doing great now.  She is on massisve doses of antibiotics for ten days. The puppies are being bottled fed twice a day to put probiotics in their systems to counter the effects of the antiobiotics in their mother's milk on their systems.

The first puppy was born at 7:30 AM on 9/12/09:
          Ms Pink @ 7:30 AM
          Mr. Red @ 8:36 AM
          Ms. Violet @ 9:04 AM
          Ms Cornflower @ 9:50 AM
          Mr. Green @ 10:35 AM
          Mr. Orange @ 12:05 PM
          Mr. Blue @ 12:25 PM
          Mr. Purple @ 3:34 PM
A little stillborn girl was born 9/13/09 @ 5:30 AM.

Birthing puppies is a natural event and can be with great sorrow and stress.
