I know this is a tough question to ask, but I am just trying to get more information and possibly prevent horrible situations in the future. So my question is: has any breeder or dog owner had a bitch die during whelping, or shortly after? If so, why (if known)? And if there was anyway to have prevented her death, could you have? Knowing what you know now? Please no smart comments like, "don't breed your dog and she won't die" etc etc.
