and then she had the second one and the third one wasnt responsive and she was licking it and so on and it wasnt moving. so I went and got it out of the sac it was quick when I got it out and then gave it back to her and the puppy still wasnt responding and then I started rubbing the pups chest trying to wake it and it still wouldnt wake move. and then my husband tried too. I really believe that the puppy was born dead. because after a while it started to get cold. has this happened to anyone. I know its a dog but I feel soooo horrible. I feel like maybe it was alive but unless I am brainless alive animals dont get cold.

It isn't that rare for a puppy to be born dead. My mom has been breeding dogs for years, and it does happen espesially when a dog is having her 1st litter. If they have a hard time delivering a pup and it spends too much time in the birth canal then the pup can die. Don't feel guilty about the little pup that didn't make it, there may have been nothing you could have done for it anyway. Congrats on the pups that did make it, and good luck with them, I hope they all grow up to be happy/healthy puppies!
