and we wait.....

Still no puppies. Dove is miserable. As I feared, she's a carbon copy of her mother. Breeding towards day 13 and 14 of her heat cycle, hormonal "egg white" discharge the entire time she's in whelp and looking like a puppy barge on her last few days. The pictures from a few days ago, she's gotten even bigger.

Now the good part would be that she whelps during the weekend-yeah, no vacation days used. Bad would be like her mother, the 2am emergency c-section at Doc's. Good, nice big healthy puppies. Bad, a lot of them. Okay, that's not really bad, but after the Dirty Dozen, a nice small 5-6 is all I dream about.

....and we wait.

Later gators...

Did you get any x-rays done, and if so, how many puppies could Doc count?

Sorry, "puppy barge" is a hilarious mental image. Good luck and best wishes to you and Dove!

Marg was the original "puppy barge" or "puppy bus". Usually the girls go to Doc's during the day when I'm at work so I don't have to worry about them. But Alec's working am shifts so, he's home an hour after I leave.

Xrays were done too early for a good count as we weren't super certain on the due date(long story). But Doc said she was 10 days out and they saw 5 pups with many more shadows-EEEK!
