Maid is due to have puppies this Monday.
A few years ago we bred her and she beat her due date by 3 days. It was a little bit of a surprise and she whelped the first one in her crate. This time I am going to get the jump on her.
I moved her into her whelping box tonight. I am sorry for the bad quality of the photos. Like a few of our other dogs, Maid firmly believes that if you take her picture you will steal her soul.Scott has helpfully shrunk the whelping box down to half it's usual size. It was too big before and the newborn blind pups often would get lost in it.
Several people have asked me if I thought she was getting big - I'd say so. Fortunately, she won't be too lonely in her new digs, Poe said he'd spend the night with her while she gets used to her home.
