I cannot get over how big she is already. I'm going to be prepared for her to have the puppies early, but I hope they will get the full 63-day gestation period, as both of her mother's litters were born exactly 63 days after ovulation.
This weekend is laundry weekend... washing all the puppy towels, blankets, and whelp box carpets and mats. I'm also going to stock up on paper towels, laundry detergent, dog food, etc. So, in other words... I'm starting to nest on her behalf.
River is doing great... she's excited about getting a little extra food and getting lunches again. She's still playing with Easter, but she does get tired more quickly.
The xray to count puppies is scheduled for November 26th, and her official due date is December 3rd.
Thank you for all the well-wishes and keep up the good thoughts and prayers.
