7 days until "D" day!

Seven days and counting. I can't believe it. Everything is ready (I think). The whelping room is set up. Hula got a new whelping box, we used laminate shelving and made it larger. 4'x5'. She is in heaven when she is in there. Heck even I can get in there and lie down. Here are a few pics of her new digs and all the supplies that are ready for the arrival of the bouncing babies. Hula's x-ray for puppy count is the 5th.

We introduced a new snuggle buddy this go around. Mr. Snuggle's is a big floppy dog that a warming disc fits into. AND lets not for get the octopus. No breeding stock dog should EVER be without one.

2 Weeks and counting

We have made it to the two weeks and counting stage. Also at this stage is the rapid growth stage of the puppies, I expect to watch her belly grow over night. Hula definatley has slowed down. She is also really glad that the weather has broke and that it is cooler. Pregnant mama and humidity makes for an ugly Hula.

Here are her new belly pictures. Not the best photos as my good camera is in the shop. Make sure you look closely at Hula
s belly, her hair is starting to really have a bad hair day. Spreading wide makes the hair go CRAZY

Over Half Way

Hula is well past the half way mark of her pergnancy. She is really starting to show. Well to us anyways. She hasn't protruded too much out but I think that is because she is really long. And is hanging low rather than out. She is still the happy camper that she always was, just slower on the move.

Here are few baby bump pictures.

Exciting news, Hula got a second ultra sound and to our delight not only does she have more than 1, we have a confirmed 5... Yep 5. I know it isn't 10 like some but if you think about she has increased her production by 500%...... WOW!

Here are a few ultrasound photos.. The heart shaped one is placenta.... VERY cool stuff
