I have been on puppy watch for the last couple of days. Roxie continues to grow and the puppies are highly active wiggling around inside. I’ve got most of the whelping area ready and just a few more things to do. At this point, her appetite has diminished and she doesn’t want to eat very much. If the cat starts heading toward the food, she’ll run in and eat a few bites. If I put somthing yummy in her food like egg or peanut butter, she’ll eat it rather quickly.
Poor baby is so uncomfortable, she looks at me with those eyes of “mommy get them out of me”! But I know better, once they’re out, they’ll start sucking the life out of her and then she’ll look at me with the eyes of “mommy get them away from me!”.
Here is a video I took a couple days ago at the wiggly puppies. They are so active that just putting my hand on her brings them to me for some head scratching. It’s so cute. They’re like little aliens in there!
So what now? Based on her size and temperature, it looks like she will deliver right on time this Thursday. If there’s time, I’ll try to post here to say that they’re on the way, but after that, check Facebook for updates and pictures of them as they arrive. Don’t worry, there won’t be any actual birth photos or video. Just babies and mama.
