Phoebe’s next litter is due next week. Last night we snuggled on the LazyBoy and I could feel the puppies squirming around in Phoebe’s belly. As often as I have felt puppies this way it is still exhilarating. Life inside life.
We go tomorrow night to get an x-ray to see how many puppies she has. If she has six or more they will be smaller and much easier to whelp. If she has three or less whelping could be an issue as the puppies will be much larger. (They are like goldfish…grow into the size of their container!)
I will begin taking her rectal temperature Friday. A normal temp is 101-102. When it drops below 99 whelping will begin twelve hours or so later.
