Video of Maxi’s Pups at Two Weeks Old!

I also promise to … [Read more…]

The puppies’ eyes are still closed but their noses are beginning to turn. The two chocolates will have dark brown noses and the others will have dark … [Read more…]

Time to Start Taking Temperatures

Taking Maxi’s temperature will help me know within 24 hours when she is actually going to whelp her little Havanese puppies.  She is due Saturday so I began Monday. I take her temps in the morning and the evening when she has rested a while…which is pretty much all the time right now! If she … [Read more…]
