All 11 of them!!!!

I had hoped for six nice fat healthy puppies. Cara, Becca's co-owner thought perhaps 8 puppies would be great. Never did I even remotely dream that there would be 11 (ELEVEN!!) babies baking inside Becca!!

This morning Mom and babes are doing well, Becca has had her first remotely solid meal and the babies are nursing.

I need more sleep. I need to get some work done. But . . . I have a few wee distractions today.

This morning Becca's temperature had dropped significantly and she didn't quite finish her breakfast. Signs are that she's moving towards delivery but probably lots of time to go yet.

The midwives have rearranged some of their plans with Cara arriving here in the next few hours.

Fingers crossed all goes well!! (And that I don't faint!!)

Day 59

So the waiting really begins.

Carpetting is now finished in half the house and the rest will wait until puppies are moved to laundry room or to Becca's breeder's house. Looks fabulous but no pics as my camera had an accident this past Sunday. May have to rely on midwives to bring cameras with them!!

Becca continues to get bigger and bigger and more and more uncomfortable - poor little girl!

Day 44* Update

Becca's breeder was over yesterday and we got a few shots of Becca in all of her pregnant glory. Based on the date of the first breeding, yesterday may have been Day 44 and she's looking awfully full considering she has over two weeks to go!

And yes, she does look like she wants to kill someone!!
