I have only had one dog in my life that I raised from a puppy...that was over twenty years ago and he was male. I have no experience whatsoever with female dogs.
On Tuesday she seemed more active and I even reached a milestone with her. I put out my hand to her after she finished eating. She come towards me, touched my hand with the tip of her tongue and dashed off...for our relationship...that is progress :)
Wednesday morning she did not show up until lunch time and she was no longer pregnant. Since I have no idea if her puppies were born Tueday night or Wednesday morning, I have decided they were born on April 6, 2016.
This is the first time that one of her litters is born on mom's lot. While I have not seen them, I watched her from the window and more or less know where they are at. I do not want to disturb them so she wont feel the need to have to move them. Guess I will see them soon enough.
