Dizzy went to the vet today and we found out that there are 6 puppies in that little tummy! I can hardly wait!!!! Dr. Tatem says that she will probably go before her due date next Tuesday which is GREAT because that is the day that I start teaching school. If she has them before, then I will be there to hold her hand so to speak <LOL> I can't wait to see them. I can feel them move and kick and the vet said to try to fatten her up a bit. Any suggestions anyone?

Dizzy's litter

Congratulations on the upcoming litter. Not only do I hope the litter arrives before school starts for you but I hope you get a daytime delivery. Both Mimi and Stormy started delivering after midnight so not much sleep around here then. Not much sleep for the next week(s) either as I tend to check out every little noise for a long time.

Save that grooming table for when they are 8 weeks old and you need to do soaps of them plus all the practice stacking.

We're excited to see those grandbabies too, Chris! Is that day 59 from the 1st breeding or what? I just don't want you having preemies for your first litter or else you'll never go back to school and leave them in someone's care...grin.

As far as plumping up Miss Diz, you can try more frequent meals and you can add some Nutrical or those Satin Balls to her diet for snacks maybe. Nothing with calcium like yogurt, goats milk or cottage cheese before the delivery although after is fine.

Can you feed her a small meal at noon? This will not hurt her digestion and will help. Don't forget to have some NutriCal handy during delivery. Six pups can make them tired and she may need a burst of energy!

Congratulations Chris! I just went through this myself with six puppies born - all very healthy and the mother (Tinky) did so well. I am amazed at how instinct kicked in.

Can't wait to read your update.

Thank you, Tami.

They are doing GREAT - way better than I ever expected or imagined. They are four weeks old as of yesterday and such a joy to watch. I am now at the point where I can waste a lot of time just watching them wrestle and interact. Thank you for asking.

I have new photos posted in photo albums every couple of days. You can see them on my Puppies page on my web site. (The link is in my signature.)

How did you add the signature? I am still learning how to work the forum :)

Thank you.

Click on the link at the top of the page called "User CP".
On the next page that opens, the top box on the left column is "Control Center", and the first option in the box is "Edit Signature".

It allows you to play around with options and preview it before you save any changes. You can create plain text, colored fonts, links, etc.
