Angus is my very handsome boy with the longest eyelashes you have ever seen. And this is not just his mother talking, he became an AKC champion when he was just 9 months old. Roxie and Angus are litter mates ( I had eight pups my first time out of the gate, so to speak) and I am so happy to have them both at home with me

Temperature Drop

Not only was it much colder here on the farm when I woke up this morning, but my temperature dropped as well (to 98.4 degrees). This means that my pups are going to arrive soon (probably in the next 12 to 48 hours). I'm a bit restless, pacing and panting, with frequent potty brakes. That's kinda par for the course. This is my 2nd (and last) litter so I know a thing or two about birthin babies. I have my room all set with a beautiful home made wood whelping box (that is where my pups and I will hang out for the first three or four weeks). It's all outfitted with one of my many dog beds, a fancy towel we borrowed from a hotel in Argentina, a soft little ducky toy, and a fuzzy, comfy fake lamb wool thingy that will keep the pups nice and cozy after they arrive. There's also a heat lamp and heater to make sure it is nice and toasty. We have lots of towels and such all ready for the big event. Two of my pups from my first litter, Angus and Roxie, are still at home with me and I think they wonder what's going on with mom. I guess they will know soon enough. That's it for now. I'll write more after the pups arrive. I gotta go pee.
