More embarrassing photos - oh no :-( My peeps have been going into overdrive with preparations for my pups birth. I thought they were talking about a Red Nose Day joke when they mentioned shaving tummies but no - it was me getting ready for the day. Take care with that little shaver Judith! The birthing room is getting stocked up again:
My whelping box with the polyester fur and the red heat-pad for my pups to rest on when they aren't snuggled with me. The white rail is there in case I roll on a pup accidentally - as if I would!
There is a removable door with a window which can keep us all safe and warm when needed.
Piles of newspapers - printed and unprinted - and not for me to read but to keep things nice and clean in the box when my pups start moving about...and making a mess. So there's also plenty of these too :-)
and just in case something went wrong and I couldn't feed my little ones my peeps have some stand-by provision for that too.
So paws crossed that everything's OK for me - hoping to have my little ones this weekend and just so Trilby knows I've not forgotten (as if I could) on this day last year (15 March) I gave birth to 4 little ones including Trilby so she is celebrating her birthday today - with another Cherry Barkwell and a stagbar:
I may not be posting for a day or two but Leigh will keep you up to date on what's happening here.
