Call the Midwife

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.


  1. You are well prepared Magic!
    In the olden days it would have been hot water and towels and no gas and air :-)
    Wouldn't it be nice if more brothers and sisters for Trilby arrive today.
    Hope all goes well for you Magic.

    Very Happy birthday wishes to Trilby xx
