Now that the arrival of the pups is just around the corner some forward planning is called for. The things that need to be done are
- Prepare whelping box
- Coloured collars for identification purposes.
- Scale for weighing.
- Notebook for logging times of whelp and sex and collar colour of each pup.
- Make sure that my vet’s number is ready and on hand in case of emergency. There’s no indication that there will be a problem at this stage, but there’s no harm in being prepared.
- Prepare list of names. As this is the “D” litter, all the names must start with “D”.
Also, as I intend following the Bio Sensor programme with the pups, I need to make sure I know as much as I can about the programme. I will be writing about it in another post.
Cassie is finally starting to show and if I carefully feel her belly I can sometimes feel movement – just flutters, but definitely movement. Also her teats are swelling, and if squeezed gently will express a drop of white liquid. I have stopped training with her, although she is just as gung-ho as ever, but we are going for long walks every day. We are also still playing clicker games which she always enjoys.
