Link is growing. She is taking things easy, but that could easily be caused by the warm weather we are having. X-ray scheduled for May 6th, hope we can get a good count. Whelping box will be arriving tomorrow, so we can start making a cosy place for the pups to be born.
We are pregnant!
Ultrasound confirmed that Link is pregnant with at least 3 puppies, but probably more. Since we didn't put her on her back (=less stressful), the puppies were more difficult to spot, so the number may be wrong. We are soooooo excited! Time to put up the announcement on the ISSDC and NSBR web sites, and start preparing the whelping area shortly. Next stop: X-rays a few days before giving birth.
