Here is our fat Dory at eight weeks pregnant. She is having trouble getting comfortable and thinks she is going to starve to death — both good signs. I finished assembling the whelping box so she is moving into her own room today. I’ll get the puppy cam mounted and ready to go next weekend — and on Saturday morning we’ll have the puppy-count-x-ray. I’m so excited to have puppies after a two and one-half year drought. You’ll note that her sides are wider than her haunches or her shoulders. Her bottom clearance is only a couple of inches.
Weekend Update: On Sunday at Louisville, the beautiful Scout was Best of Opposite Sex and the Chase/Scout daughter Ginger was Select to her mom. Pretty Ginger now has three Grand Champion Majors — all owner-handled by Kathy Metcalfe.
