Phoebe was “exposed” to Chase’s FedEx box on July 17th, 18th, 19th, and 21st. At just shy of four weeks from the first breeding, she has puppy bumps. Carolyn was kind enough to post a photo of Phoebe’s svelte figure as it changes to matronly. To honor our commitment to equal rights, we are calling these babies Chebes rather than Chaselets. After all, as Kathy rightly pointed out to me, Phoebe will do all the real work. Hurrah! Phoebe plans to fly to New Mexico for vacation (well, sort of) on August 22nd. Puppies are due around September 22nd. Puppy party the weekend of November 21st.
