Puppies are due in about three weeks. Leidy can’t (doesn’t want to) go up and down the little step to the patio. She’s decided the dog door/ramp are much more comfortable. She’s no longer the leader of the pack racing to bark at the dogs next door — she brings up the rear. She still barks as if she’s pretty fierce, but she’s a lot slower these days.
I shot this photo while she flopped next to my computer desk. She’s more companionable (with the human) these days, seems to take more naps. I’ve increased her food a little because I think she’s nurturing a bunch of babies. It’s very difficult to get photos that show how big she is. Her girth is up to 24″.
