Leidy: Temperature drop

October 18, 2010

This morning Little Leidy’s temperature has dropped to 98.8, so I suspect we will be delivering puppies tonight.  She thinks it would be more fun to deliver them in the den she is building in the run/pen adjoining the new puppy room than in the white, disinfected whelping box.  She is wrong — I’m not going to squat in the dust with a flashlight in the back yard to help her with the babies.  We’ll put an end to that plan.

I must go into the office for a while this morning, but will bring goats’ milk when I come back.  Then I’ll be camping at the house for the duration.  It’ll give me an idea about how this working from home shakes out.

    Chase’s chest puffed out when I told him. He says they will be beautiful, just like him…

    Best wishes for an easy, successful whelping.

    Best of luck everything goes well. Looking forward to seeing them all happily attached to nipples and/or sleeping.
