Dory Has One Week To Go

March 18, 2013

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.
