Ok, this whelping has drug out MUCH longer than I anticipated. She is clearly feeling every tinge but is nowhere near her final stage. She has spent 90% of the day in my bedroom. When I bring her downstairs, she begs to be back up in my bed.
The contractions are evident – and she is doing a lot of stretching to help get the pups into place. We have made some visits to her whelping box throughout the day too. Now it is just a waiting game…and so we wait….
