    forgot to add that to the check list -- camera ---- check

    I normally dont like taking pics of the pups right after birth - because some people who have never owned boxers - do not realize they are born with tails - and that you have to have them removed when pup is around 3 days old ( some people just dont get it ) but for all you BYCers I will get pics as they arrive - still not sure how many - she is not that big but vet seems to think there might be a pup or two hiding in her chest area waiting to drop once everyone starts to move out of the way.
    I am hoping for a small litter since its her first - that way she will not have to many to fuss about till she gets everything figured out.



    HAPPY HOLIDAYS

    My dog (i will not post the breed to avoid conflict) Had 15 pups her first litter. I was shocked because she didn't seem that big. You never know for sure how many babies are hiding in there. For her sake hopefully it will be a manageable number. It is amazing how naive people are. You would think if they were interested in a breed they would learn at least the basics of the breed you know like they are born with tails. DUH Good luck with your babies I hope they are all healthy little pups.

    hmmm if the breed your dog is what i think it is ( BTW i love that breed also ) my neighbor has them - he has one due to have pups any day , one that had 10 pups about a week ago, and another that had 11 pups about a week ago !!
    I really hope Abbey has about 3-5 babies that would be great since I already have homes for 5 [​IMG] hopefully she has at least that many or there are a few people that will not be getting a baby [​IMG]
