It begins !
Must be quick. Smudge at 1.20 pm just gave birth to her first pup, a girl and although 3 days early weighing in at just over 8 ounces which is a good weight for a full term pup. I've been up all night and this first little girl decided to come backwards, which is a bit harder on the bitch, as they take a little longer to dilate with a blunt bum tapping against the cervix. Now the wait to see if she can expel the rest of the litter without intervention, but we now have a starting point to work from.
I'm on my own at the moment, but will update as and when.
