Started taking Treacle's temperature today, as don't want to be caught out, as she could of took from an early mating. The temperature in a bitch drops just before birth, around 48 hours before, bases out and when it starts to come back up, birth could be within 12 hours. She is looking reasonably big now and she has just slowed up half a stride outside running about with the other dogs, although she still likes to give me kittens as she jumps down off the patio wall.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
