Ysabel is now over 8 weeks pregnant & is now in the area where she could pup any time. I have been taking her temperature for the last couple days & it is steadily starting to drop which is encouraging, so we might have pups from her by the weekend. She is very well in herself & a bit jealous of Dolly at the moment with her brood already here, as Ysabel loves to Mother even if they are not her pups.
Lucy this Wednesday is 4 weeks from being mated, so is booked in on Thursday for a scan in the morning. I may make a fool of myself now because at first I felt that she may not of been caught due to her early heat & only one mating but I am airing on the side of her being in pups now as sure I can feel them as at this stage they feel like a string of beads. Please though do not put any money on my diagnoses & we shall wait to see what the scanner shows.
