We are now getting in to the zone, where pups could arrive. Treacle is now 8 weeks since her first mating. Gestation for a dog is around 9 weeks, give or take a day for size of bitch, and size of litter they are carrying. Going from her previous two whelpings, we could have pups here Sunday. Her last litter she was mated from her eighth day of heat, over eight days, and came 62 days from her first mating. A close eye is now being kept on her. Bitches can whelp from 56 days on wards. The pups are moving vigorously now, and can be felt and seen moving.
“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.”
― Samuel Butler
