Still waiting for puppies...

We are still on puppy watch here. We are being very cautious with this birth and so is the vet. He has assured us that she will deliver before Monday...but then he felt sure she would whelp before now...LOL! Another x-ray was taken yesterday and we thought we saw 7 spines this time...the anticipation is high here on the farm! We are pretty much housebound...someone is always with her - the boys are sleeping with her at night and I am up several times at night checking on her. She is a very sound sleeper and has given us a few tense moments when we haven't been able to wake her up easily. Here are some pictures of Josiah (12 years old) and Freckles. Since Snowball's death on Saturday he has stayed very close to Jeremy's dog Freckles. As you can see, she appears to be FULL of puppies! He is looking forward to picking a puppy for his very own. I am so pleased with his brother's generosity...Jeremy has a very tender heart towards his brothers (and towards Mom for that matter!) I am so thankful to God for my boys...I love them all so dearly. If you think of us over the next couple of days, please keep us and Freckles in your prayers. We are asking for a safe delivery for Mom and puppies! Thank you all! Blessings!

  1. Oh my goodness...look at that bulging tummy! I wonder if she's as uncomfortable and anxious to get it over with as we humans are during our last week of gestation. :) I will surely be praying for a safe and healthy delivery for Freckles and the pups. Can't wait to see photos of the new litter!
