waiting for Winnie
Click here to see the Day One Puppy Photos!
Winnie has been mated to Manfred and we are also waiting breath abated hoping for Longhair pups to arrive. The projected due date is April 17th or soon after then. It is not an exact science. By all appearances, we are going to get this litter, but until they arrive and are thriving, we hold our breath. We don't want to make false promises. We know we are not the only ones waiting for the Longhairs to arrive.

Winnie and Manfred
April 18 @ 4:01 PM -- Winnie is settled napping and she has been very secluded and quiet today. We know she is getting close to whelping. I offered her an egg muffin and she ate it but her regular enhanced food dish she has been loving was rejected. She ate a big bowl for breakfast, but at lunch she didn't want anything except the muffin. I tried again a few minutes ago and it was the same thing.
April 18 @ 12:35 PM -- Winnie is still doing well. She had a good night, and ate a decent breakfast. She wasn't too interest in her lunch so I picked up the pan. She is resting.
April 17, 2021--Winnie is resting in her Whelp area. She is exhausted after a mid-morning walk. She has eaten two meals today--breakfast and lunch. She is very finicky as might be expected.
