Tue 3 Sep – Mon 9 Sep
- Dam begins to spend a lot more time grooming herself.
- Her breasts become swollen as her milk forms.
- Nesting begins as she looks for a place to have her puppies… Make sure you have her box or spot ready..
- The dam may not have as big of an appetite during this period. Her abdomen can be crowded with puppies.
- You can feel the puppies move now.
- See if you can get her used to her whelping box
Things are progressing nicely as the girls enter their 8 week of pregnancy. I can normally feel movement towards the end of this (the 8th) week. I love laying next to them and feeling babies kick. I will for sure get video as soon as the movement is visible. D
