Could This be It?......

OK folks, Could this be it? Roxie is acting funny this morning. She's following me around like crazy and I noticed she walking funny. I managed to get her into her "swimming pool", otherwise known as a welping pen. She seems to be in labor. I got her to lie down and as long as I stay with her, she will stay there. The minute I move she wants out. I'm supposed to leave town tomorrow for four days for a business trip. My husband is not thrilled about this and lets me know in the slightest of ways. He doesn't have the best "mothering" instincts around and I'm not sure how he will be able to handle Roxie and her new puppies by himself. If I hadn't already prepaid the convention fees and hotel, I might consider not going. Oh well, this will just be another new experience for us. Wish us luck and I'll keep you posted.

UPDATE: False labor. No puppies yet. I'm leaving for four days tomorrow morning and won't be back till Sunday afternoon. Please pray that those puppies wait till I get home to come. For that matter, pray that Jennifer doesn't have her baby while I'm gone.

How exciting, maybe she will have them before you head out. You will have to post some pics of the babies once she has them.

Feel ok going but i love dogs and i couldn't leave. but the vet is a phone call away for him if he needs help. They are always on call but cost some money. Hope everything comes out ok for her and if you decide to go your husband. He has friends too. Might be a good experience for him but for safty make sure she is ok afterwares. some might not make it and some ma dogs reject them i here so good luck

Thanks for the thoughts everyone. We do have a friend of my husbands staying with us and he doesn't go home until right before I get back. He seems to think he can handle the puppies. I still hope that Roxie waits till I get home.

Keep those good vibes and prayers going strong until at least Sunday when Lucy returns. Roxie is listening; you hear that Roxie, wait till at least Sunday.

Hi Everyone, I'm back and Roxie is still literly hanging in there. I found out yesterday that this will be her third litter. She should be a pro that this by now. I don't know how much longer she can go, but she is uncomfortable and she follows me around everywhere I go. Wish us luck and I will keep you posted.
