Jokes on us!

What the heck do we do for a whelping box?????


Someone more knowledgeable than me (which is anyone) will step in here
soon, I'm sure...but for a whelping box, a box or enclosure that will
contain the pups and is too tall for them to climb over...don't know
how big Neo is, so don't know how big this needs to be...you might
just put her somewhere out of the way right now on some clean towels
and worry about a box or enclosure later...it sounds like pups may be
early, you will likely need heat lamps at the least...if pups are
early, probably a greater chance of complications...can you call your
vet?

Talked with them twice, we set up a big crate and lined it wiith
cardboard (towels, etc.). Neo could get in & out, but not the pups.

All we can do is keep things warm in here.


Right, I sent that after you'd posted that you called them. Warmth is
the big thing, from my limited understanding. Sounds like you're
doing everything you can. Any more pups yet?

We have five at the moment...

I think #6 is on the way...


Oh my. Well, the vet did say "at least".

At least that means things must be going fairly smoothly...

Good lord! Where on earth was she hiding them?

Ahhh, well, I'm no puppy expert, but I think it's safe to say they're
not premature!

I think you mentioned a big butt...She's pretty fluffy, though, isn't
she? Fluff can hide anything...

Emmett was from a litter of 9, and each of them had a
different color collar (made of something sort of like
Tyvek).

Do you have a way to weigh them? You may also want to start putting some
sort of ID on 'em, so you can make sure that everyone is feeding, increasing
in weight, etc. (assuming they're hard to tell apart). I've heard that
people put different colored ribbons on them or paint the toenails in
different colors to assist with this.

I hereby nominate you the spay/neuter vs. the miracle of birth
argument spokesperson for the group!

Good luck with the birthing and all the pups. I hope they eat well on
their own so you don't have to bottle feed, that they are healthy and
cute and that your DH takes full responsibility since obviously this
is fate intervening to save him making a difficult decision he didn't
want to make!
