    Nov 4th - 10th for a Sheltie/Collie breeder.

    She has 20 dogs :yikes: but most are kennel dogs. She isnt a byb. Just has alot of dogs. The fun part? She has a sheltie litter due on the 10th!! Even if she doesnt whelp before they get back she said I could stay and help.

    Ive never whelped a litter before but I am friends with a couple of breeders in the area. Within 30min drive that can come help if I need. My mom is comming to take care of Katie so I dont have to worry about that.

    I whont forget the camera this time!

    Have fun. Fortunately, Collies and Shelties have bullet shaped puppies, so they are usually good free-whelpers. Hope all goes well!

    OMG! So excited for you. I'm hoping to see a sheltie whelping before too long myself. I felt like a dork asking Auggie's breeder if I could see the next one but she was totally game for it.
    Baaaaaby sheltie pics please! They are so cute, little piggy puppies, LOL.
