    Cross your fingers for me! Renee is going in tomorrow morning for puppy x-rays to see how many are in there. She's decidedly rounder, and quite uncomfortable. Her due date is the 28th, so a bit to go yet, but getting excited. We are clearing out the basement this week and setting up the whelping pen (which takes most of the room :rofl1: ). My mom's all worried as Renee was restless and uncomfortable for about an hour last night, but I suspect she's just feeling the end-of-pregnancy miseries.

    My clinic isn't digital with x-rays yet (as far as I know - unless they changed recently), but I plan to photograph it to share :)

    I'm all nervous and excited. Last litter there were 11 in there (10 live, one stillborn).

    The photo is rather poor... I forgot the camera and got stuck using my cell phone :/ But there's a TON of puppies in there. The vet says 9-10 puppies, but there seemed to be 1-2 more heads up higher which might be puppies, or might be intestines... Whatever we look at it, we are definitely having a nice big litter.

    And here's the very preggo lady:

    I've decided to keep puppy buyers updated with a blog: http://wolfhoundpuppies.blogspot.ca/

    It seems the easiest way to keep in touch with everyone without a million emails. My mom usually helps me, so we should be ok there. While a live "puppy cam" would be cool, I'm on limited internet :( No way I could afford to broadcast live for 10+ hours... Ah well. I will be taking and posting photos as puppies arrive. We always take markings photos right away anyway - not that they stay the same, but when you have a little girl in the house who thinks removing collars is fun... Wolfhound puppies are not all that different when brand new :eek: We had several mild scrambles resorting who was who last litter thanks to my (then) two-year-old daughter. Hopefully this time she's old enough to listen when I tell her to leave the collars on.

    One of these days I will get a real website up... I did have one for my horses for years, but haven't ever made a dog one.
