Just a few moments ago, I went out on the deck and Dixie came along and plopped down near the top step. It was if she was thinking...'There is no way I am going down those stairs!
Coco decided to give it a try without her! This was actually an exciting event for me, because Coco has been very timid of stairs ever since we got her. Today is the first day that she has gone up and down the stairs on her own.!
|See that little rump heading down the stair? Dixie looks on.|
But anyway, back to Dixie....
Last night I was listening to her sighs as she lay on the floor next to me. I put my hand on her belly and could feel very distinctive movement inside. I pushed her furnishings aside and could actually see the outward pressings of little legs pushing along Dixies tummy. That is always so exciting to see! Puppies healthy and well!
Although the due date is quite different than last year, Dixie is finally looking the way a whelping dog is suppose to look! I was concerned last week that she looked on the small side. It made me think she only had a few puppies. But now she is looking quite as large as last year.
This past week the puppies have grown so much. Dixie's belly is bursting at the seams again! ....Come on Dixie! We're hoping for a beautiful litter soon:)
