We have estimated that lily is approximately 6- 7 weeks pregnant.  Apparently it is difficult to tell whether a dog is pregnant much before that.  She has enlarged teats.  She tends to get these after she has been on heat usually so that is why we were unsure that she was pregnant.  Lily’s mannerisms haven’t changed much.  She has always been quite a clingy dog and likes to spend time with us.

Dogs are typically pregnant for 9 weeks so we do not have long to go.  We are clearing out the back room, which we use as a dumping ground as a nursery for the puppies.  I am back at work on Thursday after my back operation but only working mornings so hopefully we will be around when Lily goes into labour.

We have done quite a bit of reading on the subject.  Dogs suffer from morning sickness.  Lily has had a bit of a wet mouth, I think that is maybe down to her mouth watering as she felt sick.  Other than that we have nothing to report. I will update my blog as soon as we have any more news.
