I took Zen's tempeture for the first time on Friday; I usually start the temp taking one week before. So now it begins to feel serious! Poor Zen just sees the thermometer in my hand and tries to hide.
So I am in my nesting stage! We set up her whelping box and this started me off on a cleaning/clearing out spree! The charity shops should love me as I brought them bags and bags of stuff. I mean just how many "dog" towels do I need? And don't get me started on how many duffel bags, tote bags, briefcases and pieces of luggage we have hidden all over the place! Off to the charity shop for them!
One minute I look at Zen and she seems huge and the next time I look she doesn't seem big. So I really don't know how many pups are in there; we will know soon enough. My sister is now not allowed to have one until she learns her sheltie colour genetics...she mentioned last night that she didn't want to pick out a new collar for the puppy until she knew what colour it would be!hahahahahahahaha If a sable pup pops out of Zen we are in big trouble! And the Kennel club might have some strong words to say to me.
While we were on the phone talking about colours of puppies; Zen came over and handed me her skunk toy. So I decided it was a sign and if by some strange chance Zen has a black and white puppy... it is mine! (dont' worry guys it is highly unlikely!)
We are expecting Johanna and Marianne tonight and really looking forward to seeing them both along with the gorgeous sheltie One. They are bringing two BLUE dogs with them also (BC Spooky and sheltie Biscuit) but we won't discuss the fact that there will be blue dogs in my house. Yuck! ;-)
