    Hi everyone,
    I just wanted to let you all know how helpful I have found this section of the forum as my bitch Poppy is due this week....it is her first litter and also mine.
    I have been on here everyday for the last 2 weeks reading all your posts from start to finish. I have laughed at some of the posts :laugh: and I have cried my eyes out at some too:crying:, but I have learnt alot along the way!

    I thought I had a good strong bond with Poppy before we had her mated - OMG...the bond we have now has blown me away! She can read my mind and I can or try to read hers too. I can't wait for these puppies to come so I can see what an amazing Mum she is going to be.

    But what i wanted to say most was thank you to all of you for your knowledge and understanding on other peoples posts because it has given me a lot more to take away...
    THANKS:D

    Gosh you will have your hands full! Only a few days to go! Everything sitting waiting and ready?
    You say this is your first litter, have you assisted before or do you have someone you can call on if you need help?

    I take it you have already noticed that pictures of mommas and pups are a legal requirement on PF!? So bear in mind! :)

    I have my next door neighbour who has successfully whelped litters in the past and my mum in law who has done it her entire life so if I need them they will be there!
    But also my vet has given me her personal mobile number if I need her (my vet is wonderful! I love her Lol).
    And of course pics will be up as soon as humanly possible!

    Tis a fair amount of help thats for sure! When missy had her 1st litter I was lucky enough that my neighbour was a vetnurse- mind you I'm sure I had the poor woman tortured that first week!
    Is that poppy in your avatar; or do you have more than one of the lovelys!? Are you hoping for a keeper in the litter? You'll surely get your pick with 8 :D

    Good luck to you pop pop and of course poppy....do you know how many she's expecting?
    It was my vet that scanned her - does using a sheep scanner make a difference?
    I have heard people talking about it on here, but didn't really take much notice to be honest!

    Poppy is showing no signs as yet and she is lying flat out on my bed with me lol....her fav place.;)
