    Here's my girl Bijou at day 57 -her tummy has dropped over the last couple of days and she's very tired she's due next Monday but this is going to be a big litter so I've a feeling those pups may come earlier ;)

    She's lovely - how exciting some more puppies to be watching for on PF. Hope all goes well when her pups decide to make an appearance.

    How many are you thinking she's going to have?

    She doesn't look to huge to me, do you know roughly how many you are expecting?

    Good luck :)

    Here she was pre pregnancy -

    [​IMG]

    you can see from my first picture how much her underline has dropped and her back is dipping which means the pups have moved down - she was scanned at 4 weeks and we saw 9 pups with more 'probably' hidden up under her ribs :eek:

    Yes this is the intervariety mating - I'm really looking forward to seeing what these pups turn out like - I'm not expecting her to have any Tervueren as she is homogenous for black so should only produce Groenendael - but nature has a way of throwing a curve ball so we shall see ;)

    6-8 is the breed average - Bijou had 9 last time but one was born dead ( it was a 'swimmer' ) so she's obviously very fertile ! - She was sick again this morning and panting a little but ate her breakfast so we'll wait and see what happens today ( day 60)

    Ok - so we're now on day 64 and STILL no pups - her mucous plug has come away , and she's been doing a fair bit of panting but she's stil eating like a horse and wanting to go out for her walks - her temperature yesterday went down from 37.9 to 37.4 and then rose a little yesterday evening to 37.6 - and this morning she's been quite restless - today is her due date according to the scan but if she has not had them by the end of today I'll take her along to the vet tomorrow for a check up as this is I think a big litter and I'm just a tad worried about inertia .
