    If I remember correctly Tegan was like that for quite a while when she had her litter. I remember phoning the vet and him saying it was normal:)

    just another quick question, she is a very good tempered dog although does tend to prefer me to my other half, if he comes down in the morning she can sometimes growl at him when he goes in the kitchen area, is that normal and will she overcome that as it just worried me for when the puppies are older and anyone comes to see them, ive told my other half shes just been protective of her little ones and hopefully she will relax as they get a little older.has anyone else had any problems like that?

    Hi Kristy, it's all perfectly normal & as the pup's get older your girl will get better with people around them. Totally agree with all of the above re discharge x

    I agree,
    Our bitch was in her whelping box when the gas man came to service the fire,she never let up growling and smiling at him,the pups were 2 weeks old,by six weeks she couldn't care less who came to see them ;)

    Hiya, the bloody discharge it totally normal hun! Don't worry! My girl had her litter 3 weeks ago and it's slowing down alot now! Yes my girl is very protective over her babies, she will calm down, we leave Coco out the back garden when people call over-It's much easier! (and less stressfull for her ;)) xx

    Teigan my chihuahua was always curling upto my hubby for cuddles even though she was my girl, but when she was pregnant towards the end, she wouldnt let my hubby stroker her or cuddle her, she would lower her head let her ears drop and stare at him. Even when she had the pups she would do it, but the puppies are now two weeks old now and she is allowing my hubby to come closer, although he wont put his hand out to smooth her yet lololololo oh to be a woman eh!!!! You dog is going to be fine dont worry, she will accept your other half again. if not get rid of the other half lolololol no only joking. xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
