    Hi Guys

    For all the people that have been following sophie thread thankyou for your support and help so far

    Sophie is near the time when the pups are due

    And she has not be so well 2day so maybe it wont be long

    She had me up at 5.15am
    was sick at 8ish (just bile)
    had alittle breakfast at 10ish
    and then brought that back up about a hour later
    her temperture at 8ish was 37.7
    she is drinking alot and weeing as well

    So the pups might be here in the next 24/48 hours !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Another thing to look out for is runny poo!
    The temp would normally go down to the 36 mark.
    Restless ness and digging are very normal signs!
    What your girl is doing she could do for a a while before anything happens good luck!

    Thankyou :)
    Was wondering about this temperture drop!
    When lilly had her litter her temp was 38.2 in the evening of day 63 and 37.3 in the morning of day 64 and it never changed through out the day much and she started having hers at 4pm that day just before that her plug went and she was pushing with 10mins of her plug going then the 1st pup was here within another 10 mins

    So am i just looking for low 37 and under 37 and then the digging will start

    Things can move on so quickly and some bitchs do not have a temp drop do not dig and eat up till the last minute!

    I would be looking at 37 and under yes but 36 would be promising :)
