    Freyja's thread

    Here she is looking very errrrrr unpregnant at nearly 8 weeks gone.

    [​IMG]

    This is her second litter and I have spoken to her breeder who owned her when she has her first litter and she said that they weren't sure until 8 weeks that she was actually pregnant. She is doing the same again this time.She was only mated once as the stud dog lives in Northern Ireland and was only over here for the day for a show. The pups are due on july 4th.

    She has a very wide rib cage and if you look at her from above she is a lot wider across her ribs than normal. Thats the problem with whippets they do carry them under their rib cage. We had a bitch that once at 7 weeks looked very much like Freyja at just over 8 weeks she was like a barrage balloon so big she could hardly work and 8 1/2 weeks she whelped 10 pups.

    She has won 3 green star majors in Ireland and was just short of being a champion on the old system when she was taken out of the ring. Her sire was BOB at crufts 2008. The dog she has been mated to won the dog CC at crufts this year and his dam was BOB at crufts 2002.

    All she wants to do is sit with either me or OH. If I put her out for a wee she looks at me as if to say have I really got to go out and she really doesn't like this heat. All the signs are that she is pregnant theres just not a lot to see.

    Erm? I didn't say I was getting one.
    I said I'd love one.
    Theres a SLIGHT difference there.
    Besides I already have a black lab who loves all my bunnies.
    So think before you call me daft thankyou.
    I might be young but im not stupid.

    I'm not calling you stupid I just said I thought it would be a daft idea for anyone to have a whippet who has any rabbits. all said and done they are sight hounds and they don't differenciate between pet and wild rabbits so don't jump to conclusions. A whippet is a totally different dog to a labrador

    I would love to keep 1 OH says I can't but 2 are going to the stud dog owner and 1 has a definite home near to Glasgow. If she has 4 I will hopefully keep 1.

    She is so cute!!!

    Hopefully I won't miss these puppies. I always seem to have to do something and then miss all the puppies.

    As I have 13 at the moment any way 10 of them being whippets I'm hopping he wont notice if I accidently forget to sell one. You can garrentee when they arrive he will fall in love with 1 and he/she will stay.
