    I know its early days but Storm is now on day 35 of her pregnancy.

    she is putting on weight nicely. Her boobs are getting bigger and filling out.

    She has been off her food for a few days, had the runs yesterday which thankfully have now stopped.

    She is very very clingy and is following me around everywhere.

    We are all very excited and cannot wait to meet Storms babies x

    I'll have to watch your thread closely as I'll be starting my own soon as we're 2 days behind you. Our miss fluffles has got baldy boobies as she had a scan on tuesday but they couldn't see much, just blobs lol... waiting for the next one before starting her thread. We'll have to compare notes lol ;)

    OOOOOOOOOo puppies loverly jubberly, Get some pictures done so we can see ok. My puppies are 8 weeks old next saturday, one have already got a new home lined up and the new owner comes twice a week to see her. Had some phone me wanting the male for a companion for a 2 year old, and anothe wanting it for a birthday pressie for a 4 year old, and two others who work long hours, so they were refused politely. I was so nervous when my bitch was pregnant, hoping everything would be ok etc. and she was fine. she only had the two but was like a big blob carrying them. She used to follow me everywhere when the day got closer, she is a good mother. Hope yours go well too. good luck to you. xxxxxxxxxxx

    She is a really lovely looking dog, the puppies are going to be stunners. She is going to get real big. I had to put a suitcase along side my bed for my dog to jump up onto the bed, she still slept on our bed until she was too big to jump on the suitcase, then it was time for her to stay on the floor. And she only had the two. It is so exciting waiting for the day to come. Hope it all goes welll for you and Storm. Hope they all come out like bolts of lightening.....hee hee, couldnt let that one slip by. xxxxxxxxxxxx hey you wont have problems thinking of little pet names while they are with you, Bolt, Hail, Flash, Breeze, Rain, etc..............xxxx

    Storm seems to have doubled in size overnight bless her. I have started to give her a little bit of Nature diet in with her breakfast and she is loving it.

    She does look really big

    The average size is around 8 i think but most springers i know have about 6 on their first.

    Saying that our old Springer Whisper had a litter. her 1 and only litter and she had 12 pups

    She was fine. We helped by topping up the pups with a bottle and they were all great

    Storm is sooo good with our pups and i think she will be a great Mum and she has Miley to help babysit when she needs a break as Miley loves babies
