    Hi All

    Would like to ask everyone which date would you go by

    63 days from day of mating?

    or

    The date that was given to you when you had you bitch scanned?

    Info would be a great help to me as i have never had by bitches scanned before and some of my breeders friends are saying to go by 63 days from day of mating and some are saying to go by the scan i would like your views on this please

    Many Thanks
    Nat

    Hiya honey,

    I used the scan just to confirm the pregnacy, I think that's the best way to look at scans; I've not heard of many people who's scan has been spot on lol.
    Bet the house is very quiet :D:D

    I would go by the middle one but the best thing anyone can do is watch over your girl, Molly's temp dropped 24 hours before but she was never left along from about day 55, as Cav said they do like to surprise us and make early appearances :D

    I've got it down to 2 now Sammy & Bailey, I have to make the decision by Friday, going to do some proper pics and see if that helps me make up my mind :idea::idea:
    So pleased things are going well with the pups and their new owners, I had one here yesterday and they stayed for 3 hours; I felt very content & secure with them having a pup though x

    Yea right !!!!!

    If I had my way I would keep all 7 ;);)

    Bailey is very gorgeous although seems to be in the mist of any trouble :D
    Sammy has beautiful lines, wish I had a crystal ball :p

    Yep, I don't have a problem with them visiting, Angel; now called Roxy by her new owners have asked can they visit again, they made such a fuss over Molly as well, which I was pleased about.

    Poor girl we have hijacked her thread with our chatting :001_tt2::001_tt2:

    Sorry
