    Thats brill to hear as well :D

    That was my main reason for having Molly's litter, I hope Tia continues to flourish and I will be able to show her, although it's too early to tell yet.

    Well by the looks of it we are going to be kept busy with gorgeous pups in the next couple of weeks..... I love it :p

    My girl Karma is about 8 weeks along, but I am not sure. I feel as well as see the puppies move, and she has been having a lot of discharge here lately. Could anyone help me figure out if I am correct on my guess?

    Do you not know when she was mated?

    What colour is the discharge?

    Unfortunately no I don't know when she had mated. And the discharge is clear.

    If she has a clear discharge, she could be close to labour beginning.

    If you don't know her due date, it does make it difficult. A pregnant bitch should not really be left unattended for several days before her due date. Are you able to be with her?

    I would have your whelping box ready and be vigilant for the signs of early labour which are digging/nesting, restlessness, and sometimes loss of appetite/vomiting.

    What breed is she and what breed was she mated to?

    She is always with me since we found out she is pregnant. She is a Boxer, Pitbull mix. I have a whelping box, but she wont go near it other than to pull what's in it out and up on to the bed.
    I have noticed that here lately she has been very restless and not wanting to eat her breakfast but will eat it at night along with her supper and then eat her brothers food.
