Week Eight (Days 49-57) of Zene's pregnancy

The Goodies could be born at any time from now onwards, and we are prepared! Zene needs to avoid any rough and tumble play or stimulation which might lead to the onset of early labor, as ideally the pups should spend another week in the womb. Zene is doing some "nesting'"at this stage, and we can easily see and feel the puppies moving within her tummy when she's lying down.

Towards the end of week eight, Zene bitch will start producing colostrum, the forerunner to her nutrient-rich milk, and then the milk itself. Zene is hungry as can be and it is hard to not overfeed at this stage, it is not a good idea that she is overweight but we don't want her to be hungry. 

And then there were NONE!

Baby Gigi (Purple Girl) stayed at Moonlight Vizslas and became "Emery" and she's exceeded my expectations in every way ....
