Cloe has gone off her eating some, didnt want her breakfast...then while I'm cooking our breakfast, she threw up in the hallway looking to get outside...So she is a little off today, but hey she is a mother to be and it happens...prayers for her that she feels better later...
Almost at the half way mark
Well Cloe has picked up on her eating...So I started her "momma bowls" which consist of cottage cheese or yogurt with some fresh deli meat, one cooked egg and a little cheese...She is eating that every other day and eating twice the dog chow as before...still not a whole lot of weight gain yet but seems to be doing really well...been spending more time alone in the day back in her room away from the other pups...but very loving in the evening...So guess we will get her whelping box up in the next two weeks or so and let her get herself prepared again for her litter's arrival...Will keep the blog updated...
Day 17 after first mating...
Well, Cloe has slacked off on her eating...she has entered the "morning sickness" phase...She will not touch food in the morning and it started yesterday...She finally ate her breakfast around lunchtime! But all in all she is still playful with the other dogs, she tends to tire out and has been chilling out in her crate more often and for longer periods....and has gotten VERY affectionate in the evenings...nudging us for attention But she has never looked better! She sheds her fur in the winter time and gets a THICK FULL coat in the summer! Go figure! lol
2 Weeks after first mating
Well Cloe was a little testy as she was the last pregnancy...She just wanted to be left alone and likes to just go to her crate and lay there...she is still eating TONS that is different than last time...she went off her food for a couple of weeks and only grazed...she is EATING so much this time that I have to watch her intake so she doesn't get too heavy too soon! Her coat is so thick and full now too...she is looking at her best...Will continue to update her progress...and will post pics as she grows...Thanks to all of those who have sent in their testimonies to help with the website and the kind words were so nice...it has been quite the experience for us as well...Taking Ace and Emma for an outing next weekend...lots of people and activities good for their socialization...Cloe will stay home and just relax, I dont want to stress her out... hopefully it will go well! :)
Cloe's pregnancy 2012
Cloe was bred last week and so now we wait...She did so well with her last litter, pretty quick labor and delivery...I hope we have great results with this litter as well. They are due right around Mother's Day so that will make it that much more special for me! Hope you continue to follow updates on the pregnancy!
I'm a mom of 5 boys, all of which are grown and on their own except for my youngest that is 11 yrs. old. We live out in the country and love to spend time with our four legged children and seeing our grandpups! My husband always said I just HAVE to mother something! Wouldn't have it any other way!
