Pregnancy Ultrasound

Time for the ultrasound to confirm pregnancy. LOVE those tiny heart beats!

It’s finally time to get the girls, Deja and Doodle, in to have their ultrasound to confirm pregnancy. I/we are THRILLED that Deja is pregnant with more than a few puppies! Sadly, Doodle is NOT pregnant 😦

It is such a bittersweet moment when you can be so happy yet so sad at the same time. And then I think… This is EXACTLY why we bred both girls. No matter how much we might try to “control” things, Mother Nature will always have the last say in what will happen. I guess I don’t need to worry about borrowing another whelping box or making a second separate area for both girls. Still sad about Doodle, we are very excited about the upcoming Journey x Deja puppies! I had hoped we would receive an ultrasound photo but unfortunately, due to technical problems, I didn’t get one. Still, watching those little (very little!) heart beats was such a thrill!

Deja will now be started on a maternity diet to help her help the growing puppies. Deja’s due date is June 12, give or take a day on either side of that date. We will have a maternity x-ray done a few days before her due date to count “skulls and spines” to know exactly how many puppies to expect on the big day. I keep whispering in Deja’s ear, PLEASE have these puppies during the day! Alas, it is most common to have puppies in the wee hours of the morning. Still, I will keep whispering in Deja’s ear! One can hope, right?!

This will be Deja’s second litter of puppies; here is “Pixel”, a puppy from her first litter. 

I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day weekend! Whether you may be celebrating your mother or be a mother yourself, all mothers should be celebrated! That is exactly what we did for Deja; celebrated her as a Mother-To-Be! We can’t wait to meet her babies!
