Bath Time!

Bathing NINE puppies was quite the endeavor!

Puppies first bath… And I did all nine of them, WHEW! I’m so glad we did this yesterday (7/14/18) when it was 90+ degrees and sunny outside; today it is much cooler. We’ve already had a bit of rain and looks like we’ll get more?

Pups did awesome with their bath. It was a positive experience for all and something they will have done the rest of their lives so… I was very careful to NOT soak their heads or get soap in their eyes and as you can see in the vid, I AM quite obsessed about rinsing! My mantra re: baths… rinse and then rinse again! Pups then were air-dried outside in the sun (learning to be blown-dry is a lesson for another day/bath!)

 

A variety of still photos taken from their baths…

6 Days To Go!

Getting clean for upcoming puppies means… BATH TIME!

Six days to go before… PUPPIES!

Puppy pen is set up and ready; supplies disinfected and waiting. Miss Deja had a bath over the weekend with disinfecting shampoo… WHEW! Special care was given to  her belly/nipple area to clean all the cracks and crevices. The last thing I need to do is shave her belly to make it easier for pups to find the “milk bar”.

Deja’s ultrasound appointment is tomorrow, June 6th. We’ll get a “head count” (literally) to know how many puppies to expect on the big day! This will help in the throws of whelping to know whether she is done or not with delivering the puppies. (And if she acts like she is done but we know she still has undelivered puppies yet to go!)

It’s sort of funny… She doesn’t look overly big in these photos or when wet? In reality, she is HUGE!

I think we all are ready for her big day!
