Gaia is due to Give Birth Today…

Gaia should be ready for birth today, but no signs yet.

During the last three nights I have abandoned my husband and slept in a spare bed with Gaia by my side (well, uhm, yes, ON my bed). It would be too risky to leave her alone so close to the due date, I wouldn’t have slept a wink if I suspected she could be giving birth. However, NOTHING has happened. Last night she started getting restless and panting, so I thought Ahaa, here we go, but she was just too hot and fell asleep when I opened more windows to cool the room down.

What a dedicated working dog, however, I brought her over to the office with me this morning and on the way she caught scent of a rabbit in the long grass and went on point:

I guess in nature the bitch will have to try and feed herself right up till the last minute before whelping and as soon after the birth as well.

She is now lying in the office, not on one of our dog beds, but on the door matt. Maybe that’s a sign??? She is literally in the cold draught!
