Puppies are the Perfect Time Wasters
The first few days are the most concerning, not just for the new mum, but for everyone. It is all new and scary and for the first few days all routine is upside down. The other dogs are kept out of the way (they are curious about what is going on, but as soon as they smell the pups, they keep their distance).
All looked fine and settled at night, but when I came in to the “maternity ward” this morning, Gaia had moved all the pups on to a spare blanket under the table next to the whelping box. Of course I got a bit worried that she might have suffocated one in there, but all was perfectly fine.
I put them all back and soon all was peaceful again. I put a blanket half way across the whelping box to help her feeling secure.
