Real time updates will be posted here for those families awaiting Anna's puppies to arrive.
1/26/19 Saturday: As of now there are no visible signs of labor. Expecting puppies to arrive Sunday or Monday!
1/27/19 Sunday morning: Anna was active nesting throughout the night. She is still eating well and no signs of contractions. I do not believe it will be during the day today. Possibly overnight or tomorrow is more likely. I will keep you all posted.
Sunday evening: Anna is still doing well. She has been napping and intermittently eating today. She has been digging more in her whelping box. I still anticipate puppies overnight or tomorrow.
1/28/19 Monday morning: Last night was very restless (for us) but Anna slept very well. Her breathing has become more labored at times. We expect puppies sometime today or tonight.
1454: Anna still resting. The puppies are kicking up a storm. Super cute - you can see them pushing on her stomach! I can’t wait for them to arrive!!!
1826: O puppies wherefore art thou? We are eagerly awaiting their arrival. I hope they start to make their way into the world soon and I can bring you news. Oh the suspense!
1909: I wanted to let you all know there is no reason to worry. Dogs have a whelping window really rather than a Due Date like babies. We do not need to worry until late in the week. I’ve always been very on point though with my “Due Dates”. I feel she definitely should have them soon though based on her behavior. Can’t wait to share the news!!
1017: Puppies have not arrived. As soon as first one arrives I will write to you all! Everyone is doing well! Lots of movement and Anna is doing well!
1/30/19 Wednesday: Happy Birthday Puppies!!!
0546: Anna officially has stopped eating as of yesterday early afternoon. Her appetite this pregnancy has been excellent. As of now, there is still food in her bowel from yesterday afternoon which is a great sign. Could today be the day for puppies? We are hoping it will be today! If anything more progresses I will write more.
