Taylor has started panting, and nesting this am. She prefers to whelp on Keaton’s bed in our kitchen. Good friend and long time breeder of Flat Coats, Nancy Schenck DVM of Destiny Kennels is driving up from Terre Haute to help with puppy watch.
Nancy arrived at noon. It is great to have someone else here for puppy watching so I worry less! In addition, Nancy has whelped lots of litter over years and her knowledge is invaluable.
3:30 pm-Contractions started and nestings behaviors have increased. Time to move to the whelping box!
