MAX AND BELLA HAVE DONE IT AGAIN

Many of you know that we have German Shepherds. Two to be exact. Well, we had 9 puppies last January. We got rid of the last puppy in April, during Spring break. That doesn't seem like so long ago, now does it? We went to Disney the end of May and when we returned, I noticed Max sniffing around Bella, a lot. I mentioned to a friend that it seemed like she was in heat, but gracious, we JUST got rid of the puppies. DH called that very day and said, "btw- Daddy thinks Bella is in heat." To which I replied, "uh, yeah, I know." Then I began thinking and adding up the months. Much to my ignorance- dogs don't go in heat 6 months AFTER THE PUPPIES LEAVE. They go in heat RIGHT AFTER they leave. (ha) Actually, it's every 6 months. It seems like it got here so fast we didn't even have time to prevent it if we'd have wanted to, I don't think.

So, if you haven't figured it out yet, we are expecting puppies any time now. Tomorrow will be the 60th day if she got pregnant on May 28th. Not being sure, we will just have to watch and wait. Now that we know her cycle, she won't be getting pregnant in November this year, if I have anything to say about it.

We had a pretty easy time with the last litter. Bella was a great mom and she did her thing. We are hoping this time everything goes as well. Our family had a great time with the puppies and cant' wait to have that experience again!!
