So for those of you who are following along to see when the puppies arrive – we are still waiting. Ruby is thick as a football but still is jumping around and playful as ever. Dogs stay in heat for about 18 days. She was bred consecutively during her last heat cycle so within that band of time between end of September and October she will be delivering her pups.
As of now we have finished our tack room which is a large 10×30 space with beautiful wood plank oak flooring we just milled from the forest and full enclosure in our barn so the puppies will have a nice warm place to play and be (versus our utility room) LOL. We have the whelping box ready and installed. Now, all Ruby needs to do is have her puppies.
We’ll keep you all posted when the puppies arrive!
