I spent the day cleaning out the Whelping room.. Wow had it gotten filled with clutter in the past year! Nickel spent most of the time laying directly in my way. She seems to know that this room is for her. Not too much of a surprise since she was born in this room! and her sister delivered her litter in it last year... same whelping box. Of course last year Nickel spent a great deal of time watching her sister, Ico's litter growing in the very same spot. I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't some residule smell on the box.
Nickel practically battled for her position while I rebuilt the whelping box. LOL... she really wanted center stage this time round ;) I repainted the lavendar walls; this time we have pink and blue (it's left over paint from the Pink Poodle Parlor and exterior house paint). At least we know that these pups will be frugal :)
Here's Nickel hanging out in the Whelping box last year... She certainly was ready to be a mom. As you can see.... she spent a lot of time outside the box as well...
