I tried... just have a think about breeding mixed breeds, as I said, there is no average hip score for mixes.
It sounds like you really are doing the right thing mummyof2, being a purebred girl though I just can't wrap my head around people breeding mixed breeds. Owning them, fine, just not breeding. To each their own, I see nothing will change your mind about it.
Some bitches will give no signs at all and just drop a puppy on the floor, others will start nesting or become restless. it really depends on the individual dog.
I have had a Great Dane give birth in the bed with me and she looked nowhere near going into labor. Others had very obvious signs.
What signs at 58 days do you think your bitch was showing please?
So just a question, if you spent that much money on them, would you be willing to get a prefix and become a registered breeder?
Oh my, four pages of it to crawl through!
thank you crested love that was all i was after =] and no after owning 3 pure's which turned into savage dogs and were ment to be very healthy and all dying of either cancer or pancreas poisoning i much prefer my cross breed dogs not that im saying pure's are wrong they are not but each to their own i have never had a problem with my X's
if my dog was a pure i would be a reg breeder and she will be de sexed after this litter i will be keeping 1 puppy from her and the rest have loving screened homes to go to
devils advocate she was digging in her whelping box panting and being sooky no temp drop she had her xray while it was all happening and the vet said she wasnt in labour but her body was getting ready but the trip to the vet in the car may stop it and it must of the puppies are still very very active
Mumof, I had an oops litter last october. My bitch did not show any signs, discharge and just lay down when she was ready and out they came. I was watching her intently and my first indication was watching her "hook" I managed to get to her just as the first popped out.
