Right now! :help: Sadie, our Golden Retriever, got nailed by a dog from up the road - looks like a white shepherdX- sometime in November. I put her outside (she'd been in heat almost three weeks) just before bed, went in long enough to brush my teeth - and long enough for something else to happen. :flame:

Now, stupid me, I didn't write down the date (hoping against hope that "nothing" happened). Obviously, I misremembered, because I thought we had another week.

Sadie has been panting on and off all day, and is now licking herself like crazy, some mucous is coming out, so I guess tonight's the night.

Wish me luck! I've midwifed lots of goats, so I should be ok. Of course this is the night that DH goes to see his children and he won't be back until late.

We're up to four! She's doing good. I've got the neighbour's teenagers coming over soon, so I can get out to the barn and do chores.

So far, they are all a pale blond colour - they should be nice puppies.

Number five was born as I was doing chores. Thank goodness for the kindness of neighbours!

It's going to be a long evening. :)
