Beaver? Water Rat? Platypus? All of the above? I haven't met an ACD yet that doesn't like the water. Hope she stores all this lovely nesting material in a safe place.

You haven't met Rody Jane. But then she is an ACD/stinkwad mix. :p:

Nevermind, I found what I was looking for. Nice Boy.
Thanks for posting all the important health info. Please post lots of pictures when the little ones come.

Monica

Ok Tom who? Sorry I have been gone for a bit and am behind on some things. Is there a web page where I can see tom and Muffin and maybe pedigrees? I like to keep up with these things. Cheryl just shared a picture of Flintstone, is he as lovely as he appears in the pictures. what a nice red speckled boy.

*lol* i guess that's one of the pics i took when i went to see jutta to mate muffin to tom.. yes, flint is a stunning young male with great movement and a outstanding temperament.
tom of the seven hills country is his full name and is is flint's and fame's sire ;)

you will find more information on tom and muffin and a couple of pics of each when u follow that link: http://www.winddrover.com/page0/page173/page173.html

'WindDrover At Long Last' should be the name of the very first pup born.

Jan and John at Chevland
10-13-2009, 08:52 PM
Yahoooooo!!!! Great news Karin! I'm soooo looking forward to seeing your babies grow.:)

Some "A" names come to mind, but I'm sure you'll be inundated with names from others on this forum.

These are Cattle Stations, mainly in the Northern Territory (that's where I lived for 20 years) but if you decided on that theme, a google search will list others in Australia I'd imagine:

Anna Creek Station
Alexandria Station
Avon Downs
Austral Downs
Alroy Downs

A couple of songs come to mind:

Angel Eyes (Bryan Ferry)
Angel of Harlam (U2)

Muffin is one gorgeous pregnant girl! :pawup: Those photos are just beautiful Karin. You must be so excited. I bet it's hard to not treat her with kid gloves during the pregnancy but I guess no dogs in the wild ever got special treatment did they? and dogs have evolved and thrived through the centuries.

winddrover
10-14-2009, 06:37 PM
Muffin is one gorgeous pregnant girl!i have to admit i think her rather splendid ;)
can't wait to see how she develops when she had the babies.. she will be a sight to see i reckon. even more matured than now..

no kid gloves now but i can't promise i won't spoil her rotten with heated blankets, extra tidbits and such when she starts getting big and the little ones move around :lol:
(and i'm not going to tell you that she sleeps in chrissy's bed right now... it REALLY was just her turn this time!!!!!)

Hey Karin, apart from the names I suggested in my previous post, maybe you could do a series (if it hasn't already been done over your way):

Hey there Karin - How is Muffin travelling with her pregnancy? Any fat photos of her to share?:D

winddrover
11-07-2009, 10:16 AM
right... we just did an x-ray on her yesterday.. had the intensity pretty low AND her abdomen is full of fluids... well.. we seen 6 pups for sure.. there might be a no.7 hiding behind the ribcage, we seen a shadow but can't tell for sure. didn't want to crank up the intensity just to know.. so it's 6+ :D

could be more than 7 though as we only did a side shot....

only got a pic from 5 days ago which is a loooooooong time in the final stage she's way bigger now and the short distances she still trots when we go for a walk she has to turn her knees out to get them past belly.

we set up the whelping box last weekend and banned poor linus from the bedroom.
muffin and i developed this little ritual:
every night i go to bed i put a handful of treats in her whelping box. she goes in there, eats her treats and lays down on my command, observing me closely (mind you, the box is RIGHT beside my head). as soon as i lay back and pull my blanket up, she gets out of the box, into my bed and starts snoring away happily... i just hope she'll not going to try to deliver IN my bed... :angel:
i feed her 5 - 6 times a day as she can't eat normal quantities. her nipples are HUGE already and the last pair of teats hangs pretty low already..

here's our big mama, at day 47

http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/8738/dsc0001rb.jpg (http://img5.imageshack.us/i/dsc0001rb.jpg/)

and just to see the difference.. that's her with no pups aboard
http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/7185/muffinjuly2009kopie2.jpg (http://img22.imageshack.us/i/muffinjuly2009kopie2.jpg/)

i told her to keep them in for at least another 6 days, then she's free to pop them out.

She DOES look ready to POP! :pawup: I know you must be so excited! When I worked at the Vet clinic it seemed like there was always at least one more pup than what showed up on x-rays. ;)

Can't wait for the birth!
