We’ve got the whelping box setup and ready to go, and we took Astraea out for a little photo shoot in the woods. You can find the pictures on our Instagram and Facebook. Astraea’s due date is one week away, and her puppy count x-ray is this Thursday. I’m sure by Thursday evening we’ll know whether to do an elective c-section or attempt to let her whelp naturally. The pictures don’t really do her size justice. She is BIG for her petite frame for still having a week to go, but she carries it well! We’re praying for a smooth final week with lots of rest, because there won’t be much if any after the pups arrive!
