whelping dates question

2 posts in this topic

How late can one expect the actual whelping date to be from the anticipated date? I have a pup reserved from a breeded that was due Sept. 1st. I havent heard anything yet and the anticipation of a new pup has me all worked up it seems smile.gif I haven't contacted the breeder because I don't want to be a pest grin.gif But was wondering how late one could expect the pups to actually be born.

They are due 63 days past the last breeding... mine generally come on the 61st or 62nd day. Anything past 65 usually signals problems... I's imagine they are on the ground.

I highly doubt the breeder would find you a pest a week past their whelping date. I know when I have a litter, I don't need people calling me around their due date, but a week later would never be an issue. I usually put a call into everyone who has a deposit on a pup on the day they are born to let them know they have a pup on the ground.

Good Luck!

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
