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!

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
