*May not be suitable for young children* (NIPPLES)

Okay, so no, I was totally kidding about it being unsuitable for children, lol. These nipples are only doggy nipples, perfectly okay for all ages. I just thought it was a nice title. "Why is she posting pictures of her dog's nipples?" you may ask. Well, it's not the nipples I'm posting, actually. It's the fact that Maya is preggers, and we are just so thrilled. No, we haven't had it confirmed by a vet yet, but I'm 99 percent sure. We've just been playing the waiting game for the past several weeks, but I'm completely confident that she is now. She used to have a flat tummy, seriously- it sometimes almost seemed concaved even. Today marks the beginning of her fourth week of pregnancy. In case you didn't know, most dogs have a gestational period from usually 60-63 daysish. That makes her at about the halfway point. We're so excited and anxious to meet the little ones. We will be having a 2D x-ray done in a couple of weeks to determine the number and sizes of the pups. It's so exciting!!! :)

Just look at that little round belly! So cute!!! btw, it's more noticeable in person than in these photos. You're probably thinking you can't see anything. Trust me, she's pretty big for her.


I hear that around Day 40, we'll be able to see/feel the pups moving around in there. And this is the baby daddy, Rumble (sorry you can't see his face too well). He's only 3.5 lbs., very cute! The only thing he didn't have that we were looking for was smaller ears; I was hoping to balance Maya's big ears with a male that had smaller ones. Oh wellsy, I guess the pups are doomed for big ears, lol. But really, this picture doesn't do the little man justice- he's soooo much cuter in person. I think his and Maya's babies will be sooooooo precious! And I've seen two of his babies from other litters, they are just precious! :)

Wow Congratulations... Do we know who the daddy is?

How can we sign up to possibly adopt a baby or are the keeping them all?

I am so excited for you and look forward to future posts.

Oh yes, I know who the daddy is. He's super cute and tiny! And I think he'll compliment her well; they'll be sure to be extra tiny little things too. And no, we certainly won't be keeping them all. And depending on how many she has (I don't think she'll have more than three, as she's really small), but we may already have homes for at least two of them. We should know how many she'll be having within a few weeks. It's so exciting!
