Rhoadi was mated on the 21st and 23rd September. Day 10 and 12 of her cycle.
We had pregnancy scan on day 24 but pups were not visible, the scan a week later on 23rd October showed 4 pups. Some maybe behind the others, so we wont know until the scan a few days before whelping. This is to determine the size, number and position of the pups to make sure everything is positioned correctly for birth and to be aware of any problems.
As the pups were not visible on day 24, it is determined that the conception was later. Could be 5+ days later. So first scan makes the pups 3 weeks old-not visible, second scan 4 weeks.
Pups will be due around the 28th November and ready 8 weeks after that. Approx. 28 January 2013.
