Mango, Day 53 days (pre-parturition)
As we head into the home stretch, our beautiful girl is losing her figure and the look on her face tells us she knows it! Mango is slowing down and prefers to observe her canine playmates rather than participate in play.

There isn’t much room for food in Mango’s tummy these days. The puppies have grown so much that we are feeding her smaller meals throughout the day. She is rather picky in the mornings, but we can usually entice her to eat by adding some roast chicken to her breakfast.
This past week, we set up the whelping box for her to get used to, however it seems that everyone has tried it out with the exception of Mango. She is still determined to have her babies outside under a spruce tree she has chosen!
We are just trying to make these last ten days as comfortable and stress free as possible for Mango. She will continue to have light activity and of course, carry her ball in her mouth just in case we can play a little game of retrieving.
Stay tuned ……
