Pieta is growing! She is now 2" bigger around her middle than when she was bred one month ago. She is slowing down a little, but her appetite has returned. It's too early to feel puppies or see any movement but that time is coming. This weekend she will get a good haircut so all we will have to do is a belly shave right before whelping.
Here is a picture of Pieta (in back) with her mother, Msabu, in front. Msabu has always behaved like the elder dog so we'll see what happens when Pieta is also a mom.
