May 24, 2014  Hi, I'm Linda and I had this great idea to train and raise labs for my retirement fun.  This is my very first web site experience and my very first blog. They always say there needs to be a first before their can be a second. Brilliant! Anyway so far this has been a wonderful experience and looking forward to having fun with my labs.


For a few weeks we couldn't even tell of she was pregnant.  At 28 days we took her to the vet and they did an ultrasound and I got to  see those little blobs that were growing into puppies.  Very exciting.  The tech counted seven and honestly I couldn't see all that he was seeing.  Did see a few that were for sure babies. Other than being tired, her pregnancy is going well.  She drinks a lot of water and she then has to wizzle a lot.  Reminds me way back when I was expecting.  She did throw up once.  So, don't know what caused it, but it didn't last. Her is getting round now.  She is in her 6th week with 3 to go.  With her roundness her legs are getting shorter.  My husband calls her the dashador.  Really hope it doesn't give her a complex.  Love our pregnant Belle Starr. Shadow on the other hand could care less.  Typical male...   No worries... Couldn't do it without those males.  Love them.
