Belle is now in her 7th week and has this thing about eating my squash stems. She has chewed 3 hubbard squash off of their stems. With this I decided that maybe she has some type of vitamin deficiency and when I was in Missoula Wednesday I bought some dog food that was made of only bison and sweet potatoes. I am mixing it with her other food. Don't know if it is helping or not. I did find her in the box of harvested acorn squash eating the stems off from them last night. Maybe I should harvest the stems and sell as a pregnancy supplement. There's a thought. Major medical breakthrough for pregnant dogs. She's slowing down a bit and sleeping more. I took her for a long walk and she was very exhausted by the time we got home. They say that exercise is good for them to help with birthing. But, I am going to shorten her walks quite a bit.
