Meanwhile we're all waiting, waiting for Princess' pups to arrive. The gestation period for a dog is nine weeks/63 days. So if I calculate back to when she escaped - I remember the exact date - 9th July, she is due anytime this week !
Stanley, our fundi carpenter completed the floors, added a small edge at the door to prevent the new-born pups from falling out and added a door stopper so that the door remains slightly ajar.
The maternity ward in readiness for the arrival of Princess' pups sometime this week
From this angle you can see the small plank border on the floor and the door stopper (lighter wood) in the top third of the photo
Meanwhile Princess is clinging more and more to Michael, our day askari and whining every time she sees me! Poor little pup, who's going to have pups of her own!
Princess hangs around me if I go into the garden to photograh birds
Mmm, mum, this water is delicious!
So all that remains now is for the pups to arrive. I have our huge flashlight fully charged, gloves at the ready and instructions for Zechariah, night askari to call me if anything begins during the night!
Here's wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
