Super-Midwife to the rescue!
I'm sure she's thinking "If
someone would only take that
beach ball out from under me..."

Wow. What else is there to say? We knew she was getting as big as a barn. But four? Finally
Roberta called and said "This might be the time". Fido tended to get listless last time. She talks alot,
stands with her head in the corner, and looks generally like she would rather be in Philadelphia. I got
home in time to see that she was in fact miserable, and tonight was going to be the night.
If you would like to discuss the possiblility of owning one of these fine animals, please email Roberta!
They are of  registered stock and all four will be AGS registered. Additional pics available.
I layed down in the hay with Fido. Is this a
shana punim or what? She was so miserable.
Look at her closed eyes and droopy ears.
