Copper had 10 puppies in the wee hours of this morning. She birthed 11 total, but one wasn't too lucky. However, we still have 10 beautiful boxer babies at our house. And human mama is worn out!! I am off to take a nap now. Just wanted to share our good news. :)

It's now 6 weeks until this little linebacker is due. I swear, I feel like he's a prisoner who's trying to dig a hole to escape out of my belly. Either that or he's practicing being an offensive or defensive linebacker. We don't have a kicker or a soccer player in here, folks. Oh no. We have a big ol boy pushing away at the inside of my stomach. He's already in training. We went to the doctor today and all is well. My weight gain is doing ok. I could cut back on the sugary products that I ingest, but where would the fun be in that? My blood pressure and measurements are all well. They say my belly is growing right on target, but I think they might be just telling me that to be nice. We all know I'm an absolute cow. Or I've swallowed a pumpkin...... because seriously, my belly is about that size. It used to be the size of a basketball. We passed that a while back.
Our dog, Copper is expecting puppies any day. Yes, we are crazy. Let's just clear that up right now. But, crazy though we may be, puppies are on the way. I do feel sorry for Copper, though. I only have one rambunctious little dude to contend with. We don't yet know how many Copper has. It feels like an army in there! And she has to deal with them moving all over the place. I know she's miserable as well and won't we be glad when we can have our bodies back? Oh yeah.
Last night, I had Mike take a picture of me and Copper. In this one, you can see how big her belly is. I'm sort of hidden. All the better. I may take another picture of the belly so you can appreciate just how huge we're talking here.
Once the puppies are born, I'll post pictures. They will be for sale, so anyone wanting an AKC registered Boxer, let me know. They will be available about 7-8 weeks from the time their born (which like I said is any day). The actual human baby will be here by then so we'll for sure be ready to let them all go to a new home!!
