I can honestly say that we had already prepared ourselves to hear she wasn't pregnant as a few things had really worked against us and also she just wasn't showing any signs at all, which she had done early on in her last pregnancy. Finally our good friend Lyndsay who is now a qualified Vet was able to take us through and scan Ella. She didn't shave her at first, just put some gel on and tried to have a look. We saw nothing and I was sure it would stay that way, then up popped 2 little blobs, I said to Dean, "that's ok, two will do considering we weren't expecting any" Lyndsay then shaved a bit of her belly for a better look. 1,2,3 then 4 then 5 blobs popped onto the screen, wow were we shocked and very happy to say the least. It was fantastic having Lyndsay do the scan and share in our joy.
We better start organising things for this litter then.
