Ella had her temperature drop to 36.6 at 10am Friday morning and this was followed later in the day with the start of labour. Around 6pm she became more unsettled and was frequently needing to toilet. I made her a bit of a den with a quilt on the floor in our bedroom which is where she basically stayed until her waters broke and she started to push. That was at 2:05am, so we got her to the whelping box to give birth. She managed it very well, the last two puppies were a little harder to whelp because they were breach but she got them out.
She was rather funny during the whole thing, we swear if you had offered her a 3 course meal she would have eaten it. That would be the last thing I would be thinking about while trying to give birth.
Welcome to the world little ones.
