Gloria is 8 days away from her estimated due date of August 4th.  She is really bulging at the sides - a bit of a comical shape to her - reminiscent of her Oct 2010 litter.  Took her for a walk this evening - thought we'd walk a slow mile - turned back sooner than planned - she was really waddling - no more walks for Gloria.  She has been very jealous of Jazz having pups and very curious towards the pups - I let her sniff them every day - she knows that she will have her own soon.  Her girth is 4 cm smaller than her last litter of 10 pups so we're estimating 7 or 8 - which would be a great litter!  She is such a good mom - can hardly wait to meet her pups.
