Today is D-Day  - but no sign of puppies arriving anytime soon.  Gloria's temperature was 37.6 mid afternoon - still normal.  She still has a hearty appetite.  She measured another inch of growth - can feel movement when she is resting.  She has a hard time sitting in one spot - shifts her weight every 2 seconds - just can't seem to get comfortable.  Her resting mode these days in flat on her stomach with back legs stretched out behind her.  What day - got my new whelping box - the website said "assembles in minutes"

I worked at it for at least 2 1/2 hours on my own - Paige helped me for about 1 1/2 hours.  Bruce gave us some pointers as the box just doesn't look quite right.  Convinced they didn't send me the correct size of panels for the size of box I ordered.
