Minnie is our papered Alpine:

Mac is the papered Alpine she had a date with:

I think she is asking him where the flowers are.


She has 150 days on June 1, 2, 3 or 4. We are just waiting for a sign. Ligs are getting softer. Udder is not full enough. She will probably pick Thursday because that's when DJ and I are planning to take one of our dogs to the doggie ophthalmologist in Vegas (we live in So. Utah). This is a 4-5hour trip each way. Sam dog has glaucoma and is loosing his sight. :( Very sad he is only 5 and a story for another time.

Well I hope she has some :girl: :girl: for you! I don't think she'll wait for you to get back though. :wink: But there's always hope!

And I'm so sorry about your dog. I have an 18 year old mutt who is loosing his sight and hearing. :( I will pray for you!

I think Minnie will only have :girl: This is her first time. The picture of her above was taken only a week ago. If she has 2 they will be small.

Thank you all for thinking about my dog.

Minnie has been having very small contractions. The kind that make a goat go :? Her ligs are softer than this morning, her udder has not filled out and she has no discharge. I don't know if she will go tonight or not. I will be the one to get up during the night to check on her. Tomorrow DJ will take Sam dog by himself to the vet. If DJ has to get up in the middle of the night to help with the birthing he will call and reschedule the vet appointment.

Where in Utah do you live? My mom lives in St George and she goes to Vegas all the time. I was just wondering.

UPDATE: Not a lot of progress. Ligs still squishy, udder not full and I can still see little contractions that make her go :?

I live about 25 miles north of Cedar City near Parowan out in the middle of nowhere on 20 acres with my husband, 3 dogs, 28 chickens, 25 baby chicks, 2 baby turkeys, 3 does, 1 wether kid, 1 doeling and another kid on the way. I love it! :love:

Update: No change! Minnie was with the buck January 2nd to 5th, 2008. Now 150 days would make it between March 31st and June 3rd. :hair: If she doesn't birth soon when do I need to take action and what would that be?

Today will be day 154. She is a bit more swollen, has the tail curl, pants off and on and the udder is still not full.

I was up a couple times during the night to check on her. I am :ZZZ: because not only did I have to check on Minnie our sweet Sam dog had eye surgery and now is blind. He is in a lot of pain and part of the night I slept next to him. I was so happy when it was time to give him another pain pill.
That's the :hair: the :) and the :tears: .


Sam before surgery. Now his eyes will be a solid dark brown
