We are at day #49! This past weekend, Bobby finished Portia's whelping box and as we were moving the huge box from the shop into the house, REALITY hit me smack in the face!!
The journey to this point has been exciting, challenging, and exhausting, but as I look at my sweet girl with her head in my lap, those beautiful soft eyes saying "what is happening to me?", I am flooded by so many emotions such as joy, anticipation, and fear, to name a few. The babies that I feel moving around in her belly and hear their heartbeats are not just ANY babies, they are Portia's babies, and she is depending on me to help her.
Stacey and I talk almost every day about the puppies, our girls and our work week, "nothing new". But today, the reality that we are 2 weeks from delivery is sitting in my living room in the form of a big Box! Ready or not, we will be meeting those babies very soon! Portia says "I am soooo READY!"
