This big square PVC tubes inside mah Crib is to prevent me from accidentally squishing the puppers when I try to lie down. I call it my "Private Under". Why? Because I like to purposely push mah tennis balls under the couch, tables, racks just for fun & then try to dig them out with mah paws till my hoomans get so annoyed with me. Heh! So now, I have mah own under! Yipee!!!
These stuff are called Birthing Paraphernalia. We got everything all ready when the time comes. You all must be wondering what are these small sacks of stuff. Well they are actually little bolsters for the puppers. Inside are filled with uncooked rice which will be microwaved on low so that they'll be nice & warm for them to hug on. You know, I HATE heat right? Blankets will be placed in mah Crib(oh no!), hot water bottles filled with warm water will be placed under the blankets(double oh noes!) & lights will be on too for some extra warmness for the puppers! I am very sensitive to heat so that's why I like to sleep on nice cold tiled floors only. Well, I think I might just have to dig the whole sheets out then. I know I'm such an irritating woman but what to do?
You see that ther-mo-mee-ter? Yeah. That will be poked into my "you-know-where" a few times(I think 5 or more times on the same day) to check mah temperature. If my temperature is below 37 degrees, then I should be having a labour. Normal temperature is 37.5 to 39.2. If above 39.2, then it means I'm having a fever. I hope that doesn't happen. Though this is just for percaution, I'm certainly not looking forward to it! Nu-uh!
