Il Sogno Tricolore

Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Kennel, Middelburg, The Netherlands

Big belly, full with puppies.

As the days go by, Gaia gets bigger and bigger. The puppies are now growing fast and her belly has grown from 72 cm to 103 cm.

Without X-ray it is impossible to tell how many are inside, but we expect it must be quite a lot. We decided not to go for radiation because when the dog has many puppies it is hard to tell how many there are exactly and we don´t want to endanger the unborn at all. Research indicates that radiation increase risks. So when delivery starts it will be a nice surprise for us too.

This picture of Gaia was taken when she was 57 days pregnant.
