We have changed Agility fun to Life with Shetland Sheepdogs. We do agility for fun and competition but mostly to enjoy the time with our Shelties!
We will also discuss animal care and wellness, feeding, training and especially the joy of living and working with the Sheltie!

I am still waiting on Glory. If she is having a false pregnancy it sure is fooling me. Early this morning she was doing a little nesting. But it is possible she would nest even if a false pregnancy. I truly hope it is not but I am so baffled. Her temperature is going down, as it should, but she still has a huge appetite, usually the day they whelp they do not want to eat but so far she has been chowing down. When Rosie had her false pregnancy, two times, she had all the signs but never stopped eating. All I can do is continue to wait and be patient, she is not in any discomfort or distress so it is safe to wait. I could take her for an x-ray but that is expensive and I will know soon enough if there are pups or not. I did think that I felt a pup last night. Glory is testing me for sure. She is sleeping in the whelping pen in the kitchen and everything is all set up. I have the baby monitor running at night and I can hear her every movement. This morning I did hear her digging at her blankets which she has not done so far, so maybe we are still heading in the right direction. Topaz is due the 13th so there will be puppies soon. She is definitely bred. Glory is a big girl so it is easy for her hide her pregnancy. Her waist line did expand but it is amazing how even in a false pregnancy this can happen. I will continue to get Topaz all set up and soon Bonnie who is definitely expecting too. Being patient is very hard for me but I have no choice and I am learning. Living with Shelties there is something new everyday. Definitely a learning experience.
