I hope that by this time next week Beyonce will have her mini goldendoodle puppies! She is still a happy girl but I can tell this extra weight is getting old and it is harder for her to jump up on our bed or the couch for cuddles so I’m coming down to the floor more and more. Beyonce’s heat cycle started on Oct 10th (9 weeks ago) and her first date with Gizmo was on Oct 17th. I took her for X-rays on December 3rd and Dr Raja said he saw at least 5 puppies however since we had the appointment a little early (Dr Raja’s wife is about to have a baby and he’ll be out) he said there is a possibility of more than 5. Here are the X-rays as well as her on the couch this morning showing her belly. I think she might just be 21 pounds now which is really big considering she is normally 15. I think the side view, 1st X-ray is easier to count – look for the head and spine. How many do you see?!
