We're keeping an eye on her in case we need to take a trip to the vet. When I'd first told mom about problems that American Bulldogs can have with birth (needing a possible c-section because of the pups heads) she said that the daddy was probably a pitbull since that's all that the people had where she'd gotten Molly. So hopefully the pups will be manageable without needing a c-section.
I told S that she should prepare herself in case she needs to reach up inside of Molly to help a pup out and she turned a lovely shade of green, stating 'screw that, I'm not putting my hand up there!' Mom and I laughed and Mom told her: like I told Shannon (that's me for those not in the know) when her dog went into labor when she was a kid, it's your dog, it's your responsibility...I've helped birth my own pets when I was a kid and I'm not doing it again. That's when S' eyes proceeded to practically pop out of her head. Don't worry, if things go south and S panics too much due to her 'delicate sensibilities' Mom and I will help Molly and her pups out.
We'll all just be so glad when these pups are born because poor Molly hasn't been able to lay down comfortably for a couple weeks and teets look more like utters swaying in the wind. Plus, we're tired of Molly peeing everywhere. Doesn't matter if we'd just walked her (which has been done every hour), she comes in and pees (usually on one of the kid's beds) and Mom and I are tired of having to wash bedsheets and scrubbing beds every day. LOL Molly's pregnancy has surprised me and Mom because its seemed different than all of the other dogs we had to deal with when they were preggers and given birth, but then they were little dogs. Mom said that with the Doberman and the German Shepherd we'd owned when I as a kid were different because the dogs went off by themselves in the back of the house and had their pups without any indication that they were even in labor.
