Beautiful, sweet Gertie girl is due soon and we are so excited to meet her puppies! We are praying for healthy lives to be born with a smooth, easy delivery for Gertie. Not too much to ask for, right?! :) Yesterday I got out the clippers and shaved Gert's belly. We are gearing up for these little ones with puppy proofing the home and preparing a warm and cozy whelping box for her pups. I think if Gertie had it her way she would have them on our bed, one of her favorite places to be. Here's a photo of Gertie sporting her new shaved belly, she was too shy to give us a full belly shot.
