The countdown is on! Just a few day's till the puppies will see the light of day. As Dalila is not very exited about photoshooting any more I took a little film of her baby belly (so that she could stay in her favorite position).

One can see and feel the little fellows moving inside pretty clearly from outside!! We are very much looking forward to welcome the litte Diamond Baby's in this outside world!

Again our gallery is enriched by another sunday photo of Dalila. As the pics are getting smaller each time we add one we made an album out of it. Please just click on the miniature photos to enlarge them and start a slideshow.

Meanwhile we also have build up the whelping box and have set up the puppy-room (photos are coming soon..)..and to our great pleasure we could feel for the first time some tentative movements of the pups by carfully laying our hands on Dalila's belly. Dalila herself is very affectionate and has stayed already the first night in the puppy room (in her whelping box); together with me (Sibylle).

There is a new photo in our 'before & after' gallery. Dalila on her 42nd day of pregnancy. The seventh week of pregnancy has begun now and one can clearly see, that her belly is bigger than before. She also is getting much more comy and careful while playing with Surayya.

Now starts the 6th week of Dalilas pregnancy. On the pics below one can recognize the slight development of the baby-belly. In particular in comparison to Dalilas lean waist before the pregnancy. This is for sure over now for a while and Dalila also is a lot calmer and laid back as she used to be.

During the recent 5th week of pregnancy the fetuses started to develop toes and claws. The initial development of the organs is completed. The fetuses start looking like dogs now. Head and body can now be differentiated and the gender can be determined. Also the color of the fur starts to develop now.

Yipieeee! Now we have the evidence in black-and-white. Dalila is pregnant and is carrying quite a number little diamond-babies.

We are very happy about these news and we further report on the progress of the little raw-diamonds.

Today is the 20th day of Dalila's pregnancy. She is feeling very good and we were asking ourselves what is going on inside her. We found the following interesting information on the internet:

     Fascinating pictures from a puppy inside the mothers womb nearly at the same stage Dalila's puppies are now.

  February 6th & 7th 2011

Finally the great day has come! Our veterinarian and expert for dog breeding, Dr. Blendinger, gave green light for mating Dalila to Hetch. Consequently we started our travel to bring the dream couple Dalila and Hetch together. It was very obvious they both liked each other right from the start which resulted in two uncomplicated matings on two subsequent days.
