Esther IS pregnant. The BAD news is....it looks like only one or two puppies are in there!! Ultrasounds are not a tool used for "counting" pups ( Xrays are), they are used for simply confirming pregnancy. Xrays cannot be used to actually count puppies until day 51-53 (vets will vary), because the babies' bones do not calcify until that stage of gestation. There may be a pup hiding in the rib cage, but since this one visible pup is so huge, it's possible that this is the only one!
We bred the pair on Monday, and again today. We will ultrasound on or near her 35th day of gestation to confirm a pregnancy. We will post that information here in approximately 35 days!
