Noticing that one is wasting taxpayers money (?), and that the other has finished lunch, and is now thinking about dinner :)

i'm presently

1. downloading vmware 2.x
2. ordering pizza with kebabs, fries, salad, and that spicy hot sauce
3. making a full backup of one of our Solaris server (it's a development server, no backup script needed); TGIvnc
4. reading LH, HTG, BBC, digg
5. applying SP1 for my Server 2008 workstation
6. installing ubuntu 8.0.4.1 in the same workstation
7. hoping that all will go well for 5 and 6

:P

We were doing a set task, with a supply teacher, so nobody really did anything

Instead, we made funny shutdown commands, which came up with sarcastic messages as your computer shut itself down :D

December 5, about 12.45: been waiting for the past 12 hours for the first pup to arrive.
I've seen the amnionsack and that's all I get. I guess we have a long wait ahead:)
But at least she waited till my weekend started LOL.
Can't do much - not even sit behind the computer, because she wants me around ...
(and the other dogs are getting pretty bored already, poor dears LOL)

Cheers,
Sarah.

Taken a couple of days ago - she is definitely even bigger now:)

@ JadeEmperor - depends on their temperament. I have some names I'd like to use, but first we'll see who comes out:)
(I've been wanting a "Snapdragon" and a "Spitfire" for some time now, maybe they will be in this litter LOL)

LOL, i once had a pup named Spitfire but was named as such due to the disturbance that is always coming out from his other end. :-)

15.00 : One pup has been born - but she is too tiny and the umbillicalcord was cut off too short (the mother did that).
Pray that she may live!!! I need all your good wishes right now!

Sorry - supply teacher is a cover teacher for when the general teacher is away elsewhere (course/ill etc)

@Sarah

i kinda prefer black dogs. they're intimidating as guard dogs.

Oh, hi Rino ...
No good news. 4 pups came out, three alive, one dead, but the other three died within the next two days. They were premature, so their lungs couldn't cope.
All in all it was a very busy (and sad)couple of days with nothing to show for it:(
And now I'm busy making up for the lost time ánd spending extra time with the mom to keep her busy. She'll forget more easily that way and her milkflow will stop sooner if I give her a lot of exercise.

bb,
Sarah.

I think next time I'll post after they are born and a couple of days old, so you won't have to be kept in suspense too! LOL.

(just expected this litter to be allright, should have known better :(

Weather isn't good at all - light snow, but it doesn't stay, so everything get's dirty. It's cold, dark too soon, light too late in the morning. You sure don't need to miss that.
But after seeing your pictures I wouldn't want to trade with you - Vermont might be a green state, but it is white half year round and I feel frozen here just to think of it!

Next time I move, should be to southern Spain! LOL
