This is my first post but I have been soaking up advice from your collective wisdom for a couple of months now. This is a great forum with lots of smart sharing participants and is much appreciated.
We've owned dogs our entire lives, mostly Golden Retrievers and a rescue dog. Now, we are caring for our daughter's Lab and her litter of 8 20 day old puppies. Our home is very familiar to the mom as we live very close by since she was a puppy. We have had the mom at our home since 2 weeks before delivery and she is very comfortable here.
All is well with the litter; they are very healthy and growing like crazy. Just yesterday mom started doing something strange. She will stand outside the whelping box and start howling, getting the pups all excited. She will do this for 5 minutes or so then stop. Does anybody have an idea why this is happening? I can't tell if the pups get her going or if she gets the pups going.....
Thanks to all again!
