Thursday 15th November 2012 – It’s a conspiracy

The vacuum cleaner went off for repair and we got a call to say it is past making good. The man that cleaned the cooker for us managed to unscrew a part that won’t screw back together. Something has gone wrong on one of my Mistress’s websites that she really has to fix urgently and Shadow is getting ever closer to giving birth. Megan has gone to stay at the kennels for a few days. She was getting all too hyper and it really wasn’t helping Shadow with her breathing exercises.

The camera is set up for . It’s not live yet, but it’s ready for the switch to be put into the on position. The camera is out. The tripod with our webcam set up. This is going to be one of the most filmed births on record. I hope Shadow isn’t feeling camera shy. Shadow didn’t want to eat yesterday so it may all be happening very soon. She isn’t nest building but then she didn’t do that last year either. She isn’t panting and in full blown labour, but it’s only a matter of time. It could be anytime from today onwards. We’re just hoping she waits until Annie’s owner gets here tonight as she wants to be present for the births.

Yesterday Ari was getting very concerned for his mum and started looking after her and wanting to curl up in the same bed she was in. I managed to take a picture. She hasn’t seen the one I’ve taken of her looking huge! Please don’t tell her she’ll make me take it down again.
