From Supermodel to Supermama

Can you moo?
A little more than a week to go until Trixie delivers her puppies. As you can see, she's gained quite a bit of weight and is getting ready to nurse the pups. Just like with pregnant woman, it is very important that pregnant bitches get proper nutrition. We accomplish this by switching foods and quantities three weeks before the due date. Trixie was switched to small breed puppy food, which offers the highest amount of nutrition in the densest formula and increased her portion size from 3 1/2 cups per day to almost 7! This is her favorite part of being pregnant! Don't forget, she eating for 6,7,8? ....we find out next week exactly how many little puppies she's eating for!
