The puppies were expected on the 22nd April 2001. By the 15th it was becoming clear that Jasmine may well not go the full distance. On the 16th April she began to build nests in her whelping box and that night we put up a camp bed in the whelping room. As soon as the bed was made up Jasmine began to build a nest from the sleeping bag; within the hour she had begun to deliver. Within three hours the litter was complete, mercifully uneventfully, as all our helpers were otherwise engaged!!!
