The Puppies Are Coming! The Puppies Are Coming!

Time snuck away on me and I'm late getting the puppy pool up.

Here's the deal. I have two girls expecting this coming week. One due Thursday the 12th and one due Saturday the 14th. Dogs can go up to 3 days either way (say the books) but I've found from experience that it's not always as accurate as all that. Very close, but not exact.

I'm doing a puppy pool for each dog. You guess what day they finally deliver and how many puppies they'll each have. The winner from each litter will get a dog shirt. (Just the shirt, not the pants. Sorry.) And because there could potentially be several winners from each litter, we'll throw in the number of boys vs. girls as a tie breaker if need be.

OR - get this - if you prefer I'll give you a $22 credit to use toward anything that you want. Sweet, no?


Here are the girls in all their pregnant glory. Poor things look like pot belly pigs at this point. And we're experiencing 90 degree heat. I've been in that position and it's not a comfortable one.

Grace is due the 12th. Leave a comment that says:
Grace, (date), (number of puppies), (boys vs. girls)

Rhythm is due the 14th. Tell me:
Rhythm, (date), (number of puppies), (boys vs. girls)

And yes, you can leave a comment for each dog. I'm expecting it.

Expecting. Get it?

I know it's lame, feel free to laugh at me rather than with me.

Okay, I'm going to try again (grrr Blogger!)

I think Grace will have her babies on June 11th, and will have 6 pups, split evenly between boys and girls.

I think Rhythm (love that name!) will have her babies on June 14th and will have 7 pups, 2 boys and 5 girls.

OH, and I really love the new header picture, or actually, the old picture :)

Ok, totally guessing here as I know nothing about birthing of dogs, but I'll go with:

Grace: June 13 5 puppies, 3 girls and 2 boys

Rhythm: June 14 5 puppies, 3 girls and two boys

Yeah, imagination isn't my strong suit ;)

OH! And when you were saying puppy pools, I so thought you were talking about kiddie pools (like swimming) but for the dogs. Duh!

Grace: June 11 - 2 girls 1 boy
Rhythm: June 14 - 2 girls 2 boys

I have absolutely no idea!

Pam said...

My guess is:

Grace - June 10 - 3 girls and 1 boy
Rhythm - June 13 - 3 girls and 3 boys

I'm totally guessing here and saying that this 90 temps are going to drive them all into early labor! Is that possible for me even though I am not pregnant? ;)

First, they are SO cute! Look at their little bellies!

My mom has a corgi named Jackson who is so much fun. He was the runt of the litter when she got him, but now he's HUGE.

Here are my totally random guesses:

Grace: June 10, 5 puppies, 3 girls 2 boys.

Rythm: June 15, 6, 4 boys 2 girls.

SO cute! I can't wait to see pictures of them!

Andrea said...

Oh yeah a contest!!! Let me see here.

Grace : Due date 13, 5 puppies, three girls, two boys

Rhythm: Due Date 15th, 4 puppies three boys and one girl.

Oh I bet I am so wrong!! I can't wait to see their puppies, I love love love corgis!! I want one!!!

Andrea said...

Oh, and if we lived closer I would so trade you a breed to our paint stud for a puppy!! Too bad you are so far far away!! :(

Aimee said...

Okay, I'm putting my guess in for Rhythm to go on the 14th (my anniversary!) and for 2 girls, 2 boys (just like my kids).

Grace, I'll say the 12th with 3 girls and 1 boy.

What happened to yesterday's post? I can get it on my reader, but I can't go to your blog and comment on it.

Put the bedtimes back where they belong. They don't appreciate the later evenings unless they are few and far between, anyway.

I think when you're homeschooling, the kids are around all day and you build up your tolerance.

Hi Karen -

Cute dogs.

I think Gracie will have her puppies on 6/15 and she will have 3 boys and 2 girls.

Kellan said...

Okay, and I think Rhythm will have her puppies on 6/17 and she will have 3 girls and 2 boys.

Have a good day - Kellan

Grace will have her pups the 14th. She'll have 4 - 3 girls, 1 boy.

Rhythm will have 3 pups on the 15th. Two boys, one girl.

I hope I win!!!!!!!!

Leanne said...

Grace is on the 15th with 6 - 2 boys and 4 girls.

Rhytm is on the 16th with 5 - 4 boys and 1 girl.

Um, I feel so sorry for these poor little girls. Here's sending them lots of easy labour vibes!! I'm so glad I will never be pregnant again...but I wouldn't mind the infant at he end still!! These baby urges never really go away do they?

The Sports Mama said...

I'm not actually going to guess, because I'm lousy at that sort of thing. That sort of thing being anything that requires any sort of skill, knowledge, guesswork or luck. :)

BUT.... I wanted to say that I LOVE the name Rhythm for your dog!

Laski said...

I'm horrible at this. I mean, I was the biggest loser on the poll to predict when MY OWN kid was supposed to be born.

BUT, I shall try . . .

Grace - June 15 - 3 girls and 2 boys
Rhythm - June 17 - 1 girls and 4 boys

Michelle said...

I've never participated in a puppy pool before LOL I have no idea how to even guess on something like this!

Grace: 11th, 6, 3 and 3
Rhythm: 15th 5, 4 boys and 1 girl

Lost said...

Grace - Friday 13th - 3- 2 boys, 1 girl

Rhythm - Friday 13th - 4 - 3 girls, 1 boy

Fingers crossed all are fine.

Shellie said...

I'm so confused, so many things to guess. I will say Grace, 14th, 5, 2 boys 3 girls (does that add up??)Rhythm, the 10th 6 pups. 4 boys and 2 girls.

Cecily R said...

I have ZERO intuition about this stuff. I thought all my babies were the opposite sex and I went to the hospital with false labor with all three. I am a pregnancy/mother's intuition loser.

So. Maybe I will be better with puppies.

Grace: June 11th. 5 puppies. 3 male, 2 female.

Rhythm: June 15th. 6 puppies. 3 of each.

Yea. I'm guessing I'm not so good at this either.

Linds said...

I'm the worst at guessing... so I'm just going to say, Yay! And I can't wait to see pics of the pup's!

caramama said...

Okay, I'll play!

Grace: 11th, 5 puppies, 2 boys, 3 girls.

caramama said...

Rhythm: 15th, 4 puppies, 3 boys, 2 girls.

Good luck to both of the dogs!
