Re: Does breeding time affect whelping time?
All of my breedings were after nine pm. All of my whelpings began in the wee hours of the morning. All but one. Arwen was bred many times to my male, and I cannot say which we hit on, and being several years ago, I cannot say that I bred her after nine either. But she woke me up at 2:00AM, and did not have the first pup, Tori the Terrible, until almost six in the evening. Hmmmm.
While we must work around schedules, and especially when we do not own the stud, I think there is no way around the later breeding times, so I guess we will whelp in the wee hours of the morning.
