X-ray of Eris' from yesterday. Her temp is already down so we're expecting she'll start whelping tonight.

Ultrasound several weeks ago showed 8. I'm counting at least 7 but maybe 8. I'm not completely sure as it's hard to tell what zipper goes with what pup .

Curious how many pups everyone sees. :)

at least 7 but maybe 8 - matching up skulls with spines - seems to be a spine whose head is tucked in

I see 8 skulls, the spines are too intertwined. Wishing Eris an easy whelp!

I see 7 obvious ones, maybe 9...so I'll go in the middle and guess 8

Can't wait for photos :)

I can't tell at all, but wow!! I've never seen an x ray of a pregnant dog before, it's really fascinating. Oh the miracles of life!
Good luck to your girl :)

I'm counting 8 although I might be confusing rib cages with faint spines. That picture is quite amazing.

Good luck. I see 7. Let us know how it goes. Pics would be great. Ok, maybe not the actual birth. It is gross for humans, so I imagine the same with a dog.

That XRay seems much better than the ones I get......I wonder if it is a difference in the Vet's Machines???

Well Ruby was the only one who mentioned the right number... we ended up with 9! 2 boys and 7 females. Needless to say the people wanting girls are doing cartwheels and the people wanting boys are banging their heads.

Everyone is doing great and this was hands down the quickest, easiest whelp ever. Pretty much one pup every 30-60 minutes consistently with no long breaks or problems, all done early enough we were in bed shortly after midnight! Eris gets the "best whelper ever" award. :)
