If you've been paying attention, you know that the most recent addition to our household, Stella, is about to give us even more additions to the household.
Well the other day, Stella was acting a little funny, so I thought maybe the time was approaching when the puppies would be joining us. We have no idea when she was sperminated, other than that it was before August 31 when she came to stay with us. The gestation period of dogs is between 60-63 days, so for sure by the end of the month, there will be some action around here.
Stella's anxiety turned out to be a false alarm, but it did inspire me to whip together a whelping box for her. I swear that's what it's called!
Since I thought this was an emergency, I grabbed got a good-sized cardboard box and did it up with some old sheets and whatnot--whatever I could grab was going in just in case this was the real deal.
I think she likes it.
And I couldn't help but sing "Don't be fooled by the nips that she's got--she's still (she's still) Stella in the box." Needless to say, P didn't get it. You get it right? (Notice I'm not asking whether it's actually funny.)
And then, a couple hours later--after the immediacy of the situation had passed and it became clear that there wouldn't be any little Stellas that day--I looked over and saw this:
So the new plan is that when P and I finally move house (we should be starting work on the new place within the month!), Luna and Stella will have new homes too--because P has been commissioned to build some doggie boxes.*
And that's love right there.
Happy Love Thursday everyone!
*Very different from the type of box Justin Timberlake has made famous.
