Shelia (also known as Chicka) has made her trip from Sioux Falls SD to Apple Valley MN, the total trip took 6 hours because of a few detours. She made the trip well even though she may be pregnant! She has arrived to our home and met Stevee Rae (our blind 4 month old Golden) who she loves and stays close to, Mistee Bubbles our rescue Newf, she was not thrilled about and they had a few words, but are fine now and of course Sophee Bear she loves and is sleeping next to now.

If Shelia is pregnant she will desperately need a week or two to gain some good solid weight before she has these puppies, she is huge already and her back is starting to bow down. When she lays down her belly is massive to one side. Does this mean she is PG or just a medical condition – we will know on Tuesday when she has her Ultra Sound. Shelia needs an ultra sound for two reasons actually – to decide on a possible pregnancy and then check on a heart murmur that she definitely has.

What we know about Shelia is very little, she was born on September 30th, 2006 – so that makes her 2 years and one month – she appears to have given birth to a batch of puppies in the past since her nipples are very large, she is tiny – her first weight was at 55 pounds and if she is NOT pregnant than she definitely needs to lose 8 to 10 pounds because she does not have a waist line. I am told that she came from a home that had an un-neutered male and lived with him, we believe she also lived with her daughter Margaret. The breeder gave her to a shelter. So the shelter called RAGOM and here they are.

Please keep watching this site. Tuesday I will be able to tell you if she is pregnant and what her heart murmur score is – the grades are 1 to 6 – worst case scenario is a 6 = best case is a 1.
