We are now a week out from the breeding, and Miss Sassea has resumed most of her usual activities. She enjoyed fetching bumpers in the lake yesterday, which is almost a daily occurrence for this active girl.
While we tone down the intensity of our activities during pregnancy, I work hard to keep her both mentally and physically stimulated. As her belly grows we’ll shift our focus away from swimming and retrieving activities towards brain activities like trick training and rally obedience. These dogs are true working dogs, happiest when they have jobs, and that is no different during pregnancy!
