Winter is back
Well, most of the snow had melted by yesterday. Today we woke up to a few new inches on the ground.

Gale getting to know the puppy room/whelping area.
Gale is getting to know the whelping area and likes it. She mostly likes looking out the windows in there, puppy toys, and peace and quiet, away from the other dogs.

Beautiful Gale

A couple of days sooner than I expected, Gale’s temperature dropped, she started the shaking, and tonight, the panting signaling labor has started. So, we are all set up in the whelping room for the night waiting for her puppies to arrive!


Labor has started


I will update via live broadcasts on Periscope during the night–if there is anything to report. She may not have any puppies until tomorrow sometime.

You can download the Periscope app on iTunes or Google Play. We are @laurelllewellins and you will receive notifications when we are live. 🙂

Wish us luck! Gale isn’t huge, so I do not expect a big litter, but I’ve been proved wrong before.

Hope to see you on Periscope during the broadcasts. This is my first time using it, so I’m not sure if I’ll do so great. As it turns out, small broadcasts are saved to my phone, so I shared the first one here.

OH and I wanted to let you know that I have heard from people over the past few days that are receiving their LML Puppy Calendar and they say it is beautiful! 🙂 I, obviously, have not received mine, yet. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that it’s getting good reviews. They are only available to order for two more weeks-through March 31st, 2016. Get yours here.

Hug your Llewellin Setter tonight! Maybe I’ll be hugging your new little bird dog puppy before the night is over.

Update: Gale had 3 male puppies.
