Ok, I know the argument for spaying and neutering and I agree a hundred percent. My daughter got her UKC beautiful blue fawn brindled PitBull for free under the condition he got to breed her once and keep half the puppies.
Well I took her temperature this morning and it was 98.1, and shivering on and off. I'm thinking that shivering is happening when she is having contractions. She does not want to get off the couch and go to the area prepared for her to have the pups. I put some trash bags under blankets for her to lay on, and covered her up with a blanket because it is a bit cooler than normal here today.
She seems to be mainly sleeping, is this just first stage or false labor. I thought she would be nesting and searching for a quieter spot besides the living room couch, that is her normal hang out spot.
Any tips or ideas please let me know,
