I Forgot... post pictures of the whelping box set up.  Pixie tried it out for size.  BTW, it is in my family room right next to the computer/desk.  I started taking temps a few days ago to get an idea of her baseline.  She is running in the high 99s in the am and 101+ in the pm.  Normal temp for dogs is 101 - 102.  It is normal for them to be in slightly below 100 during pregnancy.  What I am looking for is a significant drop in her temperatures.  Below 99 even as low as 96+ often indicates impending whelping within 24 hours.

Sorry about the glowing eyes. Left on the flash.
