Well, Pearl's x-rays are in! While the vet is pretty sure she can confirm seeing at least 8, she also said there was the possibility of 1-2 more! Of course, this is never a guarantee of live puppies born, as the whelping process itself is full of unforeseen events. But we are hopeful, and very excited! I made my best attempts at trying to line heads and spines up, and I think I can see 9; Pearl really crams them in there! Wish us luck for next week!
