Maybe Puppies Tonight!

Lesley emailed me that Abba seems to be nesting and refused her meal tonight. Of all our beagles, Abba is the biggest chow-hound. So for her to refuse food means something is up. Stay tuned.

Abba's still Growing 03.28.09

Here's Abba yesterday (03.28.09). Lesley says she now measures 31 inches. May need to change my guess on how many puppies.

Below is a pix from Mar 24 when she was 29 inches.

Hey, Hey, Hey It's FAT ABBA

We affectionately are now calling her FAT ABBA. She weighs 30lbs and is 24 1/4 inches around her belly. Wonder how many puppies are in there? And yes, it is March even though you'd think it was December with all that snow on the ground.
