What kind of climate are you in? Where's the whelping box? Good Lord, it's soooo hot here, I would hope you didn't need heat lamps! That's only if pups are born in a barn out in the winter somewhere!

lucky??? I hate it. step outside and glasses fog up. Strider goes outside for 10 minutes and looks like hes going to die of heat stroke. I wouldnt mind the 98 degrees so much if it wasnt 100% humidity. I think they said today the heat index was 118? keep expecting to see fish swim past the windows.

If you use a artifical heat source.Make sure the puppies can move away from it if they get too hot.I myself used a hot water bottle covered in towels so it wouldnt be too warm on them.Just be careful please you dont want dehydrated puppies it can be quite difficult to get them back to a proper temperature.O.K just be careful.Thanks Lisa.
