She has a ton of room. The cage is super huge, me, my husband and kids have sat in this cage with Dixie before. But she keeps to one side with them. I have tried to even out the light(sheet over it) and blankets but she likes the one side. Samer side she had her babies on. Weird! She has plenty of room. She is clumsy. She cant leave well enough alone. She's always gotta mess with them, they will sleep, and then she's gota nudge them, roll them, lick them, etc.

Its funny, they all kind ahave a personality already! We got cry babies, divas, clm-cool ones, its funny!

She also doesnt do a very good job moving them around. She tries by the head, middle, they will cry so she stops, tries to "rake" them and pull them, they cry, so she finally just gives up. I caught her haolding one, dangeling by the back leg yesterday, and had to tell her to put it down! He was crying............poor thing.

No, they will be in my site for awhile longer at all times!

Ive got bruises and a bad back now from so much time on the tile floor. I look like i have been in a car accident!

Pics will be at 5pm or so(Fla time) The pic boy at the store doesnt com ein till 4, so, as soon as I get them, theyll be here.

Got to watch the Daytona 500, my hubby is there with a guy from work,,had to sell the guy my ticket so I could puppy sit.

Its weird seeing Dix as a mother-when Im her mother!

I am going to say this one more time.

If you don't get the bitch OUT of that cage you will be sorry. There is no way you can keep the bedding in a manner to keep them off the cage grating.

This is NOT an appropriate place for puppies.

Please, a cardboard box is better than that cage.

GET HER OUT OF THERE.

a converted cage works well too, but I agree those bars are not a safe place for the pups to be, they also need protection from draughts

Have you tried the whelping pen again... if she's trying to move them , she may be happier with them there. I never had a pup that would do more than just nudge them with a nose to roll them over to clean and stimulate. Grabbing by head, middle or a leg would scare the h*ll out of me !! Especially if the cry and squeal !

As before, Mach, you need to keep a really close eye on your girl, and help her to be gentle with the whelps. She's a maiden, so sometimes she will need help.

The problem with the crate is puppies getting legs or tails through the grating. You can have severe injuries in the blink of an eye if they bitch puts pressure on a puppy who has a leg or tail through the cage bars.

Puppies need a solid surface preferably with bars to prevent the bitch crushing them against the sides.

I feel you are going to have serious issues, and dead puppies if you don't get her out of the cage.

JMO as always.

I begin to feel my message is not being heard, so I'll just be quiet now.

Between you Redy , Gallien , and me , I feel that Mach has had a lot of good advice, but I don't think she realizes that we've been through this so many times and only want what's best for Dixie and the pups.I wish her the best.. Last advice ... besides having a soft area to lie on, it's importand to have a piece of carpet that they can crawl on ... they need something for traction which helps build up the muscles. Now, we need the pictures !!

LOL Grammy it is like waiting at home for pics of the grandkids Mach I tend to lean on the side of the advice on the cage. Even if you dont have a whelping box a area where you can put Dixie and the pups where they are secure. I never to know of the carpet though but makes perfect sense. I know you are taking great care of your babies and momma... and of course need pics I think we are going through baby withdrawls

Would it work if she doesn't have another place to put the pups other than the cage line underneath the blankets and around the edges of the cage with cardboard? seems that would help with the grating?! The cardboard of course would have to be change regularly because of defecation and what not but at least to have something to block out the grate
