Okay, thanks for all the help with the gaining weight thing I did. I can see she has definitly produced more millk and gained weght. I can't see her ribs anymore! Now, I have another problem. She won't stay with the puppies in the whelping box (A cardbourd box about 4 ft long x 2 ft wide). I studied on whelping-boxes and it said that she should be able to get in and out to be away from the puppies now and then. Well, ALL last night I couldn't sleep because the puppies were FREAKING OUT, beacuse Mom wasn't there. Every once and while, she would grab a puppy, bring it onto my bed, and lick it. 5 minutes later, she would go grab another and put it under my bed. I had to take them and put them back and TRY to close her in there by throwing blankets over it. HAH! she still did it. And, when I finally fell asleep, Mom heard the whining and found her and a puppy under my bed. She is just toting them all over. HELP!! Why can't she just stay in one place!
