And the puppy count is.....

Star and I are just back from the vet where she weighed in at a whopping 44.2 lbs. The X-ray clearly shows 9 spines with heads and a 10th spine snaking up under her ribcage. So my Vet said "nine for sure, ten probable - wouldn't be surprised if there was an 11th in there too". OMG! She has some milk, but not a whole lot.. So...we are in serious puppy watch till they arrived. Send your good vibes, thoughts and prayer for an easy whelp and nice healthy (hopefully blue) puppies!
