Default fostering a pregnant chi

i woke up this morn to the fone ringing OFF THE HOOK.when i answered it was a rescue ive worked w b4.someone dropped off(this seems to happen all the time)an adult female chi-pregnant.were calling her angel.they took her to the vet n she still has about 3wks to go(shes already HUGE-looks like she swallowed a bowling ball lol).i have an empty bedroom thats basically the chi's room(plus a private,fenced in yard) so i set up a puppy playpen in there.everyone was saying,'thats so great of u'.but,in reality,im being selfish-i get to take care of those pups .so,shes laying on the bed w me rite now rite next to me.mya,emily n bailey r fine but lily(3mth old)was sniffing her n tried to nurse on angel.she WASNT happy about it.at least she has some time to get used to the place b4 the pups come

If she is that big, I'd take her to a vet and do an xray. She shouldn't be huge yet...or she may be much closer to her due date than you think.

Good luck with Angel! Here's hoping she can deliver them without a C.S. surgery. Sue

Yeah, due dates can be a lot closer than you think. When I rescued Marmalade, I was told she had about 3 weeks before she was due. I got her late on a Friday and made an appointment for Monday to take her to the vets. Well, very early Sunday morning, she had her two puppies. Surprise!! I had nothing ready and she had the first one in a pile of clothing next to my bed. lol In my defense, she's a chi/corgi mix and they are built very stout and it was hard to tell how far along she was. And I had never had a pregnant dog before. I did much better this time with Abbys puppies.
