    spaniel bitch

    Im sitting on my laptop tonight keeping an eye on my spaniel bitch,She is in pup and is due on sunday,She is very restless,in and out of her whelping box,Its her first litter and i cant wait for her to start giving birth,Im wanting to keep a bitch for myself (That is if she has a bitch)I dont know too much about breeding dogs but ive been intouch with the vet regarding tail docking and the removal of dew claws so all is in hand.Its just a waiting game now.
    Any sugestions for bitches names.(Clean ones).

    best indicator we had from our spaniel was a lot of panting, she got v hot v quickly and that was 15 mins before the first. She had 6 at 15 - 20 min intervals. Good luck!

    There loads of ways to choose names Scottish islands IE Skye ,Isla ,Jura ,Rum ,Canna .
    There's also Scottish whiskeys ,Scottish rivers ,hills & mountains, salmon fishing flies .
    The list is endless.

    If you're registering the pups with the Kennel Club, and you don't have your own kennel name, then the names (made up of two words) will need to be unique to the breed.

    We went with salmon flies.....

    Avon, Beauly, Carron, Dee, Dye, Earn, Esk, Fruid, Isla, Tay, Talla, Tweed, Spey
