Finishing Touches

Today, I’ll be working on getting everything 💯 for Ruby’s cute Shih Tzu puppies that are coming any day now. As you probably already know it’s pretty dry here in Arizona. As a breeder I must make certain that the humidity level is 55-65 percent in the area where the puppies will be spending time. After toying around with the humidifier and humidistat I finally got to the 55-65 percent level.

I also added the bedding

and heating pad to the whelping box. Puppies cannot regulate their temperature when they are born. It’s essential that they stay warm.

I cannot wait to share photos of the cute little Shih Tzu puppies when they are born!
