Good lord...

Zip kept me up all night...she was pacing, panting and would not settle...took her temp 99.5 at 2 am...ok..so that is fine.

Couldn't figure out what the problem was until about 3 am.....when the toxic fumes started coming...

SHE HAD GAS.....oh lordie did she!

I have never smelled that coming from a LIVING being before. I have smelled death...and that was death....death of SOMETHING...

I think it is best said in the movie "Anchorman"---"that smells like a turd covered in burnt hair"...yep...that probably sums it up for me...it was a smell not natural, not healthy and it permeated everything...

She wanted to sleep with me...but every 10 minutes I was bathed in the stench coming from her rear...and of course with the ceiling fan going, well it created a lovely "wind of death" in the guest bedroom where we were asked to sleep last night. So I finally broke down and put her in the whelping pen....that way at least the stench might diffuse before it got to my nostrils....not.

I can't say I blame my husband for banishing us to the guest bedrom....honestly, if I wasn't worried that she was going to have puppies..I probably would have put her in the bathroom and turned on the fan (I mean..that IS where that smell SHOULD be if it is in the house)...but alas...I was stuck with Zip and her butt of death...

Needless to say, I didn't sleep much. I think your body is programed to smell those kinds of scents and get AS FAR AWAY as possible....survival technique...as nothing that smells like that could possibly be good for you...

She decided to settle in about 3:45 am, sleeping and farting....sleeping and farting....

Lets hope those babies come sooner rather than later......
