    We are expecting a litter of puppies between November 21st and 26th with our Collie, this was not the planned breeding as she was to be bred to another Collie come spring. We brought her in to get an xray to see how many puppies and if she'd need a c-section as dad was bigger than her and this was the result. Anyone want to take any guesses on how many they can see? The vet said between 5 and 7 but after adding a filter to the X-ray it is a little easier to see bodies and heads. Stella Puppy Check.jpg

    LOL! I like the way you think @frustratedearthmother !

    @BlessedWithGoats I originally thought that as well :D My work took a poll before we went in on how many they thought and I said 6 lol. So I will vote for 6 here even though I am pretty sure there are more... :th

    I think your vet was off by a few. I tried counting spines, I am going to go for 10. There are alot of bones in that picture. Years ago we had Dalmatian pups and the vet said 12. So when number 12 came we went to dinner to celebrate and came home to 2 more. Guess mom couldn't count.
