    These books are excellent. The information in them helped me save a litter of pups I had 6.5 years ago. The author also does seminars and will be giving one in Whitmore Lake, Michigan on June 10th. For more information go to http://www.terrierclubofmi.org.

      Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!! Your advice re whelping pause took a tremendous amount of stress off my and my new mum… Ist time… I am a bit frightened of vets, we had a jack Russell who got pregnant after being “fixed” we were told she had imaginary pregnancy but 2 years later and many more trips to vet finally confirmed she had a mummified fetus inside her!! Needless to say I am now terrified… You have relieved me with your insight. My heart thanks you again!!! Bless you!
