Ok I admit I am lazy. But I want to make sure I don't miss the start of the pups being born but still leave Belle alone avoiding un-necessary disturbances. Previously I would have checked back every half hr or so but as I say to avoid all the running back and forward and un-necessary disturbances I am considering a monitor of some sort. The whelping will be outside in the whelping pen so something that transmits to the house would be great. Any ideas ??
