Just a few days after arriving at her foster home, however, Janelle’s behavior changed. White noticed she wasn’t eating, and when he came home from work on June 12, she became anxious and seemed uncomfortable.
“We knew when I got home from work that evening that something was up,” White said. “I was hoping she’d do it during the day, but …”
Janelle didn’t know it, but she had landed in the best hands. A practicing vet for 30 years, White had delivered more litters than he could remember. When he saw the first contraction around 8:50 p.m., he quickly realized that he and his wife were going to be there a while.
“I’m probably more cautious than I should be, but I just want to make sure everything goes smoothly with each puppy,” White said.
