As you know, I like to breed my girls only once a year and Fancy’s turn doesn’t come about until Fall 2013. She gave us six healthy and beautiful puppies last Winter and I like to give her “time off” to just relax and play in between litters.
Swagger, our little male, is coming into his own at just over a year old and it was questionable if he might have bred Fancy last month. We didn’t think so, then we thought so, and it was just a little iffy because there was that sneaky suspicion…..
Fancy has been a little symptomatic by not eating like her usual chow hound self and that has always been a giveaway that she is having some morning sickness. So, I scheduled her ultrasound on Monday, and…..NO heartbeats to my relief. Summers are just very busy for me and for some reason I like winter puppies if I can work it out. Plus, the timing is good for them to go to their forever homes just as the weather turns to Spring.
So, back on schedule, and Fancy will be bred again come October for December 2013 puppies if all goes as planned. I’m still holding my cards on Rosie for this year. Her little body is developing well, but I haven’t decided if I will breed her this go around. News on that later!
