Fancy had her ultrasound this morning and Dr. Ross at PeWee Veterinary Hospital saw 5 and perhaps 6 little heartbeats…so puppies are in the oven 🙂 Good job, Swagger Man!!
Some breeders don’t take advantage of an ultrasound, but Dr. Ross has high tech equipment and reproductive veterinary medicine is her specialty so she is my go to vet for breeding and whelping help. She has been right on the money with my other litters, and I really like knowing if my girl has been bred so I can give her extra special care (as if my dogs aren’t always pampered!!!).
I project the due date based on Fancy’s last litters as December 17-20. 2013. Fancy and Swagger most likely will have puppies in the 13-15″ range, although there can be exceptions to the rule due to genetics in the dogs behind them. I know that Fancy carries the gene for “red” which is recessive in Aussies and it will be interesting to see if Swagger also carries it. No doubt, the probability for black tri and blue merle puppies is high. Only time will tell…….that is part of the fun!! Check back in for progress reports.
