Puppies in Progress

I have been eagerly awaiting the day when I would be able to blend the different lines I have been working with into one litter and 25 years of breeding comes together.

Athena and Matt Sept 2013

Patrick is a Dolly son. He has not shown a lot but has done very well so far. He finished his UKC Championship at 8 months in a single weekend and then picked up 2 U.S. majors, and two major reserves, his first weekend showing in the U.S. at the Western Reserve specialty. He finished his Canadian championship in a handful of shows, even making the cut in the adult group.

Athena is a Dragoon daughter, out of my Libby (Hunter x Alice).  She has not shown in the U.S. but finished in Canada with her junior handler Matt. They have also qualified for Zone finals, and make a cute pair in the show ring!


Both Patrick and Athena have similar phenotype, and some nice virtues to pass along – beautiful deep chests and prominent prosternums, strong level toplines, and well angulated rears. The bonus with Patrick is that there will be no pink or fluff puppies in this litter.

I am using something new this litter – ovulation testing strips.  There seems to be good success with them overseas, and I am hoping that this will help also to ensure good results with this litter.  If Athena is anything like her mom, it will be a busy summer!

The pad on the left was my first day of testing and shows a negative result.   The test strip on the right shows blue dots which indicate the release of LH.   This means ovulation is imminent.

All being well there should be puppies around August 28!
