Puppies on the way
After a long wait, we can officially announce Octavia is pregnant. We went through two heat cycles that she did not take, so we opted for a Surgical AI this go around. She is a big dog and I have been watching her closely and wondering "Is she pregnant or is she fooling me again?" Well, I finally decided that she was, but wanted a test to confirm. She doesn't look very big but I have been starring at her everyday. She has gained 15 lbs in just 6 weeks!!!!! We are so excited and making plans for the arrive of a litter. We went through extensive testing last fall to make sure we were putting together two quality dogs. Hips and elbows were tested and came back good. I am so excited, I don't know what to do with myself. I try to have 1-2 litters a year because it is such hard work if it is done correctly. Socializing puppies takes time. Can't wait for March 23rd.
