Exiting times

 

We have had a very exiting year so far, and it looks like the good luck is holding up.

Our Girls Clover and Amber ended the last year with litters just before the turn to the new year, and even though both had lost 6 puppies, we were still overjoyed for the little ones that graced our home. It was poetic justice that Clover raised boys (1 girl) the last time, and this time it was all girls and one boy (though it was her sister’s boy).

We have decided to re-breed Amber this season, due to her losing all but one of her puppies, and then we allowed Clover to raise him, to give Amber a rest. Though we can never be totally certain WHY Amber went into labour early, we thought the extreme heat we had during the time might have played a role.  All the puppies struggled with breathing problems, and the survivor was tube fed for the first 2 weeks of his life, just to give him a fighting chance. He was initially just to weak and small to suckle, so without tubing he would never have made it.

Die 6 E-tefies en kleine Flash is intussen almal na hulle nuwe huise om die volgende gedeelte van hul lewe te kan begin, en oral is happy smiles.  Hoe sê die engelsman?  All’s good that end’s good!!

Here’s Amber with lone puppy Flash.    Next to that is the E-girls for their family portrait.

Dan is daar natuurlik GROOT opgewondenheid omdat onse lifelike Coco dragtig verklaar is, en dit noggal met die befaamde en super aantreklike Iceman van die VonGisero Kennels in PE.

Soos almal weet (of nie weet nie) is Coco nie net ‘n SA kampioen nie, maar ook ‘n Internationale kampioen, en Iceman himself ook ‘n SA Kampioen. So die kwaliteit van die beplande werpsel spreek vanself.  Wat dit nog so tikkie meer exiting maak is die feit dat beide hierdie supersterre ingevoer is vanaf NOorwee, wat beteken dat die babatjies, basies ‘ingevoerde’ status kan hê, behalwe dat mens nie vir die invoerkoste hoef te betaal nie.

Merkwaardig is die belangstelling in hierdie werpsel, en het ons baie onverwags getref.  Tans is Coco nog in PE, maar sal eersdaags terugkeer, om haar babatjies hier op die plaas in haar eie Nessie te kan hê.
