The Clutter is now 6-1/2 weeks old. They are happy, healthy, roly-poly Cardi babies. Last week we took advantage of our friendship with Kevin Dooley (Kevin’s Photography) and did a photo shoot. The puppies are very photogenic. They’ve had many visitors — which they loved. This week they will be temperament tested, microchipped, and have their first puppy inoculations. On the afternoon of July 1st, we’ll hold the Puppy Party and evaluate them for show and performance and companion homes. I have available one fluffy brindle boy and 1 pretty brindle girl. If you have interest in either, please complete a Puppy Application (link at the top of the blog). Meanwhile, enjoy these wonderful photos of the cute babies.

Flutter had a C-Section on May 3rd and the result was an armful of brindle babies. There is one itty-bitty that I am supplementing. She is slowly gaining. The others are making normal progress. I’ll get photos up within the next few days. I don’t seem to be able to catch up with everything that needs to be done. I have a new puppy cam which I am figuring out so you all can watch the baybeez.
The theme for this litter is Joni Mitchell songs.

Our pretty Flutter (CH Bluefox Elyan Mariposa RN CGCA CGCU) is expecting puppies. She was bred to Chase (MHIT GCH DC CAN CH C-Myste Baledwr Pursuit of Happiness CD RN HXAsM OAP AJP MVCX ROMvs). He will be handing out bubblegum cigars on May 3rd. This will be our first litter since December, 2014 so I am very excited. The pedigree is here. The puppy cam will be operational within a day or two of the birth.
I’ll share information as it becomes available. Flutter’s puppy-count xray is scheduled for April 29th. Please think good thoughts for a healthy mama and baybeez.

This morning we again ran an ultrasound over Copper’s tummy — just to be sure. Unfortunately, she is still not pregnant. I am so bummed!
Tuli has been suffering with hotspots. Last week, my vets took skin plugs and sent them off to Spectrum labs to see if our puppy has environmental allergies. Indeed, Tuli does. The results are below. The answer is the compounding of oral drops that will be administered under her tongue for 3 to 5 months. The Clinic will order the drops on Monday. In the meantime, I will re-home Tuli’s pet cockroach.

Wednesday morning I took Ms. Copper in to Los Lunas Animal Clinic for an ultrasound — to see if she was indeed pregnant. Unfortunately, it appears she is not. I am very bummed — and I know there are others who were waiting for puppies — who are probably pretty sad as well. So, back to the drawing board. When you do not use the “turn the dog loose in the neighborhood and see who gets her” method of impregnating, the planning, timing, and execution are painful and must be precise. We had a couple of hitches in the road which caused us to use frozen semen. The conception rate with frozen is significantly lower than it is with chilled extended or live. I would never plan on using frozen with a maiden, but circumstances overrode my preferences. Let’s see how things go with Copper. I hope to do a spring breeding. I hope it is more successful.
