  1. The Clutter – 3-1/2 Weeks Old

    May 27, 2017 by myeye

    It’s certainly taken me long enough!  And I am still working on the puppy cam.  It’s up and working, but I must contact potential viewers individually and let them know how to access the camera.  We can no longer go through this blog to watch the puppies.  The good news is that the new camera has excellent definition.

    So, here is The Clutter Litter at 3-1/2 weeks.  These are only head shots because I was holding them and taking the photos.  We should get some stacked photos this weekend as well.  The puppies are on their third set of collars — they’ve outgrown the first two.  Everyone (except Itty) is hovering at 2 pounds; she is just over 1 pound.  We have barking and puppy wrestling.  They are happily eating two meals a day of goat milk and yoghurt and ground raw turkey.  Mom Flutter takes care of the rest of the meals.  Flutter is in great shape, keeps the Clutter clean.  I get nothing done here because they need me to stare at them and hold them and play with them.  I truly love puppies!

    The theme for this litter is Joni Mitchell songs — I am a 60’s woman!

  2. 5 Girls and 2 Boys

    May 8, 2017 by myeye

    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.

    BOB Photo 11-7-14 Cropped blogFlutter finished her Championship with three Major wins.

    1-31-16 Chase herding by PamChase completed his Dual Championship on February 11th.

    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.


  4. Allergies and Ultrasounds

    December 5, 2015 by myeye

    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.
