Yesterday was Leidy’s Day 5 so first thing in the morning we drew blood for a baseline progesterone test and sent it to the lab. I had been religiously checking her for the past two weeks, so I know yesterday was Day 5. Chase was telling me that it was time to breed her yesterday and I thought he was losing his touch. He’s been very good about ignoring the girls until the testing confirms that they’ve ovulated. Well — Chase was right. Doesn’t matter what day it was. Leidy’s progesterone level was 12.5. Time to take care of business. This means puppies should be due on October 19th or 20th. Cross fingers, please!
Oh, and poor little Holmes who wouldn’t eat and howled all Wednesday night? It appears he’s no dummy either. Holmes is on his way to Greeley and then to Topeka, so will be spared the realization that his Dad has all the fun.
