Unfortunatley after having a scan at 5 weeks, which showed at least 4 puppies, Roxie only had 1 x bitch on her first try, we were always going to keep one from her first litter and this made the choice easy, that's how we came to have Luna, it was a nerve racking experience but the help we received especially from the stud dog owner Sonia was exceptional, she lead us through the whole task and her experience and no how was in valuable. Roxie gave birth to Luna at 9pm on Halloween 2011, right on time.
Due to Roxie only having the single puppy in litter 1, we felt she deserved a second attempt, she went to stud on Sunday 18th, Monday 19th, and Tuesday 20th March, and as usual Sonia's dog (Melowdee Major Tom) did us proud. On the 16th April she went for her scan and a check up and we were delighted to see at least 4 embryos. We waited with baited breath as the time drew near and at 5am on Thursday 17th May Roxie went into action. In all she had 6 puppies 2 x Dogs & 4 x Bitches the last arriving at 8.15am that morning.
Puppies have all left home now and are with their new owners, we wish them all every success and happiness in their long and happy lives.
Tina and I will now take a rest and are in the process of looking for new premises to expand this business, we will keep everyone advised, and look forward to updating on new litters in 2013.
