    May our minds, spirits and bodies
    become fertile with our wishes,
    quickly manifesting our hearts desire."

    Best of luck for your girl!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I just got off the phone with the vet. Penny's Progesterone level was 3.2 yesterday. This means that the LH surge was Thursday, and ovulation is almost certainly today. I will stop by on my way to Raleigh on Monday to have one more test done to confirm she is over 5. I expect breeding Monday Wednesday and maybe Thursday or Friday next week.

    This means her due date is probably September 11. Not sure how I feel about that, but que sera sera.

    Now is the time for all you guys to rub your Buddha bellies and think great thoughts for many ripe follicles. Milton is going nuts since we came home yesterday.

    got my fingers crossed for you.

    personally i think a sept 11th litter would be great, bring something wonderfull into the world on a day so much was lost.

    I thought you were taking her out of your genetic pool since she's had such issues with fertility?

    Define "such issues"? She had a litter of 10 puppies at age 3. Then took 2 years off. Had a litter of 5 puppies, altho only 2 survived. Then missed a back-to-back following a C-section, not unusual?

    If this b.itch

    I would.

    In fact if she has a healthy litter this go around, I will breed her again one last time on the next season and pray for conception then too.

    No need to be defensive. I wasn't asking a question I knew the answer to, wasn't attempting to call you out on anything. I *thought* you said she would be spayed in a previous post regarding the last breeding attempt. I might have been thinking of another breeder here, though I don't know who it would be, or I could be thinking about your dogs but someone else's post. Sorry..I guess I should have PMed the question.

    ETA: Ok I thought I was going crazy LOL here is the post that you said you were going to spay her in. Again, this isn't a call out. I was really wondering. Anyway here is what you said.

    Quote:Today's total was $62.00. I am so bummed. She has produced so well in her first 2 litters, however, she has had 2 small mammary tumors for several months. I am not willing to go on any longer with them. It means removing 2 mammary glands, and I am going to spay her at the same time.

    I look forward to working with Grace, getting her started in the show ring, finishing Milton's CH title, and I will be puppy shopping over the next few months for a new little girl.

    The disappointment is acute and bitter, I am always sad when it is the end of the road for breeding on a girl. *sigh*
