No puppies!

So sad to find out that our much anticipated pregnancy wasn’t successful and Ori isn’t going to have puppies.  Long wait until we can try again.  The stud dog was diagnosed and treated for cancer, so we are not sure if that had any effect.  We were really looking forward to this match.

Truffles in Texas!

We moved to Georgetown, Texas in spring 2018.  Recently I found out there are Pecan Truffles in our county.  We are excited to go find them once they are ripe.  They ripen in summer to fall.  I haven’t seen or tasted Pecan Truffles but I understand they are tasty!  Ori has been practicing NoseWork and I want to see how she can do with locating truffles underground.

Catching up on news!

I had issues of signing on but now am back!  Giuditta went back to her breeder in hopes she will be able to eventually be bred.  She has aced all her tests, has done some limited showing.  Our hoped-for breeding of Ori was a miss, so no puppies for a while.  We will try again in late spring.  She is having a lot of fun in NoseWork and doing well at it.  Vando is making weekly visits to Juvenile Court in Williamson County.  We stay with the youth as they await their time with the judge.  We hope to make a small difference in their lives.

How do I find a puppy?

If you get to the end of this post, you will see photos of past litters of darling babies.

Here is a good article from AKC about how breeders screen potential buyers.  While I don’t totally agree with everything in this page, it shows the amount of care a good breeder takes to find the best family for the best puppy.

Sadly, I had hoped to breed a litter in a couple months, but my girl came into season 2 months early and I didn’t have her testing completed, so plans have been changed and the timing will be close to the end of the year.  I keep a list of names, and once I know I am about to breed, I make contact with the inquiries again to see if you are still interested.  I don’t collect deposits until I know I can promise you a puppy, but I will update you on your chances of getting one of my puppies.  I can sometimes suggest a club breeder that might be taking names, as well.  So here are images of past puppies:

Future breeding plans

We had hopes of breeding Giuditta this summer but she came into season 2 months earlier than expected.  We had not completed her hip/eye/ and DNA testing, so we could not breed her.  Hopefully she will come into season again before the end of the year and we can plan a litter.  The sire we have chosen for her is a wonderful boy named Barbelo whom we have used with some of our other girls with great success.  Check Giuditta’s page to see updates on her health testing as we complete them.
