Had a welcome surprise yesterday with an email from Fizz's family. Fizz is from the second litter of Cavapoos we bred & her Mum is Ysabel & Dad is Rollo, my sister's Miniature Poodle. She is nearly 2 years old. Sarah contacted me to tell me Fizz is fine & because she is so lovely her sister & she are considering breeding one litter from her next year & asked my opinion on the second cross & about breeding a litter.
I feel happy that she has come back to me & feels happy to ask me for advice. Some breeders can be very overbearing about a novice taking up the reins to breed a litter but I feel that everyone starts somewhere & I would rather that someone feels comfortable to come back to me & ask for advice than not.
Sarah is switched on & may breed next year from her but I have advised to get lots of research done & speak to her vet & then the choice is hers. Whatever she decides I know it will be done with Fizz's best interests at heart.
Breeding a litter most times can be a wonderful experience but if things go wrong & they can even with lots of experience of breeding it can end in a nightmare, so you must understand fully what you are getting into. The Mum's welfare must always come first & worry about the vets bill once you know she is okay not before.
Sarah sent me this photo taken from her phone & hopes to send me more once she can download photo's from her new camera. Thanks Sarah for contacting me again & letting us see beautiful Fizz all grown up.
