Casper is the lucky guy to be partnered with Blottie for her next litter, which all going well, will be here sometime around the 6th to the 10th March. She had a stunning litter with Ernest, and with a bitch of this calibre, unless just pumping out pups to sell. You try to match her with a different sire each time. Not putting your eggs in one basket.
Would of loved to have had Blottie's daughter, Teagol's MRI results back before doing this pairing, but nature has conspired against me, and I've had to follow my gut with this pairing. We have decided to leave Sasha this time, as it would be to close to Blottie giving birth. I have bred litters close together before, and from that I have learnt it is hard to give them the level of care we like to give hem before leaving us, and it can take away the enjoyment of rearing them. I'm having a re-think about things which I will blog about soon on the last instalment of the Twelve month review
I think this pairing will give us some lovely pups. I would be surprised if we have anything other than Blenheim (orange and white), although Casper's Mum is tricoloured.
