And a little (just a tiny bit) of disappointment. Our accidental love liaison of Cyrus and Hazel is not going to result in pups. An ultrasound concluded that Hazel is not pregnant. Which is good, cause my back is only now feeling better and I don't need the strain of looking after pups next month. But, I know a couple folks on my list were hoping that a puppy would be in their future this Fall, for that I am sorry.
So, plans are in order now to breed the two in December (we obviously know they are not opposed to the idea) as originally planned when Hazel is next in season, which would mean pups would be ready Spring 2015 for their new homes.
