Good news / Bad news

Posted By on January 8, 2018





First the bad news- disappointing anyway. Neither Tracer nor Reba are going to have puppies. I thought for sure they were both pregnant, but I began to get concerned that even though they had both thickened in the middle,  I could feel no puppies. They both went to the vet last Saturday. The sonograms confirmed my suspicions that there were no puppies. They had blossomed eating my pregnancy diet – not from puppies.

We have some other breedings planned, but I’m not going to say much about them until pregnancies are confirmed.



My husband Mike is home from the hospital recuperating from surgery, so I spend most of my time looking after him. But this past weekend, our daughter Caitlin and her family came over to be with Mike, and I took a brief trip to the Nolan River Dog Show in Glen Rose. Lea Bertsch was showing our Poppy/Samson son Patton for us. Patton was winner’s dog/ best of winners on Saturday and Sunday, bringing his point total to six. He is doing good as a one year old. We are proud of our Paddy Pat. Lea loves Patton, and does a great job showing him. It was also fun to see Patton’s sire, Samson, at the show. Samson is looking awesome! He was best of variety Sunday over another beautiful special.
