Friday 4th May 2012 – Women!

Megan’s blood test yesterday did not present the answer we were all hoping for. According to the vet she will not be ready for mating until at least Tuesday. Now any of you who know about these things will know that there is science and then there are women! And women do not always operate in a scientific manner (just don’t tell my Mistress I said that!) Anyway, she has been asking other breeders about what point their dogs will mate and many of them are saying that it may well be before ovulation so waiting until two days after there is a risk of being too late. The only way to know is to take Megan to the stud dog every day and see if anything happens. All that is lost in the meantime is my Mistress’s sanity, well that went years ago! And of course the cost of petrol, Ari and me being in kennels, putting on the friends she is staying with… You could be forgiven for asking why she is doing it. You could be forgiven for pointing out there are other breeds of dog. You could be forgiven for thinking that she is completely mad. However, I know that at the end of the day she’s doing it all because of me. She loves me so much that she wants everyone to have the opportunity of having a dog just like me, oh and Ari of course and even Megan or Shadow. It makes me very proud to know I am her inspiration. I am the one who is the power behind her company, her writing and he love of our wonderful breed of dog. A lesser dog would feel that a heavy burden to carry, but I can walk tall and help her every way I can.

She says that if she has to come home before everything has worked then the worst part will be having to email the people waiting for a puppy to tell them they will have to wait even longer. Maybe she should loan us all out to cheer them up in the meantime.
