LITTER (3 M/3 F) WAS BORN ON JANUARY 30, 2011!!!

to new owners...
help us to welcome our "Oops" litter!
the first time in 15 years, we have had an unplanned breeding. We
were certain that it must have been a false pregnancy, as Itchy last
came into season on October 28th. The only intact male in our
home at that time was Dante, and he was kept far from Itchy during
her cycle. The best we can figure is that Itchy either ovulated very
late or had a split heat that we were unaware of. Even then, we
still don't understand how the breeding could have taken place
without our knowledge.
special thank you to Julia Foster for taking such good care of Itchy
until we could get her back home. Thank you also to Suzan Guynn
and Tammy Ausloos for your understanding. We hope that everyone
is aware that this was our mistake, not theirs.
the fact that both Itchy and Dante are outstanding representatives
of the breed, we wouldn't have necessarily paired them together for a
future breeding. That said, we will do our best to raise and
place these pups in a way that allows them every opportunity for a
wonderful life. ***News... both Dante and Itchy have passed all of their
preliminary health clearances!!! Both came back with OFA Good
Hips, Clear Elbows, Normal Heart and passed the CERF.
Dante and Itchy will each be recleared after age two and all results
will be submitted to the OFA database.
the litter was a surprise to us, Itchy seemed to be fully prepared
right from the start!
is a loving and attentive mother and we couldn't be more pleased
with how well she is doing.
