Breed Notes - 14 Jan 2015
You never know, but 2015 may be the year that we have the first litter of puppies born from frozen semen in UK. Tiggy (Hightimbers Penny) owned by John and Caron McLure was inseminated with Maggie and Lloyd’s DJ’s (Dutch Ch.Pines Saxophone at Hightimbers) semen at the weekend. It’s not before time and let’s hope it is successful, as I feel it is the way forward for our breed and must be kinder on the bitches who up till now have had to travel many many miles in search of mates. All we can do now is wait, and keep an eye on Maggie’s website.
We are off to Manchester (actually at Stafford) this Saturday, it will be Dublin’s first show, which will be fun. Think it will be rather a late start as there are several breeds before us, but there is an entry of ten, which is a great improvement over last year’s one. Perhaps things are on the up for shows again. Maybe even time for breakfast on the way, with any luck.
Have just finished the course of injections for the new puppy Poppy, and the thinking at the moment seems to be three separate injections at two-weekly intervals. I expect it will work out more expensive, but if your Vet advises it what else can you do but comply? If it means the same intrusive chemicals spread over a longer period, I feel that could mean less potential toxicity for the puppy, which would be better maybe. My instinct is against putting these things into my dogs, but having had a puppy owner lose a puppy to leptospirosis because there was a delay in giving the inoculations, I am scared not to have them. What a dilemma.
