The 3rd pup from our GOT litter, Sarge (T. Winds Of Winter) was hip/elbow xrayed. He was scored a total hips of 16 (L9:R7) and clear elbows 0/0.
The 2nd pup from our GOT litter was xrayed for scoring. The first boy, Rollo (T. Dragon N Th Wolf) came back with results, elbows a clear 0/0 and hips slightly above average at 20 (R13:L7). The rest of the GOT litter will be scored throughout 2019
Rosamour Kennel in Melbourne welcomed a litter sired by Remy (Austraian Champion Amedange Once In A Blue Moon) to Miley (Moloscyg Twerking It) on 9th January. Pretty exciting litter for Rosamour.
As for litters of our own this year, we plan to mate Nala around September 2019 and Oona late in the year. Details of our planned litters are located under the puppies tab. We are currently undecided if we will breed Iiah for a final litter given all the heartache of her previous experience, however her health results are great and her lines are precious.
Karma's scores came back. Hips L7:R9 total 16 and elbows a clear 0/0. Pretty happy with the results.
We still have available to pet home, 1 British Bulldog female puppy. Hope is ready to go (endorsed not for breeding)
We flew to Adelaide for a family event mid October. The first half of our trip we stayed with friends Chris & Yvette Girling of Moloscyg kennel. Remy came with us and will now be staying in Adelaide for a while. He seemed really happy with his new girl friends, I'm sure they will keep him in line haha. Big thanks to C&Y for letting us stay with them. It was a wonderful start to our 6 day holiday.
With an increase in our little family, we have decided to cut back and rehome a few of our dogues.
A big Thanks must be extended to our friend Kristy (formally Clovischein kennel) for taking on iiahs 3 remaining pups and weaning and caring for them for 2 weeks for us. The pups returned at 5 weeks old, eating solids and still with additional formula.
Iiah's little girl affectionately named Dolly, was still tiny but managed to keep up with her much bigger brothers. We decided to run some blood tests as we were certain she must have had a liver shunt of some sort which inhibited her growing at a normal rate but these came back clear. Which was a relief but still provided us with no answers as to why she was 1/5th the size she should have been. Unfortunately, Dolly took a turn and we had to make the hard decision to let her go on the 30th. Hopefully, we get some answers from her autopsy report.
Young Bertie found a home with Thunder in QLD.
Iiah whelped 1 female puppy naturally early morning of the 16th August. She had a difficult labour which resulted in #2 & #3 being still born. We rushed her in for an emergency caesarean. #4 was also delivered stillborn en route to the vet. #5, #6 & #7 were born alive. #8 had already passed and miraculously, #9 was found when we returned home, cold but alive. Unfortunately, he had herniated part of his stomach and died the next day. Iiah was a really attentive mother, protective and doing a wonderful job until she pulled all her caesarean stitches out on day 3 and we had to rush her to emergency surgery late Sunday night, where she stayed at the clinic for the next week. We tried a surrogate mum on the Monday but unfortunately she didn't accept them and one of the boys was bit on the head. It didn't look like much damage, just superficial but unfortunately he died 3 days later. The remaining pups, a girl and 2 boys are doing well. We tried another surrogate when they were a week old and she took to them very well. The pups stayed with her and her litter until 2.5 weeks old, when she came down with eclampsia and subsequently, all pups had to be weaned off her. The pups have returned home but Iiah has not spent the last 2 weeks with them, she will not accept them back and her milk supply has dried. Lucky the pups have started solid food and we are alternating between solids and formula.
It has been an extremely traumatic experience for all and one that has been mentally draining. Iiah will be retired from our breeding program and will be looking for a new home in the coming months, where she can relax and just enjoy life.
Diablo went to his new home in Perth.
Had Taureauxroug Django xrayed for scoring in March. Only just had a chance to send them off and he was returned with a wonderful low score of Hips 4 and Elbows 0/0. Great results
We have 1 female available on Main register from our Harry Potter litter. Purple collar girl. See Available page
New photo added to Diesel's page.
A very busy month, June! Narla's pups ventured outside and started solid food. Oona's pups were vaccinated and will start to head off to new homes soon, starting with the Blue collar boy on 30th. His sister Freya, Pink Collar, will fly to Vicki at Amedange kennel late on the 9th July. Syn (green collar) & Bella (purple collar) will be heading off to their new homes on the 26th July. The red collar boy is available.
We also mated iiah to Diesel on the 16th June. We decided to try a TCI with fresh semen as previously, we did a standing AI with fresh semen which resulted in the one and only, Gypsy. Iiah cycles like clock work, every 5 months on the dot pretty much, and we would like to see that she has a larger litter and hopefully, more maternal instincts then previously, before we consider using our frozen semen from Theano Vin Diesel. Fingers crossed
