  1. Vets here cannot see pups until 5-6wks gestation because their machine is a dinosaur, looking to find a vet with a good machine who can successfully confirm a pregnancy (if she is pregnant) much earlier than 5wks. Bitch is 2 1/2wks from ovulation at the moment. TIA
  2. I would make sure stud owner has frozen semen in storage, but plan to send the bitch over there for natural matings until the breeder goes o/s, then just before breeder leaves (if bitch hasnt come in yet), get the frozen shipped over just in case the bitch came in season while stud owner was away. I have sent bitches over to WA a few times with good success, and will be having frozen sent over this year too. Good luck.
  3. I can take one, ill email Julie now. I'm in northern Vic but can drive down anywhere.
  4. Can you explain this for me? Orbee hasn't killed anything except his toys, but he tends to be what I refer to as a 'hoarder' in that when he takes his toys outside, he takes them to the same spot and puts them together. Do you mean it's a Terrier thing to NOT do this? Or is Orbit just.... um.... you know... Orbit isnt a terrier, lovey. A terrier would shred it, not lay it out Where i work there is 2 resident terrier's, very efficient ratter's, a quick shake and the animal is dead, the only give away is a small amount of slobber on the expired rodent.
  5. Truly sorry for you and your family DR, and your doggies. Such a tradgedy
  6. Can you put a clean pair of gloves on and insert a finger into the bitch yourself to check?? If not, and if you cant get the vet out now, i would just keep trying until she is finished. Good luck
  7. I cant stand people who say 'his' instead of 'he's', drives me nuts!
  8. My puppies all go for the same price regardless of the registration they are on. I put most of my puppies on Ltd initially and tell their owner's if they decide they wish to show and breed down the track they can come back to me to discuss upgrading the pup to Main register, on the condition the pup is show quality and passes health checks at 12mths of age (for no extra charge). I also sometimes give puppies away for free to people who have previously had one of mine or people who are willing to sign a contract allowing us to breed/show the dog if pup matures and is worth doing so (only if i really trust them) I find it is a great way to broaden our kennel's line without having a dozen or more dogs here competing for our attention. I also will not penalise someone wanting a show dog by charging them more money for it.
  9. So far with all my litter's i have 'picked' pups whilst i am rubbing them to get them going and 90% of the time they are the ones i end up keeping and mature into lovely dogs.
  10. My Maremma smell's like a sheep which i love, but if you dont like shedding then... not a good idea None of my dogs (Bull Terriers and miniature Bullies) have a doggy smell, ive taken in rescue's who smell awful but after a couple of months they too have no real smell, must be their diet? My mum feeds her dogs Pal and pedigree and they stink something shocking
  11. I cant see anything either, i think you'd probably have to email Janet Davidson to have it deleted
  12. A few years ago i was driving along out of town and saw a little scruffy puppy running around on someone's driveway right next to the highway. So i stopped and grabbed it and drove down to the house, where i found the father was a purebred Boxer and the mother was a Maltese/Shih Tzu. My grandmother ended up feeling so sorry for it and having recently lost her Whippet she took it home, it grew up to look alot like a Griffon Bruxellois just twice the size (and really ugly!). it was 100% Boxer temperament and energy level though
  13. I hope when you get her re-done she has good results. I think they should be doing it again for free. I have no experience with hip xrays, all i can see is she really needed a crap
  14. I am on a dairy, so when i have pups, all i do is milk twice a day and dont do any extra work in between, only gone for a couple of hours each time, in that time i put bitch in crate or outside.
  15. I got my first choice, that was in 2006
  16. I vote for Rebus... its a bit more original, every third dog is called Angus lol He is divine
  17. I would also refund a deposit if i ended up not liking the people who have paid deposits
  18. I am leaning towards taking deposits now for future litters, having been given the run around way too many times the last couple of litters. I think a 25% deposit is fair to ask, only refundable if pups dies or does not pass vet check.
  19. I have a friend who did this too, for a joke (because his bitch was a tart) he put in his last choice as "Spreadwell" and that was the one that was approved he hated it but kept it anyway
  20. Looks like the weather here is going to be ok for the weekend, fingers crossed it stays that way
  21. Omg :D :p tooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!!!!!! Thanks for posting, and sorry to the OP for taking the thread a little off topic, but i reckon these photos are worth it!
  22. I dropped a puppy to GTE last week and saw the container that holds the frozen semen, Its great theyre doing this too.
  23. Thanks Bulldust! It is my favourite photo that I've ever taken. Just in the right place and the right time. It looks brilliant full screen! Well then.......
  24. All your vet could do is sign a certificate saying the pup was in good health at x amount weeks of age, they cant give a person a health guarantee for the life of the dog. I offer refund/replacement guarantee's up to one year of age with every puppy i breed. I have however replaced anyway when a dog passed at 3yrs of age as i didnt feel 3yrs was a fair amount of time for his owners to have him and then lose him.
