The mating

A month earlier than expected, we noticed Cupid went into season on 23 July. Starting on day 8 of her season, we went to the vet to draw blood and test her progesterone-level. On Monday 2 August, the level had raised enough to know that she could be mated within about 24 hours. So that afternoon we started the long trip to Hungary where Fanta was anxiously waiting the next day. The day after, the mating was repeated successfully once more. The expected birth date counted from the first mating is 3 October 2004, so now we have to wait patiently to see whether this long and hot trip was worth it.

In about 4 weeks, we will have an ultrasound made to see if we can indeed look forward to the pups from this fantastic combination.

Watch this page carefully, we will keep you updated!.


Pretty nervous and very early, we went to the vet on August, 30 for an ultrasound. Very early, because normally we will go between day 28 and 30 counted from the first mating, but we were so nosy we could not wait any longer. But thankfully, after shaving her belly and putting the machine on it, we could easily find several sacks filled with a little puppy. So no doubt about it, in 5 weeks from now we will welcome the first children of our Cupid.

The final 2 weeks

The final 2 weeks of the pregnancy of Cupid have started now. Cupid still acts like her normal self, although she is having more and problems with her continous growing belly. Especially her walking and lying down and getting up is difficult and occurs a lot with much more moarning than normal. Only a little while till we will put up her litterbox and are going to start taking her temperature. The final counting is really there......

Final week

The final week has started now and we are felling more and more sorry for little Cupid every day now with her continous growing belly. Her litterbox is in the living room, we have started taking her temperature so now it is only impatiently waiting and counting these final days..
