The mating

On August 12, 2005 Cupid started her season, about 2 months earlier than expected.Pretty early in her season she showed already all signs to be ready for mating. While it was the first time for Gyp we have decided to do bloodtesting to measure the progesterone level to be absolutely right when the time was really ready for mating. On August 22, we got the sign to start mating in 24 hours from then.

Without any problems at all and not showing he was just a beginner, Gyp and Cupid had an excellent mating followed by a tie on August 23, 2005 which was repeated 24 hours later. Counting from the first mating, the expected delivery date will be around October 24, 2005.

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!.


On September 20, 2005 (day 28 counted from the first mating) w have taken Cupid to a visit at the vet for an ultrasound. Thinking about the fact that Cupid is getting lazy, more tired and very soft and cuddly in temperament, we had hardly any doubt of her being pregnant and yes, 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 new children of Cupid and so Gyp's first children.
