The mating

Thinking about half a year ago when both we and our future puppybuyers had to deal with a huge disappointment finding Blaze not being pregnant, we decided to wait this time with making things public till we were absolutely sure.

On December 17, we have taken Blaze (together with Space) to the North part of Germany where the brother of the owner of Space was waiting to take them for their final trip to Finland. Blaze is most of the time pretty unregular with coming into season so we did not know exactly when to expect it but this was the perfect opportunity to have her already closeby her new lover Pikkupaimenen Zoom the Moon (Ziggy). By surprise we got a phonecall four days later to tell us she has already started her season, so we were just in time with having her in Finland. Op December 26 she was taken to Ziggy who came to a succesful mating on New Years eve (December 31, 2004). On January 16, 2005 I have flown to Finland to take her and bring her home and thankfully the flight did not cause us any problems at all.


On January 27, 2005 (day 27 of the pregnancy) we went to the vet for the ultrasound. Zeven months we got some very bad news, but this time it was very clear to see that finally our dreamcombination for years will be real in 5 weeks from now. We expect the little red/white and black/white fluffy balls beginning of March 2005!

The final 2 weeks

Also for Blaze the final 2 weeks of her pregnancy are there and she is thankfully still doing great. It is just a matter of enjoying her growing belly and waiting (im)patiently for the arrival of her first litter with red/whites. 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 can almost look the puppies out of her belly, We are so excited and curious what she will give us, it is a hard time waiting. Blaze is getting nicely big, having problems walking, still eats like crazy and sleeps a lot. Her litterbox and all other stuff is ready, so the little ones are very much welcome.
