    Hello again. The puppies are 3 weeks old and all are doing very well. We are entering a phase of extreme adorableness (word?), as they are walking & talking and starting interacting with each other...

    They are soooo cute! I think you are very wise to keep your distance. Our Deerhound puppies are 3 weeks old now, and I can see it will be VERY, VERY hard to let any of them go!

    Off to update my...

    UPDATE: I changed my mind (again) and entered the show.

    Our canter will still suck - but oh well. But I'm actually getting wonderful stretchy rein from him - which has never happened before. It's...

    Haha Bicoastal - Deerhound puppies are raptors for their first 2 years - capable of demolishing your dining room table in 30 minutes or under. Once past 2 years, they are the most quiet and dignified...

    Eyes are not open yet, but we are expecting any day.

    The C-section would not hurt any future showing - except to wait for her coat to grow back where it was shaved on her belly. She is already a...

    Yes, I'd agree 16 weeks is unusually long to keep puppies for evaluation. But it was stipulation with stud dog breeder. She has produced 9 or 10 National Specialty winners over the past 30 years and...

    Arizona DQ - So cool! What a small world, right? Yes I know of your friend, though I never met her in person! My puppies sire is from Lehigh and their grandsire is a Jaraluv dog. :-)

    Polydor - Haha, that is the million dollar question! But the short answer is picks will be made by 16 weeks. Pups that have obvious faults can go to new homes prior to that.

    Puppies on Day 6. All doing well and steadily gaining weight.

    ps... What I've learned as first-time breeder: I will never, EVER again question or argue the price of a well-bred purebred puppy,...

    ps... regarding sleep... my husband and I are proud parents of identical twin sons. They did not sleep thru the night for first TWO years.

    So, although we are older now (our sons are 16 years...

    Haha Houndhill!!! You have SUCH a discerning eye! Definitely one or two National Specialty/BIS winners. My bet is on Blue Boy and Red Girl. Although White & Purple girls look very competitive. But...

    Sorry for delay in checking back in. Lyric ended up having a C-section - so it's been an exhausting 48 hours. I'm happy to say, she is making a good recovery so far, and is just a super star. I love...

    Awww... thanks cowboymom

    I just want to say - to any haters of breeders (aside from puppy mills, of course) - you have NO idea!!!! I'm newly enlightened, for sure!

    So thank you and hats off to...

    Houndhill - I will listen and thank you! I've heard the same. Warm but not too warm. And we don't want her stressed.

    Her temp dropped this morning (Sunday). We are anticipating a whelping late...

    Thanks cowboymom - all great advice. We are going the cheap sheets route, have a scale, and insane amount of paraphernalia. :-)

    I've sent my husband to town to get more wine. I think we also...

    Still no drop in temp (as of Saturday morning), so yet another day of waiting. Ugh!

    Thank you Marshfield - I sent you a pm!

    Yes, we had progesterone testing done before breeding - so I know approximate time of her LH surge. She was uncooperative with live cover, so she was bred...

    Thanks Houndhill!!! Yes, the corners are for sitting on!! I've gotten so many thumbs ups from experienced breeders on those built-in seats. I'm thinking whelping litters must be hard on the back -...

    Oh yes... I have tons of pictures! You'll be sorry you asked, but thanks!

    I've had some exposure to Native Americans and their culture during the time I was involved in Nokota horses - particularly the Sioux. And yes, many do find terms such as redskin very offensive.

    Thanks TickleFight - I do have great kids. :-)

    Here is video of Intro C test where we scored 69%. I was wrong - this was in 2012, not last year. Sigh....
