It is with very heavy heart...

that I have to tell you that I don't believe we will be having puppies.  I am heart broken and devastated.  And I am sorry.  So sorry.  All you wonderful people who have been waiting so long to receive a Guardian Angel puppy.  I know you are heartbroken as well.  I am so sorry.  A huge part of my disappointment is feeling like I've let you all down.  I have done absolutely everything in my power to ensure the health and well-being of my dogs.  And in doing so, there should have been a bunch of little, squeaking puppies born.  I have no reason why this happened.  Cruz is healthy, happy, the correct weight, eating the required calories to maintain a litter of puppies, being exercised but not overly exercised etc. etc. 

For the first time in my breeding career, I decided to have Cruz ultrasounded to give everyone some peace of mind as we waited for puppies.  I always worry that the girls didn't catch and fret up until the week before they are born.  There were so many people waiting for puppies I wanted to relieve everyone's curiosity/worry.  So what happens?!  I do the ultrasound.  For the first time I have medical verification and what happens!  I'm so sorry.

You may be wondering why I didn't say anything up until now.  It was because I was hoping that the fact that she was not gaining weight was because she only had 1 or 2 puppies.  A female can hide 1-2 puppies quite well.  I wanted to wait until today to be sure of what I was telling you.  I believe we have no puppies coming because she has no milk.  Milk generally comes in only a few days before the puppies are born.  There is no milk.  There are no puppies.  I'm so sorry.

All I can do is dry my eyes and continue to do the best I know how.  To all of you;  I'm incredibly sorry.

The "non-refundable" deposit will be refunded for those who ask.  For those of you I have already spoken to privately and would like to continue with me, I am incredibly honoured to have your trust and confidence.

The Excitement is Official! We're having puppies!!!

Cruz & Merlin are having puppies!!  It's official!  The vet said so!! 

For the first time in my life, I decided to get an ultrasound done to see if my Girl is pregnant.  There are so many people who have waited so long, that I really wanted to get them the news as soon as possible.  And the news is GOOD!  Cruz will be having puppies around October 31st!  Everybody here is excited because it has been over a year since our last litter.  It's a very long time to wait but the ethical breeder in me will not do anything that may jeopardize the well-being of my dogs.  If Mother Nature says 1 year, then 1 year it is!

Here's looking forward to a bunch of squirming little furballs!!
