I'm sure you'll be surprised! There's a big great news this year!! Guess what? PUPPIES!!!!!
Leanne finally had puppies in the end of May. I'm sure this is the biggest news in 2005.
|Since Leanne didn't get pregnant last year, I brought her to Ontario this March to breed her again.
I spent about a week in Hamilton with Leanne and my friend's two poodles. That was a very busy trip because I had to work even in Canada through internet, but I really enjoyed my second stay there.
Especially I enjoyed the snow so much! <laugh>
I really didn't expect it would snow but it did. I guess this was the first snow for Leanne and I hope she enjoyed it too.
Photo on left was taken at my friend's backyard.
|Eye screening and OptiGen 20/20 Clinic
This was another big event of the year. After I came back from Canada, my friend and I held eye screening by veterinary ophthalmologist and blood drawing for OptiGen 20/20 clinic.
On May 29, two puppies were born. Yes, Leanne had _only_ two....
Since Leanne had only two, both of them were a bit bigger and they grew so quickly after the birth. They seemed to grow hour by hour!
Believe it or not, my last breeding was done about 20 years ago. <laugh!>
|Photos above were taken when they were about 1 month old. The left one was born first. Her name is Kate and she went to my friend's home when she was 10 weeks old. Kate is really cute, has a great temperament and I'm sure she is the joy to live with. I really love her character but I gave her up because I didn't like some of her faults in conformation. Her new owner had been waiting for a SP puppy for about 5 years and I believe she should be so lucky to have Kate.
The right one is Janis, who has become our third SP.
|Poor old Nanako wasn't happy with new puppies. Leanne growled at Nanako when she approached Leanne's cage. After puppies were grown, they acted very rude to her and those little devils didn't care even if Nanako growled at them.
Nanako used to love puppies and enjoyed playing with them but now she doesn't have any interests with them. She seemed she had some hard times for a while.
