Lucy on the way to meet her boyfriend


Is time to introduce Lucy and Barnum from Elevage Imier Kennel (Quebec). Looks like Lucy like this pretty boy, they play, but she was not really interested in the closer contact first day. The next two days Lucy was much more friendlier :-)))
I hope breeding was successfully done and we will have nice healthy puppies.
Thanks to Nicole Racine  and her husband for them hospitality was my pleasure to meet you guys.

Pregnancy confirmed
Today we get confirmation by our veterinarian “Lucy is pregnant” and we expecting 5 or 6 puppies.

30.6.2012
We have puppies

After all week measuring Lucy’s temperature everything seams normal, just yesterday she had a bit lower reading, but today looks like is still not right time. She was with me on backyard afternoon and then we went in and I fell asleep watching TV. When I wake up Lucy is on Matysek bed and beside her looks to me is my shoe. Max and Gia was beside the bed. As I’m getting up talking to Max and Gia how bad they are they take my shoe, but when I come closer I see that is not my shoe, but s a PUPPY!!! Exactly what I did not want to happen...puppy was born with assistance of our younger dogs Max and Gia. The first one was a Girl “RED”. Rest of them was already born in a litter box and with my assistance. No complication, everything went nice and smooth. Lucy taking care of them and she is a proud mom of 6 puppies ( 3 boys and 3 girls ).
CONGRATULATION  LUCY and BARNUM (daddy)
WELL  DONE

Puppies growing

Our puppies are 1 month old today, everybody eat already puppy's food, mom still nursing them a bit but is not enough. All pups are playful, they like toys, our older dogs Gia and Max but the happiest they are if they can crawl on you and cuddle with you, they want all your attention. And here is progress on weight.

Max is back in the show ring
MUSKOKA KENNEL CLUB ALL BREED DOG SHOW
Held in Bracebridge Ontario

After a few months absence from the show ring due to his sister Lucy nursing ,Max went to the show ring for very first time by himself without Lucy or Matysek and also very first time in specialty class as a Canadian Champion. And how its go? He was very calm….finally show nicely at the breed level in both shows and get BOB. At the group level he probe he still a puppy :-) he was scared of Black Russian terrier who was right behind...so no group placement, but over all good show.
