These past few days have been important ones for us! Over the weekend we visited Dr. Hutchison at Animal Clinic Northview and he performed a transcervical AI. After one more AI our part of the breeding will be complete. The rest will be left up to nature! Shiloh's due date based on the breeding is October 13th. If she delivers on the projected date that would mean the puppies will be 10 weeks old and ready for their new homes on Thursday, December 22nd. That will be quite a Christmas gift!
I do already have our ultrasound scheduled, so I can provide an official date to announce the number of puppies expected in the litter. We are scheduled to return to Ohio to see Dr. Hutchison on September 6th at precisely 2:15 in the afternoon. I will bring my phone with me at that point so I can post the results, here, on the blog. We are very excited and are praying there will be beautiful, healthy pups growing in Shiloh over the next few months. I will let you know if there are any further developments, and please let me know if you have any questions or comments. You can email me or you can even post right on the blog.
I hope these last few weeks of summer are memorable for you all. I know our family is going to try to squeeze all of the fun we can out of the sunshine before school resumes. These vacation months are going by so fast! I am certain that the next 3 weeks of waiting for the results of the ultrasound will also pass by quickly. Time sure does fly when you are having fun! May each of your precious moments count...
