We’ve just bred Rowan and Leia, so we’re hoping for Christmas puppies. Of course, Mark was away while all the breeding was happening, so I got to deal with a stud dog who doesn’t like mommy to watch. Thankfully, Leia is confident and easy going even though she hadn’t done this before so I just left them alone to do their thing and they managed very well without me. Lesson for me – letting nature take its course works just fine (there’s a rumour that I’m a control freak – don’t know where that comes from). Now we wait and see what Mother Nature brings us.
