Ive changed now our plans for puppies. For those of you thinking I will mate sassy in early 2021, Ive decided to mate her on her next season. She looks to be coming into season now any day. We had to wait as Sassy had a litter last August time, so we must wait 12 months in between. Now when she comes in will be a year from her litter date before we mate her. In my mind I had decided to mate her 2021. But now she’s kindly obliged to do it regular ha ha.
We should get a gap of 4 weeks between the two Vizsla litters which is great, because as one comes down from the bedroom in to the focal part of the home the other should be just having them in the bedroom. We have a very large house with many rooms and several bedrooms can be emptied and turned into an extra dog room.
All my girls have been so unpredictable this year, the worst really they have ever been. For example the first vizsla I bred had seasons every 5 months, we seem to find ourselves now with girls that go minimum 7 months to 10 months max. Its not just our Vizsla as my friends all have the same problem. Then when people enquire we cant give exact timings.
In 2021 I plan on mating Roux for the first time. But because her season came later than we hoped for its pushed her 2021 litter back, so could be now February time. Since the AHT went bust this took away my local eye testing clinic. I say local it was 40 mins away. Ive found someone doing a one off day in Norfolk in September time and have sent an email to express my interest. But so far I have not heard back. This is for Glaucoma testing. Since covid all health testing stopped.
So who else could have a litter in 2021! Well we hope Ripley. Timing could be May time, as I shall bring her litter forward instead of doing it autumn time. But I hope the shows in Europe has also started as we do plan on showing Ripley in Belgium in 2021 before her first pregnancy.
As with everything, all these plans may change.
