Sept. 28, 2020 Exciting News!

September 28, 2020:  Malcolm and Tessa mated naturally today, so I know definitely that there will be puppies.  They will be due around November 30th.  I have put a copy of his pedigree below:

 

And since the parents of Piper have passed away in Idaho, I will be trading a female from Piper and Merrybelle for a female directly from Call to Glory champion bloodlines in Argentina.  I am excited about that!

And once I purchase some of Fred and Marion Krupp’s Marguerite Kirmse’s Scottish Terrier etchings, I will own 50 of her etchings!

Sept. 25, 2020: Whelping time is getting closer!

September 25, 2020:  Ava should whelp in a little over a week.  She is really getting bigger.  Heather Claire is doing well too.  I hope to get Tessa bred to Malcolm today.  These should produce some silver brindles.  Malcolm and Tessa were bred artificially today.  The person who does it comments that my Scotties have a bad case of mommaitis.  Instead of focusing on Tessa, Malcolm kept looking up at me to see what he was to do.  He had spent days trying to mate with Tessa, so I thought it would be within seconds that Jane would have them tied.  But he just didn’t seem interested, so it was done artificially.

I have decided on a name for the female puppy I will keep from Heather Claire.  Since she was bred with Piper, she will be related to Sadie, the Westminster BIS in 2010 and has the kennel name of Roundtown.  She will also be related to the no. 1 Scottie in the world in 2005, Mafioso, from Call to Glory bloodlines in Argentina.  She will be named Herron’s Glorious Roundtown Romance in Rodanthe and will be called Margo.

Sept. 24, 2020: Whelping time is finally approaching!

September 24, 2020:  Ava’s mammary glands are filling up with milk.  She is quite heavy.  She is due in a week and a half.  Heather Claire is smaller, but she has three weeks to go.  I am taking Malcolm and Tessa over to Jane Hammett’s in the morning for a natural breeding of the two.  Although, Tessa has had two litters, Malcolm is only two and needs some guidance to do the deed.  Jane is great and quite the character.  She was on series five of Survivor.

I have named the girl I am going to keep from Heather Claire to preserve that red wheaten gene.  She will be named Herron’s Glorious ( Call to Glory bloodlines in Argentina) Roundtown ( from Sadie’s 2010 Westminster Best in Show) Romance in Rodanthe.  I will call her Margo

Whelping time is getting close!

September 24, 2020:  Ava’s mammary glands have started filling up with milk.  She is quite big.  Heather Claire is on the smaller size, but she has three weeks to go.  Ava is down to two weeks left to go.  I am taking Tessa and Malcolm to be bred naturally at Jane’s place in Jackson Springs tomorrow.  She was on series 5 of Survivor.  She is every bit the character.  But she usually is spot on with breeding.  I am hoping once he sees how to do it, he can continue to do it on his own.  Malcolm is two had has never been bred.  Then I will be breeding Bonnie and Biper.  They are going to make some cute puppies.  Tessa and Malcolm’s will be more silver brindle in color.

I have named the female I am going to keep from Heather Claire and Piper.  She is going to be named Herron’s Glorious (Call to Glory bloodlines) Roundtown (from Sadie’s 2010 BIS at Westminter)  Romance in Rodanthe.  I will call her Margo.
