Last week, Annie, (HRCH Blazingstar Beaufort CDX SH) was bred to Doc (Ch Black Walnut Asclepius MH AX OAJ WCX HOF) using frozen semen. Doc was an exceptionally accomplished dog in both fieldwork and agility (the HOF means FCRSA Hall of Fame). Annie is a daughter of Huxley and Lupine, and sister to Tinbie and Teva.
Doc carried liver, so both black and liver puppies are expected. If it has worked, the puppies will be due in late February, at Songdog kennels in southern Indiana.
Of course Annie's timing could not have been much worse..... Brian and Katy had to drive through massive amounts of snow to get to the reproduction clinic in Minnesota. We were very relieved to hear that they got there and back safely.
