Moose and Journey should be expecting their litter at the end of June or beginning of July after a fresh chilled semen breeding was performed last Sunday. My thanks go to Bill and Sandy, as well as Trevor and Carrie for getting both dogs to their respective clinics Ohlney-Sandy Springs in Maryland where the collection took place, and Elizabeth Street Pet Hospital in Okotoks Alberta, where the transcervical AI took place. Everything went really well, and now we just wait to see whether it was successful. We will run a relaxin test on Journey to determine if she is pregnant, in a couple of more weeks, and at that point I will begin taking deposits.
Can Ch Russell's Jack of all Trades continues to do well with Lindsey Wendell at AKC shows picking up another single yesterday. I cannot wait for him to be done, and to get back home so we can hit the trials again.
Russell's Make Mine Meg has gone down to Kelli Aitken in Kansas to be shown, and hopefully Kelli will get to run her in some field events in the fall as Meg is beginning to show broke on her birds. This young dog is proving to be very easy to train.
Hope's retrieve training is coming along well, and with any luck we will be able to hit the AKC Hunt test/CKC Field Dog tests this summer.
