During the period of March 7 – 9th, Lorraine bred her bitch, GCH Chaulait’s By The Grace Of Rebel, call name Gracie, to Janet Beckett’s (Lorenc) dog, BISS GCH Vallata Lorenc’s Urban Legend, call name Austin.
March 22, 2015: Still waiting…Lorraine is hopeful, but she said that we can’t hurry Mother Nature. Stay tuned.
April 4, 2015: Gracie has not been eating all her food…a possible harbinger that she is pregnant? Strangely enough her litter mate, Jewel, is also off her feed…sympathetic doggy morning sickness symptoms? Stay tuned.
April 13, 2015: We can now confirm that Gracie is indeed pregnant with her delivery date approximately the second full week of May.
For those of you that are interested we are still accepting inquiries on this litter. To be considered you will need to complete and submit the Prospective Buyer’s Questionnaire. We currently have a sizable waiting list and are considering each and every prospective buyer carefully. There are no guarantees, expressed or implied, that there will be puppies available to buyers. We will post the availability of puppies at approximately 10 – 12 weeks after their birth.
Please understand that our dogs are our “children” and we need to ensure that they be placed in a loving and safe home environment. We do not ship our dogs to buyer(s) – it is incumbent upon the buyer(s) to come to us to take possession of the agreed upon dog.
Stay tuned to this blog for further updates, the birth announcements, and photos and news of the puppies from their birth till they are ready to go to their new homes.
April 17, 2015: Gracie has lost her sleek figure and is round as a sausage! We will continue to update her condition until B-Day!
April 23: Gracie is getting larger by the day, and she will whelp her litter possibly as soon as the first week in May. As you can see, she is quite round.
Stay tuned for further developments.
May 3, 2015: Gracie now looks like a keg on stilts. The puppies will probably arrive either later this week or beginning of next week. Have a look for yourselves.
May 7, 2015: Lorraine is hoping that Gracie can hold out until Mother’s Day, but depending on how many puppies she is carrying, it is anyones’ guess. As you can see by the photo, she is getting really, really large and is very uncomfortable. As Janet stated, she looks like a watermelon on stilts!
Here are the before and the after photos. Stay tuned…puppies will be arriving very shortly!
