Would anyone be interested?
One of our girls (Anna) just came into season yesterday and we intend to breed her with our boy Cooper. It occurred to me a couple weeks back that some of you may not know what all is involved in the whole process of breeding, from coming into season to the day the puppies go to their forever home.
I am thinking about starting a thread describing as best I can the whole process, beginning to end, good or bad outcomes (I pray no bad). Sometimes I might be posting every other day, such as when puppies are ready to be born, and other times not very much, such as during the pregnancy. I will also see if I can figure out how to post pictures (I'm told it's easy, but then I started in my career with a sliderule!). The reason I'm thinking about doing this is because I absolutely love breeding and thought it would be fun to share the process with other Cavalier lovers.
Let me know if this is something that would be of interest to you. If the response to this is good, I'll get started in the next 2 or 3 days.
BTW, if I get this thread going, I will welcome any suggestions, pointers, criticisms, etc. from other breeders on this list. My wife Kris and I certainly don't know it all; we're always open to learning something.
