More puppies on the way…

Today we did a scan on our DdB Vesper and pregnancy has now been confirmed, allthough only a small litter. Vesper has been mated to the Italian male Borderline de la Bulle Rouge, we had chilled semen sent from Italy, so we have really been crossing our fingers that the insemination was succesful – and luckily it was. ;o) So, it is going to be a busy puppy-summer this year! We are expecting a PBGV litter around July 1st from Carla, and Vesper’s DdB puppies will arrive 3 weeks later. It is the first time we have 2 litters at the same time, so we need to make some practical arrangements in the house, but we are looking very much forward to a real DOG summer this year! ;o) You can find the full pedigree for both litters in the Planned Litters section with pictures and titles of all ancestors,…

Puppies on the way

Our PBGV Around Yes Powerdrop “Carla” went into heat end of April and we decided to breed her – and thereby hoping for puppies instead of a summer vacation this year. ;o) Carla was therefore mated to Fodnote You’re My Favorite and she has now been scanned and pregnancy has been confirmed. The summer vacation abroad has therefore now officially been cancelled and we are looking forward to the arrival of a PBGV litter in the beginning of July. ;o) Below picture of the father of the litter, Fodnote You’re My Favorite. Furthermore, we are hoping for a Dogue de Bordeaux litter as well this summer, as North-End Bordeauxs Akane “Vesper” has been mated, however pregnancy has not yet been confirmed. More info on this litter will follow as soon as pregnancy (hopefully) will be confirmed.

No sign of heat just around the corner…

We were hoping that Carla’s heat would start just around the year end, but there is no sign of her heat starting anytime soon… She had a “sort-of” heat end of October, but the heat never started properly, so we didn’t count this as a real heat. We thought that she would start a proper heat when Vesper went into heat in December, but nothing happened… We therefore now believe that the October heat did count as a heat after all, and that she won’t be in heat again until 6 months after, which means end of April. So, as it looks right now, there won’t be any update on a coming PBGV litter until April/May… As soon as Carla is in heat and has been mated, we will update our page. ;o)

Back to normal

Everything is back to normal after the DdB puppies left in September – well, two of them left and the last one, Valka, stayed with us. ;o) Valka is developing just like a normal DdB puppy – long legs, long nose, big ears! I am sure she will grow into proportions again later on, but at this age most DdB puppies look funny, so she is developing fully according to plan… ;o) We are waiting for our PBGV female Carla to start her heat…nothing yet, but it should be just around the corner. We will breed her in her upcoming heat, more info on that will follow in our Planned Litters page shortly. All the PBGV youngsters (Peanut, Whiskey and Humle) are doing great and just enjoying life in the countryside, although we are a bit sad that we are not able to show them, as all shows are cancelled…

Pregnancy confirmed and new PBGV

All good news in this newspost! Vesper has been scanned and the mating to Freak was successful – puppies are on the way! Vesper is due end of July and we can’t wait to have DdB puppies in the house again! :o) Also, we have picked up our latest addition to the PBGV pack today at Kennel Around in Sweden; Around Keeping The Dream Alive “Humle”. We were very excited about this mating and absolutely thrilled, that Annicka would let us buy one of the female puppies. Our pack of dogs has welcomed Humle as if she had always lived here, such a joy. This video is taken just an hour after she arrived: IMG_6597

New PBGV & planned DdB litter

It’s about time for an update! Let me start by saying, that it is not lack of news that’s the reason for the quiet time in our news section…only lack of time. ;o) A lot has happened – first of all our latest addition to our PBGV pack; the adorable Black Majesty No Strings Attached “Peanut”. We picked up Peanut in Croatia in the beginning of March – just before the corona lock-down. Peanut is such a sweatheart with the best temper ever and she very quickly became best friends with our homebred Whiskey, who is two weeks younger. The two pups are now really enjoying eachother’s company – chasing each other from one end of the house to the other or just curling up together in a dog bed for a nap. :o) Both Peanut and Whiskey have been added to the “Our PBGVs” page, and we hope to…

Puppies born – bitter/sweet update

On January 22nd Carla’s puppies were born. Two BIG boys! In fact so big, that she couldn’t deliver them herself, and we ended up with a C-section. Everything looked fine for the first three days, both boys (one tricolor and one orange) were growing as they should – but after three days, the tricolor male started to loose weight. We off course immediately started to bottle-feed him as a supplement to Carla’s milk, but it was more or less impossible to get him to gain weight, as he wasn’t eager at all to eat and didn’t want to take the bottle. Also, his breathing seemed more strained as the days passed and finally – 9 days old – he gave up and passed away. Needless to say, we were all heartbroken for the little guy. So, Carla now only has one orange boy left, but luckily he seems to be…

PBGV puppies – pregnancy confirmed!

After two years with no puppies, we are so happy to announce that we are finally awaiting PBGV puppies again! Around Yes Powerdrop “Carla” has been bred to the lovely male Around Mixed Breed and the pregnancy has been confirmed. The scan however showed, that Carla is only carrying two puppies, so only a small litter. The birth date has been set to January 22nd 2020. :o) Our DdB female North-End Bordeauxs Akane “Vesper” was also bred in the beginning of this month, but unfortunately the pregnancy scan showed that she is empty. :o( We will breed her again in her next heat in May/June 2020 to the same male Herry Dogue del Monticano and hopefully the next time we will have more success.

Planned PBGV litter

Carla went into heat on May 26th so hopefully a litter of PBGVs is on it’s way… ;o) We will be doing the first progesterone-test on Carla on Monday to determine the right time for breeding her. And hopefully before the end of next week she will be mated to the wonderful Petit Heroes Canned Heat “Otto”. If everything goes well, puppies will arrive in the beginning of August. ;o) You can find the pedigree for the litter here.
