Vesper’s puppies have arrived! Not everything went as we had hoped during birth and not all puppies made it into this world alive, but we have a beautiful litter now of 3 female puppies – one week old today and all doing well. ;o) Today the puppies got their colored collars, so it’s easier to tell them apart quickly – we now have a yellow girl, a purple girl and a light pink girl. ;o) We will keep one of the puppies ourselves and the other two puppies already have wonderful families waiting for them, so there are no puppies available.
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
Vesper was mated last week to North-End Bordeauxs Touchdown “Freak” and according to the bloodtests and the vet who performed the insemination, everything looked right and the timing was spot-on. ;o) So now there is nothing left to do but to keep our fingers crossed that DdB puppies are on the way. ;o) We will do a pregnancy scan on Vesper end of June and we will off course post the result here in the news section, as soon as we know.
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…
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…
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.
We are very happy to announce that we have a planned litter of Dogue de Bordeauxs at the end of the year. :o) We have chosen to breed our female North-End Bordeaux’s Akane “Vesper” to a lovely male from Italy, Herry Dogue Del Monticano. See the entire pedigree for the upcoming litter in our Planned Litter section, where you can also find pictures of the ancestors as well as all available HD and AA results in the pedigree. Pictures below of Herry Dogue Del Monticano.
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.
