I copied this from an email I got regarding Giving Tuesday this past December, and I wanted to share it. They say it way better than I could. Giving Tuesday is a global movement and not just a fundraising day. It's all about giving: Your time, your talent, your money, your support to bring more generosity in an incredibly self centered world. I am happy to be a part of that day and of that revolution. Thank you all for your continued support of B.E.S.T. Changing the world one dog at a time!
I had posted that we would have some exciting news this week and we certainly did! but there was bad news as well. We were hoping to hear the Starry had finally conceived and we would be expecting a litter. However, it was not to be. We did everything EXACTLY right, dates, many, many tests, many vet visits, Artificial Insemination and no pups on the ultrasound. Even our reproductive specialist, Dr. Bruce Christensen, was at a loss as to why this happened. I am devastated as she is the daughter of my dear Skye who's pedigree goes back to my first dog I bred in the early 90's. We will try one more time next year, but she will be done after that.
Well it's been a bit since I wrote, but we have been patiently waiting for Starry girl to start her cycle so we could have some puppies! We had hoped for 2 litters this year, but it wasn't to be. Starry has waited almost exactly a year to begin her cycle and we had to give it a little push with some medication. We are still waiting although things look promising. She has been to the vet weekly ($$) for the last month and she still walks in with a
happy trot even though she must know they are going to poke her again.
