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.
