Well It Happens!

I was careful. I mean careful.  When hunting season rolled around I made sure to keep them separated.  I didn’t want an accident or to have a huge problem again.  I really am not wanting to repeat the spring.  On the last day, of the last group of hunters. It happened. Yes, I let Jipsey out side and put Joe into the storage room of our basement. (Did I mention that they have the bar type door handles that you just have to push down to open? Well they do and Joe can open them!) I put Jipsey back upstairs, closed the door to the basement and headed over to cook cinnamon rolls for the hunters.

What a great day. The guys all left. They were a great group of hunters from Ohio. Mark and JJ were cleaning up the blinds and I headed back home to. . .   Yep you guessed it and dog with a wet behind.  I didn’t see them together. I didn’t see the deed. However I guessed my future was grim.  Oh how could I do this.

Well we are now about 2 weeks away from welcoming Jipsey’s 2nd litter of puppies. I know I am glutton for punishment. I am so praying, and praying that this litter is downsized from the 11 she produced in March.  I thought of having her fixed right after it happened. However when I emailed the owners of the puppies they all seemed so happy with them.  There were a few that have a little hyperness to them, but alas they are 7 months old.  Most are working cattle or sheep and learning quickly the rules of their ranches.

I have the pool already set up in the back room and we are in a tizzy of waiting. Jipsey is busy sleeping and eating. She has been quite upset the last couple of days because I put her on mandatory maternity leave from working cattle.  Last week while working calves, one jumped over her and landed on her back leg.  I was so scared it was going to hit right on her stomach. Therefore she is done until after the pups are born.  She doesn’t like it and makes sure that we know she doesn’t like it.

These pups will be ready to go at Christmas and this time we are keeping one. YEAH!!! I can’t wait.  The next time she comes into heat I will listen and put one in the horse trailer to stay until it is over.  But there is no going back and they will be here soon. I think I am a little calmer and Jipsey is definitely a little calmer.

Watch for pictures soon.

Ready for Pictures!
Ready for Pictures!

Well we are close to 4 weeks now. They will officially by 4 weeks on Thursday, but I am calling it close enough.  They are starting to get more rambunctious and energetic. Taking pictures was definitely more of a challenge.

I am down to only 2 boys left. I can’t believe they will be leaving me in around 3-4 weeks. We have been working on going potty on the puppy pads and so far only a couple are still going outside the pad.

I thought the photos would get easier but I guessed wrong. Here are the two week photos for the pups. They are starting to show more personality and are getting quite active.  As soon as the top numbers pick their pups I will notify the lower numbers so that picking can be finalized.  Thank you
