Sorry I've been away for so long---Big Kid has been having enormous issues with his mental health and brain injury and I've been exhausted. Every time I sit down to write something my mind goes blank. Don't you hate when that happens?
Well it looks like I'm going to be a grandma. That's news! It was confirmed yesterday by ultrasound.
Mad Max and Maddie managed to hook-up about six weeks ago and we're due for a litter in a few weeks.
Yes, I know how that happens. LOL That's the main reason we got Max to begin with. I wanted another Toy Aussie or two (we've always had 4 dogs) but the breeder we'd been using lives far away and increased her prices astronomically after we got Max and I really can't justify spending $2000.00 on a dog.
Why not get a shelter dog, some might ask (and have)?
Well, because I don't want to. 5 of the last 9 dogs Hubby and I have had in the last 20 years together have been shelter dogs. All but one were fantastic and very loved (the one that wasn't fantastic was loved but a total pain in the ass). I wanted a very specific breed, and fortunately they are popular so that there just aren't many breed rescues available.
We have a list of people who would love one of the puppies and were willing to wait to see if Max and Maddie made a go of it, so we've got that covered. When this is over I'm going to get them both fixed and that will be the end of it. No career as a backyard breeder for me! LOL
Poor Max. He just discovered the joys of sex and now it will be all over for him.
I'll keep you posted on our new adventure. Wish us luck!
