We have just got back from the vets after taking Kez our German Shepherd for blood to be taken for a progesterone test to check the levels to see what part of her mating cycle she is in and when she is liable to ovulate, so we can have her mated. We tried to mate her in March but it was a bit hit and miss without a test, so this season we are not taking a chances. On saying that it could be we have missed it. If we haven’t the test will give us a good idea of when she ovulates and if we need to test again. The test are very accurate and the results we will know tomorrow. We are keeping our fingers crossed.

Tass our other bitch was from Pup another dog we had bred but she did not get pregnant. We subsequently found out that the dog we were using was not fertile. It was a shame for up to Tass she was the fourth generation, all have been great dogs, being very kind and loyal. Tass is now getting on for twelve, as she didn’t have puppies we had to purchase Kez. Kez is also a very kind and a loyal dog. Everyone who knows oue dogs believe she is related to Tass. She has taken our two new miniature Dachshunds puppies as her own as has Tass and the pair of them mothered the two puppies from them first being introduced.

The dog we hope to mate Kez with is Benson a white long haired German Shepherd. He has the same temperament as our German Shepherds. Very kind, loyal and no malice. If she has puppies we will keep one to carry on to after Kez. I will let you know the results of the test.
