We have met the stud dog and he has a superb temperament and has had all the required and recommended health checks.
As such we are most hopeful that there should be some really nice puppies.
Tess I estimate will be just
over two years old at time of mating. Although the Kennel Club and our vet indicate that one year old is an acceptable age for the bitch to have her first litter, we prefer to wait and let her enjoy being a puppy for a bit longer.
Watch this space
To keep prospective puppy parents and anyone who may be interested, informed - I plan to write a blog about how Tess is coping with her future pregnancy and in due course motherhood.
