Seasons Greetings.

We went to the Bridgewater & District Canine Society show this last Sunday and, although Phoenix stacked nicely and moved like a dream, when the judge came to do his examination she decided she didn’t want to be handled at all, especially from behind, which lead us to think (and several onlookers to comment) that she was probably coming into season.

This was confirmed the next day she was noticeably swollen, and then yesterday, just 8 days short of her 1st birthday, she “officially” started her season, the first of her litter to do so. So far she’s completely unaffected, maybe a tad more clingy (even more clingy!) than usual, but she’s in no discomfort, is full of energy, and it’s just business as usual as far as she’s concerned, so hopefully all will pass smoothly!

Actually she’s managed to time it pretty much perfectly – the clever girl! – and we’ll only miss one last local show that’d she’d booked into as a puppy before taking a well-earned rest for most of the winter.

What's all the fuss?

    My short hair V has her beat.. she came in at 9 months.. the youngest the breeder has had to date.. Her mom was over 13 months, and her grandma was more like 15 I think.. and her sister waited till at least over a year.. we’re due for another soon.. she has increased her clingy-ness already.. (really she is not really all that clingy to begin with.. think I had a hand in creating that).. I find she has a tad less energy.. and just seems to be out of sorts and doesn’t know what to do with herself.. but outside of having to keep exercise to a leash, it’s not too bad.
    Nice to find another V blog. I shall keep watching. Just started Luna’s blog
    Take care
