|1/24/16 UPDATE! The pups were (finally) delivered tonight via c-section. Dareya never went into labor and then a massive snow storm hit the mid-Atlantic coast and we were trapped at home. Luckily, we were able to save 5 of the 7 puppies. We have 4 boys and 1 girl; 1 boy is traditional liver and tan, 2 boys will end up light colored with liver noses, and 1 boy will be light colored with a black nose. The girl will be light colored with a liver nose. |
All of the D litter have moved on to their new homes. I'm happy to report all are doing well! I look forward to seeing them growing up.
1/15/2016 UPDATE! Dareya's xray shows 7 puppies waiting to join us. I'm hoping for that 8th, but we'll be thrilled with whomever shows up. The room has been set up and the webcam should be turned on Thursday. Please keep checking in if you'd like to follow the litter on the web. You can find us at UStream, either through the link or search for Ironquest Otterhounds.
**UPDATE** Dareya is pregnant and we are expecting approximately 8 pups around Jan 21st. Please keep an eye on this page for information on the pups and eventually the webcam.
We are hoping to welcome the D Litter sometime early 2016. The plan is for this to be Dareya's first litter. Please contact me if you are interested in being on the list.
Update! As of Nov 10, Dareya is in season. We are planning to breed her to Sawyer, GCH DeKenchar's Nozebody's Perfect. I'm excited about the combination of pedigrees in terms of health, temperament and conformation.
Dareya has her CHIC number with her OFA Good hips, DNA submitted, and Clear Glanzmann's Thrombosthenia test. Her health information can be found at http://www.offa.org/display.html?appnum=1419805#animal and her pedigree at http://clubs.akc.org/ohca/htmframes/ALdareya.htm
