There isnt really a quote that I can find that makes it better or easier. If I eat healthy for a day, I want to reach my goal weight. If I am going on a vacation, I want to leave now.
If I am ready for a litter of puppies, I want them NOW ALREADY!!!!!!
"Of all the hardships a person had to face, none was more punishing that they simple act of waiting"

"Worth the wait"
We have been doing a lot of waiting in the last year. Waiting for our dogs to go into heat.
Waiting for their prime breeding days.
Waiting to see if they are pregnant....just to find out that they were not.
Although I still would really love to raise a litter of Bernedoodles, we are putting that on hold and going back to what we know---
I wish that the dogs were born with a gauge so we could know when they cycles were going to begin....Did you know that it is only every 6-9 months? Reign was 2 in July and has only had 1 heat cycle. The cycle begins with spotting and they will accept a male dog after about the 11th day. They are fertile for about 48 hours around day 11-14. We get progesterone tests done at the vet so that we can best determine the optimal breeding day. Since we dont own our studs, there is a lot of planning involved.
MOST of my vacation days are used traveling to studs and caring for our puppies!!
As ridiculous as it is....I have a light colored blanket in the pen that Reign sleeps in. Every morning, I hope to see some spotting. It's like in ancient days when the servants ran in to see if the queen was ready to produce an heir or not.
Nala isnt getting any younger so we are anxious for her to have an another litter. She is always the best mom and has amazing temperament puppies. She has had litters from 3 different sires and they all have been perfect.
The plan for her is to be bred to a Golden Retriever that we found on a Dog Dating site! YES...even dogs are internet dating these days.
We have heard from many people who are interested in the Reign puppies and once I post information about Nala's litter, I expect that will be well received also.
I know that people have moved on and found a puppy elsewhere, which I probably would have done too but, I know that once we do get a litter on the way...They will be awesome!!
We have had over 1 1/2 years off so Todd and I are Puppy Ready and can not wait to be back to raising some superior Goldendoodles for some very lucky families.

Until next time.
My farm is my favorite place to be. Cant wait to share what's happening here.
