I just wanted to announce that Portia was artificially inseminated at 5 o'clock this evening with semen from World Champion Obi Wan Kenobi from Betelges Kennels in Serbia. The surgery went very well, according to Dr. Reiman, and we will be picking our girl up in the morning. Of course, Portia is not an average dog and she certainly made that crystal clear as she did not ovulate until day 20 which is a very rare occurrence. In fact, Slobodan Maksimovic, who is the owner of Obi has never heard of that happening in all his 30 years in the business!
It has been a very long 2 weeks and we have missed our Princess beyond words. I know that she will be so happy to be back in her castle! The work will now begin in preparation for the little cherubs and making sure mama Portia stays in tip top shape. One thing is for certain Portia's mom, Stella, was the best mom in the world and we know Portia will be a great mom too!
For those of you who have patiently been waiting for Portia puppies the projected due date will be April 24th give or take a day or two.
Of course, I will continue to keep you all up to date.
