Squiggle quietly returned to Melbourne about a month ago for the AI to be performed at Monash Vet Clinic and we have been waiting nervously ever since to find out if her insemination was successful! AIs have a lower chance of taking than natural matings but we were hopeful given Squiggle's first litter was also an AI, resulting in 7 beautiful healthy puppies.
My eternal thanks to will go to Zeke's owner Meiju for allowing a little piece of him to come to Australia, to Shareen at Caleebra Kennels not just for organising to get Zeke here but also for listening to my monologues about how much I love him over the last few years and of course, to Jacq for putting the combination together and helping a dream come true! We will be watching this litter very closely with the hope of bringing one of the Iolites home when they are old enough!
Zeke is a Finnish, Russian and Latvian Champion and Meiju tells us that he is very food driven, excelling at agility :D
Squiggle is of course, my little pocket rocket - with qualifications/titles in obedience, rally o, herding, flyball, agility, endurance, lure coursing as well as conformation. Even better than all that though is her awesome temperament.She is my fluffy shadow and is an amazing companion to both Zero and I.
I'm so happy that years of planning have finally come together and I can't wait to meet the "Squeaks", who are due on the 21st March. As Squiggle will be returning to Armahani to have the litter, we will be travelling to Melbourne in the lead up to the whelping. Litter updates will be
