I was hoping for lots of photos on the weekend but my photographer ended up far too busy. Fingers crossed we get lovely weather again next weekend and can do it then.
Ella and Louis
This is a combination I had considered for Ella's first litter but then decided to go ahead with my frozen semen and hopefully come back to doing this mating if Jacq (Armahani Kennels) was agreeable.
Luckily I got the go ahead to use Louis which i was very grateful for. Louis is a gorgeous boy who has not only done extremely well in the show ring becoming a Supreme Champion but he also has had a lot of success in dog sports. Yes, he is smart and handsome.
We planned a litter for the second half of 2013. Timing ended up being not quite right with Christmas and the heat of Summer so we held off until Ella's next season.
We made the 8 hr road trip to Melbourne late January where we were left waiting a fortnight before the timing was right to go ahead. Ella was mated very late in her season so we enjoyed our time away, making a bit of a holiday out of it.
