The breeding was a lot of work - it was cold here so breeding outside was not working. We did indoor breedings every other day and a couple AI's just to make sure.

We did progesterone testing, which is very hard here. It costs $100 each time you do it, and has to be sent to a lab down south, so you don't get the results until the following day. We did 4 or 5 progesterone tests, can't remember how many for sure.

Here is the sire:
Wales vom Lytle
OFA Hips: Good, Elbows OFA: Normal, Heart: OFA Normal, Thyroid OFA: Normal.

Here is the Dam:
Lynx vom Lytle
OFA Hips: Good, Elbows OFA: Normal, Heart OFA: Normal, Thyroid OFA: Normal

We could totally do a "guess how many puppies". I will get photos of the xrays and everyone can guess, maybe on due date too!
