I have not mentioned them yet, but our B litter is 4 weeks old now :). With this litter, we didn't do a live breeding since we are in California, and the stud was in Michigan. So it was our first experience with AI/TCI. As luck would have it, Kimber had to come in on Labor day weekend and mess thkngs all up lol. The breeding took place as soon as we could, and it resulted in three huge and beautiful puppies. 2 males and 1 female. Kimber was a good mom with the "A" litter, but she is excellent with this litter. I am so proud of her. The puppies seem advanced for their age. Today they discovered how to escape the whelping box, and ran down the hall to us. It was so stinking cute to see their excitement. They are showing to be very social and outgoing so far, loving all the attention they can get from any human who will give it to them. They are showing loads of confidence, as we do a lot of 1 on 1 time with them exposing them to different things. They have already been exposed to many different noises, floors and so on. I'm really excited to see what the next few weeks has in store for them. I'm loving this litter!

I have been following this litter since they were born, another excellent job. Congratulations.
So will these cuties all go to working homes as well? What are your plans? Curiosity is killing me.
And where is the pic of the puppy watching TV? That is priceless and reminded me of the 101 Dalmations movie.

Thank you! I was going to try for all working homes again, but I had a family reach out to me. They came and met Kimber and Areli, and watching the dogs play with their kids just melted my heart. So they are getting one of the males. Although they're already asking about training and what not, so who know's maybe they'll do something after all.

The female is going to a working home. I had a buyer back out for the last male. So he's still available. I haven't been pushing very hard for him, as I'm waiting to see more personality traits. Then I'll work on finding him the right type of home. Advantage of not breeding a lot and a small litter, means I get to be super selective on where they go. I'm not afraid to keep one for a while in hopes of finding the perfect fit.

The stud is Quart Aritar Bastet. Here is the mating outcome. Litter from Quart Aritar Bastet and Kimber vom True Haus

I was initially drawn to him from his pedigree. Then after conversations with his owner and people who have worked him. I liked what I heard, and most importantly, I LOVED how up front and honest his owner was about him. So I had a realistic idea of how/who he is.

OMG.. That little black puppy.. :wub:
Right?!!!! He's so freaking cool!

They are adorable-you take great pics of them
Thank you. It's all my wifes handy work. I just hold them. She snaps the photo's.

**** cute, seeing them and knowing how well your previous litter turned out has me tempted to inquire about the available male. sadly I'm still a couple weeks out from a new home so I cant be ready for another pup till we move.

Very cool- did you do fresh chilled AI?
We did fresh chilled TCI. It's where they use a camera and inject it right into the cervix. No travel time for the seamen. I asked if I could pick how many, color and sex that way, but they just looked at me funny lol. Apparently science isn't there yet. It was a learning experience for sure. We had enough for two breeding's, but because of the holiday weekend, I think we were about a day late. So we only did the one. Plus all the additional costs of doing it this way was adding up fast! So unfortunately, we only ended up with the three. After seeing how they are turning out, I wish I had more! The nice thing about having only three, is we are able to spend a lot more time with them individually.
