And now we wait. Also: 0_0

After being cute and charming at my house for a week, Eva went home with Sarah on Sunday, hopefully with some proto-puppies on board.  And now we wait.  Why is it we can put men in orbit around the Earth, but can’t come up with an accurate EPT for dogs?

Assuming one or more of the AIs took, Eva should have babies end of April/first of May.  If there are puppy buyers looking for blacks or blues, be sure to contact Sarah.    I believe she may have one or two pet-puppy spaces open on her list, if she hasn’t gotten more since we talked.  I did try to impress upon Magnum that we’d really like to see a lot of blue girls, but he’s a boy.  He doesn’t always listen so well.

Hey, speaking of Magnum, did y’all know that sometimes as a result of breeding or of collecting a male for an AI, some of the blood vessels in the penis can rupture, leading to days of occasional blood drippage?  I didn’t!  But apparently that’s the case.  No fever, pus-like discharge, or any other indication of infection.  And Magnum acts completely like himself, running around and ready for fun.  In fact, his reaction was pretty much nil.  Mine, on the other hand, went something like this:


OMG MY DOG’S PENIS IS BLEEEEEEEDING!!!!!!!!!!!!  OMG WTF?!!!!!!!!  ACKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The IMs I sent out seeking counsel on this issue were a little less panicked-sounding, as were the assurances I gave my mother (who had Magnum at her house by then), but I assure you, that’s basically what was going on on the inside.  I’ve since been assured that it is not unheard of and is not that big a deal, just watch for any signs of brewing infection etc., so I’ve relaxed a bit, but DAMN.

Dog breeding.  Isn’t it romantic?
