A second dog!
We are absolutely delighted to announce that our search for a second dog has ended. We have decided to adopt Essie from Loki's breeder. She is 3 years. In her last pregnancy, she only had one pup and she had to have a c-section. Apparently, when you only have one pup, labor is harder, because there are no other pups to help stir labor. (But what happens to the last pup of every pregnancy? Isn't that the same?) In any case, there were sufficient complications that she required a c-section, and consequently, she will no longer be bred.
Right now, she is still being a mother to her little pup, so we will have to wait a couple of months before we get her.
