Nigel x Poppins Litter - Page 1

Page 1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  

This is the diary of Messano Expialidocious JW' (Poppins) first  litter, our choice of stud dog was Multi Champion Majik Truth Or Dare (Nigel)  Bred by Liisa Lehtonen in Finland he lives in Holland with Kellly, Marco and the Dutch  Consolidation Goldens.

So, armed with her Pet Passport we set off with Poppins on the 17th May, we drove down to Dover and went on the train through the Eurotunnel, a drive through France, Belguim and Holland  and we were with Kelly by teatime (just in time for pineapple cheesecake!!) An overnight stay and another visit to Nigel the next day and we returned home. Our first trip abroad with a dog had been straightforward and trouble free. Four weeks later Poppins was scanned with a good size litter.....our mission had been successful!  

The litter was born on 18/07/2013 and there are 5 dogs and 5 bitches.

The whelping was straight-forward and 'textbook'. Poppins produced the first puppy at 08:45 am and the last at 01:05 pm. 

**** All puppies in this litter have homes arranged for them.****

We first met "Nigel" when Julie judged in Germany, he was only a youngster but his qualities took him to BOB. We fell in love with  his construction, movement and soft temperament. One day we hoped we would have the right bitch to mate to him.

18 months later and his earlier potential had been fufilled and he had matured into a stunning dog.

11/08/2012

We decided he was the perfect choice as a mate for Poppins.

Just a few days to go; we are having a heatwave, but Poppins could always find a cool place to lay.

A daytime whelping is always nice, Poppins had her first at 8.45. By 10 o'clock she had 4, 2 boys and 2 girls.

A nutritional drink goes down well between puppies, although some of them were so close together there wasn't a chance!

Having a brief nap before the last puppy arrives.
