after a very hard and stressful time with the girls in season, i decided to castrate samson and arnie.
in all 5 years of living with girls and boys together, i have never encountered such a turbulent time of male testosterone. it gave me no other option than to castrate samson who became very dominant and aggressive towards the other boys and bullied blucher.
as you are aware, i do not keep my dogs solely for breeding. First and foremost they are my family and we do not rehome, unlike some other breeders. Hence why i sought to castrate samson in the hope that this will cam him down.
Arnie was castrated as he doesnt do well with being love sick and we had hoped that his sperm would return, but have finally given up the ghost of that ever happening and he too was sent with sam for his castration.
The photos above were taken on the evening i picked them up from the vets.
Anyway. im glad to say that the ops went well and both are enjoying being back out on their walks again.
our darling sassy gave birth to louis' puppies at the beginning of August. Beautiful, chunky puppies that will be three weeks old on the 20th.
Mum and her two babies are doing great with puppies weighing in at the two week mark at 2kg.
Both puppies have homes waiting for them and both have a big brother and big sister awaiting their arrival that have had puppies from Daisy and Sassy a couple of years back.
Sassy will now be spayed in about 3 months time and retired from breeding.
Again, i do not rehome my boys or girls ... nothing changes for them.
just some updates here and there of our walks and the fun my poodles have on them. All the photos are taken by my very good friend Karen.
