My next dachshund breeding will be Jersey (CH. Kaycees JT's Too Tough To Tame at Galewinns) bred to "Howie"  CH. Harbormyst's Beach Boy ML.  This will be a repeat breeding as I did this breeding and had a singleton puppy, Miss Caper (Galewinns Kaycees Partners In Crime ML).  I absolutely LOVE her and am so pleased with her temperament and conformation that I am going to repeat the breeding in hopes of getting a bigger litter.  Jersey should be coming into season sometime in September/October 2013.  Inquiries for show and pet homes welcome.

Oct. 25, 2013 - Jersey is in season!! 

Nov. 4-7, 2013 -
Jersey is bred.  If she is pregnant puppies will be due Jan 4-6th.  Keep your fingers crossed....

Dec. 11, 2013 - I didn't have time to ultrasound Jersey due to my work schedule.  However, I did listen to her with my doppler last night and I definately heard puppy heartbeats!!!  So YES...she is pregnant.  I will do an xray the beginning of January to get a definite count.  She is due the 4-6th of January.  Also of note, her aunt Sasha was bred at the same time...and she is pregnant with 4-5 puppies.  So...Sherry will have Sasha's litter and I will have Jersey's litter.  So excited...

Jan. 4th, 2014 - Well, I xrayed Jersey today....only 1 puppy again!  Yes, I am bummed but when I think about how special Miss Caper is out of Jersey's first litter I can't be upset - just optimistic that this puppy will be every bit as nice with the same "too-die-for" temperament.  Stay tuned...

Jan. 7th, 2014 - Well...after 12 hours of labor and 5 hours of pushing (seriously!) we have a darling 6 oz silver dapple little girl!  She is beautiful and came out screaming so the long labor didn't seem to bother her at all.  And...Jersey did it with NO c-section so I was thrilled.  Tired but thrilled. lol  Stay tuned for and baby are doing great!

Jan 10th, 2014 - Sasha developed a little bit of mastitis so we brought one of her babies to my house for my Jersey to take care of.  This way I also don't have to raise a singleton - my little girl will have a brother!  Jersey has taken him under her care with no problem - he is gaining weight nicely.  The two puppies are so darn cute together!

Jan 15th, 2014 - Both puppies are doing great - gaining weight nicely.  They are starting to get around more - they easily find mom and the milk now.  Jersey is such a protective mother - hard to get her to leave the puppies at all!!

Feb. 18th, 2014 - Puppies are doing great- 6 weeks old already!  Very active and playing with each other and they love toys!  Sorry I haven't posted in a bit - I have been gone on vacation and went to Westminster Dog show.  And guess what - our dog Rascal (CH. Kaycees Galewinns Starburst At Wagsmore MLD) won the breed and was on TV!!!  How cool was that - and I am so glad I was there to see it in person.  Rascal is a half-brother to the little boy and a cousin to the girl (confusing I know!).
