It has been a few days since I've posted and I do apologize. I've been busy busy lately, in the tractor for three days helping my old boss out. Branding and working calves for a couple other people then driving cattle to the desert today. To the dogs, we are breeders of fine Basset Hounds and Goldendoodles. We recently had a litter of Basset pups. This is the first litter we've had conceived via Artificial Insemination. I did it if you were wondering. The papa is Gus Gus and he has 78 champions in his 7 generation pedigree which is phenomenal. Eloise is my couch dog who is now busy with her litter of nine pups. Five tri colors and four mahogany pups make up the litter. Now the dog venture is one we have been in a long time and we are still getting used to all of the ups and downs of it. It is the most time consuming and one the more difficult to do well. If you have ever thought of breeding dogs I would suggest research research and money. Quality can vary so much in dogs and you just as well be breeding the good ones and doing a good job at it. I once envisioned a kennel operation that was much larger than I now see in the future because to do it right takes alot of resources and time. Enough about my views. I do love my Basset hounds, they are very fun to be around and my kids love to have puppies to play with. Socialization is built into these pups at a young age.
Next post, I've got alot to blog on so we'll see where we can go with it. Maybe the new incubator and the gamebird operation or the heifer that wasn't supposed to be bred that calved. Or the pigeon enterprise may come up.
