Puddin' and Teagol consummated their relationship last weekend and their last mating together was on Wednesday. So now it's just waiting. Will hope to scan her around 28 days from her last mating to confirm if in pup or not. If our vets are happy to do so, as of yet they are still only doing emergency procedures.
I can normally tell by palpation around 28 to 35 days if in pup, but I still prefer to use a scan to be sure before announcing to the public and it also lets me know roughly how many pups to be prepared for when they whelp. If I cannot scan it will be the old fashion method of watching and waiting a bit longer before confirmation of pregnancy.

“Humans are aware of very little, it seems to me, the artificial brainy side of life, the worries and bills and the mechanisms of jobs, the doltish psychologies we've placed over our lives like a stencil. A dog keeps his life simple and unadorned.” Brad Watson, Last Days of the Dog-Men: Stories
Welcome to this blog. I am Jane, a hobby breeder, situated in North Devon, England, UK (map at bottom of page ,shows where we are) on a quest to breed a healthier small spaniel similar to the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
WE DO NOT EXPORT PUPPIES
Why I don't export
Our breeding dogs are multi generational extensively health tested. With all our breeding stock having recommended and relevant DNA tests for their breed/breeds. We also have breeding stock annually eye examined on the BVA Hereditary Eye Disease Scheme for dogs, MRI scanned on the BVA scheme using the BVA chiari malformation /syringomyelia breeding protocol, and heart examined using The Kennel Club Heart Scheme for Cavalier King Charles breeding protocol
