Being able to breed two of your own top dogs is a dream for every kennel. This combination was a match made in heaven and we feel ourselves blessed to have those 2 in our lives! Emi and Kitsu were totally in love with eachother, their mating was exactly like they are ‘fast, active, happy and with lots of fun’. We can’t wait to see what kind of surprise they have for us!
Emi is a sweet, loving and easygoing girl, who adores to spend time with us. She has an excellent working drive, extreme focus and incredible ground speed, she always pushes herself to perform 200%. She is a very healthy girl, has been tested for all current genetic / health tests and with her caring attitude we know she will be a great mother to her pups. She is also an athlethic, femine girl with moderate bone, a nice topline and a dense coat, much like her mom.
Kitsu is our goofy boy with a very soft and sweet temperament. Kitsu’s enthousiasm is very contagious and he has a lovely working spirit. Kitsu has a beautiful dark coat and is an excellent mover, he is also a strong swimmer. He is a healthy boy, genetically tested for all current genetic / health tests and is a perfect match for Emi. We expect high drive puppies from this combination with a sound temperament and we are very excited about their future.
On their own Kitsu and Emi are wonderful dogs, but can you imagine what happens when they merge together and create a next generation!
We are following Emi’s progesteron level to see what would be the best day for putting them together. On the 20th and the 21st of January, the love birds had 2 succesful natural matings in the snow, so now fingers crossed.
On the 18th of February it was finally time for the ultrasound, the vet counted 7 puppies on the echo, all with strong heartbeats, we are very happy with this news. Now the official countdown has started!
On day 61 after the first mating, Emi gave birth to 7 beautiful puppies on a cold and dark night. After a short powernap, Emi woke us and after 10 minutes her first puppy was born. Within 2,5 hours 6 boys and 1 sweet girl were born, what a speedy delivery for a first time mom. A proud Emi gave us 7 little active bundles of joy, all are doing great. Little Mr. Brown struggled a bit with reflux the first 2.5 weeks, but as soon as he started with meat, he completely turned around. Emi is a very sweet mom and takes excellent care of her little wonders, she’s a natural and has a huge milk factory. Right after birth, Emi ran outside, took a few laps, running full speed, came back in and layed down with her puppies, just like she is, caring but full of energy! We are looking forward to the next 9 weeks!
