30-05-2010: If there is anything that I have learned this weekend is to listen to your "inner feelings". Yesterday it was day 64 of Whisper's pregnancy and there was no sign what so ever that something was wrong. She was happy, felt good, ate and drank well. Also the fact that she was kind of "late" was no reason for concern since it is not so uncommon to have a longer period of pregnancy when there is a small litter expected. Many colleague breeders and friends from all over did tell me not to worry and just wait. But somehow I felt restless inside and so yesterday morning I took Whisper to the vet. Better one visit too much than one visit too less. After the vet did his check-up and heard my story there was no reason for him as well to think something was wrong. To reassure me he performed an ultrasound......it showed that Whisper had only 1 puppy with her and it was dead! :o(. With Caesarean operation the puppy was taken out. It was a beautiful baby-boy, fully grown and by the looks of the placenta it only recently died (that morming, the night before or the evening before). Also the uterus looked normal so she will be able to have babies in the future. But the most important thing is that she will recover from this operation and will get better soon.

20-05-2010: Puppydiary has been updated (see females-whisper-offspring).

11-05-2010: Last weekend we were at the VDH Europasieger show and National show of Dortmund (DE). The Europasieger show is one of the main dogshows of Germany. There were a nice number of minpins entered from several countries. It was nice to see so many different types. This weekend turned out to be very successful for us; Bjorn was shown in veteran class for the first time and won 2 x Vet-CAC with very nice critics from both judges. On the 2nd day he even managed to end up with the best 3 minpins for choosing Best of Breed. Viva impressed many by winning the juniorclass on both days and now has 2 x Junior-CAC's. And she won the title of "VDH Europa Jugend Sieger 2010". On the 2nd day she too managed to end up with the best 3 minpins of the breed! We also did an eye-examination with Viva and the result was "free".

30-04-2010: Last week an ultrasound showed us that Whisper is pregnant :o). From now on a weekly update will appear in a puppydiary, see "females-whisper-offspring".
