Crazy weekend!

Well, Trip’s breeding has come and gone. It came up so suddenly, I didn’t get a chance to put up a post when we were heading out. I was sure I was going to be flying in Sunday, for breeding on Sunday and Tuesday, but when Trip’s progesterone was higher then I expected on Thursday, we made the decision to go for Saturday/Monday breedings instead. I think it was a good decision, but didn’t leave me with a ton of time to plan. ๐Ÿ™‚

The coolest thing about the way it ended up happening, is the time I was able to spend with Dillon. I picked him up from Kentucky, and then drove him and Trip down to Tennessee, where we were breeding them. I don’t think many dam owners get the opportunity to spend a lot of time with the stud dog, unless he’s theirs or a friend’s. I really love Dillon’s personality, temperment, and drive. He’s fun-loving, and sweet, two things which Trip really is not–she’s more serious, and while she’s sweet to me, she’s always been a more typical sheltie and not one to just sit in your lap. I’m really excited about what the two of them will produce.

All appendages are crossed–ultrasound in 3 weeks. If Trip is pregnant, she would be due the beginning of November.

Here’s a pic of Trip and Dillon. ๐Ÿ™‚
