I have been remiss not to announce the addition of Pickle to the group at Sterling Danes. Marni Kueber, who is the breeder of Callie's father, took a stud fee pick of litter puppy 3 1/2 years ago. A pretty black girl, Darkhorse Pickle of a Dilly v. Sterling aka "Beckett" went to live with Marni. When Marni heard that I had failed at achieving a pregnancy for Callie, she offered me a puppy out of Beckett. This was an amazing and generous offer so I accepted. Pickle was born on Dec. 21 and came to live with me 2 weeks ago. Welcome Pickle!!!!!!! (Darkhorse Sterlng Pickled Pink)

I am devastated and shocked to report that Lark is not pregnant. I was so sure we would get it right this time. I did an ultrasound on Friday and there were no puppies seen. I am sick to my stomach about this for me, and, for all the wonderful folks who were hoping for a puppy. I am not going to give up and will try again next time. But I cannot ask anyone to wait any longer. Teresa Labrie of wysiwyg Great Danes has one, and maybe 2, who have been bred. I suggest that anyone who wants a puppy this spring/summer go to her website and fill out an application and get on her list. Her website is www.wysiwyggreatdanes.com One litter, I believe, is an all black litter. The other one will be all blue. I do not know of any other northeast puppies from reputable breeders. If I hear of any, I will put a notice up on this blog. I am so sorry. I will trudge on and will try again on the next cycles of both girls. I will definitely try a natural breeding next time. Not quite sure of my plans yet. CALLIE should be in heat in May and I will formulate a plane before then.
