Yes, Jack and Sparkle have the same sire, so your pup will be Jack's niece or nephew Linda and Mike and wonderful, you made a great choice. And like I said, the pups are gorgeous!!! I think they were trying to get some new photos to you guys soon

I really appreciate your input! I will also start a thread asking...
I've never bred dogs, but I'm surprised they took her completely away from the pups. I've heard of mamas being wrapped with cloth so they can't nurse, but staying with their babies. There is so much that mama dogs teach their puppies during the first 8-10 weeks of life. I'm sure they are working very hard to keep them well fed and happy, but it would be worth asking what the puppies are missing out on developmentally and how you can help your pup when it comes home.

If she is recovering from a significant surgery then there is no other choice. IMO the dam's life is exponentially more important right now since she is the one at risk following surgery.

Hi Michelle,
Thank you for your encouraging words about our choice. It is comforting. We did actually get some pictures this morning so that was awesome. So Jack is from Summit, is that right? And if i am correct there is a litter from Summit out of Ridgeview that was born a day before our litter. Is that the same Sire as Jack? This is all pretty interesting to me. A whole new world for us but one I am really enjoying learning about!

Jack is sired by Summit (GCH Quailwood Mountain Odessey) and he is Sparkle's sire as well. I had the pleasure of spending the weekend with Summit at the Palm Springs show this weekend. Smoochie and I stayed with his owner, Jody, in her motorhome for the weekend. The Ridgeview litter is sired by Sonny (GCH Summits Sonny Side Up) who is unrelated - except distantly - to Summit. The kennel name for Sonny is Summit....which is probably where the confusion lies

PeggyDL- Yay!! You are getting so close! This is so exciting! And it's great that you and Michelle have this in common, I know Michelle had been a great help to me, so thanks Michelle for all your help and I'm glad that Peggy is getting valuable info from you as well! I forgot, when's your gotcha day? The end of this month right?? I cannot wait to see pictures!! And thanks for your words of encouragement. I think the initial concern wore off and I realized that everything will be just fine. I'm so excited to see the pups soon...less than 2 weeks! They are getting so big and I love watching them grow through the pics I get from the breeder. Did you pick out a name yet for your dog?

Outwest, I think I'd have to agree with Michelle. The mom had two surgeries and although the breeder didn't explicitly state it, I think the mom was having a hard time recovering while she was with the puppies, she was just getting worse. And she had drainage tubes coming out of her abdomen so she wasn't able to do much. I think in this case, the life of the mother and her well being were taken into consideration first knowing that the puppies will be just fine as they are being well socialized to all people and I'm sure to the breeders other dogs, once they are old enough. I initially shared your same concerns but then I knew I needed to let those concerns go as I have a wonderfully knowledgeable breeder and I'm sure she's doing anything she can to make sure they will be well adjusted. I do appreciate your concern and opinion though as I shared it at first as well, and it's important questions to research.

I also think it makes sense to point out that this isn't a newbie breeder SMBC is dealing with. They have a lot of experience and are well respected. I would trust their judgment on this.

Hey SMBC,
I am glad you are feeling better about your whole situation. I know it must be hard on you. You are so lucky to be able to see the litter so soon! We got some pics from the breeder yesterday. I need to post some later on. We will pick her up the weekend of 1/25/13. Not sure if we are going all the way to the breeder or there might be a slight chance that we meet half way. We are pretty flexible so whatever works out for everyone. Still no name! With 5 of us it is practically impossible to get us all to agree on one. Some ideas are Lacie, Laney, Kaya, and my personal favorite (which I am alone on) is Holly. I'd like a cute sweet girl name. Many of our favorites are name of dogs of close friends or neighborhood dogs already, Roxy, Bailey, Lucy, Zoe. So we will see....
Looking forward to your updates!
Take Good Care,
PeggyDL

Yay! I cannot wait to see pictures!! Hopefully I don't miss the post...I haven't been checking the forum as much since I'm on vacation. January 25th is so soon! I'm extremely jealous! Are you getting really excited, nervous or how are you feeling about it all? Did you buy a lot of stuff yet? I'm so excited for you, and plan on living through you for a couple of weeks! I think we pick up Champ like 2-3 weeks after you get your little girl, so not too long. I really love all the names that you picked out! I can imagine how hard it is to decide since they are all so cute. Does the litter have a theme? Have you thought of the registration name yet?

And thanks for your kind words. I'm totally fine with it, just slightly concerned at first, not so much for socialization purposes but more so nutritional and health related issues. I also feel extremely bad for the breeder and cannot express how appreciative we are to her and her partner for all of their hard work. But, I'm hoping some coffee and chocolate macadamia nuts from Hawaii will begin to express it
