We took Skully over the Pennines to be mated to a very nice ruby boy this morning.  Although there were only a few flakes of snow in Batley, it was covering the fields and hills of the Pennines, but we arrived safely – and on time!  The mating took in total almost 2 hours, with a tie lasting 1 hour 35 minutes.  Don’t they make a handsome couple.  I always work on a cavalier pregnancy of 8 weeks and 5 days, so that makes it 11th May for puppies.  Paws x
