ARTEMIS IS OFFICIALLY RETIRED
We currently have no breeding females. Alice is too young, will need to pass OFA certifications in February of next year, 2022.
Gamma litter has been cancelled and Artemis is now retired. After a failed breeding in the Spring, and an ear infection during her fall heat we feel she has told us that she would rather be a Grandma-dog than a new mom again. I have always felt that retiring females in there 6th year is best practice so we will do so.
She was a wonderful mom to two beautiful and healthy litters. In two litters she has a total of 17 pups, 8 from Alpha litter and 9 from Beta. Arty will remain with us as she is a loved member of our family and bears many titles, nana to our boys, the worlds best security to my husband, big momma to Alice and madam-barks-a-lot to our neighbors and my shadow to me.
Lady Alice Vom Sanctus will be our new breeding female once she has turned 2 (in January) and has passed her OFA hip/elbow certifications.
In case your curious Alice’s titles include; Littermate to the boys, the kids dog to my husband, little-one to Artemis, Take care of our dog from the neighbors (our neighbors are my parents, so they joke that Alice is theirs and we are simply “watching her”) and babypuppy to me.
