Pregnancy confirmed

Today we were at the vet to do an ultrasound in hopes of confirming pregnancy in our bitch Alice for Laelaps Marpet Bull.

We are delighted to announce that we have indeed seen several embryo’s growing inside of her!

For those of you who would like to try and guess the number of puppies we’ll be expecting, feel free to count them in the video below.

Yearly UPC testing

We are very happy to say that Daedalus (6 years), Allegra (10 years) and Joyous Ranja (12 years) have once again passed their yearly UPC tests.

We think it’s safe to say the oldest two do not need re-testing any more.¬†

We are looking for a new ‘forever’¬†family for Galahad of Laelaps, born 22nd of May 2018, due to a mismatch with his previous owners. He is a good boy, but will challenge you a lot. Therefore we are looking for an experienced person with a lot of time, without small children. Galahad has been taking part in a heart study by Dr. H. Van Meeuwen, which means he has been dopplered at 6, 9 and 12 weeks and at ~6 months old. We prefer that he continues to be part of the study, which means he would also be tested at 1 and 1,5 years old. He is also BAER tested and fully vaccinated.

Sad news

Yesterday we received some very sad news;
Eurydice of Laelaps, a.k.a. “Dewi”, had to be put to sleep due to a heart defect.
We are struck with sadness and extend our deepest sympathies to the owners.

We always try to do everything in our power to prevent such sickness by testing the breeding animals via Doppler. After Dewi showed signs of her illness, she was immediately tested by a specialist; Dr. H. van Meeuwen.

Dr. Van Meeuwen is currently running a study of heart defects in bullterriers that aims to develop a DNA test to determine hereditary heart defects in bullterriers. It is our hope that she will be able to use the materials she got from the examination to further her research. Because, for us, it would be the only solace we can get out of Dewi’s early demise.

Sweet dreams lovely girl.
