I got a call from our breeder, Highland Labs, the one responsible for both Trooper and Chrisi. I'd called a few months ago inquiring about any upcoming litters. I was told that they would be doing some breeding in the new year and was promised a call when they were ready. Sunday I got the call. One of their bitches had come into season and is going to be bred some time in the next 10 days and was I still interested?
I thought it for about a half second. Well hell yes. I'm ready. I should know sometime in the next two weeks whether it took or not and if I'm going to be a new daddy. The breeder is in California so if all goes well I'll be making the trek in July or so.
I'm now on the list for first choice black male (it'll be a mixed color litter).
I think Trooper would be happy for me. I already have a name picked out.
Wish me luck.
