She is in season...it is her optimal time as of Wednesday to get preggers..she has been with her beau on 3 different occasions since that day and YES that was JUST yesterday! Plus she is currently engaging in a sleep-over at his place...she's kind of "crazy" like that! BUT...easy she is not...the breeders called tonight to let me know she played last night and this morning with her beau Mint...but absolutley no "love connection"! We were told that they both really play well together and seem to like each other a lot! So what's the problem you ask? Well, this I would like to know!! Our sweet, sweet, obliging breeder called their vet...the vet told them that once in about a million there will be a female who for some reason doesn't want to be dominated or give over authority to the male...and that this could be the case with our Maggie...she is certainly an alpha female...but REALLY the girl has to want to get with her beau...RIGHT? Their vet suggested artificial insemination...can you believe it!! I've often told my husband...You hide and watch...Maggie will either be too frigid or not like males...then we will have to have her insemenated....only to have her get pregnant with one pup...possibly to be delivered by C-section...b/c you see...this little beauty IS NOT cheap!
Anyhoo...I called my vet...we picked up some Doggy Valium of sorts (in which I asked for a few days prior, but was informed not to "go there"...yet). We are to give her one pill an hour prior to romping with her boy to help relax her. Now I have to drive 1 1/2 hours or so away to drop off the goods (which I am more than willing to do...but geez Dr. Vet couldn't you have listened to me last week?)...only to have to play the waiting game and see if... A) the stuff worked and she's preggers...or not...and...B) if it didn't work...will it work tomorrow???...or the next day??? She has about 3 more chances I would say to get this done...and then if not we will probably pick her up late Saturday or early Sunday to bring her home...A VIRGIN once again! Maybe Maggie isn't meant to be a mom...but I am bound and determined...I've already started shopping for vets that do the artifical thang!
Oh!! and the vet did say...if she had one liter by insemenation...she would most certainly WANT to breed naturally the next time...I'm thinking..."ARE YOU KIDDING ME?"...sometimes they have up to 8 or so pups...I quit wanting more after 2..kids that is!! Just sayin~
Wish us luck...and I'll try to stop obsessing!! Any prayers, good wishes, sexy thoughts or ideas are very welcomed!!
