****UPDATE****From 11-28-07...Maggie and Mint met yesterday morning for some romping good times...however, no good times were had...BUT and this is big...she was very kind to her beau and they played pretty well together. IF you consider her marking her scent all over the place and him running from scent spot to scent spot... playing. According to Mints dad...she is doing ALL the right things...it just may be a day or so too early! UGGHHH!! I am so tired of missing days...SO...last night I took Maggie to Mints "love condo" (he has a fabulous pad...man...a real swanky place) and they will be having a much needed sleepover for the next few days!! Wish them luck! It was so sad to leave her...but I know it is the best thing for her...and she was able to get some play time in with her sisters children...some pups Lady (Maggie's sister) had five months ago...AND yes Mint is the father...maybe that's the problem...she thinks he's a two-timer. So that's the story of the day for me...now on to some much needed decorating***
For those of you that have been keeping up with the doggy drama of these two...
The Beautiful, Brave, Boyish...Mr. Mint...
and the "bit of a tease" but divinely beautiful... Miss Maggie
I am asking that each of you please think a positive little thought or send a sexy little wish to each of these beauties tomorrow. For we are crossing our fingers for a successful mating between our Maggie and her beau...Mint! You see Maggie is a little more anxious than most dogs...most females come into season 2 times a year...luckily OR unluckily for us Maggie comes into season 3 times a year...yes it was just this past mid July when she MISSED her window of opportunity with Mint because she was a bit too snobbish and persnickity about the whole process....So tomorrow being the 11th day of her 21 day cycle (the vet says between the 10th and 15th day is usually the optimum time to get er' done)...she will have a date with her man....the rendevous is to happen in the a.m. when his dad brings him over for a playdate in our neighbors back yard (long story, basically they have a smaller fenced in yard, so she can't bolt). This means I HAVE to be present for the de-flowering of my yellow beauty....now don't get me wrong...I'm all for the marriage and everything...I just didn't want to be invited to the honeymoon...that was suppose to be dad's job...but alas he's away again on business...so mom gets to hold down the fort so to speak while he's out making the big bucks$$$$. I am so nervous about something that is so natural...AND I was RAISED in the country...with all kinds of farm animals...but I never was present for the actual conception of any of those animals...so see...I'm just chicken!
So please wish us luck...so we can get this over with...if she doesn't mate today...she is going away with Mint and his family for a 2 to 3 day SLEEP OVER...yea...that should do the trick!!
Thanks for indulging me in my "getting doggie preggers dilema"!!
***I'm so nervous I don't know what to do...next...should I "wash my hair" and "shave my legs" for tomorrow...and of course do I need to lay out the dental floss, mouth wash and some kind of great smelling perfume for the occassion...not to mention finding the perfect outfit to wear...geez...this really has me in a tizzy of sorts...lucky dogs...all they have to do is show up...well...sometimes!!!****
