I lost Raine in Feb. Completely devastated still. I waited over 6 months before bringing her home after losing Cami. After bringing her home I told anyone who would listen that 6 months was too long and we should have done it sooner (although it wouldn't have been her so I guess it was perfect timing). At any rate I started looking for another pup a couple of months ago. I think Raine and Cami too have been sending me signs and specifically sent me to a specific breeder. So I find a breeder that does all the necessary testing. Will be breeding her female, a GCH stunning flashy brindle. I start looking at her pedigree. She has a grandfather with "Ferrari" in the name. That doesn't mean much to most people but it does to us. My hubby is a Ferrari mechanic. There are not many of them in the grand scheme of things and this dog is from California and ended up in Ohio where we are. If that were the only thing I would think coincidence. There is more! Breeder ends up breeding to a male from Nebraska. That isn't just around the corner from Ohio! I get this guys pedigree....Cami and Raine both had the same great grandfather on their fathers side. A LOM sire from Ohio. I always loved that they were related. It meant nothing but just made me feel better. The sires pedigree was impressive but a name caught my eye like I had seen it before and I started searching further....The father of the pups ALSO has the same name in his lineage...3 times grandfather but he is there!! Now another coincidence. These new pups will also be related to my girls!! OMG!! Still with me? It gets better....if you are a number and signs person....like me. Cami was born 3/25 Raine was born 7/1 Mom of the pups date of birth is 3/1. The month of birth of Cami and the day of birth of Raine. Pups were due on 6/23. They went in for a c-section a day late on the 24th. Take their day of birth of 24 add 1 for Raine you get 25 which is for Cami. I didn't make this up. I think they are signs?? I saw pictures of the pups. I don't see any fawns. Both my girls were flashy fawns. I see a whole lot of brindle's. I am heartbroken. I KNOW the most important thing is health and temperament. I still had my heart set on a flashy fawn girl. A couple days go by then I am told there is ONE SINGLE FAWN GIRL. So there you have it. They are 5 days old today. Of course it is far too early to decide where the pups will go. We are not a show home and those get snatched up first after the breeder makes her female pick. So we wait.
