That's great, Thomas. From the little bit of involvement I've had in dog shows and training, I know how much work that involves. It's car shows on steroids.

Thomas.... Question.....

We are awaiting a litter of mini-schnauzers to possibly get a puppy from.
What does "her temperature started to drop today" mean in the e-mail below? Is she gonna have her puppies ???

Hi Liz,

Her temp started to drop today, so Iíd say tonight through tomorrow sometime, she ate all her lunch, but you can tell sheís getting Close😊 And Ok, I marked that on my list and will definitely let you know. I usually try to post a litter photo of them all in a heap, we arentí supposed to take individual pics much before the 2 week period when the eyes open so usually I take a group photo at first. It does take me a few days to get to everyone on the list to confirm, I donít like to tell someone I have a puppy for certain till Iíve heard from those ahead of them, just so I can tell you where you stand, but feel free to email at ANY time and I can at least tell you the male/female count if I havenít gotten to email you yet.

OP, congratulations to your wife & pup!

My wife is just starting to get into scent work with one of our dogs, Keira, who had a spinal cord stroke a while ago & can no longer do the jumps required to go any further in AKC Obedience. (she has a CD now, & 2 legs towards CDX) So far, she seems to enjoy the scent work.

Another of our dogs, Max (UD), is retired from obedience due to a heart problem, so my wife is thinking scent work might be a good activity for him as well.

Out of curiosity, how long did your wife train with scent work before entering a trial?

Dawn worked with Rita about 6-8 months before the first show. Sheís working parallel paths on all this. The first is the NACSW (National Association of Canine Scent Work) and the AKC Scent Work path. The AKC is new to all this and we were told Rita was the first Dal to ever earn an AKC Scent Work title.

And itís expensive. Just this past weekend we had $300.00 in entry fees for one dog and that didnít include travel, food, hotel, etc.

On the NACSW side sheís gotten her ORT and weíre looking for a show so she can get her NW1.

We also had a UD dog and a couple CDX titles on our dogs. Back then UD was the highest title you could get other than an OTCH. Theyíve since added UDX and a now Rally is a big thing.

Thereís no end to all this shit.

So, I'm guessing you were out of town when your wife got pregnant with, and delivered, your children?

My daughter may be in her OB/GYN rotation as we speak, but, I'm far from an expert in dog birthing. "her temp is going down"???
I'm supposed to know the significance of that?
Anyway, she had the pups last night !!! 4 male and two female.
We get 1st pick of the females.
The females are all black, just like this one from her last litter.
