It normally isn’t a big surprise when you find out you’re expecting pups… UNLESS you had your vet conduct a relaxin blood pregnancy test and the results were NEGATIVE and that proves to be incorrect. I’m sure you can imagine just how disappointed we were learning that our efforts to breed Circle H’s Royal KC to such an outstanding stud (Snowy River’s Full Strut) had failed. We had conceded to the fact that we must have missed our chance and were preparing for a future breeding. As with all our dogs we keep a close eye on their overall health and we noticed that KC continued to show signs of pregnancy, so we asked our vet to x-ray her to confirm our suspicions. Below is the picture of that x-ray. We were floored (as was our vet) with the result showing at least 9 pups.
The only explanation is that we must have conducted the relaxin blood test too early. The blood test has a 95% accuracy rate, but clearly we fall within the 5%. My wife is going to buy Lottery tickets as I type this blog…
