We have since early this year, been contemplating about the “substitute”. Buddy turned 10 earlier this spring, and the saying is “anything over 10 is a bonus” when it comes to the life expectancy for bigger dogs, as been in our conscience quite a long time.
In combination with (just as As Covid showed us, or I’d dare to say we new this already) dogs doesn’t grow on trees and as we are not interested in a boot specimen (which many apparently were during Covid), we reached out to Buddy’s breeder for a pup. They were expecting to mate, for delivery this fall. But even if a successful rendez vous happened, no pups were created.
So, we looked around for other breeders and came across Helena at Billinge gård. And what do you know – they were having some on the way.
Now they are born (as you can see from the picture above). I have no clue which one she (!) is but Tesla is ready to be picked up in about 8 weeks!
What Buddy thinks? He will not know what struck him. Neither will we. But currently he takes the news peacfullly.
