Decisions ... decisions
So I noticed today that Misty is in heat... about a month and a half before I was expecting it... the little imp.
So here is my dilemma - if I bred her in theory she would whelp out about one week after I planned to move to the winter house. I've never known anyone to whelp out a dog so shortly after moving but I do have a few concerns with what moving would do to her stress levels. New place - new yard - new puppies just strike me as a horrible mix.
Of course I do have some options - I could move early... like the last week of August OR... I could abort the whole plan which I'm not overly thrilled with either. I really wanted a puppy out of this pairing and more time means more time for things to fall apart on the pairing which I've already negotiated. FML....
Oh men plan and puppy dogs laugh. What would you do?
