Just a quick question and then I'll leave this alone, why not wait to breed them until the health testing was done? Since she came in early, why not skip this heat and wait until the next?

Sara, Dekka's already said a few times that this breeding wasn't planned in the timing, she hoped to breed them but planned on waiting until they were tested - it was, in that sense, an "oops" litter.

Yes that's because she came in early per her original posts about breeding this litter.

I took the "oops" to mean it happened on accident, not that it was planned for the future but the plans changed when Seren came into heat, but that Dekka planned on breeding her during the next heat and she accidentally got pregnant.

Hmmm, I guess I interpreted that differently. Hopefully Dekka will come on to clear it up.

That was the plan, Sara, to wait for the last of the testing to be done, but sometimes clever, determined little dogs have their own plans.

Dekka and I are discussing it (or at least trying to find an optimal time to discuss it that works for us both)

While I do have plans to go smaller in breed choice for our next addition, I have major concerns about a JRT. I fear our house might not be able to provide enough exercise and stimulus for Quest. Orson's main requirement is (and has always been) being near us, LOL I am not overly educated on JRTs, and I haven't run a new addition past the family yet.

Plus, we just lost Phoebe in March and that was a HUGE bomb for the kids.........especially since 2 of them are young enough to NOT remember life without Phoebe. I'm sure Dekka has about 2.5 bajillion things to share with and ask of me as well, NO PRESSURE PLEASE GUYS.......

Coop...I think for most family with kids where they are at school all day, shuffling off to ballet soccer karate, both parents work, etc...a JRT isn't a good pet-dog-choice.

But, if you can toss toys around the house, train for 15 minutes a day, and run around the backyard with the dog for an hour a few times a week, he'll be fine, as long as he's getting attention and stimulus throughout the dog. Interactive toys, playing with another dog, going for a ride to the bank, even just kicking a toy around while you cook or teaching the dog to hold his place "out of the kitchen" is good stimulus.

Honestly I don't think a JRT puppy is much more high energy than a young doberman.

And honestly, I wouldn't get another young doberman! LOL I didn't plan to get Orson, he just needed us. Now I'm almost 7 years older (and so are the kids) and 7 years slower, LOL

I appreciate your post though. I've always heard JRTs are very energetic and hard to keep up with. IDK, best to wait and speak with Keri
