Hi

I have multiple litters from multiple breeds over multiple days ... I'm lucky to get 1 breeding bitch out of the lot. Over a week.

How is everyone else going?

Not well. In all my kennels the pups have been mediocre at best.

Mine are hit and miss. It's a case of one good pup for a few litters worth of FH only pups.

It's been a bit all over the place for me - some great, some good, some terrible. I have noticed a lack of 'leap' puppies though - which is curious.

Have just been told of a leap puppy ...

I'd be happy if mine jumped a little.

Just about to go through about 8 litters and FH the lot.

Perhaps if we sacrificed a judge to the puppy gods?

I've had two leap puppies over the last month. Both in breeds that I've not been actively trying to improve. The breeds I've been working on for ages refuse to get better.

Just had a horrible litter, unexpectedly bad.

Terrible SS on all of them, but still were pretty bad even if you take that into consideration.

It was an outcross in a new breed, though.

Most of the Maltese players are getting 'leap pups' some up from the mid 87%'s with a singular pup between 88.50-88.70!I haven't had anything over 88.40,yet.
As far as all my breeds,sadly,nothing of note.

Getting terrible SS in some breeds for no good reason.But in one breed am getting fabulous leap pups, in another I'm getting good bitches and very disappointing males.
I just have to breed loads of litters to get a few to show and then along comes a litter with 4 stars in it, so hard to decide which to keep.

Keeps us on our toes, lol. If it was too predictable it would be boring

Just had 5 litters drop, 80% had SOP 18 and under... makes no sense since pedigree doesn't show up with anyone under 20.

Just had another dud litter, all very poor SOP considering the quality of parents and the SS is terrible, 14 dogs on the pedigree, only two with less than 20...a 19.8 and 19.6, but pups had 16/17 SS. Something has changed surely? it used to be only one runt mostly.
