1st March 2017 Lockthorn Zoe was mated to FTCH Gosberry Governor on the 25th of December 2016 – see anouncement F- litter 2017. Nine weeks later:… Yes, of course! We know that the stork doesn't bring pups... ...but up to now we didn't know that "...only pups will arrive at high tide - if you live in a coastal region" (I. Hansen, Hundebuch für Hundezucht) In fact we don't live at the coast but close enough to have seagulls around us. On Monday 27th of February the highest level of the tide was at 4.27 a.m. - and Zoe has whelped between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. - with the tide! Another extraordinary fact: The 27th is Zoe's birthday and as a present she got: 6 pups (5 dogs and 1 bitch). And another novelty: The first two yellow pups for the Lockthorn breeding!
