    Hopefully she took as the breeder promised she would only take 2 litters out of her ;)
    Her first litter was a perfect..text book birthing. She broke water and within 2 hours had all 7 of her pups. I expect this litter to be just as easy ;) if not then we are prepared for any thing that could happen. I have been assisting in whelping litters for over 10 years and the breeder who still legally owns Tori has been breeding for over 20 years. So, there is nothing that could be thrown at us that we couldn't handle.
    I'm just crossing my fingers that she took so I can then get her spayed. From her last litter a few of her pups got their championship titles in Canada and US before they were 2 years of age. One of her pups is being used as model for a calendar for Eukanuba...and the same little girl may be invited to the show of shows this year in Canada...that is basically the same as the Westminister dog show except a Canadian version. One of her relative won the westminister dog show a couple of years ago...Josh. Another one of her pups is going to Bermuda this week to get her championship title there. The breeder likes to get championship titles in 3 countries on all her dogs. She also had top Newf in Canada a few years back.

    I have pictures of her last litter. I'll post them in the picture section...I don't quite know how to put them in my post. And, my computer is so slow it takes forever to get to those sites to make the pic smaller. :)

    Gallien Jacks, no I won't keep a puppy. But, the breeder will keep one. She is basically just living with me right now. Once she is spayed the breeder will sign her over to me. So, basically I have no rights to the puppys at all. ;)

    I posted pictures of her last litter in the members gallery. :) She is such a good mommy. I wanted to whelp the litter at home here, but, with all my other dogs she may get a little too upset and testy with the others dogs. I don't want her to have any aniexty attacks...although the last litter she had we kept my old girl Cassie with her (midwife haha :) ). She found comfort in having Cassie there. With Athena my Rottie, the last litter she met (the pups were 3 weeks old) freaked her out so bad I think it took her a while to recover. The pups had her backed up against a wall while she was trying to climb it to get away from them. I guess she must be happy I had her spayed...hee hee.

    This question threw me :) especially after I outlined the breeders experience, knowledge and the respect she has in the dog world....it's almost a question directed to a novice first time dog breeders. ;)
    Tori was 2 1/2 years old when she had her first and only litter. This will be her 2nd and she is now 4 1/2 years old. The breeder usually only takes 2 litters out of a bitch.

    Not a problem. I understand your concern especially with a large sized dog and slow maturity. I forgot that you used to breed so this would be a concern of yours

    It's also reassuring to know that Tori and all of my friends dogs are certified for hips, elbows, eyes and every other known genetic disorder known to Newf's. ...her scores came back excellent, any thing less and my friend won't breed. She works at a Vet clinic so she gets every thing done at cost. The breeder has all the pup's eyes checked in PEI Vet college before they leave for their new homes at 9 weeks of age. Before they leave for their homes they are socialized safely after their inoculations, my friend takes them to work with her at the vet clinic or she gives them all to my sister to take to work at her grooming shop to run and play. My friend has grandchildren who come to play with them etc. etc. My friend really enjoys bringing up puppies and showing is her passion and hobby.

    As I am typing she is on her way down (with my sister ) to Bermuda...she is showing one of her girls down there at some major dog show. I'm stuck looking after everyone's dogs. Poor me. haha

    It seems to me that you are getting a bit of the shaft. Does the breeder contribute to the feeding of Tori and the medical expenses? If so, then perhaps you aren't getting shafted too badly. But if you have to raise the pups and spend your life tending to them, then by golly you should at least get either a pup, or the price of a pup. I have never heard of a breeder taking two entire litters from a bitch they placed. Usually they will want 1st and 3rd litter pick from a litter that is bred to a stud of their choosing.

    Do you even co-own Tori? It really sounds to me like she is taking big time advantage of you! I surely hope not.................
