    will be bred to

    PJ's Kenset Back To The Future aka "Marty"
    DNA Fanconi probably clear, hips OFA good, eyes CERF'd

    Pictures, pedigrees, and further information can be found on my website Sherwood Basenjis


  • Congratulations on the good test results and good luck on the litter. They both look great and Marty has produced some amazing dogs (of course I'm kind of partial since Marty is also Piper's sire). I'm sure the puppies will be everything you're hoping for.


  • Is Piper from Marty and TC's litter?


  • Congrats and good luck with the pairing Robyn….shoudl be some nice pupes from these two. 🙂


  • No TC's litter was two years ago, Piper is out of Lady, who is TCs sister. So it's almost the same thing, and meeting TCs puppies was one of the reasons I chose to get a puppy from that litter.


  • Congratulations, Robyn! Can't wait to hear the news and see the pictures when the little ones are hear.

  • Bindi is finally in season. 🙂

    I will also be doing a co-breeding with Arlene (nomrbddgs) with Bindi's litter sister Sugar. It's funny that Bindi and Sugar came in season within 2 days of each other and they are thousands of miles apart. 😃


  • It should be a lovely group of puppies.


  • Bindi was a bit too early in her cycle for a breeding when I took her to the stud dog (at Kenset Basenjis) so I left her there for a week. Bindi approved of her intended beau and there were three successful breedings. Her due date from the first breeding is January 1. 😃

    I haven't chosen a theme for this litter yet. I already had a litter that was born on a January 1 and I used "New Years" as a theme for them so that's out. I'm open to suggestions. :p

    Congratulations! How about names based on Georgia themes: Sherwood's Gone With the Wind, Sherwood's Sweet Georgia Peach, Sherwood's Scarlett O'Hara, Sherwood's Rhett Butler, etc. I don't know what other names you could come with based on that theme. Maybe: Sherwood's UGA the Un-Bulldog. Sherwood's Sweet Magnolia. Sherwood's Rambling Wreck.

    I don't suppose you care to go with the vacuum cleaner idea…..Sherwood's Little Dust Buster, Sherwood's Dirt Devil, etc. 😃 😃 😃 😃 Guess not.

    I can imagine that it is hard to come up with ideas for litter names time after time.

    Can't wait to see the pups.

  • Yay congratulations Bindi!

    I was actually tossing around Georgia theme names a few days ago…. Something about pecan pie, peanuts, red clay, cotton, sweet tea (okay so most of those are generally "southern" not specifically "Georgia", but my ideas were already posted above.)

    Another idea I've always thought about... Georgia rivers. Oconee, Flint, Savannah, St. Mary's, Altimaha, Ocmulgee (spelling?)


  • Today is day 61 from the first breeding and Bindi is proving to be a very content pregnant mom. Her gait has become a bit awkward, her belly causing her to move cowhocked. She had clear mucus from her vulva yesterday and she has to pee and poop more frequently. Pregnancy is advancing normally except for two things. I have only felt a few faint movements. Granted she is a busy girl who won't hold still more than 30 seconds but usually movement is obvious at this stage. This could mean that this is a very small litter and the pups have plenty of room deep inside to kick or it is a large litter and there are so many pups stuffed together they can't move. Considering I have at least 10 families eagerly awaiting the birth of the pups I sincerely hope it is the latter. The other unusual thing is that Bindi has had very little appetite the past few days. Most girls become positively ravenous while pregnant so her lack of appetite concerns me a bit. I suspect she may go longer than her Jan 1 due date though. Here are some photos, taken today. I'm sorry they are a bit grainy. My camera appears to be at the end of its lifespan. 😞


  • Though Rally never had any loss of appetite, it is supposed to be one of the signs that whelping is near. TC was a picky eater as she got close to her due date eating only raw and snubbing any other food.


  • Maggii never quit eating up to and including breakfast the day she whelped (and she whelped starting at 11am…ggg), but Mickii and Fatia did....


  • The loss of appetite has been going on maybe 4-5 days. I changed the brand of food at that time and at first thought she just didn't like the new food. So I switched back to the old brand last night and she barely nibbled it. Today I gave her a spoon of yogurt and some cottage cheese, two things she normally loves, and she barely licked it. I'm not really worried but I will continue to keep a close eye on her.


  • Poor Bindi! She looks uncomfortable. I'm really excited to hear about the puppies coming. Hopefully for both you and Bindi, it will be soon, smooth, and uncomplicated.

  • WooooHooooo….more puppies!! Good luck Bindi!! Sending good thoughts and prayers your way.


  • mine frequently have 'gone off their feed' as time has gotten close.


  • @dmcarty:

    Yup… sometimes not enough room for food and pups...gggg.... My Maggii on the other hand always made room for food...:D


  • Hmm, Sugar was eating at about 10:00 am-didn't seem to bother her either.
