Well at long last my orange roan has come into season. The last true season she has was over a year ago, we had a small show back in May 2012, but since then there’s been nothing really. A breeder had said that she might have a silent season which is when they don’t show any blood but are still in season. Of course that makes it really difficult to know when they are ready to meet a dog as it normally happens between the 11th and 14th day, with day one counted as the first day you see blood.
But I can safely say this time it’s definitely happening. She started on Sunday 20th April and so is due to meet her boyfriend on Wed 1st or Thurs 2nd May. We have chosen Quintavia Cockers’ stud dog Sid as her boyfriend http://www.quintaviacockerspaniels.co.uk/our_dogs/star_stopper.htm
Quintavia’s website says: Quintavia Star Stopper has a very sweet gentle nature. He is a handsome dog with a lovely masculine head, good strong neck, good legs and feet, short big ribbed body and excellent rear quarters. He has proven himself in the show ring with some lovely wins including several Best Puppy in Breed awards, Best Of Breed awards and Reserve Best in Show awards. Sid qualified for Crufts aged 7 months and was placed in his class at Crufts 2008, Sid was 2nd in his class at Crufts 2009.
Sid is PRA and F.N clear which means none of his puppies will develop either disease. Sid continues his winning ways and he had a great day at the Cocker Spaniel Club Championship show in July 2008 where he was placed 2nd in Limit dog behind the eventual CC winner and in August he was placed 1st in Limit dog at National Gundog. Sid now has his stud book number and is qualified for Crufts for life.
Sid is a confident, proven sire of quality Cocker Spaniels. Sid has sired Chocolate Roan, Orange Roan and Blue Roan Puppies of excellent type and temperament. Sid has a low hip score of 5:4
Fingers crossed all goes well this week – will let you know what happens!
