My husband and boys stayed home with Duchess while the girls and I traveled to Ohio. It was a great trip, but even better news was waiting for us on our arrival home! The boys had all been keeping it a secret because they new we were going to be SO excited!

We have all been waiting for our beautiful red miniature Australian Labradoodle Duchess to have a cycle, which means she would be ready for breeding.  Generally this happens as early as six months or as late as two years of age. Duchess is now sixteen months old and has finally cycled, which means she is able to have puppies!!! Yeah!!!
