I am extremely grateful to Whelpwise (Perinatal Veterinary Specialties,, a canine pregnancy support group.  Without them, I am convinced – and so are my vets – that Hesed would have lost this litter like she did the litter a year ago.  Many of you know that I have tried for 25 years to incorporate the bloodlines from behind the Iron Curtain into my line because the ones who survived those terrible living conditions usually had very strong immune systems, and I am always trying to improve the health in my line.  This was my third, and last attempt.  I am beyond grateful to have a chance to keep a female from this litter.

 When the pups finally hit the ground and were healthy, I mentioned in an email that I had been afraid to jinx things by working on possible names.  Several friends sent some great names, including Pat, who sent “Varoom!!”  I really liked that name and it DOES fit my girl!
