As I wrote earlier last week we took our first progesteronetest on Segra on Tuesday, day 11 of her heat. Her level was then 7 nmol/l and we waited two days until Thursday for our second test, day 13 in her heat. Her level was then up to 25 nmol/l so she got dewormed and we planned the last for our trip. In the evening me, my daughter Ellen and Segra started our drive towards Norway and Khan. We stayed the night on the Swedish side of the border in Töckfors before continuing to Geilo in Norway on Friday morning. 
In the early afternoon we arrived in our cottage and Segra and Khan got to meet eachother. And they hit if off playing and flirting. During Friday they had three good mating "atempts", but no hanging. So we went to bed hoping for a complete mating the next morning, and we got it! 
Within minutes after them being together in the morning we had a proper mating and they were stuck together for about 12-14 minutes, this was on day 15 of her heat.
Concidering Segra progesteronelevel I decided to be saticfied with this one mating and head back home, since waiting for a second mating the next day would most likely be to late in the heat. 
So now we are back home, and Segra is back with her family and all we do now is wait. After about three weeks we will do an ultrasound to check if she has any puppies growing in her belly. So until then all we can do is wait and cross our fingers!
Below are some mixed photos from our trip to Norway, enjoy!

Today we took the first progesteronetest on Segra, day 11. She had 7 nmol/l, pretty much what I expected. So we will wait two days and take another test on Thursday on day 13 of the heat, and see what level she has reach up to then. Updates will come!

On the evening of the 23rd, the night before Christmas Segra started her heat! We expected her to come into heat in February so she took us a bit by surprise. But despite this we still decide to go ahead with our plans and if all goes well we will have puppies at the end of March, ready to move to their new families by the end of May. 
In the beginning of next week I will make a first progesteronetest to see how her levels are so we can plan for our trip to Khan in Norway. We have a long drive ahead of us so it all needs some planning to work out! Keep your fingers crossed for us and I promise to keep you posted on our progress!
Below are some photos of Segra taken earlier today when the sun came out for a short while!
