Mira is in heat!

This year Mira has had only 5 months inbetween her heats. This is shorter than normal for her, and my first plan was so wait until her first heat next year. But now, she started her heat today and we realised that if we wait, our next chance for puppies might be in the middle of summer next year, and then we are normally very busy outdoors at our farm, so that is not the best timing. So, we will go ahead and mate her now on this heat, which should be around the first weekend in October. 
And if all goes well then that means that we will have puppies born in the middle of December 2018 and ready to move to their new homes in the middle of February 2019!
