Not a baby daddy...

"Well, Taz is still a virgin," Scott said, laughing, much to my disappointment.

Rats! We came so close to that not being so. A couple of weeks earlier, Jenny had contacted me about possibly breeding Taz to their young Megan bitch. Megan is a bright Alta-Pete prospect; she's a half-sister to Maid and a niece to Pleat, and doing quite well in training. Scott thought she and Taz would be a good cross and wondered if I was interested. After we discussed some of the health considerations, you bet I was interested! I have just started to consider getting another puppy, and the timing seemed perfect—and there's nothing I'd like more than a Taz pup! And from an Alta-Pete bitch to boot! Jenny cautioned me not to get too excited—lots of things could happen to prevent it from taking place, not least of which was Scott possibly changing his mind...

Welllll, it turned out Scott was all for it, but Taz had other ideas...

Apparently, Taz needed a girl with experience. He liked to flirt with Megan, and he tried to do the deed, but Jenny said, "Megan was not the nicest girlfriend and whenever she snapped at Taz his feelings were hurt and he wouldn't try again. We held her for him but he was too polite and wouldn't mount her. Megan is just one of those bitches that (at least on her first time) needed a male who wouldn't take no for an answer." And in the end, she tied with another dog.

I guess I'm not that surprised. Taz is very much a gentleman, and I can believe he wouldn't force himself on another girl (that would be so rude). So there will be no Taz babies after all.

Ah well. It was fun to think about for a while :)

She needs a dog like Helsleys Cap! Funny story,I had drivin 10 hours straight to take Lex up to Don and Jeanies to breed my Lex to their Cap, I had looked forard to a few mineuts to socialize and stretch my legs, but Cap had other ideas. I hadnt no sooner gotten out of the truck, and took lex out of her crate to let her potty, and Cap came around the truck,and immediatly mounted her and he wasnt gonna stop for nothing. Don just looked at me standing there still holding her leash and looking a little shocked, and said " Cap doesnt believe in foreplay" LOL!

Aw bummer! I ran into the same problem trying to breed Zac to Gael and ended up doing an AI. Once we'd done the AI, he seemed to figure it out but Gael decided she wasn't having any of that business!

Poor Taz :( Com'on, they'll be more where that camer from - or at least that's what they say when you have a broken heart :)

Thanks guys. I'd love a Taz puppy, but I guess it's not meant to be. On the positive side, I think it's safe to say that Scott likes Taz :)

No Taz puppies? Ah man! Taz would have the cutest puppies ever! I'm glad he was a gentleman. There are more fish in the sea, Taz. You just wait for a nicer fish to come along. :)

Sorry it didn't work out. Taz puppies would be fun. I'm glad that Taz is having such a great experience with his training, though.

Regards,

Awesome that Taz has Scott's approval!
