The Eagle Has Landed

Amore's semen arrived via FedEx at 10 am Thursday morning and was deposited into Sparkle at 3 pm. What a marvelous technology - using an endoscope the vet, Altina Wickstrom, was able to locate the cervix and then a small tube is inserted into the womb and the sperm is deposited right smack into the womb (rather than have to swim). I did not take any pictures, but if you go to youtube there is actual video of this technique used on a French Bulldog.

If those swimmers meet the eggs and have a party then we can expect puppies no sooner than May 27th.
