Maddy's Diary for her breeding with Hudson

July 14, 2010
Dear Diary,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY my babies!!!!!!!!!!!
I went into pre-labor around 9pm.  Mom looked at me funny thinking I might be faking it.  Given my progesterone levels and when I should have ovulated, I shouldn't be due to whelp until Friday.  What do blood tests mean, anyway - really!  I was ready - let's go!!!  After a few hours, I went into full active labor.  I was able to deliver them all in exactly 2 hours.  I am SO HAPPY they are here and are all very active, healthy and hearty!!!  They are beautiful!!!!!!!

Thank you Auntie Gail for coming over in the middle of the night to help me!!!

Pictures of the puppies will now be on Maddy and Hudson's Litter page.  Week 1 will be created soon!

Dear Diary,

Well, one more week to go!  Having a much harder time moving around now.  I am not a complainer, but I can't help let out a sigh when I lie down these days.  I tend to "spread out" when my tummy comes in contact with anything.  So, I am much less vizsla-like and spread out on my side to rest with my legs out - no curling up in a ball for me!!! 

This will probably be my last post pre-baby, diary.  I am resting a lot and getting ready.  Mom has put the whelp box together and the family room is looking like a hospital ward.  I know the day is coming!  I am SO EXCITED!!!!!  I think I heard that the x-ray looked like six babies.  I can't wait until they are here!!!!

Ok, count the babies!  How many???

Dear Diary,

It has been a couple of weeks since I last wrote.  I am growing a lot these days.  I am feeling the babies move around now.  Mom says she can feel them and see them now - that is VERY exciting!  It makes it harder to rest, but that is ok.  I know that they are just going to be getting bigger and bigger these last two weeks, so this is only the beginning!

Now, I am slowing it down a bit.  Getting less and less agile.  Focusing on rest and relaxation.  Still VERY hot outside.  Supposed to be in the high 90's for a while.  Another reason to stay in the air conditioning and rest.


Last Saturday was awesome.  I caught a groundhog!!!  I am not sure what all the screaming was about from mom - it was SO COOL!  I had to eventually drop it, but I hunted it down, and I had a blast catching it!!!  I am not going hungry tonight (just kidding)!!!




Will write again soon -

Dear Diary,
I am about 5 weeks pregnant now and I am starting to grow!!!  It is SO HOT outside - over 90 degrees!!  UGH!

Dear Diary,
YIPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!  I am pregnant!!!!!!!!!!  I felt pregnant, but now I know for sure!  Mom took me to the vet today.  They turned me upside down in the padded "V" contraption so my belly was right side up.  Then, they squeezed this cold, blue, yucky stuff on my tummy.  But then, they used this magic wand on my tummy and I could see my babies on a monitor.  JOY, JOY, JOY, JOY!!!!!!!!  I am SO excited.  Now we just wait for me to grow and take care of the precious ones.  JOY, JOY, JOY - I am SO happy!!!!

Dear Diary,
Same old same.  Not much changing around here.  It is hot as blazes for early June!  Nothing really to report yet.  I would like to think I'm pregnant, but there is no way to tell yet.  I think mom is taking me for an Ultrasound in a week or so.  Then, we will know for sure.  Until then, I am getting my rest and hoping to see babies soon!!!

Dear Diary,
I am all settled in now.  Back to the same routine - ahhhh.  I really want to thank Henry and Richard for their wonderful hospitality.  It was so comfortable at their house.  THANK YOU for letting us stay with you.  We had so much fun!  Mom said she really enjoyed the dinners and getting to know you.  You guys are GREAT!!!!  Now, we just wait for a few weeks for ultrasound in hopes of seeing some Hudson babies!  The waiting is going to be hard, but we will get there!!!!

Dear Diary,
Woke up and we were on the move.  Lots of packing and getting the car ready.  I wonder, I really wonder - will I get to see Hudson one more time?  He isn't going to have a whole lot of swimmers left for me by now, BUT, one more time would be really nice for me!  A wonderful way to spend the next million hours in the car on the way home.  The car is all packed and I am put in my crate.  DARN, I thought I would get one last chance to see my man!!!  I start to get settled in for a long ride, and then I see mom coming at me with the rope lead.  YAY!!!!!!!  I DO get one more time with my man.  Off to "the room" I happily go!!!  My handsome man comes barreling down the stairs.  I am going to make the most of this now - I KNOW I am going right back into my crate in the car.  So, we play for a few minutes and have a final tie for 32 minutes.  I can't wait to have babies.  Ok body - please do your thing - I REALLY want to be a mommy.  I got to rest all the way home.

Dear Diary,
Had another relaxing night's sleep.  Today we got to go and visit Sharon and family in MA.  I got to see my Aunt Kailee, and even better yet, my daughter Katie.  I sure have missed Katie Kate.  Mom was overjoyed.  Katie gave us the best wiggle-butt welcome of all time!  We spent some time visiting and felt so overjoyed to see the family so happy.  The 3 V girls are all so happy together.  Sharon's son Jason and Katie are best buddies.  What a nice visit!!!  Ok, this is all well and good.  BUT, when am I going to get to see "the Marlboro Man?"  I am really ready.  Hudson, where are you???  We finally head back to his house.  I can't wait to get that rope lead around my neck and go down the magic stairs!!!  YUP, down we go!!!  Shortly after, I hear him - down the stairs, 4 at a time - there he is!!!  He REALLY likes me!!!  Really, REALLY likes me!!!  After a couple of minutes, we tie for 30 minutes.  WOW, I have a lot of swimmers in me now!!!  I heard that we might be leaving in the morning, I wonder if I will get one more time with Hudson?  Off to bed we go - headed home tomorrow!!!

Dear Diary,
Had a nice relaxing night's sleep.  Today started out going to visit family.  We got to see mom's brother and sister in law and nephews play baseball.  I got to walk around and see the sites.  A nice day!  Then we went back to Hudson's house.  After a while, I got to go back down to "the room!"  I KNOW what that means now, YES I DO!!!  I patiently await the sound of the freight train coming down the stairs!!!  Hudson, where are you???  Then, I hear it!  He is on his way!!!  We get to spend just a little more time together before we tie for 20 minutes.  Off I go to bed with mom.  A very nice way to end the day.  Ok eggs and sperm - do your thing!!!!


May 14, 2010
Dear Diary,
Off to CT we go!  Hudson, get ready - I am on my way!  The first few hours in the car were fine, but what is it with the Merritt Parkway?  Why are there so many people on that road? We sat still, stuck, not moving - and then would inch for close to 2 hours.  The good news is, that I got to eat dinner.  No need to stop anywhere - mom just got my bowl, my food, opened my crate door and, tada, dinner is served!!  We finally arrive in CT after 7 1/2 hours.

I didn't think that my day was going to get any better given the long drive.  But, alas!  I get out to stretch my legs and have a bathroom break - and then I am led downstairs into a very nice room at Henry and Richard's house.  Ok, nice and cool down here.  Nice carpet and Christmas decorations all around in boxes and such.  THEN, I hear a freight train coming down the stairs.  What could it be??  OMG, it is Hudson!  He really IS "the Marlboro Man!"  SO HANDSOME and ALL MAN!!  Woooo hooooooooo!!!!!!  I am SO ready to have babies with you, Hudson.  So, we get to know each other for a couple of minutes, and then we get down to business.  We tied for 20 minutes.  YAY!!  The process has started.  Off to bed I go with mom.


May 6 - May 13, 2010
Dear Diary,
Why is it that I have to go and get SO many blood tests?!  Just because I came in early doesn't mean that my rhythm is going to be early!!!  So, after being pricked 3 TIMES, mom finally says enough!  I am getting close, so time to think about heading north to see Henry, Richard, AND HUDSON!!!

Dear Diary,
I surprised everyone today by coming into season!  I think my mom thought it would be at LEAST another month.  Well, Mother Nature has her own ideas!  So much for Hunt Test season.  I guess I won't get to run in any more in Master's until the fall.  I have to stop at 2 legs for now.  That is a bummer, but I get to have babies - and I LOVE my babies!!!!
