Failed Artificial Insemination
We're sad to report that we've had a failed artificial insemination between our Phoenix and Journey's sister Canyon in Alaska.
Canyon has had a litter before and Phoenix's abilities were proven with his recent sample that was analyzed and sent on the journey to Alaska. The wild card is the timing. The vet tech doing the AI indicated that she had a feeling that Canyon's test results weren't accurate based upon what her instincts were telling her. Well, turns out, she was right. Canyon would have been due last Sunday.
We'll all plan to try again during Canyon's next heat cycle which could be anytime between July and October. There will be "Phoenix" puppies yet!
