McALISTER'S A LITTLE MIRACLE
On my birthday November 29th 2005 McAlister's "Irish Cream" ("Sally") delivered her one and only puppy McAlister's "A Little Miracle" sired by DKCH McCairn "Let's Twist Again". We knew in advance that "Sally" was probably only carrying one or two puppies but didn't expect any birthcomplications. Unfortunately they arose during the delivery, so "Sally" had to be delivered by a C-section and due to many false pregnancy symptoms we decided to have "Sally" spaid at the same time, as it also turned out that "Sally" was too narrow in her pelvis ever to deliver puppies..
Fortunately her singleton puppybitch survived by means of intensive first aid. A LITTLE MIRACLE - indeed. For the same reason we have called "Sally's daughter "LIVA" from the day she was born, as it meens LIFE.
And "Liva" has turned out to be more than lively. A charming, spoiled, stubborn and great looking bitchpuppy - full of energy and tricks. "Sally" has been a SUPER mum to her singleton puppy, and she continues to enjoy her motherhood as "Liva" grows older. Fortunately my friend decided - from the day "Liva" was born -to keep "Sally's" daughter, and it's fantastic to see how much mother and daughter really enjoys each others company.
"Liva" has so far been shown a few times in Baby Class with only VERY PROMISING ribbons, but she is a little selfdetermined "lady" and still needs lots of ringtraining.
CAIRNS & HOBBY BREEDING
So in my hobbykennel all my cairns live with me in the house as equal members of the family and with free access to my sofa.
"Jennifer", "Smilla" and "Stephanie" have all retired by now from breeding and enjoy their senior lives fully with their new families, where they are totally spoiled and dearly beloved.
"Toddy" retired from breeding too, but spends her otium here with me. She still acts like a 4 year old and definitely regards herself as the QUEEN of HER house.
I breed 3- 4 litters a year and my puppies grow up in my bedroom and living room and have been in human contact since their birth. They settle in with their new families right away, trustful and confident of themselves with at least 8 weeks of correct puppy stimulation in their luggage.
I am determined to breed not only with focus on correct cairn anatomy according to our breedstandard but most important with focus on breeding to only mentally wellfunctioning studdogs and broodbitches - regardless their showresults and tittles.
I could never breed otherwise: I simply detest factory kennels, puppy farming, too heavy inbreeding and the devastating focusing mainly on tittles and showresults.
QUALITY IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN QUANTITY AND HONESTY IS ALWAYS THE BEST POLICY IN BREEDING AS WELL IN CIVIL LIFE
