Many of you who follow our Facebook page already have heard the news; however, for those you who are not on Facebook, we are excited to share with you that we have officially confirmed that Ms. Riley is expecting!
With the help of our friends at Green Gables Farm, Riley (aka Shallow Creek’s “Ask Me Why”) was paired with Clay (aka Green Gables “In the Potter’s Hand”) in late April. When are they due to arrive? Well, the average gestation period for dogs is about 63 days, which makes our approximate due date June 27.
So far Riley is doing exceptional! Right now we are focused on keeping her in good health. In addition to maintaining her healthy diet, each day we go on a long walk around the farm, which helps her to maintain her strength. The first few weeks all she wanted to do was sleep; however, recently it seems she has returned back to her normal happy and energetic self. We are also starting to notice that her waistline is steadily disappearing!
We are receiving multiple inquiries, on a daily basis, about adopting a puppy from this litter. While we will not begin accepting formal reservations until after the litter is born, we are accepting adoption applications. If you are interested in adding an Ashling Place Labradors puppy to your family, please send your inquiries to us at ashlingplacelabradors.com in order to begin the adoption process.
