When Pirjo told me she was going to mate Puuma (Saga's
mother) with a Canadian male Regal, I became interested immediately. I knew
that my old afghanlady Janis wouldn't be with me and Saga forever. It was
time to get a little sister to Saga. Since I was so pleased with Saga's
temperament, there were no doubts that my next dog would also be a whippet.
And getting another pup from an interesting litter, felt like winning
As I feared, Janis moved to the rainbowbridge the next
spring. But there was also good news at the end of the rainbow; Puuma's
season had begun. I started to wait for my puppy with little butterflies in
my tummy. Butterflies doubled, when ultrasound revealed that there was only
one puppy growing inside Puuma. I hoped so much that it would be a girl?
