I have some bad news. Yesterday Darcy would not eat much. This morning she was bleeding so I took her to the Vet. This is the easiest way to tell you---Darcy will be spayed
Pyometra is a disease mainly of middle-aged female dogs that have not been spayed.

. Other girls will be bred soon

Puppies should not be left alone for more than three to four hours at a time. Puppy's need to eliminate often and it should be cleaned up soon or it will promote bad habits into Adult hood. A second pup would be a good idea but you would have twice the mess and two that haven't learned good habits during an important time in there life. But at least the other would not be alone . Just like human babies they need a lot of attention and affection.

We get all colors of Scotties --Here some of our pups from past litters
