Silver Fox Wins the Gold
Meanwhile, after 3 births and NO surviving babies, we gave Cream back to the person we got her from. She was able to get 8 surviving young from her. I think the kids and the dog and the general state of chaos we call home was just too much for Cream. Now its time to determine Sugar's fate as well. She was bred unsuccessfully twice this season. She was bred again just the past week. If we encounter another failed breeding, we will get rid of our last Californian/New Zealand cross and raise strictly Silver Foxes. They seem to handle the heat better, are better mothers, less skiddish, never bite, sometimes cuddle, and are just plain beautiful. They get the gold in my book.
