We hope to answer most of our existing and future clients' questions about
Canine Cryobank procedures on these pages and offer a global networking
opportunity for breeders worldwide. So if any of your potential clients,
either stud owner or bitch owner have questions about breeding, we hope
your "phone" time will be reduced by referring them to these
The periodic e mail newsletters provide insight into "REAL LIFE;
EVERYDAY EXPERIENCES " in our daily efforts to help breeders successfully
use cooled, frozen, or natural breeding to accomplish their breeding goals.
We will archive past newsletters on the web page so you can refer to them.
If you are a Canine Cryobank client or storee and want to have reciprocal
links, email or fax us. If your stud is proven for frozen or cooled semen,
we encourage you to let the world know via the web.
If the facility that handled your assisted breeding is proven, i.e produced
cooled pups or successfully collected cooled semen for your litter, please
breeders know by letting us put those names on our page:
Also we are always impressed by the growing number of our talented, gifted
clients (NO, NOT THE DOGS, the owners!) Our client base includes authors,
lecturers, dog trainers ,seminar leaders, musicians with CDs, artists,
poets, etc. We will include them in our "Books, CD, Videotape, page

Frozen semen litters-International/Movie star sperm International
More on the record 14 pup frozen semen litter of Jan Reital's Ch. Tifarah's
Hi-Flying Victory in Australia. Seven-boys/seven girls during a 24 hour
whelping. We are still awaiting details of the insemination method and
timing. This semen has now produced litters in four foreign countries!
Movie Star Sperm
This week the Homeward Bound Star, Sure-Grip Rattler came in to have semen
stored. This is the second star from that movie we have stored. The Portuguese
Padango, Giggilo, was stored some time ago. I wonder with the advent of
cloning if the movie dogs will be amidst the first to be "relived".
Kyle Symmes owner of Rattler, has been an active promoter of the American
Bulldog, which is actually the bulldog of Elizabethan times, large (about
Lab size), strong, agile, a natural breeder,
a natural whelper. Picture on http://www.caninecryobank.com/amazon.html
The media continues to have us on TV a radio programs (Channel 10 evening
news most recently) regarding cloning of pets. No one ever calls us afterward
so I guess we are safely estimating the needs of the market. Reports through
the underground network system say blastocysts are being grown at several
locations in the world. Another unsubstantiated report from the funded
researchers through a hopeful dog owner projects dog clones will readily
available in five years. See previous newsletters and clone page.
Cooled Semen Litters: Bullmastiffs
"Thought you might like to know that Donna Lukers' bitch from
Cayuga, Ontario, Canada whelped 8 puppies yesterday, 6 boys and 2 girls
from fresh chilled."
Wild Heart Bullmastiffs
Carol's note: Not bad for semen that was collected on a Friday, lost by
Fed Express for Sat. delivery, and inseminated on Monday at 60% Motility.
We did send more as I remember on Monday for Tuesday insemination. Inseminating
vet was in Orchard Park, New
York; a veterinarian who is not "a 'wannabe' but actually produces
And just today another message :"Carol we have four new babies in
Kailua, Hawaii from fresh chilled semen. Their breeder Craig Garcia says
they are very health and strong. Thanks for all your
Wild Heart Bullmastiffs"
Carol's note: This was a NON SURGICAL insemination
Gee, and I still
get telephone calls from eastern based breeders reporting fresh artificial
inseminations don't work in bullmastiffs!!!( or Great
Danes, or St. Bernards, etc. etc.)
The following scenario explains why a shipped brood bitch may stand, breed
successfully, be shipped home, and still not have pups. ..Carol
"Hi Carol and staff,
Spice is really getting big. She stood for the stud a week before her
eggs descended. Ron drove clear to Virginia to breed her so that we didn't
have to fly her. If we had not used progesterone testing we would have
missed her! Ron was anxious to get going since he had been away a month,
but stayed until the time was right! Yes, yes yes puppies are due June
6-9. I will keep you posted on
puppies' arrival date, etc. This is her last litter. Thanks so much for
your help. You guys are the greatest! So happy that we had a chance to
get to know you. Spice really looks big. We'll keep you
updated on her progress. Thanks a bunch, Linda
Carol's note: This will make three successive litters with progesterone
testing after failures without progesterone testing for owners Ron and
Linda Waggoner and Spice, their champion

Progesterone story #2 of the week
The lady on the phone sounded stressed as she explained that she was in
San Diego from the Bay area to breed to Enzo, Rod Thompkins' famous German
Shepherd Schutzhund competitor. Her Bay area vet had done a progesterone
test Thursday and told her to breed in two days. The breeding never happened
Saturday and the owners were certain the bitch had a circular stricture
because Enzo could not penetrate. I asked what the progesterone test result
was on Thursday and she said around 2ng. I replied that the bitch would
be ready in six days from Thursday and to re-evaluate the stricture situation
then. The lady was not at all happy with my explanation as she insisted
her vet said to breed!! The lady called on Thursday to say the breeding
went very easily the night before (six days after the 2ng/ml) and she
now was asking about her other bitch who last season, never stood and
had to be muzzled, force bred, and never conceived. What do you think
the reason could be???
I hope we hear that her bitch conceived this time. Enzo's semen evaluations
are usually in the two billion range, including one done just days after
her bitch was bred . So Enzo did his part in the
Attention Samoyed Specialty attendees at our Cryobank tour! You were surprised
to find your chauffeur for the ride from the showground was recording
artist, our friend San Diego Music
Award winner Lisa Sanders. Home from a tour, Lisa happily volunteered
to drive the Samoyed fanciers. On Lisa's latest CD is a song "I Believe"
written at the Sperm bank--no not about the sperm bank, just created here.
Creative energy flourishes on many levels here, I believe.
Animal Communicator, (some call it psychic) Lydia Hiby's San Diego workshop

a lifetime, join Lydia for one of her wild Dolphin encounters in Mexico
