Bruce Wayne and I have been so blessed this year. Over the past year, we’ve been able to travel to various dog conferences, attend swanky dog events, participate in fun photoshoots, travel to Israel and meet amazing fellow pet parents! Overall, I would say 2017 has been very good to us. And, as if this year couldn’t have gotten any more exciting for us, we have been saving the BEST news for last ….. BRUCE WAYNE PUPPIES HAVE BEEN BORN!
Yes, you read that right, no need to adjust your screen. As many of you know, my journey started with learning that ViaGen Pets could preserve Bruce Wayne’s DNA with their Genetic Preservation Kit. Since I was absolutely sure that I wanted to one day clone Bruce Wayne, I knew that taking this first step was the right direction for me.
Once my Veterinarian sent off Bruce Wayne’s tissue samples to ViaGen Pets, they immediately began working on culturing his cells. After the ViaGen Pets team worked their magic, they were happy to report that they were able to successfully culture millions of Bruce Wayne cells.
Once I decided that I was completely ready to clone Bruce Wayne, I notified ViaGen Pets and they immediately went to work on turning my dream into a reality. What happened next was nothing short of a miracle thanks to the effort and hard work put in by the ViaGen Pets team. The ViaGen Pets team transferred Bruce Wayne’s embryos into a surrogate dog. After waiting a few weeks, I am happy to report that the pregnancy was a complete success! A sonogram, as shown below, confirmed that Bruce Wayne puppies were developing well.
All this excitement was then met with anxiousness to see these beautiful puppies! Like “regular” puppies, cloned puppies experience the same gestation period and birthing process. So, yes, I still had to wait the 58 -68 days for the puppies to be born.
Originally, we had thought that there might be 2-3 puppies, however, in true superhero fashion, Bruce Wayne surprised us all and with such a successful transfer of embryos, we have been blessed with 5 beautiful puppies! Yes, again you read that right, 5! While you can certainly ask ViaGen Pets to transfer a conservative or high amount of embryos, mother nature is mother nature and ultimately determines how many puppies are born.
With all that being said, I am happy to introduce you to the Bruce Wayne puppies! Currently, all puppies and Mom are healthy and happy. I couldn’t be happier or more excited for this new chapter in our lives. I know I’m biased, but aren’t they just absolutely adorable and precious?!
I know that there may be questions as to why each puppy’s markings may be slightly different. While I could try and give you the scientific answer, ViaGen Pets does a much better job of explaining all the details in a blog post, which can be found here.
Keep an eye out for some fun giveaways, as we will be hosting a fun contest to see if you can guess the names I’ve picked out for the Bruce Wayne puppies. Keep an eye on our Instagram account for details and clues.
ViaGen Pets has been amazingly generous with their time in providing me with continuous status updates and gorgeous puppy photos. As I continue to watch these amazing puppies grow, I will share their updates and photos with you, as well.
