I'm sorry to hear this, Pam. I agree with Sophie, though, everyone I know who does live cover allows the dogs to tie several times over a number of days. If you have to do AI, it is done with the help of a repro vet who can test the bitch's hormone levels to time the AI as closely as possible. Even then, AI seems not to be as sure a bet.
I hope you have better luck on her next heat!
