    Default take this time around

    Hi, all :)

    I found this phrase in a novel (The Marked Son) and I'd like to know the meaning. I've googled it, but couldn't find one.


    “Shelley’s my best breeder. I shouldn’t have left her, but she didn’t take this time around.

    A million thanks for your help! :D

    The writer mates this dog regularly, but on the most recent occasion she did not become pregnant.

    You need to separate it like this: “Shelley’s my best breeder. I shouldn’t have left her, but she didn’t take, this time around.
    The comma is not necessary but "she didn't take" is a unit as is "this time around".
