Maggie and Joe, Coco and Dash

Posted on May 7, 2021 at 11:05 PM

Maggie May and Joe Biz had found each other and did what doggies do best...and what will come of it, you say? I can only hope and pray a full litter of VERY healthy and beautiful yellow puppies! And if there is one black puppy, then that will even be better (That one is for Evie!).

Another fun bit of information I would like to add here is that, yes, I did it...I pulled Coco out of retirement and got her and Dash together ONCE AGAIN and, well, ahemmm...they enjoyed their little 20 minut...

Coco Pupplings are 2 weeks old!

Posted on February 3, 2021 at 3:30 PM

The Coco Puffs are already two weeks old! They're eyes are open and now their ears are starting to open as well. Such little darlings! My granddaughter, Vienna, was over last night and today when she helped me to tag the puppies (give them their collars) administer de-worming med and weigh them, when we were done she walked away saying," see you later, little darlings!" And it got me thinking what is so cute about that word, "darling" and I think it's the "ling" part of the word.

Then ...

8 New Puffs!

Posted on January 22, 2021 at 5:15 PM

Coco did it again! She brought forth her new litter of 8 new puppers! Coco has really amazed me over the years with her ability to whelp (give birth) her pups with NO HELP whatsoever! In fact, I purposely left the room so she could get a new puppy out on her own. She likes to do things HER way. She is just like that!

And another thing that is pretty exciting...all eight puppies have new owners coming to pick them up on puppy pick up day! Woohoo! That is my favorite day! Seeing the fami...

Maggie and Chic Certification

Posted on December 2, 2020 at 10:40 PM

OFA has a special certificate for dogs who meet the parent standards of their breed. It is called CHIC certification. I decided to get Maggie May CHIC certified.

Last week was her eye exam and she passed! The other genetic testing and xrays were done months ago and she passed those tests as well. So Maggie has been set to a higher standard, which means her pups will be going for $800 each when I have her bred in the spring of 2021. 

This is all so exciting...


Coco out of Retirement

Posted on December 2, 2020 at 10:35 PM

I did it. It wasn't planned from the beginning but Coco went into her estrus cycle and she seemed so eager for another round of pups that I had to oblige her.

So Coco and Dash are at it again! They tied twice for 20 minutes each time and now the date is set for January 21, 2021....

Imagine that! I was concerned that Coco would bring Maggie into her heat cycle as well and I am most certainly not ready for 2 litters at the same time this soon. But Maggie decided to wait for better w...

2020 Empty Nest

Posted on October 6, 2020 at 11:30 AM

The puppies have all gone to their new homes! The nest is empty!

Pepper and Coco are officially retired now. They are both 8 years old and have given us wonderful, beautiful, and healthy puppies and now it is time for them to enjoy their golden years (though I know they loved having their little puppies and were good mamas!)

Maggie is 2 years old and in 2021 she will be bred for her first time. I have gone the extra mile with her and got her CHIC certified through OFA...which simp...

Count Down has Begun!

Posted on August 18, 2020 at 10:50 PM

Wow. The Coco Puffs are nearing their 7 week birth age...in 3 days! and they will be going home in 4days! Funny...I'm gonna miss those little darlings. But! Their new lives will just be beginning and they will be very very happy. I am sure of it!

Pepper's Ronies just turned 4 weeks old today. They have come a long way. Their mother had an emergency hysterectomy when they were just shy of 1 week old and Coco was called in to be the wet-nurse until Pepper arrived the next day to claim her...

Breeding Rights

Posted on August 1, 2020 at 6:10 PM

Hey all...

I have made a major change in my pricing...

Normally I have had our puppies priced at one price and then the breeding rights as a separate price, but at the same cost as the price of a puppy. Well, due to a conversation with my Breeder Mentor, Kathy, I decided to lower the price for breeding rights down to $400.

That's it for now! Ta ta!

Pepper and Jett's Brood

Posted on July 23, 2020 at 10:55 PM

Pepper finally whelped her litter of seven pups...down from last year and the year before and I think this will be her last litter!

She gave us four boys...3 black and 1 yellow

She gave us 3 girls...2 black and 1 yellow

I am proud of Pepper. She is a very attentive mother loving on those little darlin's!

Coco Out did Herself!

Posted on July 4, 2020 at 11:20 AM

10 puppies!

This is Coco's largest litter yet! Imagine 10 puppies! Oh. My. GOSH! Coco does so well with the birthing process. I was just praying to God for her! I also told him how nice it would be if we, women, could give birth that easily. I find it nearly impossible to imagine birth without pain...honestly...and I have a fairly good imagination!

Well, we are also very blessed to have all the puppies spoken for. Just had a visit this morning by a young newly married man who want...
