Littermates

Here is an update from Janet P! She has two Silver Paw pups, Mickey, a sable/white male, and Dottie, the sable/white female pictured here. Dottie is her second pup from us.

The two pups pictured here are siblings as she explains in her update! Thanks so much Janet for sharing. I LOVED seeing all of you together again!!

(Dottie is the smaller sable/white female and Eddy is her solid sable brother)

Thought you might like to see Dottie J (Palmer) and Eddy G (Littlefield) at 7 months old.

We finally were able to get the two (litter-mates) together. They were excited to see each other (or maybe just another dog??). Dottie became ‘boss’ almost immediately; and Eddy let her, just like our Mickey has.

It was such a thrill to see Eddy. Needless to say he is a very handsome boy. And, obviously he is much bigger than Dottie. Hard to believe they are litter mates, especially since Dottie was not at all a runt. Dottie weighs 14 lbs. Eddy is in the 20 lbs. area.

For sure Eddy is as loved and doted on as Mickey and Dottie are.

Anyway, very exciting, maybe for me more than anyone. HAHA

This pic was taken back in July, after I had picked up Dottie and Eddy, the day Sharon and Bill came to take Eddy home.

Boston Pups

Last night, Callie, an Accelerated Puppy from Jesse’s litter took the red-eye to Boston.

She has arrived safely and is a “cuddler” according to her new mama!

A few other “Bostonians” shared their photos when they saw Callie!

This is “Spangle” from Princess/Skippy 12-21-13 litter. She’s almost 1 year old.

And this is a solid sable pup that also lives in the Boston area!

While it’s a long trip from Spokane to Boston, all of these puppies made it safely on the red-eye flight.

School Pups

In the midst of matching the newborn pups, we are Accelerating 3 pups that will be going home this weekend!

They are all doing so well! Jax, the solid sable is a favorite because he chases the kids and is just always bouncing around and ready for playtime. Jack, the black & white pup, and Callie, sable/white sister of Jax are adored because they love to run and play, but they also don’t mind being swaddled in a jacket or tucked into a zipped jacket when the weather is freezing.

The pups walk on the leash and they are doing really well with the crate and going potty outside. We haven’t done stairs yet, but they ride like champs in the car and they all love people!

Enjoy some recent photos!

Progress!

Please take a minute to check the Waiting List and the Matched Puppies List!

We’ve made progress! If you see your name on the Matched Puppies List, it means I have confirmed puppy selection with you and I will be depositing your deposit check in the bank and it will no longer be refundable. So far, I believe everyone has received their first choice puppy!

I love when the details begin to line up and we are able to make definite plans for each specific puppy. I’ll be in touch with everyone regarding puppy delivery, balance due, and the rest of the details when the puppies are 5-6 weeks old (which is a couple weeks away).

Thanks again for everyone’s cooperation!

And for those wondering if we will have some extra Christmas puppies?? The answer is YES!!

Puppy Selection

I’ve heard from many of you, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

The email I just sent to some of you may be a bit redundant, sorry for that. Also, if I’ve asked something you already told me, please show me grace. I’m not sure I’ve ever managed over 20 people before and with 3 litters that will all be ready in the same week. Usually things are spread out a little more.

I plan to match people with their first choices that they’ve shared with me as far as possible. So far, we have enough puppies and we don’t have any choice conflicts yet!

I still hope to hear from those that received my most recent email. If you responded to the last posting here, I didn’t send you a general email just now about puppy selection because you already let me know.

In case I missed anyone, I’ll post the email here as well.

Checking in again regarding your puppy timeline. Are you subscribed to my website and getting the emails when I post?

We are doing puppy selection with the current litters that will be ready right before Christmas, or January for an Accelerated puppy, and I need to know if you want to pass or are ready to choose a puppy.

This evening I will be matching puppies to everyone who has responded regardless of their place on the waiting list so I’d really like to hear from you. I have to bump up this selection process because I’m getting emails daily for Christmas puppies so I need to know what I potentially have available. Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you!

So far, I have the following info:

Thanks for working with me through this process!

Christmas Puppies

I’m checking in again with my waiting list. Since all of these puppies will be ready just before Christmas, and I have new people emailing me daily about getting a “Christmas Puppy”, I need to check in again regarding everyone’s timeline.

I know I’ve asked this before, but the list is so long now, it is easier for me if everyone will simply send me a quick note to let me know where you stand and what your timeline looks like.

Puppies from the current litters are ready the week before Christmas if they go home at 8 weeks old, and around late January for an Accelerated Puppy.

Please drop me a quick note and let me know if you are interested in pups within this timeline. We will not hold puppies without additional charges, so it’s best if they go home at either 8 weeks old or 13 weeks old. Anything between those ages will be charged $100/week for us to keep them starting the day they turn 9 weeks old.

What I’d like to accomplish from this is to be able to tell the new people if there is a chance for a Christmas puppy, or if I already have 17 people that are currently on the waiting list that are interested in the current litters. Since the waiting list is well over 17 people, it’s possible they will all be matched.

But as with Sadie’s litter, many people on the waiting list “passed” on her pups, which resulted in “new” people ultimately adopting those puppies. The puppy matching process is almost always a bit complex, but I do my best to keep it as simple as possible.

So, please let me know:

1. If you want to pass on the current litters because you need to wait till spring or later.

2. You want to pass because we don’t have the color/gender that you want.

3. You definitely want to be considered for a pup out of the current litters.

4. The timeline is perfect for your schedule to either get an 8 week old puppy, or an Accelerated Puppy.

5. Anything else I need to know!

If I don’t hear from you by Sunday evening, I will be moving down the waiting list and assuming you are not yet ready for a puppy (I would prefer you just let me know you are not yet ready).

Please email me at silverpawcavachons@gmail.com.

Please DO NOT leave a comment in the thread on this. Managing my email is all I can keep up with and I will not respond to thread comments.

Thanks!
