Walla Walla, WA & Long Beach, CA

Hi Everyone,

I’m doing some traveling and am headed to Walla Walla, WA tomorrow (Sunday, July 17) and to Long Beach, CA (Wednesday, July 20th). Who is ready for a puppy?

Here is our update on which puppies are still available.

Golden Female, Missy Litter
Blenheim Female, Missy Litter
Golden Female, Dutchess Litter
Golden Male, Dutchess litter, sale pending

These puppies are all current with shots and worming and they are ready to go anytime. There will be a puppy nanny fee for travel but it could save someone a lot of time not having to come up to us.

Please call if you’re interested. 509-936-2715

Beautiful Bunty

Today is Bunty’s 4th birhday, Bastille Day. Her mom was Kenzie and her dad was Kingsley. She is 11 lbs. and almost entirely black with a white soul patch, a small white patch on her breast and a few white toes. What an unbelievably loving and lovable companion she has been! I waited a long time to get a small black puppy and was rewarded with Bunty. She loves everyone and wants to say hello to people and other dogs when we walk, but is easily contained if that’s not a good idea. She especially likes to chase balls (still not quite ready to “leave them” everytime) and to sleep on my lap when she gets tired. She and kitty get along famously. She sleeps with me and usually ends up under the covers before dawn (my choice — I could have trained he to sleep in a crate). She is a joy!

Love those black beauties. We only get solid black pups 1-2 times per year, so it’s definitely a more rare color. Kenzie, her mama, has been retired because she struggled during birth both times she had puppies. She is living a happy life with a family, walks, and cozy beds and treats!

“Sisters”

Bella and Daisy aren’t actually sisters, but they are close enough. With just three months separating their birthdays (late 2018 & early 2019), they seems to be like two peas in a pod.

I couldn’t resist sharing this adorable photo of them with their tongues sticking out!

Also, if you’re wondering about their colors, the dog on the left is an adult solid sable and the right is a blenheim.

If you’d like to share your Silver Paw Cavachon on the blog, send an update with a bit of info (please include parents and birthday if possible) and some photos and I’d be happy to post here on the blog. It’s so fun to hear what the dogs can do now and how they have become part of the family.

Obi Wags Kenobi’s Update

I love getting updates on the puppies. This is an Olivia & Jester pup!

Obi is now 5 months old and doing great. He completed his puppy training, goes to weekly socialization “play dates” and has just started his “Teen manners” classes. He continues to love everyone and everything which is what we wanted. He can Sit, Down, Come, Touch, Leave it, and Drop it. He loves chasing balls but is learning that bringing them back to me allows the game to continue. We are working on “Go to your Matt” and “Stay”. He is still lovely in his crate overnight and many times puts himself to bed. He is already 18 lbs! Bigger than we thought he would be since we thought he would be about 19 lbs fully grown. He may be a “megachon”. People love his friendly demeanor – he has never met anyone he did not like! Even the young man with autism down the street who tends to make sudden loud noises which has caused other dogs to startle and bark at him. Obi loves him (which I encouraged by giving Obi a piece of cheese when we would see him) and they have a good cuddle every time we meet. My neighbours had to euthanize their old dog about 2 weeks after Obi came home and now that Obi walks well on a leash, they will come over and take him for a walk and a cuddle when they need a little “puppy therapy”.

What a blessing he is to his community! He’s a “golden” dog, which is the color of the four females we have that are available and ready to go home any day. What a little trooper Obi is!!

Admin Details and Updates

This post is long, but very important.

This morning I called everyone that was interested in a Dutchess or Missy pup and have matched 4out of 12 puppies so far. We have one golden boy and two golden girls still available from the Dutchess litter, and five girls available from the Missy litter: one sable/white, two golden, and two blenheim. These puppies are ready to go home this coming weekend and they are so happy and cute. I’ll post pictures later today when I have some help holding them!

In other news, I have been actively trying to clean up my waiting list. I have removed over 30 names of people that either have already found a puppy or they have decided not to get a puppy. It has taken a lot of time to do this and there are still many people I have not been able to reach.

I usually don’t post full names on my website but I am going to share my list of those I still need to contact. If your name is below, please reach out via email (silverpawcavachons@gmail.com) or text (509-936-2715) or call me and let me know what your plans are moving forward.

This is my last effort to reach people. I am hopeful that I will hear from many of you on this list below. On July 31, I will be doing the final cleanup of the waiting list and names will be removed if I have not heard from you by that date.

If your name is NOT on this list below, we have spoken this summer and you should see a * by your name on the waiting list. If you have any questions, please give me a call. 509-936-2715.

Here are the names of those I have not been able to reach:

Chris & Ron Smith
Daryl & Kathy B
Debra Paxton
Chris Dickman
Sierra Adibi
David Katie G
Jen F
Judy D
Brook McIntire
Robin Maisel
Jerilyn Haney
Helen Gret Torres
Malia Perecki
Karina Dsouza
Maryanne Moreno Lorenz
Anne Marie Bammert
Brittany Lynn Hill
Mamie Bass
Sabrina Hill
Gwen Ahart

Back in the day, I only had the online waiting list and I only used the first initial of the last name. This has proven to be a very bad idea as I can’t even find the full names of Daryl & Kathy, David & Katie, Jen, and Judy. I really hope to hear from these 20 families ASAP. If we have spoken and I have wrongly placed your name on this ‘missing’ list above, please accept my apologies and reach out and let me know.

I think things got so crazy during and after Covid with puppy demand that I just wasn’t able to keep up with everything on the administrative end of things. As of now, things are under control and I just have these final 20 families to hear from.

Thanks for your help on all of this. I want my waiting list to actually reflect the right number of people interested in a puppy. It seems daunting when you’re new and see over 100 names on a list. The truth is, I have been matching puppies to new people consistently for the past 18 months and have mostly been working from the bottom of the waiting list as those have been the people ready to get a puppy. I do still follow the list faithfully, and I feel good knowing that I’ve spoken to the majority of you this summer.

Be watching for the updated pictures of the Missy litter and reach out when you’re ready to get a puppy. Thanks everyone!

Dutchess Puppy Selection

Hi Everyone!

All of the Scarlett puppies have been matched and it’s time now to talk about the Dutchess litter.

They are 8 weeks old and will be ready for their new homes on Thursday, July 14 after they see the vet and get their health certificates. There are five puppies in this litter, three girls and two boys.

Golden Female
Golden Female
Solid Sable Female
Golden Male
Solid Sable Male

These puppies should be the average 15-20lbs as adults. They have received their first shots and are up to date with worming. They are well socialized and learning about the crate.

Send an email to silverpawcavachons@gmail.com for more info. We are matching this litter to those on or off the waiting list. Those on the waiting list will be prioritized in waiting list order.

This is a great opportunity to get a summer puppy!! I will begin calling people on Sunday morning for puppy matching. If you are jot available at that time, reach out and I will work with you!

Puppies Ready

We would sure love to see the last two Scarlett Puppies go home this weekend. We still have the blenheim female and the golden male. They are fully vaccinated and ready to go!

Email List vs Waiting List

There is some confusion about the waiting list vs the email list. Let me explain:

The waiting list is the list of people that are serious about getting a puppy in the near or distant future. They have paid a fee to be on this list so they are prioritized in order when it’s time to choose a puppy. This list is on the sidebar of the website when you’re on a computer and at the bottom of the website when on a phone. There are currently 80 names on this list with a good chance that the number will go down once I’ve spoken with everyone (as mentioned in a previous post, I’m cleaning up my waiting list).

On the right sidebar of the website on a computer (teal section)
At the bottom of the website after scrolling down, down, down, when on a phone.

Then there is an email list. When on the website you are able to “subscribe” to the blog. This means you have typed in your email and every time I post on the blog, the blog post goes directly to your email. Some of you asked to be taken off this list. You can actually do that yourself. If you look at the very bottom of your email, you will see an option to unsubscribe. Simply click that link and follow the steps given.

I hope that clears things up. Reach out if you have questions and be sure you are subscribed to the website/blog if you don’t want to miss any details about what is happening at Silver Paw Cavachons!!

One Scarlett Pup Left & Waiting List Update & New Puppies

Hi Everyone,

We have just one more pup from Scarlett’s litter. She’s the light colored blenheim, almost more of a cream colored pup. She has her health certificate and can go anytime.

She’s friendly, loving, and has a very sweet nature. She’s happy and playful too and is ready for her forever home. She’s available to anyone on or not on the waiting list.

Ready for belly rubs!
She’s on the far left here.

In other news, I’ve been pouring over the waiting list and have contacted almost everyone. I’ve discovered a LOT of people found puppies elsewhere which I’m very happy they didn’t have to wait, or they changed their mind and decided not to get a puppy. Now that I know this information I am able to remove their names and our waiting list went from 120 down to 80! Within the 80 that are still on the list I’ve actually spoken to/emailed/texted just 43 of them, so chances are high there will be others removed from the list.

This explains why I’ve been matching puppies to completely new people not on the list or people that were at the very end of the waiting list. If you have been a little apprehensive about getting on a waiting list with over 100 people, believe me, if you’re not waiting for a tri color or black and tan puppy, chances are your wait is definitely less than a year (probably less than six months) and there may be no wait at all.

As puppies are matched, I plan to cap the waiting list at 75 so it will open and close as new litters are born and matched to their families.

Also, when you are ready for a puppy, YOU NEED TO CONTACT ME!! I do not call everyone on the waiting list to ask if you’re interested (it would take days as people aren’t home, available, or take a while to respond). Simply reach out to me when you see a litter you like and the timing works into your schedule. If you’re on our waiting list, you will be prioritized in waiting list order. If you’re not on the waiting list, you will be added in the order that you contact me, after the waiting list families.

I think that’s it for now. We have new puppies that will be ready in July and I WILL be traveling to Sacramento when they are old enough to fly. I can bring two in the cabin with me July 20th. If that works into your timeline be sure to reach out about the Dutchess and Missy puppies below.

Here’s a sneak peek.

Dutchess Litter-L to R…Gold F, Gold F, Solid Sable F, Gold M, Solid Sable M
Missy Litter-(all females)…L to R-sable/white, blenheim, gold, sable/white, gold, solid sable, blenheim.

Also, we will probably have more puppies available in September. That’s all for now!!

Kristy 🐶💕😊
