The Maddie list is closed and interest came from people #69-108 on the waiting list. Again, I don’t know where my #1-50 people are, but this is just good news for the newer people on the waiting list.
Tomorrow around 1pm I will start calling people. Here is the order:
1. #69 Libby G
2. #74 Lynn A (currently pending with Buddy)
3. #75 Melissa D
4. #80 Summer K
5. #88 Holly W
6. #97 Richard M
7. #105 Maryann L
8. #108 Michael N
There were also two families that filled out the litter form without being on the waiting list. If you’d like to join the waiting list, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get the process started.
Those who will be called tomorrow, please be sure you are by your phone. I’m hoping we will get all puppies matched tomorrow afternoon. Remember I’m starting at 1pm Pacific Standard Time.
It’s time to begin puppy selection for Maddie’s boys. I posted a video of them today on Facebook and there are a few pictures here as well.
Since they are all boys and look so similar, we will need to FaceTime if possible for the actual selection process. From what I can tell now, there is one very outgoing pup, one rather shy pup, and two in between. It’s a pretty typical bell curve litter when it comes to personalities.
They are F1 puppies from a Bichon mother and a black/tan Cavalier father. I expect them to be from 15-20 lbs as adults.
They will be ready to go home beginning Tuesday, March 9th. We would like to see them all go home between 8-9 weeks old if possible (March 9-15). After 9 weeks we do charge a fee to keep them extra weeks.
If you are on our waiting list, and are open to a solid sable male, and their going home date works for you, please fill out the following form to be considered for this litter.
I will accept names until this Thursday night, March 4, at 10pm. I will then close the form. I will post my call list Friday morning here on the blog and begin calling people at 2pm on Friday, March 5th.
Please be available for my call. If there is no answer I will move to the next person on the list, and then try calling you back. I don’t want to skip over anyone.
Here is a quick snap of each puppy.
Can you tell them apart??!!
They are all doing well, playing and exploring together! Looking forward to talking with several of you on Friday!
Please check the waiting list as some of your numbers may have changed. I have removed those that were matched to the Mimi litter and another couple families that found a puppy elsewhere.
I plan to post the Maddie puppies tomorrow (four solid sable males) and get the process started for that litter. There will be a Google form that you will need to fill out if you’d like to be considered for one of her puppies. They will be ready in about three weeks. I will post all the details tomorrow for her litter.
I’d also like to be sure that everyone understands that I need you to follow this blog, read all the posts as they happen, in order to not miss any of the information. I am not able to keep a running spreadsheet of who wants what color, size, gender, and all the specific timelines for over 100 families, so I depend on each of you to reach out to me when you see a litter that has a puppy you may want.
I know I’ve said this before but I want to thank all of you who have been following along and staying current with everything that is happening. For now, the Maddie pups are the only pups that we have that are not matched so we will be having a fairly quiet March. Scarlett did get bred so we are hoping to welcome a litter of F1b puppies at the end of March.
For those that have been following the bit that I’ve shared about my mom, she is with me now so I won’t have to be traveling back and forth to California until it’s time for her to go back home. She is gaining strength, going to Physical Therapy, and generally improving each day. Thank you to all of you that sent heartfelt notes. I really felt the love and care coming from all of you!
The Mimi litter list is closed and it’s time to show you who I will be calling next week.
I’ve divided the list into groups of five. My guess is that I may get down to #10, but chances are the puppies will be matched even before that.
Let’s have some fun guessing how this could shake out. Do remember that nobody is locked into anything and people do change their minds and final decisions haven’t been made yet.
But if we go strictly by what everyone has indicated in their preferences, it might look something like this…
Renee-Blaze golden girl
MargieScott-Other golden girl
Howard, Lily, Libby-pass because all the girls are already selected
Krista-Other blenheim male
Now things rarely go this smoothly, but this should give everyone an inside glance at what could happen. This also helps you know whether you’ll potentially get a call or not.
On puppy matching day I’ll call in this list order until I’ve matched all the puppies. Then I will post a new blog post congratulating everyone. I will not call the rest of the list so do keep checking the blog for my update.
Let’s do puppy selection Tuesday evening starting at 6pm. Does that work for everyone? I can do FaceTime with those that have an iPhone.
Please let me know if that doesn’t work for you. It’s very important that you’re able to take a call that evening as I don’t want to skip over anyone.
The puppies will be ready to go home after February 13. We’d like them to go by the 19th at the latest.
Please email if you have questions and I want to thank everyone who reached out and filled out the litter form. My guess is that this time we probably won’t get too far down the list, but honestly, you just never know!
We will begin puppy selection next week when I’m back from CA. I’ll post the order of selection tonight once I close the form. Currently, 22 people have responded for the 5 puppies.
Remember that after Mimi’s litter, we have four solid sable males from Maddie’s litter.
“Bailey,”large male from Penny, went home yesterday. The story is on my Instagram and Facebook pages. Here he is with his new family! The mural gave the illusion of mouse ears!! This is the second dog for the S family. They have a black/white dog, “Booker,” that they bought from us 12 years ago. He’s still going strong and I can’t wait to hear when he decides to be good friends with his new little brother. It can often take a couple weeks before the existing dog warms up to the new puppy!!
As I promised, here is the blog post for the Mimi litter. There is a new video of them on Facebook. They will be ready for their new homes after February 13th. We would like them all to go home the following week if possible.
They were born December 19, 2020 and it is an F1 litter. They are looking to be on the average to small side. Mom is 12-13lbs and dad is 16 lbs. Kingsley has been my male that has produced the smallest babies and Mimi is a new mom so I don’t have any data from past litters for her.
