There are 6 puppies in the litter.

Maggie is resting with her babies! This is her second litter. She is a great mom!


After retiring Krystle & Vanna, Maggie is my largest female Bichon. She weighs around 17 lbs.


The puppies!! Sooo cute, dew claws already removed. I did it myself! First time and it went really well (Daryl has always done it in the past).

These puppies will be ready for new homes after August 2nd.


Here is the regal father, Ricky. He is OFA certified! He is a hefty 25 lbs!!

Retired Breeders

Friday I rehomed 6 of our beloved breeder dogs and officially retired them from our breeding program. I took a last photo of each dog. The new owners shared a few things.


Vanna, large Bichon female…larger than life, happy, and friendly.


Mosely, Bichon male. “He’s a hoot! He tries to guard his space some, but immediately submits if he is called on it”!



Harmony & R.B., female and male Shihtzus…like frolicking puppies!


Sebastian, male Shihtzu. I just have to say that because he was not even 2 years old, it was very difficult to let him go. He made my Shichon puppies. “He’s like Eyeore, but he’s pulling at my heart strings”!!


Molly, Tri female Cavalier…she’s adjusting well and making herself right at home.

Many of you have puppies from these wonderful parents! Know that they are all in great homes and being spoiled rotton (in a good way, of course)!!

We are almost done with our kennel reduction project. We have 6 more adults, 2 female ShihTzu, 1 female Bichon, and 3 male Bichons that are still looking for their forever homes.


I learned a new word today…Pergola. We are building one, but I didn’t know what to call it!

After googling gazebo and porch ideas, I stumbled on some photos of what I had in mind and discovered it had a name!!

Our insurance company is requiring some porch railings on two of the three porches that are on the new house.

Daryl has started on one of the porches.


It’s a great start and I think enough, for now, to satisfy the insurance company. We plan to finish it in August when he has more time.

So now that I know what I’m looking for, I found some ideas that I love!


Love the fabric detail and the slatted top!


Here it is at night with little white lights.



I stole this photo because the bottom picture shows a brown porch with white railings and a white gazebo. Because the trim on our house is white, I think the Pergola is also going to be white.

I can’t wait to have some beautiful fabric, white lights, and a sweet candle light supper!! That setting is fit for ANY guest!
