Today’s Quick News

Besides puppy baths, and photos, today had a couple other notable things happen.  Pansy & Pujo’s litter was due today, and she delivered one solid black female Cavachon.  Again, I always wish for at least 4 pups in a litter, but getting a solid black pup is always a good thing because the color is so rare.

Another thing that happened this morning…Lilly & Colby tied the knot and mated.  If all goes well, we should have new Cavachon puppies born in November and ready to go home in January!!

I have a very busy week ahead, with my sister and brother-in-law coming on Wednesday to stay a week, but somehow I will squeeze in puppy baths for Annie’s males, and new pictures and video of them.

Until then, have a tail waggin’ day!!  Kristy

There are more pictures available of each puppy. I will begin contacting those on the waiting list today via email.

If all the chips fall in the right places, these pups should go to the first 4 people on the waiting list:)

I would love to hear from Rita, Lisa, Coral, and Aurora ASAP!! Please email me! Thanks!

Max (Service Dog) Update

Receiving this email forced me to hold back tears! Knowing that we bred this dog leaves me feeling very proud and truly grateful.

Enjoy learning about Max and all that he has accomplished in less than a year of life!

Kristy,
I wanted to share with you pictures of our little Cavachon “Max”, as we know him. He is from Lilly’s October 2012 litter and came to us January of 2013.

In the 9 months he has been with the family he has/received:

1. The AKC’s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) award with the American Kennel Club

2. Service Dog Certification as a diabetic scent dog (August @ 10 months)

3. Attended elementary school (1st grade) and attended a preschool for kids with special needs.

4. He drove the Alaska/Canada Hwy

5. He went fishing in Prince William Sound

6. He flew on a small engine plane around Alaska and…

7. Returned to Oregon sitting in the cabin with his 6 year-old charge!

He started obedience and service dog training classes the week he came to us. When he was 16 wks old he started alerting of changes in my grand-daughter’s blood sugar level.

Max may be small but he has a big responsibility and the attitude to match. He is a happy and playful puppy, but put on his ‘red service dog vest’ – he is all business and his attention goes to a 6 year-old diabetic child, they are a perfect match!!

We love him!!

The New Planner

I can’t let this pass without sharing at least a photo. I will give more details in my personal blog, http://www.gracewithouttears.com.  I discovered a fun planner, I ordered one for the dogs, and I am going to begin using it for everything DOG!

If you want to see the planners, visit http://www.erincondren.com, and you can see what they look like inside. The part I’m also excited about is the custom cover that I designed.

After several emails back and forth, and 3 proofs, they finally got all the details as I had requested, and I gave them the green light this evening to send it to the printers.

I’m hoping it will arrive on Friday as I upgraded to overnight shipping. The planner starts in July 2013, so I will be able to get started using it immediately.

This is going to be so helpful keeping track of expenses, daily routines, and all the details that go into raising each individual litter of puppies. The shot schedules, worming schedules, photos and video updates…the list just goes on and on!

I’m sure I’ll share some photos of the inside, once I get a few weeks/months under my belt.

For now, enjoy the final proof and send me photos of your cute babies. Next year, I will get the same cover, but I will want all new pictures of each color of Cavachons!!
