Putting the Puzzle Together

Puppy selection is fun, hard, agonizing, frustrating, exciting, too slow, too fast, disappointing, heart melting, and absolutely fulfilling, not to mention all the emotions you all are feeling!!

I just sent this email. It’s a perfect example of the jumbled mess of puzzle pieces this process is, while in the midst of it. 

Do not despair, the puzzles do get completed, and the end result is always happy and joyful. 

Enjoy a look into my side of the process!!

Vivian wants the sable/white with more color from the Jesse litter. Linda wants that one too, so might end up passing on Abbey’s s/w to wait for one with a more symmetrical face in a future litter. She will tell me today. Kristen is for sure taking one of Justyne’s blenheim girls. Stephanie wanted a golden girl?? Daniella has been matched to the black girl. Jacqueline liked the mis marked female from Jesse’s litter. Erin is still thinking, but likes the Jesse girls. I think there will still be at least 1 female when we get to your name, possibly a golden one? This part of the process gets really complex until the puzzle pieces fit into place. 

That’s the best I can tell you right now!!”


This is What We Have

All of our Cavachon litters have been born and there are 18 puppies to choose from. Two have already been matched to their families which leaves the following 16 puppies still available for adoption. 

 
This is how I keep track once puppy selection has taken place. The sticker is removed and then placed in my planner with the basic info for the family. 

   

It is at this time when deposit checks are cashed and money is no longer refundable. 

I need to double check the spelling of Daniela’s last name, (that’s why it isn’t finished yet). 

This is a quick updated version of the waiting list. 

   
 

(We lost the Blenheim F from the newest Roxy litter, and the Sadie & Daisy pups are Bichons)

The “circled” names are those that are ready now. Shannon and Janice should also be circled. It’s a lot of little details to keep up with and sometimes photos are snapped before all the info is completely in place. 

With 16 available puppies and 23 (plus) on the waiting list, not everyone will get a pup this time around. 

I plan to post photos today of Abbey’s litter of 6 and get some final answers from anyone that is interested in her litter. 

I can’t wait any longer due to families wanting puppies for Christmas and/or wanting to book flights to pick up their puppy in person BEFORE Christmas. Flight prices are going to get crazy for those traveling in cabin the longer we wait. 

Stay tuned for major cuteness overload!!

And as always, let me know if you have any questions.
