Waiting List Update

Dear Waiting List Members,

Today, I sent an email to every person on my waiting list. Based on what I already knew, and on the information that people sent back to me, this is the current waiting list.

I have noted color/size/gender preference for those that I know. If you would like to add or change any of the info I have with your name, please let me know. If you have specified colors and genders I will generally skip over your name when I am matching puppies that don’t meet your criteria.

We currently have 23 puppies on the ground and we are not done yet. It always seems to go like this where we have a lot and then nothing. I have lots of helping hands so every puppy is getting daily attention and handling.

We are currently matching Kenzie puppies. The black/white male from the Kenzie litter has been selected, so we have the girls still available. There is interest in the blenheim girl, but there are a few names I haven’t heard from yet and want to be sure I don’t skip over anyone. If you are one of those people, I want to hear from you via email.

If your name has (pending) next to it, it means you’ve said you’re sending a deposit, but we haven’t received it yet.

I will be showing the Pearlie litter later today. They are just 1 week old. Abbey also had her puppies this past week so I will be showing them on Thursday.

Things are going to be crazy busy around here and clear communication is going to be critical for the puppy selection process.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Enjoy a photo of our bright eyed “Barley”, Accelerated Puppy from the Paisley litter. He has a home and will go there in about 3 more weeks.

Dear Waiting List Members

I just sent this email to everyone on the waiting list. I’m posting here so nobody will miss this important information.

We have new puppies! Lots of them. And we have eager people joining the waiting list each day who are ready for puppies now.

I want to reach out to all of you already on the list and ask that you be sure and subscribe to the website www.silverpawcavachons.com. By subscribing (and I know many of you have already done this), you will receive information about the current puppies and updates on the litters and availability of puppies directly into your inbox. Please be sure you have subscribed with an email that you check regularly.

With our first litter going on 6 weeks old, and all the other litters following closely with birth dates, the puppy selection and matching process is going to get intense, feel chaotic, and i need it to run smoothly. To achieve an efficient process for matching puppies, I will be communicating through the website via blog posts and not individually emailing each person until we are in the final stages of matching a puppy.

What this means practically is that I will call out to the waiting list via the blog when a litter is 5 weeks old. I’ll want you to email me with a yes to indicate if there is a pup you could be interested in or a no if you want to pass on a litter. If I don’t receive an email within 48 hours of my blog post, I’ll consider your answer to be a no.

This does not mean you are specifically choosing a puppy right then. Instead, it allows me to narrow the list down to just those families that are ready and see a pup from that particular litter that they could want.

I don’t have time to talk in detail about puppy personality until it is a puppy that you are actually in a position to be able to choose. With me working full time, this process cannot take days because we will run out of time, puppies will become older than 8 weeks old, and people will not have the proper time to line up the travel details.

I also want to let everyone know that I have lots of help this year with the daily socialization and basic care (food, water, poop) of the puppies and dogs, so my teaching job is not taking away from how we are raising the puppies.

Some of you have been on my waiting list for a long time and we have not touched base in months. This is my effort to reach out and connect again so I know how we can move forward.

Thank you for your time and please let me know that you received this email.

Kristy
