Solid Sable Female Sadie

I love getting updates from past puppy buyers. Here is Sadie, a solid sable female from 3 years ago!!

“We adopted a Rocky and Roxie pup three years ago in June; she was the solid sable female and the only one left in her litter. We named her Sadie, and she came to us in San Jose, via airplane, on June 15, 2015.

She is the light of our lives and we ADORE her! We hope to adopt another puppy from you in a few years when Sadie is older. We want them to be spaced apart enough that we don’t have them pass on at an old age at the same time. Sadie sleeps on our beds, sits next to us on all the couches, and is the sweetest dog we could ask for. She is smart and has learned many commands. Our daughters, now 12 and 14, are her best buddies.

All of us love the videos you post of your pups! They make our day.

Hope all is well, A & family”

As you can see the solid sable does lighten up, but they usually keep a bit of black on their ears. We are excited to be expecting another Roxy and Rocky litter this month!!

About My Days

I thought I’d let everyone see a window of my days as it relates to the dogs and the best time for communicating with me via phone or email.

Most of you probably know that I am a teacher and actually work full time teaching grades 1-4 in a small private school.  My work day usually goes from 7:30 am to 4pm and I am generally home by 4:30 to work in the puppy room.  I have help this year with all the daily dog stuff which has made things go much more smoothly and has given me more time for communicating with all of you, as well as keeping up with the videos and weekly litter updates.

From 4:30 to around 6pm I’m usually cleaning the puppy room, worming, shots, food, water, laundry, and doing the videos and occasional photos of the puppies.  After that I come in and eat supper and then finally sit down for a bit.

My evening is spent writing emails, updating the blog, hanging out with accelerated puppies, and it is the BEST time to talk with me on the phone or via email.  Sometimes I’ve been able to have email conversations with people in real time, answering questions on the spot, and coordinating travel and puppy pick up times.  It’s really nice when details can happen quickly like that.

I’ve also had some people notice that I send emails very late at night, or upload videos late at night, which works well for those on the east coast because they get to wake up to new videos!  I do work long hours, especially when we have a lot of puppies like we do right now.  Thankfully, the puppy waves come and go, and I’m expecting things to calm down a bit in March, though we are expecting new litters from Paige and Roxy this month.

I want to thank everyone again for watching this blog and for being present through this whole puppy selection process.  I NEED you to reach out and let me know your thoughts when you’re on the waiting list because it helps things move forward steadily and consistently and efficiently.  If you ever need to call, I’m usually up till 10 or 11, and if you call  in the morning, it needs to be before 7am (pacific time).

Those that already have puppies, I love to hear from you and whenever you send an update, please include a photo so I can add it all to this blog.  People love to see what the puppies look like as adults and how they have become part of your family.

I think that’s all for now.  It’s almost 9pm and maybe I’ll go to bed early tonight!  Till next time….Kristy 🙂

What’s Left

Hi again!

I’m here to keep everyone updated on the progress of puppy selection and to highlight what we still have left for puppies.  We have been working on matching the Pearlie, Abbey, Sophia, and Chantel puppies and here is what we still have left.  For Pearlie’s litter, we have the solid sable male and the blenheim male.  For Abbey’s litter we have the sable/white male.  Sophia’s litter still has the golden female and the solid sable female, and Chantel’s litter has all been matched.

I have a family that wanted to see the comparison between Pearlie’s and Sophia’s blenheim males so I have made a video of that and will be sending it their way this evening.

A word about the Sophia litter.  These are the SMALLEST puppies we have EVER had.  EVER.  The weight range at 5 1/2 weeks old is from 15 oz (Molly the sable/white) up to 1 lb 5 oz (the large golden girl and the solid sable male).  These puppies will NOT be going home at 8 weeks old and will stay at least until they are 10 weeks old.  They will not be getting their shots at the regular 7 weeks old and we are starting their worming schedule late due to how small they are.  They are spunky, playful, and while they look “dirty” due to the fact that we are giving them very softened food that they step all in, they act like normal 5 week old puppies and play and fight with each other.  I am posting the video I took of them this afternoon on their litter page.

The Abbey male is a hoot!  He gives kiss, has an always wagging tail, and he is feisty and fun and energetic.  He is about 2 lbs right now at 6.5 weeks old so he will be from 10-15 lbs as an adult.  He is brimming with personality and will do well in an active family.

The Allie puppies now have a live litter page.  You can see their first baby photos and get an idea of their markings and size difference.  They are both sable/white females and I believe there are a few people on the waiting list that might be quite interested in these two girls.

I think I’m pretty up to date with the waiting list, so aside from the blenheim boys and the possibility of the solid sable girl being chosen by people on the list, and those that I think could be interested in the Allie girls, I think the rest of the puppies are available to those on or off the list.  If you want more information about a puppy, please send us an email at  Please do not leave a comment on this blog post.

I will be reaching out to those getting Pearlie and Abbey puppies very soon as they will be ready to go home this weekend and the following week and I want to line up travel dates so I can be sure everyone goes to the vet on time.

I also need to be sure I’m pre-planning for the Chantel pups and when they will be going home so please reach out to me and let’s talk about travel if you’re getting a Chantel pup.

The Sophia pups will be ready at the earliest by April 6 when they are 10 weeks old.)

The Jesse pups, named “Poppy” and “Pappy” (no, they didn’t know they were naming their accelerated puppies almost the same name) are the sweetest girls and we are starting them on their crate training and hoping to get them out on leashes very soon (it’s still a little too muddy).

I think that is everything for now.  I’ve had a really busy week at school and things won’t let up till after March 15th.  We are being evaluated this year and it is requiring more of my time than usual.  Thank you for your patience if I don’t have a new video up each week between now and March 22nd.  Know that all the daily needs of your puppies are being taken care of as our first priority, and photos and videos will come as I’m able.

The snow is melting and spring is on the way!
