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 🙂
