Here it is, updated and current. But we need to talk about it. Especially if your name has been on here for a long time. This post is long and detailed, but critical, so please read until the end.

That’s 40 people!

It’s wonderful to have so many names. But I need to hear from you! The first 30 names have been here for a long time and litters come and go and I keep matching puppies to new people. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the new people. But I am beginning to wonder if maybe people aren’t really waiting for a puppy anymore. Maybe they have bought one from someone else. Maybe they forgot to let me know?? Maybe they changed their mind??? Maybe they told me already and I failed to remove their name????

If you see your name here and we haven’t talked in the last month, I’d really like to hear from you.


I need to take notes on your timeline. I need to know what you are waiting for. I need to know you are still alive!

I need you to let me know when you will be ready for a puppy. It’s so hard to answer the age old question, “Do you have any puppies available?”, when a litter of six is born and there are 40 people on this waiting list, and I don’t know if any of those 40 people are going to want one of the puppies. And at the same time, the new person is ready NOW, yet I can’t tell them there is a pup because I don’t know what everyone ahead of them is going to do.

I want to be able to have clear answers.

I have 15 more puppies after the Justyne pups go home. Are they available? I don’t know. What is everyone on this list going to do? I need to hear from you!!

So, if you’re still reading this, and your name is on this list, please email me and let me know your puppy plans. It’s an easy email…

I can’t wait to update your file. I’ll be watching for your email!

And, if I don’t hear from you, I will be culling my waiting list, and leaving only those that are actively following and keeping up with this blog.

I don’t want to remove you if you want to stay, so please do reach out and send me an update in an email. (Or a text 509-936-2715). Both will work!

  1. kristy,

    I wrote you about a month ago and never heard back from you. I know I wrote at a very very stressful time on your life as I remember. About three weeks ago I had major back surgery. If you remember, I always said I could not have a dog over about 10 pounds because of my back. It got worse and worse and finally had to have it fixed. I don’t think I will ever be able to have a heavier dog still.

    canceled our trip to Japan that we were supposed to leave for next week due to the surgery. Probably would’ve had to have canceled anyway because of coronavirus. Currently hoping that we will make our annual trip to England for five weeks in late November and so hope to reschedule Japan next spring to make up for this missed trip. everything up in the air due to corona virus.

    All this is to keep you apprised as I do not know what you are having to do with me in number one position for the waitlist.

    Would you please let me know what your thoughts are? As I said, I wrote most of this earlier and did not hear back. Just wanted you to know that I was trying to contact you.

    By the way, Annie Schussler continues to be a cutie pie!

  2. Hello! Linda H is waiting to retire before getting a dog. I’m retired in September and will be serious between then and spring 2021.

  3. Hi Kristy

    As requested I am responding to your email concerning acquisition of a puppy. We still very much want one of your puppies but health concerns are delaying our ask. Rita is receiving medical treatment and will need surgery in the spring. Please leave us on the list but we will not be able to acquire a puppy until summer as our best guess at this time. Thanks for your patience.

  4. Hi, this is Kris A, I’m third from the top on your wait list. I received a puppy last Spring from another breeder, but that said we were still hoping to add another puppy to our family, but probably not until next year. I would like to stay on your wait list until then, but if that’s not possible then I understand.

  5. Hi Kristy I still want to remain on your wait list. I watch your postings regularly I know that the dark puppies are not what I want but the remainder I go back and forth with the colour and sex. I know I want to be able to travel with my puppy/dog so a small one is better I hope I will be ready by fall or possibly spring. Thanks for all the pictures and videos you do. Deb K

  6. Hi Kristy I watch your postings each week. Although not quite ready for a puppy hope to be by fall I think I would prefer a female although toying with a male but thinking a smaller one is better for me As I look at the puppy pictures all are so cute so please keep me on your wait list Have a great day
