New Numbers and Updates

Hi Everyone!

Please check the waiting list as some of your numbers may have changed. I have removed those that were matched to the Mimi litter and another couple families that found a puppy elsewhere.

I plan to post the Maddie puppies tomorrow (four solid sable males) and get the process started for that litter. There will be a Google form that you will need to fill out if you’d like to be considered for one of her puppies. They will be ready in about three weeks. I will post all the details tomorrow for her litter.

I’d also like to be sure that everyone understands that I need you to follow this blog, read all the posts as they happen, in order to not miss any of the information. I am not able to keep a running spreadsheet of who wants what color, size, gender, and all the specific timelines for over 100 families, so I depend on each of you to reach out to me when you see a litter that has a puppy you may want.

I know I’ve said this before but I want to thank all of you who have been following along and staying current with everything that is happening. For now, the Maddie pups are the only pups that we have that are not matched so we will be having a fairly quiet March. Scarlett did get bred so we are hoping to welcome a litter of F1b puppies at the end of March.

For those that have been following the bit that I’ve shared about my mom, she is with me now so I won’t have to be traveling back and forth to California until it’s time for her to go back home. She is gaining strength, going to Physical Therapy, and generally improving each day. Thank you to all of you that sent heartfelt notes. I really felt the love and care coming from all of you!

The Mimi List

Hi Everyone!

The Mimi litter list is closed and it’s time to show you who I will be calling next week.

I’ve divided the list into groups of five. My guess is that I may get down to #10, but chances are the puppies will be matched even before that.

Let’s have some fun guessing how this could shake out. Do remember that nobody is locked into anything and people do change their minds and final decisions haven’t been made yet.

But if we go strictly by what everyone has indicated in their preferences, it might look something like this…

Deborah-B/W male

Renee-Blaze golden girl

MargieScott-Other golden girl

Kathleen-Blenheim male

Howard, Lily, Libby-pass because all the girls are already selected

Krista-Other blenheim male

Now things rarely go this smoothly, but this should give everyone an inside glance at what could happen. This also helps you know whether you’ll potentially get a call or not.

On puppy matching day I’ll call in this list order until I’ve matched all the puppies. Then I will post a new blog post congratulating everyone. I will not call the rest of the list so do keep checking the blog for my update.

Let’s do puppy selection Tuesday evening starting at 6pm. Does that work for everyone? I can do FaceTime with those that have an iPhone.

Please let me know if that doesn’t work for you. It’s very important that you’re able to take a call that evening as I don’t want to skip over anyone.

The puppies will be ready to go home after February 13. We’d like them to go by the 19th at the latest.

Please email if you have questions and I want to thank everyone who reached out and filled out the litter form. My guess is that this time we probably won’t get too far down the list, but honestly, you just never know!


Mimi Litter Selection

Just a quick reminder that today, until 8pm is the last chance to get your name on the litter list for Mimi’s litter. This is for those already on our main waiting list.

Here is the link to the form.

We will begin puppy selection next week when I’m back from CA. I’ll post the order of selection tonight once I close the form. Currently, 22 people have responded for the 5 puppies.

Remember that after Mimi’s litter, we have four solid sable males from Maddie’s litter.

“Bailey,”large male from Penny, went home yesterday. The story is on my Instagram and Facebook pages. Here he is with his new family! The mural gave the illusion of mouse ears!! This is the second dog for the S family. They have a black/white dog, “Booker,” that they bought from us 12 years ago. He’s still going strong and I can’t wait to hear when he decides to be good friends with his new little brother. It can often take a couple weeks before the existing dog warms up to the new puppy!!

Thanks to everyone for following along!
