Beautiful Bunty

Today is Bunty’s 4th birhday, Bastille Day. Her mom was Kenzie and her dad was Kingsley. She is 11 lbs. and almost entirely black with a white soul patch, a small white patch on her breast and a few white toes. What an unbelievably loving and lovable companion she has been! I waited a long time to get a small black puppy and was rewarded with Bunty. She loves everyone and wants to say hello to people and other dogs when we walk, but is easily contained if that’s not a good idea. She especially likes to chase balls (still not quite ready to “leave them” everytime) and to sleep on my lap when she gets tired. She and kitty get along famously. She sleeps with me and usually ends up under the covers before dawn (my choice — I could have trained he to sleep in a crate). She is a joy!

Love those black beauties. We only get solid black pups 1-2 times per year, so it’s definitely a more rare color. Kenzie, her mama, has been retired because she struggled during birth both times she had puppies. She is living a happy life with a family, walks, and cozy beds and treats!

Mimi Call List

Hi Everyone!

Tomorrow (Friday, April 22) is puppy matching day for the Mimi litter. There was a lot of interest in this litter and below is my call list.

I’ll begin the calls around 2pm and continue down the list until all of the puppies are matched. There are two black/white females, two black males, one black/white male, and a golden male.

I’ve listed what each person prefers so you should have a general idea of whether or not you might actually get a pup from this litter. One thing I know, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!!

Be sure you’re available to pick up your phone as I will call, and if you don’t answer, wait about 15 minutes, send a text and an email, and then try again. If you are still unavailable, I will then move on to the next person.

I really hope things will go very smoothly tomorrow and I won’t have to skip over anyone. My goal is to match all the puppies before 6pm.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I will only be discussing the puppies you selected on the litter form. We can try to FaceTime if you have an iPhone so you can see the puppies in action.

I’m looking forward to tomorrow! KP 💕😊🐶

Mimi Litter Puppy Selection

Hi Everyone!

The Mimi puppies are now five weeks old and it’s time to begin our puppy selection for this litter. Here are some key detail to keep in mind. Please read through the whole blog post. If you still have questions, send an email to:

If you leave a question in the comments here I may or may not see it. I prefer email communication so everything stays in the same place.

This litter was born on March 10 and will be ready for new homes sometime between May 5-19. I’m leaving a wider range because these babies are small and may need to be a little older before going home.

There are six puppies: 2 black/white girls, 2 black boys, 1 black/white boy, 1 golden boy. The black/white pup on the right with more white on the back is the boy.

These puppies are not eligible to go into cargo on a plane because they are too small. Owners will need to drive or fly in to Spokane to pick them up in person. If you fly in, we will bring the puppy to the airport.

We expect these puppies to be from 12-16 lbs as adults. This is always a guesstimate but mom is one of our smallest Bichons and the puppies also seem on the smaller side.

Plan your pickup so it is not on a Saturday. We are not open on Saturdays.

Here is the video of them on Facebook.

To be considered for one of these puppies you will need to fill out the following form. It asks for your basic contact info, including the phone number you want me to use when/if I call you, waiting list number, town where you live (if puppies are going to the same place), and finally a list of preferences.

As you fill out the form (link below) you need to select every puppy that you would be willing to take home. I will only contact you about puppies you’ve selected, so if you’re open to both genders and all colors, just select every puppy.

If you are not on our waiting list you may choose any number after 150 as the form requires a waiting list number. We will consider you after talking to those who reached out and are on the waiting list. We will talk to people in waiting list order.

I plan to call people next Friday, April 22nd. I should start calling around 2pm.

Thank you for your interest in this litter. They are super cute and mom has been doing a great job raising them!!

Kristy 😊💕🐶

Update on Hamilton

How exciting to get this update on Hamilton, from Maggie’s “Gone With the Wind” litter! He was an older pup when he went home, but not officially “Accelerated”, so it’s wonderful to hear that he meshed into the family so completely even as an older puppy!

He was the smallest little guy from one of our most colorful litters. Here is an update from his family!

Hi Kristy,

I’ve been meaning to send this email for some time, so this is long overdue.

We can’t tell you enough how much we LOVE our Hamilton! He has been a joy to us and the people who come into our home.

Hamilton came to us at the right time…on October 22, 2012 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and three days later we picked Hamilton up at the airport. While there was a brief moment of questioning if we should still be getting a dog, I said absolutely; he has given us something else to focus on, to care for, to play with, to laugh with.

It’s amazing how smart, calm, and easy going he is. We just returned from vacation and while we were gone we boarded him at our vets office (which also happens to be our friend and neighbor), Hamilton came home and fell right back into his routine without missing a beat!

All our neighbors love this little guy, and some have said when it’s time for them to get a dog they want one just like Hamilton!

Thank you for giving us such a fabulous breed, we love our Hamilton.

Black Cavachons

The Beauty of a Black Cavachon! The third rarest color, behind the Tri and Black & Tan is the Black Cavachon. With hair that looks almost velvet like, the Black Cavachons truly do have a beauty all their own!



We currently have 3 beautiful black Cavachon puppies in the Lilly litter. They will be small. Please remember how beautiful they can be!

Thank you Jodie for these amazing pictures of Mindy!

Sadie & Pookie Bear Go To The Groomers


Last November, Lilly & Pujo had a litter of Cavachon puppies.  “Sadie” was one of those puppies.  We have had her here, all this time, waiting for her to get a forever home.  I am happy to announce that she will be going home to Oregon on Sept. 11th! 

In preparation for her new home, Sadie needed a haircut!  The Cavachon coat is one that DOES need grooming, and Sadie had not been groomed at all, except for a bath here and there.  As a result, her coat was thick, wooly, and had some mats, so it was time for Sadie to see the groomers.

Here are a few “before” pictures of Sadie!


On this day, she had a “top-knot”, but not the cute kind with a bow on her head!  This was just a spontaneous “clump”! 


This is Sadie & Pookie Bear (the little guy) with Princess.  They had so much fun playing together!



Sadie, looking like a dog in a winter coat!


And this is Sadie after her haircut!  She looked so different, that when I walked into the groomers to pick her up, I saw Pookie and 2 small black dogs, and didn’t even recognize her!  One of those “small” dogs was Sadie!!



I just knew she would be grey underneath!


She’s so cute in her bows!


She still has the white patch on her chest, and a bit on her chin!


Her coat is so velvety.  It was like a carpet when vacuumed one direction, it’s one color, and then when going the other direction, the color changes. 


Sadie looks so elegant here with her paws crossed!

I’m sure that as her hair grows out again, it will get darker.  Somehow coats do that.  You’ll see with Pookie Bear’s coat below, how when it’s really short, it looks really light, but as it grows in, it gets darker again. 


Another view of the variations in color!


She is a happy girl and ready to meet her new parents!


Now, here is a picture of Pookie Bear, “before”.  We had groomed him ourselves not too long ago, so he looked pretty good already when he went to the groomers.  Notice how his coat is a nice honey brown color here.


He is such a cute boy, and small, and looking for a forever home! 


Here he is after going to the groomers! 


He looks almost cream-colored.  But I know from experience, that as his coat grows, that honey color will come back.  Pookie has been groomed several times professionally, and the color always comes back on his coat!


He’s so cute in his bandana!


He is a sweet boy, crate trained, rides in the car without getting sick, and loves going for walks!



His face actually has a bit of grey/black on it.  You can really see it in the “before” photo of him!


He loved being at the park getting his picture taken!
