Admin Details and Updates

This post is long, but very important.

This morning I called everyone that was interested in a Dutchess or Missy pup and have matched 4out of 12 puppies so far. We have one golden boy and two golden girls still available from the Dutchess litter, and five girls available from the Missy litter: one sable/white, two golden, and two blenheim. These puppies are ready to go home this coming weekend and they are so happy and cute. I’ll post pictures later today when I have some help holding them!

In other news, I have been actively trying to clean up my waiting list. I have removed over 30 names of people that either have already found a puppy or they have decided not to get a puppy. It has taken a lot of time to do this and there are still many people I have not been able to reach.

I usually don’t post full names on my website but I am going to share my list of those I still need to contact. If your name is below, please reach out via email (silverpawcavachons@gmail.com) or text (509-936-2715) or call me and let me know what your plans are moving forward.

This is my last effort to reach people. I am hopeful that I will hear from many of you on this list below. On July 31, I will be doing the final cleanup of the waiting list and names will be removed if I have not heard from you by that date.

If your name is NOT on this list below, we have spoken this summer and you should see a * by your name on the waiting list. If you have any questions, please give me a call. 509-936-2715.

Here are the names of those I have not been able to reach:

Chris & Ron Smith
Daryl & Kathy B
Debra Paxton
Chris Dickman
Sierra Adibi
David Katie G
Jen F
Judy D
Brook McIntire
Robin Maisel
Jerilyn Haney
Helen Gret Torres
Malia Perecki
Karina Dsouza
Maryanne Moreno Lorenz
Anne Marie Bammert
Brittany Lynn Hill
Mamie Bass
Sabrina Hill
Gwen Ahart

Back in the day, I only had the online waiting list and I only used the first initial of the last name. This has proven to be a very bad idea as I can’t even find the full names of Daryl & Kathy, David & Katie, Jen, and Judy. I really hope to hear from these 20 families ASAP. If we have spoken and I have wrongly placed your name on this ‘missing’ list above, please accept my apologies and reach out and let me know.

I think things got so crazy during and after Covid with puppy demand that I just wasn’t able to keep up with everything on the administrative end of things. As of now, things are under control and I just have these final 20 families to hear from.

Thanks for your help on all of this. I want my waiting list to actually reflect the right number of people interested in a puppy. It seems daunting when you’re new and see over 100 names on a list. The truth is, I have been matching puppies to new people consistently for the past 18 months and have mostly been working from the bottom of the waiting list as those have been the people ready to get a puppy. I do still follow the list faithfully, and I feel good knowing that I’ve spoken to the majority of you this summer.

Be watching for the updated pictures of the Missy litter and reach out when you’re ready to get a puppy. Thanks everyone!

Email List vs Waiting List

There is some confusion about the waiting list vs the email list. Let me explain:

The waiting list is the list of people that are serious about getting a puppy in the near or distant future. They have paid a fee to be on this list so they are prioritized in order when it’s time to choose a puppy. This list is on the sidebar of the website when you’re on a computer and at the bottom of the website when on a phone. There are currently 80 names on this list with a good chance that the number will go down once I’ve spoken with everyone (as mentioned in a previous post, I’m cleaning up my waiting list).

On the right sidebar of the website on a computer (teal section)
At the bottom of the website after scrolling down, down, down, when on a phone.

Then there is an email list. When on the website you are able to “subscribe” to the blog. This means you have typed in your email and every time I post on the blog, the blog post goes directly to your email. Some of you asked to be taken off this list. You can actually do that yourself. If you look at the very bottom of your email, you will see an option to unsubscribe. Simply click that link and follow the steps given.

I hope that clears things up. Reach out if you have questions and be sure you are subscribed to the website/blog if you don’t want to miss any details about what is happening at Silver Paw Cavachons!!

BIG Cavachons

Look what I found in my drafts folder! Time to finally publish it!!

So many people want small dogs, and they are definitely adorable, but I have to admit, I LOVE the BIG ones!

I asked my owners to send me pictures of their big Cavachons, those that grew to 18 lbs or more.

I think these dogs are simply regal and gorgeous!!

Hi Kristy,

Attached is a picture of Nikki from Ruby and Mosely’s June 2009 litter. She weighs 25 pounds and was the biggest of six in the litter. I love her size because she’s big enough that she can’t get lost under my feet. She’s still a hundred laughs a day and has the sweetest personality. Everybody simply loves her and she them.

Major Waiting List Cleanup

Hi Everyone!

If you’re on our waiting list, this post is especially for you!

We have over 100 names on the list yet I usually only hear from and match puppies to the newest people. This summer I’m cleaning up my list.

I have been texting and emailing many of you on the list (I’m not all the way through yet). I’m finding that a bunch of you have found puppies somewhere else. I’m so happy for you! If you could kindly respond to my text or email and let me know what your plans are moving forward, that will help me a lot!

When brand new people see a waiting list so long, it’s discouraging and they pass me by. If my waiting list is filled with names of people that already have a pup or are no longer interested, it sends a false message.

So I’d like my list to ONLY have people that are still wanting to actually get a puppy!! I’ve emailed or texted through Maria P. I’ll continue to reach out until the very last name.

It will help me a lot if you simply text me your plans. It will save me a lot of time!! be sure to give me your full name in the text. Just a phone number won’t tell me who you are.

I’d like this project completed this week if possible. Thanks so much for your help.

Also, we have two puppies still from the Scarlett litter, the solid sable male and the light blenheim female.

And two more litters ready mid July with possible delivery to northern CA (Sacramento airport).

It’s a busy summer!!

Candid Photos of the Scarlett Litter

Hi Everyone!

The Scarlett puppies are ready to go home. They are 11 weeks old and have their second shot. They are all going to be fabulous dogs and I’m excited to be already talking to six families about matching them.

I’ll let everyone know which one is still available after I talk to everyone today!

There are a bunch of new videos highlighting each puppy on our Facebook page. Be sure to check those out and I will be giving you a call later today. Here is my list!

Enjoy all the photos!

Update on Scarlett Litter

Hi Everyone!

I’ve had some interest in the Scarlett puppies though none have been matched quite yet.

I’ll be sending photos of the black pup, blenheim female, and the golden male to prospective families tomorrow. We still have the golden cream male, solid sable male, large blenheim male, and the light blenheim female available.

I wanted to let everyone know that since these puppies are a bit older and have had two shots, we are willing to ship them if there is an available flight with Alaska Airlines. With steep airline prices right now for human travelers, this might be a good option for those that are too far to drive.

Please reach out if you’re interested in a puppy from Scarlett’s litter. You do not need to be on the waiting list and puppies are ready to go home early next week.

Scarlett & Big Boy Litter Selection

Hi Everyone!

School is out, I’m home, and it’s time to talk about puppies!

The Scarlett litter has grown up and I’ve done a terrible job talking about them. We’ve had a few bumps in the road the past month (with other litters) but as a result, decided to keep the Scarlett litter until they had two shots before going home. They were also a little older when they got their first shot, so finally, at 10.5 weeks old, they are finally ready to go home!!

Here’s a look at their cute faces and a side view of their bodies.

These are large puppies and may be considered Megachon Cavachons with adult weights ranging from 18-30 lbs. they are getting their second booster shot on Thursday and they will also be seeing the vet on Thursday. They will be ready to go home Friday.

I have a small list of people that I will be calling first.

Debbie N, James S, Tina W, and Kristina S.

Anyone else interested in these puppies should fill out this Google form. I will be calling people starting Wednesday.

Available Puppies

We have two boys from the Olivia litter still available. They are ready this weekend-starting Sunday! I’ve been away in CA so I haven’t talked about them, but I’m back now and they are ready to go! Both are golden males.

The light golden male is spunky and fun! He is inquisitive and loves people and exploring things!

The large golden male is like a big love bug! He’s affectionate, yet playful, with all the fun that comes with having a puppy!

These boys are up to date on their worming and vaccinations.
