Some Changes in Puppy Selection

Hi Everyone!

If you been following along on FB and the blog you will have heard some talk about us changing up how we do puppy selection around here. I’m excited to try something new and I want to be sure everyone understands how everything works!
Puppy selection always seems to be quite frustrating for buyers and for me as well, so we are going to try to streamline the process. 
I will continue to post pictures and videos of each litter so people can see all the colors, genders, and personalities. I’ll do my best to get the puppies in front of you so you can see exactly what is available. 
If you see a puppy in a litter that you like, let us know ASAP!!  We want a list of names for each litter and we want it to be filled up and overflowing. We will take names all the way up to “Puppy Matching Day”.  
What is puppy matching day?  Each litter will have an assigned day (probably a Sunday) where we match all the puppies from that litter. That day will be dedicated to talking with every family interested in the particular litter. 
What I need from you…be available to talk on the phone that day if you are wanting a puppy from the litter. 
Let’s run through an example. Let’s say a litter has 4 puppies. Let’s also say I have 6 people on my waiting list that have said they are interested in that litter.  When the big day arrives, I will place those 6 names in waiting list order. I will begin calling each family in waiting list order. 
To continue with the example, I begin by calling family A. They are excited because they have first choice of the puppies and they take their first choice pup!  DONE!  That was easy and quick. I will take care of learning delivery details, timelines, etc, and wrap up most if not all details regarding getting that puppy home. 
Now on to family B. I call them. They also had their eye on the same puppy that family A just took, but they had a second choice and are happy to be matched with another puppy. DONE!  I get the details, set up delivery, and we are good to go!
Now on to family C. I call and am unable to reach anybody. This moment is critical!!  Please read this carefully because this is one of the biggest changes in this process. If I am unable to reach you on puppy matching day, I AM MOVING DOWN MY LIST TO THE NEXT NAME. Yes, you read that correctly, if nobody answers my call, I am going to the next person. 
So now I’m calling family D. They only wanted the puppy that family B took, so they decided to wait for a different litter. 
At this point, I’ll try family C again. Hopefully they pick up and we can move forward with matching a puppy to their family. If not, I will continue and now call family E. 
Family E is ecstatic that they even got called since there were only 4 puppies and they were family #5 on the list. They are open to taking any available puppy and we match another puppy to them. 
At this point, I call family C again and they answer. Thankfully they are flexible and they are matched with the last puppy in the litter. 
And the puppy matching day is complete!
Family F doesn’t get a call because all the puppies are matched, but they had been refreshing their web page as they followed along and saw the process unfold on our blog. 
As you can see, in the past, waiting for “family C” to connect, make a decision, or whatever, could take days and sometimes weeks, which resulted in frustration all around. 
I’m hoping that by dedicating one day to matching each litter will help this process go much more quickly and smoothly. 
Please let me know if you have any questions!
We have two names so far for Scarlett’s litter (and 8 puppies, so 6 still available). We are taking names!  I will post photos of her puppies, release date, and any other details in the next blog post. 
And one final thing…if you are on our waiting list but found a puppy somewhere else, please let us know that you need to be removed. Thank you!!

Two Jesse Pups Go Home

Hi Everyone!

It has begun. The Jesse pups are heading home. Today, the blenheim girl with the most color went home and the round face girl went home! I’m excited for them to begin their new lives!

Most color girl! Congratulations!

Round face girl! Congratulations!

The sable/white boy goes home on Monday and the last blenheim girl with the kiss spot goes home next weekend. The final puppy, our little sable/white pirate girl is going to stick around for our accelerated program, and she will go home at 13 weeks old.

This will complete the Jesse litter, which means all of them have been matched to their forever homes.

Next we will move forward with the Scarlett litter. We are going to do things a little differently for matching the Scarlett puppies. Stay tuned for a blog post with ALL the details! If you’d like to be considered for any Scarlett puppy, please let me know. Right now, I believe I have just three names for eight puppies which means there are five still available!

More to come on Scarlett’s litter as well as pictures and new video! Have a fabulous weekend!

Emails, FB Messages, Comments on the Blog

Wow!! My inboxes were overflowing last night and this morning. I did my best to respond to everyone. If you reached out but didn’t hear back from me, please reach out again.

Also, please reach out via email or phone ONLY!! I find it very difficult to navigate and answer all the questions when they’re coming from so many directions. It’s also nearly impossible to keep any sense of order when I’m working off of several lists and sources. Please just send an email or call!! If you reach out on FB, I will likely respond but then ask you to continue the conversation via email.

Right now, I have all of the girls pending. I’ll post an update of availability once I hear back from everyone that emailed me yesterday and early this morning.

For those that aren’t ready now, or didn’t get a Jesse pup, we have two more litters on the ground. Scarlett has 8 puppies and Roxy has 3 puppies. This means there are still 11 more puppies to match in the next few weeks.

I’ll post a video of the Scarlett pups sometime today on FB and I’ll link it here in the blog as well.

Thanks for your patience as I navigate through all the emails, messages, and comments. The girls are pending now to:

Amy P sable/white girl

Mary C wide face girl

Nathan R Kiss spot girl

Amanda T most colorful girl

If you are one of the names above, let’s talk via phone conversation today after 3pm. We can also chat via email anytime today. I need decisions quickly as there are people behind you hoping they may still have a chance at a Jesse pup.

Available Jesse Puppies

Jesse pups, ready for puppy selection. This litter is literally wide open. The only pup matched is the sable and white male. All the rest are available girls. They will be ready to go home Friday, December 13th, which is one and a half weeks from now. Anyone is welcome to contact us about these pups.

Here is a video and I’m planning to load a few more to FB this evening.

https://www.facebook.com/42775496585/posts/10156786898351586?sfns=mo

Here is the litter list. Sometimes, plans change for people and that seems to be what happened here. Nobody is waiting for any of the females. This is a rare chance to slip in and snag a pup without waiting.

I’m looking forward to talking with each of you about these pups. Adult size should be a solid 15-20lbs.

Blenheim female with the most color. Very outgoing and playful. Energetic!

Blenheim female. Playful, sweet, and cute!

Blenheim female with the wider face. Super sweet and loving!

Sable & White female, our little pirate with one patch on her eye. We don’t often get asymmetrical markings on the face, so she is a rare beauty!

Sable & White male. He is already matched to his forever family. Playful, tail wagging, ready to embrace life!

Please contact us via email, silverpawcavachons@gmail.com, regarding these pups. We will not respond to inquiries left here in the comments. We need communication to all be in the same place. Thank you!

Updates

Hi Everyone!

This is a super quick post to show you what has been happening here. I thought the puppy and I had that “owner looks like their dog” vibe going on here, but she’s no longer my puppy.

“Dixie”, from Allie’s (F1) litter, finally went home today to Texas. She is going to be an emotional support animal and I know she will do the job well!!

Jesse’s (F1) puppies are getting so cute. They are 4 weeks old and starting to really play with one another. I’ll load a video of them on our Facebook page.

Jesse’s puppies are ready for puppy selection. These are the three blenheim girls above.

Sable/white girl on the left and boy on the right!

We are ready to match the Jesse pups.

Scarlett’s (F1b) puppies are growing. She had eight of them on November 5th.

4 Boys

4 Girls

We are taking names from those interested in the Scarlett pups.

Roxy had her babies Wednesday.

Solid sable male, female, and golden female.

Their faces are too sweet!!

We also have the lovely Kaya looking for a forever home.

And a tiny, tiny Bichon male puppy that will be ready in 2 weeks. Pictures still to come of the Bichons.

Things are always busy here. We have a bunch of new puppies, a long waiting list, and I hope I will hear from many of you soon. Remember, if you see any puppy you like, please let me know and I’ll pencil in your name for that pup.

Let the puppy selection fun begin!!!

Kaya

Hi Everyone!

We have some available Bichon Frise dogs and puppies and I want to start the conversation in hopes that we can find homes for these wonderful little white dogs!

I’m going to begin with Kaya. She is four years old and we would like to find her a quiet, forever pet home. She is a nervous girl that will need someone who is willing to work with her. She will also need some potty training.

If you’d like more information about Kaya, please send an email to silverpawcavachons@gmail.com.

Please send all communication via email. I will not be responding to comments left on the blog. Thank you. 🐶
