We have officially matched the Penny puppies and I’ve made a video explaining how all the details went down! It’s a process of elimination often times and one that reveals itself only as it happens. After it’s done, it’s a lot easier to explain the basic matching process.
I’m hoping this video will offer some clarity in how the process works. It’s the best way I know to keep the order intact, yet not be waiting to hear back from people that are not ready.
You’ll see that those further down on the waiting list did not get a pup this time around, but in general, that is to be expected. You’ll also see that the lady who is #64 on the waiting list DID get a pup, so it never hurts to put your name out there because you never know what is going to happen!
Let me know if you have any questions. And again, please communicate with me via email unless I specifically establish a text message with you. Thank you!
Not with any of you. I’m frustrated with my internet.
I live in the country. It’s SLOW. I drove to my school today to get the puppy videos from yesterday uploaded. The last one wouldn’t load.
It still won’t load. It’s full of explanations about the Penny list. Maybe it will show up later today, but it won’t be linked from here. Instead, here is a picture.
We had quite a bit of interest. I’ve now taken the Top nine names and made a new sub list (small list on the right). The nine names will be the people I focus on for these puppies. If I’ve missed your name, you’re on the waiting list in the top 50 AND you already emailed me, reach out again so I can get you added.
I hope to upload 3 videos a day this week. Here are the first three from Monday. Please watch them all. There’s a lot of info shared.
I apologize about the watermark. Sadly, dishonest people are making fake websites, stealing pictures from reputable breeders, and “selling” those puppies to innocent families. I’m doing my best to keep that from happening with my puppies.
Let me know via email if you have any questions. These puppies are only available (right now) to the nine names above.
We will not be doing puppy selection today for Penny’s litter, but it will happen on Friday. I have video to upload and it was too slow here last night. Thanks for your patience. More will be explained in the videos. I have three videos from yesterday and plan to do three each day this week. I also plan to update the other litters as well. Stay tuned!
After posting about Casper, I took several days off from responding to emails. Today, I compiled all the inquiries for him and there were 23 emails/messages/FB messages. I’m working through the names. I’m not surprised at this huge interest, and I’m sorry I don’t have 25 little Caspers looking for homes!
If you don’t hear from me via email, I will post here when he has found his home. I know you ALL would be amazing choices.
I am also extremely behind on responding to regular emails. I hate to have to tell everyone our waiting list is CLOSED. We have over 100 names and just 10 puppies right now. I don’t feel right taking any more money when it could be 1-2 years before we would have a pup for you. Please subscribe to the website to be notified when the waiting list opens up again. Thank you!
We interrupt our Cavachon program to bring you a quick snapshot of “Casper”. He is a TINY purebred Cavalier King Charles Spaniel male puppy in the black/tan color. I expect his adult weight to be around 8-10lbs.
He is the runt. He eats canned food (can’t get him to eat dry food), he is spunky, energetic, and always ready to DO something.
He is ready for his new home. Here is a quick video of him.
I am making him available today to those on my waiting list. Tomorrow I will respond in order to the emails that have come in about him.
He is ready to go. Feel free to email us at email@example.com for more info.
1. Don’t wait a whole week to respond to emails. There were over 30 inquiries.
2. Don’t post a new litter blog post before responding and getting caught up with emails.
3. Don’t blindly copy and paste the WRONG email to all the new people.
I just did all 3 of those things. I’m going to do a public apology here because a TON of you receive condolences about a lost dog instead of my normal first email response. Instead of individually emailing over 30 people with an apology, I’m just doing it here.
Please do email me again if you’d like info on our puppies!!
Accelerated training begins ($200/week extra charge): July 30, 2020
First look at the babies…
From left to right: Blenheim M, Sable/White M, Solid Sable F, Blenheim F, Solid Sable F.
Right now you are simply evaluating timeline and color/gender availability. We will talk about the puppies in more detail as they grow up.
I am taking names for this litter list from those on the main waiting list. If you have already told me you were interested in this litter, you need to send me a new email as I did not have my page made yet for this litter, but now I am ready. Please send your name via email, not a comment on the blog, Fb message, or IG message. C
Communication using those other methods has the potential to get lost in the shuffle and it’s very difficult for me to manage communication coming from 4 different locations.
Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org. We will accept names for this litter until they are 5 weeks old.
Thank you for reaching out to us! These babies are doing well!
Just a teaser to let you know we have a newborn litter as of last Thursday. Puppies are doing very well and everyone is happy.
Waiting for Kenzie to deliver any day and then maybe one other mom due in June.
I’ll post photos soon. I’ll say we have both boys and girls and three different color choices (blenheim, sable/white, solid sable). I would have attached a photo here, but my phone was dead.
This post is also to serve as an encouragement to those deep on the list. Slowly, but surely, litters will be born and will go home, and your name will continue to rise on the list. Your day will come! Patience!
We also sent home two retired adults and a third will be going home soon.
It sounds like some of you are having some challenges watching the Puppy Training course. I went back through and took some screen shots because yes, it’s not super user friendly to find it on the website. Hopefully these screenshots will help. This is on my iPhone. I don’t know what it looks like on the actual computer.
Whew! I’m sorry it’s so complicated. Maybe there is an easier way, but this is the best I know for now.
This class will not be here free forever. Take advantage of it now. They may come out with an edited DVD version sometime in the future, but this is it for now.
Remember, this course was filmed live and has not been edited. It’s long. But I think there are a lot of good tips to learn.
My email is buzzing now with response to the news of Penny’s litter. I’ve had some good email conversations and I want to share one that I think could be especially helpful for many others. Here are screen shots of our email thread.
So, I wanted to share this to emphasize again that it’s very difficult for me to know how long things will take and whether there are puppies available because there are so many moving parts to all of this. If Cara wants a girl, but they’re both selected, then suddenly we’re talking to Joey at #55 yet he is the 4th person I’m talking to on the Litter List. And at this point, nobody should get their heart set on anything because it’s only been a few hours since I shared the first photos and likely there will be several others that will emerge from the woodwork of the waiting list.
Hopefully this gives some insider info into the complexity of puppy selection, yet this method truly works beautifully to keep everyone in order.
