Pups Coming Soon

Hello All,

We can finally expect pups born sometime in the beginning of April and ready for homes in June. It’s been a long wait for us, our girls had a fun winter season and one or two days of snow to play in.

Here are some pictures of pups from one of our last litters, they have grown a bit but are still definitely in that oh so adorable puppy phase.

We still have some spots available for reservation , if you’re interested please email and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Chloe’s Antics

A lot of people wonder what life is like with one of our dogs, well here’s an example of a day with Chloe. I was playing fetch with Chloe and Maya and I went into the house to refill my cup of coffee. As I was walking to the back door I saw Maya hopping like a kangaroo, obviously something was wrong. I thought what the heck is going on, I opened the back door and I noticed Chloe was nowhere to be found. From what I can see there was a small bend in the chain link fence where she slid through to the neighbors yard. My heart immediately jumped out of my chest! The thought of Chloe running loose was a terrifying thought, the neighborhood cats, squirrels, and rats would have never seen that coming, or anything else small and furry. I hopped the fence and screamed for Anita, “baabbbe, Chloe’s loose, she got out!”. The only way that I can relay that feeling to you, is if you can imagine swimming in the ocean and someone yelling Shaarrrk! Anybody’s who has every tried to catch a dog knows that sometimes you just have to stand still and listen. That’s what I did and I heard a scuffling in the house, and as I approached the house,.there she was looking at me through the window from inside. I figured that someone locked her in there and that they were looking for us to come get our dog. So I sat there for about 15 minutes waiting for someone to come, after twenty minutes I realized nobody was coming and that maybe she had gotten into the house somehow and could not find her way back out. It was a feeling of an epiphany really, as I stood there looking at her thinking you sly, clever girl, I could not believe it. I walked the permitter of the house and couldn’t find how she got in. The doors were locked, all the windows were closed. It wasn’t till I walked to the very back corner and there was a whole through the foundation where the pipes go underneath the house that had enough clearance for her to squeeze through. She must of climbed under through there and pushed up the access panel and got into the house in the pursuit of a rat, so I removed the access panel and shimmied on my back underneath the house subjecting myself to spiders, rats, and dust bunnies the size of my fist all the while cursing her existance. Thank god someone sent me a squeaky toy, Thank you Irene!, to lure her to come to me, I had to pretend that I was a rat. It took me 30 minutes to retrieve her from a plan that which only took her 15 seconds to hatch. She truly amazes me every now and then.

Puppies Born

We are all adjusted and are at ease now that the babies were finally born yesterday. Roxy was in labor from 11pm Friday night to 4am Saturday, two boys and three girls were born. She needed a rest before the last two pups were born so we waited about 45 minutes before she pushed them out, that is nothing compared to how long it took for her to finally come to full term in her pregnancy. Her pregnancy lasted 68 days which is not the average of 63 that we usually see, still normal but something we hadn’t experienced until now. Pete did well to keep my nerves down, to quote him, he said we don’t need my ‘hispanic panic’ episodes right now, lol, that made me laugh. Keeping in mind how hard it was for me to be patient, I’d like to thank ya’ll for sticking it out and not hearing of an update for almost a whole week. Here are some pictures! 🙂 Roxy and puppies are all doing very well.

Update

Hi Everyone,

I know those of you who are waiting for the current litter must be at your wits end by now, sorry to keep you waiting. We are watching over Roxy like a hawk, she is doing well still but certainly taking her time, well the puppies are I should say. She is nesting now and her temperature is at the right point for labor, it will be happening very soon. As soon as there are pups we will let you know!
