Our Beautiful Chocolate Girl Has Found Her Forever Family !!

Thanks to everyone who inquired about our beautiful little Pink Ribbon Girl from Bella and Mel’s litter; I haven’t had a chance to post her placement until this evening.  She actually found a wonderful family about 20 minutes after I posted her availability!   We are so excited that she has found such a loving forever home with children to grow up with!

So in a few short weeks, all our puppies will meet their new families!!  Have a happy, safe Labor Day weekend everyone!  🙂

Beautiful Chocolate Female Puppy Available September 14th !

Because of a last minute deferral, this gorgeous chocolate fleece Australian labradoodle female puppy from our Bella litter, known as “Pink Ribbon Girl,” is now available. (Photos below).  This puppy is simply scrumptious!  Her allergy friendly coat feels just like butter and she will finish to a perfect medium size.  She is a very confidant and friendly puppy, loves to explore and is currently a shining star pupil in our Puppy Preschool Program!  She loves to snuggle, get belly rubs, and is always generous with kisses!!  She has had her first round of puppy shots, health check up by our vet, appropriate dewormings, is microchipped and will be spayed before she goes to her forever home.  She will have had a total of (8) training classes as well.  We give a 2-year health/genetic guarantee with all our puppies as well as lifetime breeder support.  She will go home with a 3-generation pedigree and a fun Puppy Gift Pak as well as samples of  heartworm medication and flea/tick prevention medication.  All our puppies are home-raised, much loved, spoiled and well-socialized!! 🙂

I am so in love with this pup as she has the “total package” to offer in a great dog!!  She adores children, is a gentle soul and will definitely make a wonderful companion to a loving family!  For more information, please call me at 717-870-0659 or e-mail me at vickityson@comcast.net.  I’d love to chat about this awesome girl!  Thanks for considering our little angel ~

Bella x Mel Puppies ~ 5 1/2 Weeks

At a little over 5 weeks, we’ve got lots going on with Bella puppies these days!  We’ve had them start training sessions with our professional puppy trainer, Mary.  As you can see from the photos, we’re busy having them learn lots of new things, pretty cool!  The pups are well on their way down the path of weaning from mama Bella.  I know she’s glad about that because more and more sharp little puppy teeth are erupting daily, yikes!! 🙂  I am so enjoying these pups as they really love being held and cuddled.  They’re totally “fun” and confidant pups too….so curious about exploring new territory with no expression of fear which is what you want in a great pup!!

Thanks for taking a peek at my “Gund” puppies!!  🙂

Annie x Vincent Puppies ~ 4 Weeks

So at 4 weeks, our crew is about ready to start puppy gruel.  I definitely think mama Annie’s ready for a break from the demands of nursing.  The pups are rockin’ and rollin’ now, loving to playfight and mouth one another, all normal stuff to do as part of a puppy’s day!  They’re such loves too……when I greet them, they’ll come running to me, all try to climb on my lap at one time, and then nibble like little piranha’s on my toes!  🙂  Our puppy trainer, Mary, will start working with the puppies next week so that’s always an exciting time.  Even though they are young, they are incredibly smart and eager to learn!

My babies were a bit squirmy for photos, so this week’s photo shoot was definitely a two-person operation!  I drafted my hubby to be the photographer and I did the holding, what a team!! 🙂  Some of the puppies had just nursed too, so their faces look wet, like we used hair gel or something on them!!! 🙂  Thanks for watching our precious puppies grow up ~

Just Plain Fun Photos!! Bella and Annie Litters August 2012

Happy Saturday all!  Just wanted to share some truly adorable kind of “miscellaneous” photos of both Bella and Annie puppies!  Bella’s pups are 4 1/2 weeks now and Annie’s are 3 week’s old today!  Our professional dog trainer/puppy trainer, Mary, started working with Bella’s puppies this week and will with Annie’s very soon.  I think, no I should say I KNOW, she’s truly in love with these pups judging from all the kisses and cuddles she gave each one during the 2 lessons this week!  Although the puppies are still young of course, we’ve learned a lot about each little personality already by moving them through various handling exercises.  We started luring them with peanut butter for teaching sitting and for exposing them to various surfaces and elevations.  Looking at their little P.B. covered faces, you can see they’ve found that taste to be nothing less than yummy!! 🙂  Mary will work with our puppies for several weeks, until they go to their forever homes actually.  She does a fantastic job with our puppies!  We’re very fortunate to have her training expertise available for our pups and their new families!

We also had a delightful little girl we know, Hannah, visit our puppies and handle them as only children will do.  We want our puppies to feel comfortable with kids and how they, in particular, relate to them……yet another great socialization exercise for the pups!  She was very gentle and respectful of them.   A shout out to our own “professional puppy socializer,” Hannah……thanks so much sweetie for a great job with our crew, I know they loved your kisses and hugs!! 🙂

So our Annie’s puppies are about 11 days younger than Bella’s and they’re starting to get more active with playing, etc., now but still spend a lot of time just snoozing the day away.  We’ll be having more visits by children to have fun socializing these puppies as well.  These pups are quite the “cuddle bugs” too!

So here are some random pics of my 16 little loves…..we hope you enjoy them!  We’ll be taking single photos of each puppy this week at some point and posting those.

Annie x Vince Puppies ~ 2 weeks

At 2 weeks old tomorrow, our puppies’ eyes are starting to open.  They’re all incredibly fast at getting to the milk bar, their fav hang-out!  Annie still needs some coaxing to leave them for a break though, so I’ll just climb in the whelping pen with her and rub her ears and back…….she just lays there all stretched out nursing her babies and looks up at me like, OMG, this feels awesome!!  This is such a quiet litter too, at least so far :),  and I think it’s just because Annie’s so attentive to her pups…..she doesn’t give them a chance to cry.  Great job mama!

The coats of these puppies are incredibly soft and they have lovely markings.  It’s hard to see in the photos right now, but many have a splash of white on at least one foot, some have a white “dot” on their heads or maybe a blaze of white on their chest, just so cute and setting each one apart in a special way.  Just love it!

So here are our puppies at the 2 week mark, hope you all enjoy them…….thanks for looking and have a great week!

Bella x Mel Puppies ~ 3 Weeks

Wow!  Here we are at 3 weeks.  I love this stage of our puppies’ development.  My 8 little munchkins have discovered how to maneuver around at warp speed!   Their eyes are now open and they’re starting to playfully paw and mouth their littermates’ noses.  They do a cute little almost “purring” sound so they’re definitely getting more vocal….it’s like they’re saying, here I am, pay attention to me! 🙂   We’ve already started housetraining using wee pads, and they’re doing a great job with it!  Bella wants to spend a little more time with us and away from the puppies between feedings now.   I think she’s more comfortable knowing her babies are doing just fine.  This week we’ll have the puppies listen to a CD that has lots of different “sounds of life” on it……children’s voices and cries, pots and pans clanging, other animal sounds and much more.  This helps them become more at ease with all kinds of sounds they’ll eventually hear all the time, another very good early-learning experience for them!

Thanks for watching our puppies grow up!  Have a great week everyone 🙂
