Family reunion

I love how these puppies bring people together and start new friendships! ❤

“Hi Jennifer,

Just wanted to give you a quick update on Sangria, now Pebbles! It’s been a little over a week since we picked her up and she is adjusting so well. She is so friendly and very smart. She knew how to play fetch on the 2nd day 🙂  We are so grateful for the loving home you raised her in and it’s pretty clear she came to us as a happy pup!

In more fun news, we had a play date with her sister Apple (now Soup) in Seattle today. They were TOO cute together. They played so well and we like to think they remember each other. 3 hours of full playtime later, and they both passed out for hours lol. Thought you might like to see some of the adorable pics and video!

Thank you thank you!!!

Thanks to L.Norr for the update, pictures, and videos!

Update!

I received this nice update in my inbox the other day . These just make my day! 😀

“Hi Jennifer!  It’s been a wonderful year since we brought Pez aka ‘Greg’ home.  He is such a perfect combination of loving, playful, gentle, curious and cuddly.  Sometimes it’s comical how ungraceful/clumsy he can be and how he thinks he’s part cat trying to balance in strange places.  He is the happiest of greeters to come home to and the best lap warmer to relax with.  He loves playing in his yard, chasing birds, and has been doing a lot of camping with us. He’s all grown up, has had several hairdos and has filled out to a whopping 27 lbs! Lol  Thank you for bringing him into the world and letting him be part of ours!

Cheers”

I’m pretty sure this is our biggest Cavapoo (at least that I know of )! They included some puppy and adult pictures. He was Greg (our Brady Bunch-themed litter) from Rosie and Sundae’s April 2017 litter.

Farm Dog

Hi, my name is Sage! I am an eleven-week-old Cavapoo puppy. (If you don’t know what that is, it means my mom is a Poodle and my dad is a Cavapoo. Which makes me very special. <3) My name used to be Rainy, but my human mom changed it. I think she calls me Sage because I’m such a wise puppy. Or maybe it’s because of my color. Or maybe she just liked that name. I don’t know, but I just know it’s my name!

My dog mom’s name is Lucy and my dog dad’s name is Dickens. I have three brothers that went to live with their forever families, but human mom decided I needed to stay with her.

I love living on the farm! I have lots of friends to play with and lots of things to see and do!

I have to help mom feed the horses this dried grass stuff she calls “hay”. I’m glad I don’t have to eat that!

And my human mom has lots of these funny birds she calls “chickens” that we have to feed and water every day. And then, you know what?! These funny birds give us these yummy egg-things that I get to eat sometimes. They’re scrumptious!

And just like human farm kids, I get to learn to drive so I can help on the farm. Don’t worry, I was sitting in mom’s lap.

We drove over to the field where my human dad was working to give him something cold to drink. He was making little square things of that dried grass stuff for the horses. They eat a lot of it!

My mom works in the garden almost every day. Some days I help her. See me coming fast when she called me!

Sometimes I like to taste the plants. But my mom doesn’t like it. But I thought the garden was so we had stuff to eat?

Okay, mom. I’ll be good and not eat the pepper plant.

See, I was helping while she watered the berries. I have a mud beard now!

And sometimes I have to “protect” her from those large horse-creatures. They are soooo big!

I love living on the farm! ❤️

Ninety-six toenails

That’s correct. Yesterday I trimmed ninety-six teeny tiny toenails.

The puppies at this stage are just sleeping and eating mostly. Mom takes care of keeping them clean and I take care of mom.

At this age, I’m still weighing the puppies each day. Mom gets her bed changed and of course, always must have fresh water and all the puppy food she wants. Both are getting their “mom” supplements too (Oxy Momma; nursing & recovery formula, NuVet; our wonderful human-grade vitamin/mineral/antioxidant, immune system supporter, and Pet-Cal; a calcium supplement for the nursing mom’s needs).

And since Flower’s litter are now a week old, it was time for their first toenail trims. Those little things can be needle sharp and I’m sure can get uncomfortable for mom’s sensitive skin if we don’t keep the nails trimmed.

I went ahead and trimmed Treasure’s two also since they are such big, robust pups.

Seriously, look at the size difference!

Cavaliers do tend to be more solidly built dogs than Poodles which makes me think that’s why their pups (sometimes) seem to be bigger than the Poodle moms’ pups (at least at birth). Plus Treasure only had two pups getting all the prenatal nourishment so they had a bit of an advantage.

Check these weights out from yesterday:

Kitty (purple collar) 6.9 ounces

Festus (red collar)    5.8 ounces

Marshall (green collar) 7.3 ounces

Doc (blue collar) 6.8 ounces

And Treasures’ two (who remember, are three days younger)

Hoover (male) 1 lb 1 ounce!!!

Kirby (female) 15 ounces.

I love what I do! ❤️

Happy Father’s Day

Wishing all you human (and dog) dads a special Father’s Day!

And a little tribute to our four special stud muffins, without whom we wouldn’t be able to do what we do! ❤️

Dickens, Clancy, Noah & Sundae!

Two Treasures

No, I’m not talking about two precious gemstones. I’m talking about two different versions of one dog, Treasure!

I seriously saw it with my own eyes the other day and it was crazy!

As some of you know by my comments and individual dog descriptions, Treasure is a bubbly, silly, social butterfly.

Well, when she went into labor she became an absolute basket-case! I was seriously wondering about her. She was like a hormonal, hysterical woman in labor and delivery clinging to her husband; “talking” incessantly, whining, complaining and out of control. (now, before all the ladies start bashing me, most of us women are not like the above-mentioned woman, but you gals know, there are some pregnant women that just get a little unglued during delivery.) I was starting to think she shouldn’t be a mother and would she take care of these babies? (I didn’t remember her being this way for her other litter). She was clingy and all she wanted was to crawl in my lap. (Um..no, thanks Treasure. The birthing process is too messy for that.)

Then the babies were delivered.

And then the maternal, calm, sweet, nurturing Treasure showed up. And I was relieved, to say the least.

Whew, she obviously just responds to the labor process in a bit more of a dramatic fashion than most dogs.

Thankfully, she is a wonderful mother! ❤️

I wish her litter was bigger for all those anxiously waiting for puppies, but thankfully the puppies are big, fat and healthy!

She only had two, but they came out huge, and have just continued to gain weight steadily. In fact, I’ve already given the little butterballs names.

The boy will be Hoover and the girl will be Kirby. 😉
