The great outdoors

Oh, spring is on the way!

The weather is warming up nicely. The snow is melting and we’re actually starting to see the ground again…yippee!

Which means there are more nice areas for the puppies to explore and play in outside. We’ve been doing quite a bit of that the past few days. It’s so nice for them to really stretch their legs, run, play, explore in the fresh air and sunshine.

And they are loving it!

Currently

I just wanted to give everyone a little update on the puppies still here with us. Currently, we have our four purebred Poodle pups from Reba, Townsend from Glory and Peanut, Midnight and Cheers from Flower.

I’ve been in Spokane the last three Sundays delivering puppies to their forever families. Each week our house gets less busy, messy and a bit quieter (well, except for the very talkative Poodle boys! Do I really want to keep one?) 😉

Today, I matched Peanut with what I think will be a great home for him, and he will be close enough that I can visit sometimes. Thank you to everyone that reached out showing interest in adopting him! I appreciate all the home offers and it did make things difficult trying to narrow down the “one”.

So this weekend I will be back in Spokane for the fourth Sunday in a row handing over Townsend, Delight (the female Poodle), Peanut, Cheers, and Midnight. It will be another exciting day I’m sure and I can’t wait to meet everyone!

I have a serious interest in one of our Phantom Poodle boys. I just told them I wasn’t sure which one they would be getting until I finally make up my mind. Thankfully, they said they’d be happy with either one!

It’s been hard trying to decide between the two. I’ve been watching, observing, staring at these two boys intently for quite a while. They are so similar but have subtle differences. And since I’m hoping to keep one for our breeding program down the road, I have to think and compare every aspect of each one and determine who will be the best fit for the “job”. It’s been hard, to say the least. I love them both. ❤

So that leaves one puppy in the bunch (if the phantom adoption goes through), and that is our luscious chocolatey brown boy! I seriously can’t believe he hasn’t been snatched up yet! He’s absolutely a dreamboat! If anyone is interested, shoot me an email.

Our next puppy to be matched will be the one and only Nugget from Allie who will be ready for his forever home at the end of April. And speaking of that, I will have an announcement regarding puppy matching in the next week or so. So stay tuned for some exciting news! I’m hoping to make the making process run a bit smoother, get everyone actively involved and hopefully make the wait time shorter!

And I’m sure some of you are wondering when our next Cavapoos will be arriving. We have had a few “weddings”. 😉 Actually, there have been several girls come in season, but some of them are our teenagers so they are not part of the “wedding party”, but they are part of the chaos! The poor boys around here are losing their minds a bit when these girls are around and the boys can’t get to them without permission. 😉

Fingers crossed, next week we should be able to do our first ultrasounds of the year to confirm the first and maybe second upcoming pregnancy!

Adventures in the kitchen

Some adventures from the kitchen playground!

This might be difficult

I’m talking about Peanut. I’ve already gotten some inquiries about our sweet, little Peanut. I think it might be difficult deciding just the right situation for him because there are some great family situations out there. I will consider each one carefully.

Peanut went in for another check up on Tuesday. He is still small (3.2 lbs), but he is doing great! His size does not slow him down from diving into the dog pile of puppies to play and wrestle toys from the other puppies. He is super friendly, active, sweet and so adorable. My guess is might get to 6-7 pounds.

If you are on my Cavapoo waiting list and at all interested in him, now is the time to get in touch and let me know. I might even let him go home this weekend!

Graduation

Can you hear “Pomp and Circumstance” playing in the background? 😉 Just kidding. It wasn’t that kind of graduation, but still exciting.

Allie and her baby have graduated to a puppy playpen with a Ugodog litter box for little Nugget!

The poor puppy looks lost in there all by himself. But I gave him a stuffed animal to snuggle with when mom is out on a break.

When mom is in, she’s a snuggler. ❤️

I’m human, I make mistakes

What do you guys think of leftovers?  Like when you go to your favorite restaurant and you just can’t eat the whole meal so you ask for one of those leftover boxes, and you’re all giddy because you’ve got lunch for tomorrow. Or those Thanksgiving leftovers that linger around the house after the holiday, just waiting to be picked at. Yum!

A leftover puppy is another story. Let me explain.

I’ve always had this underlying fear as I prepare to take puppies to Spokane that I’ll take the wrong puppy, or that I’ll forget one that I’m supposed to take. Of course, this is heightened when I have more than one litter around and maybe the pups end up going home on different delivery days, so things aren’t’ all cut and dry.

Last week, I was so excited to finish getting all the last of the current Cavapoos matched (excluding, of course, Peanut, and of course Allie’s little one) and thinking, “Yeah, they’re all going home on the same day!”

I prepared the puppy bags prior to the weekend, got the puppies are ready Saturday night, loaded them up Sunday morning and off we went. I had a sheet of paper with each person’s name and which puppy they were getting. It was easier than hauling all the applications with me on my trusty clipboard.

After arriving in Spokane, checking into my meeting room, I started pottying the puppies, unloading my things and placing all the puppy bags around the table in preparation for our get-together.

Ten-thirty came and everyone started filing into the room around the table, finding their puppy’s bag and sitting down.

But there was one couple missing. So we waited. And I checked my phone for messages. But nothing. I waited a few more minutes and then decided to go ahead and get started. I wanted to call home and have hubby check the application for the notes I had made to see what I had written (duh, Jen, always read your notes before puppy delivery day!🤦‍♀️)but was busy with our puppy meeting.

Later we took all the puppies out to the truck so they could run around in the truck bed, potty, get drinks and food if they were hungry, and the wheels in my head began to spin and think about things more.

I finally had time and was able to contact hubby back home later. He took a picture of the application and texted it to me. And there it was…..

Yep, now it was all coming back to me. I had talked with Townsend’s mom earlier in the week because they were leaving for a trip and we had agreed to meet at the Wingate on March 24th.

But with all the excitement of getting puppies matched and preparing things for their delivery day, I had failed to double-check my notes on her application. I just had the thought in my brain that the whole litter was matched and going home! (She had actually been matched a few weeks prior).

So thankfully, my fear of bringing the wrong puppy for someone, or forgetting someone’s puppy had not come true, I just had a “leftover” this time. 😉 hehe (Hey, I’m human)

Thankfully, it turned into a great day of socializing for Townsend as she met all the puppy people, had crate time, romped with her littermates one last time, then hung out with me the rest of the day as we ran short errands and visited my kids for a bit.

Different views

We switched things up a bit this morning.

The usual play area that is big enough for puppies to stretch their legs, run, romp and play is my kitchen. But it does make it a bit more challenging if I’m in their cooking or washing dishes with puppies underfoot.

The weather is starting to warm up and the sun is brilliant today. So Glory’s puppies got to go outside in the covered play/potty area after breakfast.

And to make it easier to get through the kitchen (and clean the puppy room and puppy playpens), I set up two pens in the living room; one for the Flower kids and one for Reba’s Poodle puppies). So now everyone has a place to play and we can still walk through the house and get work done!

After I while we’ll rotate litters around so they all get a chance for a different “view”.

And today is also the last day for me to finish up getting puppy packets ready (unless I want to stay up half the night Saturday night 😛 ) because all of Glory’s puppies and Champagne will be going home on Sunday!
