Welcome!

Now that I’ve finally gotten through all that applications (please if you submitted one and did not hear from me, shoot me an email. Or if you did hear from me, submitted your fee and haven’t heard from me shoot me an email. It’s better to keep all our communication in one place instead of replying to this blog)….I just want to say WELCOME! And THANK YOU to everyone that submitted an application and decided to follow through with the application fee and get on our list even though you know there will be a wait. But I believe each person will get just the right pup at the right time. We think they’re worth the wait! ❤️

Just a reminder to sign up for email notifications here if you haven’t already. Just hit the “FOLLOW” button to the right  under the photo album. You’ll also want to follow our YouTube channel (Pinewood Kennels Cavapoos) and make sure you “ring” the bell after subscribing so you don’t miss any new videos.

There are loads of pages and information on the website. Please peruse through it at your leisure, but let me know if you have questions afterwards. (Emailing me on our original thread is best so I have our conversations in one place). There are lots of past blog posts you can read through. You can search on the search bar for a certain subject or just start scrolling, reading and enjoying pictures.

If you call with questions we are not available Friday night or Saturday. That’s our doggie “business” day off. You’re welcome to send an email with questions, but remember if you send it Friday or Saturday, I most likely won’t get back to you before Sunday. And if it happens to be a Puppy Delivery weekend for any of our litters, I probably won’t get back to you until Monday.

Make sure you read through the puppy matching process pages and let me know if you have questions about the process. I do not call everybody on the main waiting list every time we match a litter. It’s your “job” (you didn’t know you signed up for a job did you? 😉) when you see a litter that you’re interested in, are available on the litter’s Puppy Matching Day for a phone call and can meet me in Spokane on Puppy Delivery Day to email me and let me know that you’d like to be added to that specific litter’s call list for puppy matching day. And you would need to do that with each litter you’re interested in (and why you need to check the blog for litter news 😊) because I don’t know each person’s schedule and if that timeframe work for you or you’re interested in that specific litter. I hope that all makes sense.

When Puppy Matching Day rolls around I put everyone that has reached out for that litter in order of how they are on the Main Cavapoo waiting list before I start making phone calls and matching puppies. Of course, those that have been on the list a longer time and are higher up the list have a better chance of being matched. It’s a process that takes patience as you move up the list. But please don’t hesitate to reach out even if you are new to the list. You never know what will happen. Typically with each litter only about one quarter of the list of people will reach out with interest about a litter. The exception are the red/apricot puppies. More people want that color and wait longer because of that so they are matched quickly with the top few people that reach out.

And now Reba and I are checking out for our rest day.  See you Sunday with more adorable puppy pictures! ❤️

One more thing, if anyone changes their mind and doesn’t want to be on our list and wait for a puppy, I will refund your “non-refundable” application fee up until seven days after the date I responded to your application.

Who is Chloe?

I had a Chloe L. apply but only sent Part 2 application. Part 1 did not come through so I have no way of getting a hold of this person.

So Chloe is you are reading this and your neighbor and roommate both had Pinewood Cavapoos (yeah!) I need you to submit Part 1 again.

 

Thanks!

Waiting list is closed again…sorry

I’m sorry for anyone that didn’t quite get their application in, but we have been bombarded  in the past four days with new applications. We just reopened the list on Monday and we have more than enough applications to keep us busy for quite a while so I am closing the list again!

No more applications will be accepted after the time this post is up! So sorry.

If you already submitted one this week and haven’t heard from me, I’m still working through the stack and will get to you (hopefully today). If you heard back from me but are riding the fence about sending the fee and finishing the process please know that you still can but we have so many people already on the list the “guesstimate” will at least a year and up to a two year wait for a puppy at this point. It’s a possibility to be matched sooner, but I want you to know what to expect.

If you didn’t get your application in before we closed, please sign up for email notifications from our blog so you don’t miss future announcements about the reopening of the list.

Application update

Hi everyone!

I am still working my way through all the applications. I know I mentioned if you apply and hadn’t heard from me in 48 hours to shoot me an email. No need for that at this time. I haven’t forgotten anyone (yet :P) it’s just taking much longer than I anticipated to conquer this process.

I need to read through part one, find the matching part 2 (on a separate email), email that person that they are approved or ask more questions first if I have concerns or question. Then I’m answering incoming from those people if/when they respond, answer questions, looking up/recording payments through Venmo or PayPal, adding names to the main waiting list along with continuing on with the new applications and answering regular emails. No complaining, just trying to explain the process a bit and why it’s taking me so long to respond to you. I really do appreciate each of you and thank you for your patience during this process! (I gave some of my chores to hubby this morning so I could get started earlier today and hopefully plow through all of them).

And now for some puppy cuteness to hold you over. <3

❤️

This will take time

Guys, I’m going to be real with you. This is going to take time. To those of you who sent you application in this morning already, thank you. Please be patient for a response from me. The email confirmation is not automated. I will personally go through each application and respond as I have time. Your application is time-stamped and I will go through them in the order that they came in.  Hubby does not help in this department and there’s just little ol’ me! 😀

As of 11:00 this morning there are over 65 new applications! :O

And I still have to tend to the house, horses, chickens, what’s left of the garden produce, adult dogs and all of our adorable puppies, and throw some food my hubby’s way once in a while. 😉 hehe

I mean check out this adorable bunch. They turned two weeks old on Saturday. They’re eyes are opened and they are toddling over and started to use their UgoDog litter box. They aren’t terribly time consuming at this point because they mostly eat and sleep but they still take time each day.

And then there’s this bunch, the litter of TEN! Okay, technically they are two litters; Hazel’s singleton, Ranger and Sage’s nine, “the aunts and uncles”;) But at this point they are just all lumped together as one large litter. And at five weeks of age they take a lot of time each day; feeding, cleaning, playing and socializing, etc. Right now we’re working on bigger quarters for them. They are outgrowing the biggest puppy pen I have!

So patience is part of the process when you decide to send us an application and join the fun (and chaos) that is our lives. And we appreciate each and every one of you!

Important waiting list/application info

Hi there!

As many of you know we have decided to open our Cavapoo waiting list again tomorrow, October 12th (please do not send an application in tonight) so I wanted to share some important information for those that might be new to us (or if you’ve been around a while too).

I would advise you to start by reading this helpful page. https://pinewoodcavapoos.com/puppy-info/adoption-info/

In a nutshell, to get on our waiting list you must first fill out Part 1 & Part 2 of our Puppy adoption forms consecutively. To make things even easier on me, please add your name to one of the answer boxes on Page 2 also. (But if you forget your name please don’t send part 2 again. It just makes things more confusing). The reason for this is when you submit a form to me it comes into my email inbox. Part 1 comes as one email and Part 2 comes as another email. If I get thirty applications tomorrow, all the first parts come in one email and all the second parts as one email. Then I have to match them together in order to read all of your information in one place. You can see why filling Part 2 out right after Part 1 can help me match things up easier. (You will find the Puppy Adoption forms under the Puppy Info heading at the top of the page).

After you have filled out the applications and submitted them, please wait for my confirmation email before sending the $75 non-refundable application fee. 

People are added to the list on a first come-first serve basis, but I need to approve your application before you may send the fee to get on. “Jumping the gun” so to speak does not get you on sooner. 😉

I will try to respond to your application as fast as I can, but realize our list has been closed for six months and I’m expecting to be bombarded with new applicants. Be patient. It will take me a while to go through them. If you haven’t heard back from me within 48 hours you may send an email reminder. (We take one 24 hour period off from doggie “business” Friday evening to Saturday evening so if you apply on a Friday you might not hear back from me until Sunday. And if I’m delivering puppies to their new owners on a particular Sunday you might not hear back from me until Monday).

I’m sure the number one question on everyone’s mind will be “how long will the wait be for a puppy?” That’s an expected question and a good one, but very hard to answer. All I can do is give you an educated guess.

One factor will be how many new people get on the list (ahead of you). The next crucial keys are what are you looking for? If you don’t care about color or gender I might guess it could be eight months to a year. If you’re looking for a red/apricot female (our most requested combo) then you might be waiting a year to a year and a half). A lot of times I find that people end up being matched with a puppy sooner rather than later on my guesstimate. Another factor to consider, many people “say” they are open to color and gender, but when the rubber meets the road they pass on available puppies and end up holding out for a red or apricot.

Once your application is approved, you have sent your fee and gotten the confirmation that you’ve been added to our main waiting list, then your “homework” begins. We do not contact you when we have available puppies, you need to contact us when you are interested in a certain litter. Here is a page that explains our matching process and what you need to do. It is long, but it’s important that you read and understand it. If you have questions please shoot me an email or give me a call.

Our Puppy Matching Process

Ranger thanks you for dropping by and taking the time to read this important information! 😉

Saturday fun!

The puppies get more and more playful as each day passes. Even little Virginia is getting bolder and more adventurous. It’s so much fun to watch each litter grow and develop their own little personalities. I hope those that are on our list have been able to watch the individual videos I did of each puppy so you can get a better “picture” of each puppy.

Here’s the link. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4ZHeNCF9MkwOGjprC1Vp2Q/videos?view_as=subscriber

And now, for some cute pictures of their fun today 🙂

❤️

First outdoor excursion

After puppy pictures today I took the puppies outside for the first time to get the wiggles out and go potty before lunch.

They were a bit tentative to begin with but before long they were really enjoying themselves. Well everybody but Virginia. She wasn’t too sure about the great outdoors so she got some extra cuddles. ❤️

So much cuteness, so much fun!

Starting to explore

Hazel and Sage’s puppies are just starting to venture out. They’re not real bold yet. Of course some are more outgoing and adventurous and some are a bit more cautious at this stage. But they’re all adorable!

I will get more pictures and videos of them up today. We’ll do their five-week-old pictures today and get some individual video descriptions of each one 🙂

Stay tuned for more cuteness!
