Who Gets Who???
I know everyone will be excited to determine picks. Picks will be made closer to the 4-5 weeks of age.
I will contact families in order of deposits received, and we will make picks via FaceTime, zoom, videos and/or photos.
We do NOT allow for early visitations. The litters health is of top priority, and unintended transmission of serious virus/illness (parvo/kennel cough) happens all too frequently when early visitors are allowed.

Momma Dog- PepperPepper is a moyan poodle. She weighs about 40lbs. She is such a sweet girl. She loves to come over for her evening belly rubs. She just gently set her feet on my lap and lays her head over my chest. Pepper is very smart and was easy to train. She loves her walks and to be apart of our family outings.
Daddy Dog- ParksThis is Parks. He is daddy dog, and has fathered many of our other Australian Labradoodle litters. He has an amazingly soft coat, very very smart, and loves to talk to you about his day 😉
Here is more information about the Australian Labradoodle breed.
Australian Labradoodles is a mixed dog breed that started in Australia, I believe in the 80’s. It is was developed from Labradors, poodles, cocker spaniels, curly coated retrievers and Irish spaniels. They were developed by a breeder that wanted to breed for intelligence for the sake of being guide dogs for visually and mentally impaired, soft cotton-like coats that are hypoallergenic, as well as loyal, dedicated companions. So, needless to say, they are super smart, very sweet and social dogs.
CONFIRMATION- BABIES ARE ON THE WAY!Momma dog is getting big. We do not do an ultrasound- that just stresses momma dog out too much. So, we don’t know how many until babies are born.
We are still on track for babies to arrive first week of October. There is a 10 day period of when momma dog can go into labor. So its not an exact science- each litter is a little different. But I will make sure to keep everyone updated, and include photos once babies have arrived.
We are getting closer 🙂
Babies have arrived. Born 10-9-21.
Its a Beautiful Healthy litter of 9 babies. Brown and White parti, Black and White Parti and Tri Coloring.
We will let momma and babies recover and will post photos soon.
My apologies for the delayed posts. But out babies are doing wonderful! growing big, walking, playing, and eating lots and lots.
3 Weeks Old
Eating is a messy thing at this age.
Today is Dr Day
This Afternoon they have their vet exams scheduled. They will get their complete health exam, and deworming. The first set of shots will be given at a later date closer to 6 weeks of age.
Then over the next couple days is when we will start to determine picks. So I will be contacting the families in order of deposits received. I will share videos of each puppy that you will have to choose from. I am here to help as much as I can. So I am happy to talk you through the main differences among the litter mates.
They truly are all beautiful and sweet in this litter. So much fun! I am excited to watch them grow.
Vet has cleared all the babies as healthy as can be. They will get their shots right at 6 weeks, then will be ready to go home with you right after Thanksgiving. A perfect early Christmas Gift.
I am starting the process of reaching out to families to help everyone determine their puppy picks. Please text me your email address if you read this before I get the chance to reach out to you directly.
Here is some basic information about the puppies schedule, and eating that will remain pretty similar to when they are closer to going home-
Eating- 3-4times per day. this can change to your schedule. right now they eat about 6am, 11am, 3pm, and 7pm. with the entire litter, I do feed them 4 times just to make sure that they all get plenty of food, and no one gets left behind. but by the time they are ready to go home, they can easily handle eating 3 times/day if that fits your schedule better.
I do let them eat as much as they want. puppies are like toddlers. some days they will eat a lot, others not as much. that is ok as long as they are offered food in a way to where they are never limited, then they won’t get food aggression tendencies or over eat.
They generally poop when they eat. so allowing them to have a place to do their business during eating time, is good idea.
They will be eating completely solid food- NO CANNED FOOD. canned food is usually too rich on their tummies which can lead to diarrhea (no fun!). with the entire litter I do add water to their solid food when I give it to them. You will feel very quickly that they have some very strong and sharp teeth. so their food does not need to be softened. but if it takes them a little longer to get through their meal, then the food is a little softer which helps make sure they are getting enough to eat each meal.
All puppies are freely using the doggie-door! they come in and out as they please. that is such an awesome foundation for potty training for you.
It is normal for them to be nervous the first day they go home. so if they don’t eat much, its just nerves and excitement- totally normal. they will catch up by easting more later that day or the next.
Puppy ShotsThey will all be getting their first set of shots this weekend. then each incremental shots will be given a month apart.
All puppies did come back with a negative fecal- which means no worms or parasite. That is very common for the desert- not much lives here in our dry, hot climate. Some vets may ask for you to run another fecal out of precaution.
