August 11, 2019: Today we got our new velcro collars!
August 18, 2019 It has been a big weekend for the Pups. They turned 3 weeks old, moved out to their new
home in the kennel, had their nails clipped, and they started “puppy mush” twice a day. Mama Sugar is doing great, but I think she is relieved now to have a little help feeding the hungry crew and getting some help with clean up!

PUPS ARE 4 WEEKS OLD TODAY! NICE DAYS AND LOTS OF OUTSIDE TIME. EATING LIKE LITTLE PIGGIES AND VENTURING OUT FURTHER AND FURTHER. VERY CONTENT PUPPIES WITH LOTS OF LOVE AND ATTENTION. BY THE TIME WE GOT TO THE PHOTO SESSION, MANY OF THE PUPPIES WERE READY FOR THEIR NAPS! SLEEPY BABIES AND BRIGHT SUNSHINE!

UPDATE AUGUST 6TH, 2019: Berkel wanted to go home, so we had Mr. Yellow join Sugar’s litter and let her go home to her Family on Sunday. All is going very well and the puppy is thriving with his new “brothers and sisters”. All is Well.
It was July 31st and Berkley had labored too long. A trip to the Vet and an emergency C-Section revealed she had been carrying only ONE PUPPY the entire pregnancy.
Introducing Berkley’s only boy. Mr. Gorgeous! Healthy and strong, Yellow Male.
This post has been delayed because Sugar has had a few rough days…..
Best News is, that we have a Yellow Mama that has an All Black Litter! The pups were born on July 26th.
All 7 are beautiful and healthy. 4 Males and 3 Females. There will be more pictures coming as Sugar
recuperates and we catch up on some sleep!

In the life of a breeder, such as we are, there are a lot of “UPS” and “DOWNS”.
Today is one of our DOWN DAYS. We found out through ultrasound that Trixie’s breeding did not take this time.
We can only try again in 5-6 months. Thank you to all that have been waiting….I share your disappointment.
Our son, Ike and his family recently bred their lovely girl Rushwind “Berkley” to Ganderhill “Rowan”. UPDATE: 8/1/19 THIS BREEDING PRODUCED A SINGLE MALE PUPPY.
Rushwind’s “BERKLEY” 2 years old.
