Fiddle's and Swede's medium to large F1B goldendoodles at 4 weeks
Fiddle's pups are quite the nice crew. I love seeing their personalities start to bud. There's certainly a good range of sizes and coats in this litter.
The pups are starting to enjoy their softened food and learning to keep toileting out of the whelping box. I love this 'classic' litter.
Choosing will happen starting July 9th and they can start going home after July 15. This litter is all spoken for.

Fiddle's and Swede's medium to large F1B goldendoodles born May 20
Fiddle was very cute when I put her into her nursery in preparation for her litter. She explored and wagged in a big way, and she was so excited. I would often find her just laying quietly in her whelping box, with this excited look of anticipation in her eye while she waited for labour to start.
After long last she had the typical wane in appetite on the 19th and on the 20th things got more serious. I was pleased when she started shortly after 8pm. I would not lose as much sleep this time!! Lol.
Fiddle is a very calm and self assured mama. There was no drama with her labouring. She was quiet and attentive to all her pups and very aware of where each pup was, even when she was birthing another. She doesn't prefer an audience and waited until I had just been in to see her before she started. And when I did decide to come and investigate in person (and not only through the surveillance camera) she had the biggest smile and wag, and was so happy to show me what she'd been up to.
She loves all of our pets, but prefers to have the pups all to herself the first day or 2. I did't want to cause her unnecessary stress so I just let her be to enjoy those wonderful newborn moments.
When I took a better look later the next day I counted 5 boys and 5 girls. We named them after terms that mean "classic". Fiddle's is the second last litter we'll have of Dayo’s lineage (our beloved stud of 14 years)! Biscuit's upcoming litter will be our last. They will hold a very special place in our hearts for sure!!
The pups are called Masterly, Prime, Prototype, Textbook, Vinage, Classy, Finest, Genuine, Model, and Pristine.
Choosing for this litter will occur after July 8 and the earliest the pups can start going home is July 15. All of this litter is spoken for!
