Cotton's and Nic-o's F1B standard goldendoodles at 4 weeks old
Here they are in all their puppy glory at 4 weeks old! My, but does time fly by quickly!! This litter is growing nicely and developing socially on par. They're starting to hear us say, "Here puppy!"" when their softened food is served. This is the beginning of teaching them recall.
The pups are toileting outside the whelping box on wood chips and starting to explore more and more in their nursery -- when they're awake. They still sleep a lot!!
This week they'll start new location exposure in the K9 living room. I'm in love with this litter. As usual I have a fondness for each one, and for all different reasons I can tell you why each one is my favourite! Lol! (I may love my job :)
I'm looking forward to seeing the pups develop and mature over the next few weeks as their personalities blossom. They can start going home on June 3. All of these pups are spoken for.

Cotton's & Nico's F1B standard goldendoodle pups born April 5
This is Cotton's first litter. She took advantage of a nice sunny day to have her pups 5 days early. When Cotton started, she actually had her first pup in her outside dog house. The other dogs let us know with some commotion when they heard the newborn cry!
She needed some paw holding so I sat Cotton in her whelping box to help her settle. An hour later she had her second pup. After she cleaned up her pup she pushed it over to me, as if to say, "I already have one, you can have this one." She is just beyond sweet... what a girl!
But after pup #3 was born she was into full mommy, “I got this” mode and was caring so well for them all that I could leave and let her natural instincts take over (while I watched on my surveillance camera just in case). She is such a good mama and is so attentive. The pups are all doing very well at this time.
Cotton is a favourite of our dear neighbour friend, Hannah, who works for Hope Mission at Bethany Homes (just down the road from us). She's the horse wrangler and helps out with the children's programs at schools, but also wherever she's needed, so we decided to name the pups after a Hope Mission theme.
The 8 boys are named: Brightwood, Counselor, Handy (helping hands), Hub, Hope, Mission, Teglar and Wrangler. The 2 girls are called Bethany and Charity.
The pups will have their vet visit around May 25 and we'll do their temperament/aptitude testing on May 29. Choosing will happen May 30/31. The 2 hour training Zoom call will be May 31 at 7pm (tentatively) and the pups can start going home on June 2. All of these pups are spoken for.
