Chevy's and Swede's litter of F1 medium goldendoodles born August 8
August 10

Chevy had a lot of false labour before the real thing took place on Wednesday! I was so thankful when those cuties finally made their entrance and I'm more than sure that Chevy was too!! There are 6 boys and 6 girls making a perfect dozen! This will keep both Chevy and I very busy these next couple months!!

The original "The Incredibles" came out 14 years ago, around the time we started breeding doodles! But we never named a litter after The Incredibles before, so our kids and summer guests thought we should this time! The boys are Mr. Incredible, Dash, Jack Jack, Frozone, Rick Dicker, and Winston. The girls are Elastigirl, Violet, Edna Mode, Evelyn Deavour, Voyd, and Ambassador.

Choosing will happen after September 19 and the pups will be ready to go to their new homes on or after October 3.

I'm in the process of calling folks on my wait list to see who all wants to be in on this litter. Because of the size of this litter I may have a spot left... but if not in this litter, the upcoming litter with Roxy and Horton is due beginning of September (and going home beginning of November).

Contact me if you're interested in an F1 medium goldendoodle pup from this litter.

Dory's and Chewy's mini F1 Corgipoos at 4 weeks old
August 10

The adventure of our first Corgipoo litter has been a delight! It's always interesting to see the differences of how one litter can be from another. There have not been a lot of differences yet from what we normally see in temperament, as it is early in their development, but they have a different body frame with their short legs. It's not often we get pups this small either.

I've had this plush dog house for years (used in the photos) but have not had pups small enough to fit into it at 4 weeks for photos, until these guys came along!

The pups are bright and started to wander out of their whelping box at 3 weeks. They're well on their way to toiletting outside of their whelping box and soon enough they'll be going through a doggy door to go outside!

The pups are starting to eat softened kibble and now come when called! They're certainly a social and fun bunch -- personalities are blooming and they're already quite comical, which Corgis are notorious for.

Choosing for these pups will likely be on the last week of August to the beginning of September. They'll be able to go home on or after September 6.

I do have availability in this litter. Contact me if you're interested.

Cornelius: male ~ orange ribbon

Nels: male ~ plaid ribbon (largest of the group)

Stephan: male ~ blue ribbon (smallest of the group)

Anne: female ~ green striped ribbon

Joy: female ~ peach ribbon

The happy bunch of campers are back for puppy time! (and laundry :)

Dory's and Chewy's F1 Corgipoo pups born July 12
July 19

Hearty K9s is very proud to announce our first litter of Corgipoos (Pembroke Corgi X Poodle) puppies!

Dory is a natural mama and is very nurturing to her pups now, but I do think she'll enjoy them even more when they're ready to play! Lol. Corgis have a playful, goofy nature. We're so excited to see these little ones grow! There are 3 boys and 2 girls. 4 are black with large white chests and many have white toes. One is a tri coloured male.

This summer, my two youngest children are working at a nearby Bible Camp. They have one day off a week to 'rest', do laundry, eat, sleep and go off to the next camp. They bring home friends (other staff) that have too far to go back home between camps (from Calgary, BC and Scotland) and we've had a lot of fun hosting them when they come. They thought it very appropriate to name the pups after themselves... but I suggested middle names. The boys are Cornelius, Nels and Stephen and the girls are Anne, and Joy.

I expect these pups to range in weight mostly between the 15-20 lb mark, but could range from 12-25 lbs. Their short legs and longer body is a dominant gene and is perfect for those who have height restrictions for a k9! They should stay under 14", more like a medium-size dog on short legs.

These pups will be ready to go home after September 6.

I have availability in this litter! Please contact me if you're interested in one of these pups and send in your application!

A happy bunch of campers getting puppy time with their namesakes!

We're very excited to announce our new Pembroke Corgi X Poodle!
July 18

AKA Corgipoos or Corgidoodles... maybe even Poogis or Porgis?

Some may ask why would I breed this cross. I first came across a Corgipoo a few years ago. After doing a lot of research on Pembroke Corgis I have since connected with their character (see qualities of Pembroke Corgis on Understanding Doodles) and am happy to say they don’t have as many health concerns as many breeds out there. I wanted people with allergies to have a chance to experience these dogs as well. Now that my hubby, Dean, has developed allergies to shedding dogs in the last couple of years I'm even more passionate about this.

Although the F1s (first generation) may not work for some allergy sufferers, it will be a wait and see thing.

Hazel's and Yogi's F1B standard goldendoodles at 4 weeks
April 30

This little bunch of munchkins has certainly been a breeze to work with! They're a variety of sizes, coats and colours. Soon we'll be seeing their personalities develop, which is always an interesting adventure to behold. Hazel is an attentive mama and the pups are growing well. The pups are now starting to eat softened food and are coming out of their whelping box to explore and bathroom.

We still have several spots available in this litter. The pups will be vet checked on May 16 and choosing will happen after that. They'll be ready to go home after May 30.

Please see how our adoption process works on FAQ, and contact me if you're interested.

Hazel's and Yogi's F1B standard goldendoodle puppies born April 3
April 6

Hazel Grace laboured for several days off and on and finally the little critters appeared in the afternoon of April 3rd. I could hardly believe how many there were. I thought she would have 8 max and was hoping for at least 5! Her belly didn’t even rub the sides of the doggie door as she went through.

There are 6 boys and 4 girls. The theme is "Names that might make you break into song". These choices 'may' date us some, lol, but I am sure these dogs will be serenaded a lot! I may just have to print off lyrics to hang in their nursery to get all the words right!

The boys are named: You can call me AL (Paul Simon), DANNY BOY, Duke of EARL, FERNANDO (Abba), Hey JUDE, and Skip to my LOU. The girls are: Sweet CAROLINE, LAYLA (Eric Clapton unplugged), LUCY in the sky with diamonds, and Hey MICKEY you’re so fine.

I would expect these pups to weigh anywhere from 50-70 lbs as adults. Choosing will start after their vet appointment on May 16th. They can start going home after they turn 8 weeks on May 30th.

I have availability in this litter, now that I know how many I have! If you're interested please contact me. Also see how our adoption process works and peruse the required reading on FAQ.

If I had to do the same again, I would, my friend, Fernando.

Tomorrow's Pups update
March 23

I have 25 people on my waitlist for all sizes and timeline requests. The number of pups born in each litter will determine how much room I have for more deposits. I'll only accept more deposits if you're willing to wait while previous deposits are filled.

The current average of pups in a litter is 7. I don't like to take more than 5 deposits per litter until the pups are born, and when there are more than 5 pups I'll accept more deposits.

Future Pairings are not written in stone and will depend on demand/suitable mating partners. The girls are doing their own thing when it comes to their cycles. I can only guess what will happen next! Here is the latest!

Late Summer/ Early Fall Litters:
Chevy and Horton or Swede for F1 goldendoodles.
Zola and Horton for F1B mini goldendoodles. This wait list is already full for now. Until their pups are born we won't know how many there will be to go around! If we can find a mini poodle suitable for her we'll switch sires. Sadly Ziggy didn’t reach the bar we've set for a quality breeding sire. We do have an eligible stud (hopefully) coming from the states. We hope he'll be just the right match for Zola... if not this time around then the next.

Late Fall litters:
Roxy and Ryder or Horton for F1 mini/medium sized goldendoodles.
Biscuit and Ryder or Swede for F1B mini/medium sized goldendoodles.
Darla and Swede for F1 medium goldendoodles.

Winter Litters:
JJ and Ryder for F1B mini goldendoodles.
Kit and Horton for F1 medium goldendoodles.
Penny and Horton for F1B mini/medium goldendoodles.
Fiddle and Yogi or Winter for F1B standard goldendoodles.
Tess and Winter or Yogi for F1 standard goldendoodles.

We're presently searching for homes for 2 1 adult dogs. Please call me if you're interested.

Tilly, a 5 year old F1, 55 lb goldendoodle. Spayed. She does shed some. Very intelligent, outgoing and house trained. I can see her with a family with teens, or an active family. She loves little kids but can be a bit dominant. $1200.

Ziggy, a one year old neutered male mini poodle. He was raised with an elderly couple and enjoys a quieter lifestyle. He's a bit leary of strangers. A great cuddler and certainly has great entertainment value with his antics. He has been housetrained. CKC registered. $1000.

Still available puppies!!!
March 13

We presently have 2 pups available from Tess’ and Winter’s litter. Both girls should stay in that 55-60 lb mark.

Holsby is an active, confident girl. She has a more dominant character but also plays well on her own. A smart little cookie! She has a wavier coat and she'll likely turn out to be a low to non-shedder. -- ADOPTED

Venice is a wavier-coated girl. She has a little softer personality, but still has some good spunk. -- ADOPTED

If you're interested in either of these pups, please contact us. Read FAQ about how our adoption process works and read the homework as well.
