Our newest Tomorrows Pups
Updated September 26

I have 15+ 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 7-8. 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!

Plans may change depending on when they all come into season -- hopefully not all at once!!

Bred but not confirmed pregnant:
Hazel and Ryder for F1B mini/medium goldendoodles: due November 4
Dolly and Abe for F1 medium goldendoodles: due November 16
Chicky and Yogi for F1B standard goldendoodles: due November 17
Penny and Marlo for F1B mini goldendoodles (this wait list is full (5) until they're born and I know how many there are): due November 18
Chevy and Marlo for F1 mini/medium goldendoodles: due November 27
Biscuit and Swede for F1B medium/standard goldendoodles: in season and not bred yet but should be due end of November!

We have some fabulous pups left in Tess' and Abe's litter!
September 3

It's hard for me not to just keep one of these pups back, because they're such great pups!!

If you're interested in these fabulous pups please see how our adoption process works. Check out the books which are required reading and then contact me!

Sombrero is an active character, comical and a lot of fun. He's short and stocky and may grow to weigh ~55-60 lbs. He has a minimal/lower shedding type coat.

Beret is a jovial interactive girly. She loves to play and also loves a good cuddle. My guess weight for her is ~50 lbs. She has a bit of a straighter coat, but will likely be a low-to-moderate shedder. -- ADOPTED

Derby is a sweet, playful girl. She has loads of character and a good amount of energy. This pup plays well with others and also plays very well on her own. My guess weight for her is ~55 lbs. Derby's coat is straighter and she'll likely be a moderate shedder. -- ADOPTED

Stetson is the tallest, biggest boy of the litter. He's a more gentle soul and easier going, but still quite playful and with a softer temperament. My guess is that he will weigh around the 60 lb mark and will be a minimal shedder. -- ADOPTED

Tess' and Abe's litter of Medium F1 Goldendoodles at 4 weeks old!
August 6

As the summer has flown by so have the infant moments of this litter! Now the pups are toddling out and about, eating kibble, and readying themselves for adventure!

This litter has been super chilled when handled. They simply relax and cuddle without a care in the world. We'll see how they mature and grow from here as their personalities are just budding!!

There's a good range of sizes in this litter. The biggest ones are twice the size of the smallest ones at this time! My guess weight for these pups is between 35-65 lbs.

Choosing for this litter will start after their vet appointment on August 26. The soonest they can go home is September 1, but I'm willing to hold them here for the month of September to help work within your schedule. I do want folks to be prepared for their new family member, as rush decisions are not a good idea.

I do have several spots available in this litter. Please contact me if you're interested in a pup and check out FAQ to see how our adoption process works.

Beret: female ~ pink ribbon -- ADOPTED

Darla's and Yogi's F1 Standard Goldendoodle Pups at 4 weeks old
July 22

Wow! It's hard to believe that 4 weeks have passed already, but these pups are all rockin' and rollin' just the way they should be.

I can't always know when I'll get help to take photos and unfortunately they were just enjoying some food when help arrived! Lol. The pups are toileting outside of their whelping box and are starting to eat softened kibble.

There's quite a variety of coat colours and even some curly ones in this F1 litter! Darla has a very soft coat and that often means that pups will shed less, but we'll just wait and see!

Choosing for this litter will happen after August 14. The pups can go home starting as early as August 20 when they're 8 weeks old. I can hold a pup for a couple of weeks as well.

There is availability in this litter. Contact me if you're interested!

Fender: male ~ brown ribbon -- ADOPTED

Gibson: male ~ green ribbon -- ADOPTED

Martin: male ~ red checkered ribbon -- ADOPTED

Seagull: male ~ blue ribbon -- ADOPTED

Yamaha: male ~ yellow ribbon -- ADOPTED

Epiphone: female ~ purple ribbon -- ADOPTED

Ovation: female ~ orange ribbon -- ADOPTED

Taylor: female ~ pink ribbon -- ADOPTED

Tess' and Abe's 11 F1 Medium Goldendoodle pups are born July 7!!
July 9

Hats off to Tess and Abe on the arrival of their stunning litter of puppies!!

These pups were born beginning at 1pm Sunday afternoon and Tess was done about 10 hours later. Tess was a real trooper and so attentive to her babes. There are 6 boys and 5 girls!

The theme for this litter is 'hats'. The boys are named: Beanie, Gatsby, Helmet, Sailor, Sombrero, and Stetson, and the girls are: Beret, Derby, Fedora, Party and Scally. My guess weight for these pups is between 35-65 lbs. There's a huge range in sizes at this time and we'll see how they grow!

The pups will have their vet check on August 26 and choosing can start after August 28. They'll be ready to go home starting after the September long weekend.

If you're interested in a pup from this litter, please contact me.

Darla's and Yogi's F1 Standard Goldendoodle pups born June 25!
July 2

We've tried two other times to breed Darla and she has not conceived. She would not allow another male to mate with her (she simply sat down! lol!), nor did she conceive through artificial insemination. For those who know, this is very odd behaviour in the dog world!.

I thought that if anyone could convince her, our gentle and sweet Casanova, Yogi, could. And sure enough, they're now both very proud to announce their beautiful litter of 8 puppies; 5 boys and 3 girls.

Our theme for this litter is named after Guitar Brands: The boys are Fender, Gibson, Martin, Seagull and Yamaha. The girls are Epiphone, Ovation and Taylor. There's a large variety of colours and sizes in this litter. I believe the pups will likely grow to be 55-80 lbs.

Both Darla and Yogi are gentle-natured dogs so we'll see as time goes on how their babies turn out. These pups will go to their vet visit on August 12 and choosing will start shortly after that. They'll be 8 weeks old August 20 and I can start letting them go home starting on the 21st at the earliest.

I've done an experiment with my last four litters to allow some pups to stay here up to 12 weeks. Any pup who is going to become a service or therapy dog, or if your family has small children, or if you don’t have experience with rearing puppies, this time is recommended. There's a $50 per week charge for any claimed pups staying after 10 weeks of age plus $20 for any needed shots to keep them updated.

Please contact me if you're interested in Darla's pups or if you have any questions.

Our most imminently available pups
June 3

Azalea has now been ADOPTED!

Azalea's antics are comical and she keeps us laughing.

I consider her to be a higher energy pup who has a ton of character and smarts who can excel in agility or Search & Rescue. She needs an experienced person to help bring out her amazing potential, but she learns quickly and loves to be by your side.

Azalea's coat is coming in nicely. My guess is that she'll be very close to non-shedding and will weigh around 40 lbs.

Contact me if you're interested in this pretty girl!

Mr. Reef has been ADOPTED!

Reef is a handsome little 'old man' lookin' puppy.

His coat is slowly turning into brown tones. He has lots of playful energy, but slows down and chills for snuggles and belly rubs. Reef is smart, loves to play with dogs and people and is ready to go to his new home. He will likely shed a bit and will likely stay under 20 lbs.

See how our adoption process works on FAQ if you're interested in this little guy.

Rayon has been ADOPTED!

Rayon is a very handsome medium apricot boy who has a very chill attitude. When he's held he simply melts on your lap... a great calming sidekick.

My guess is that he'll grow to be around 60 lbs and will likely be a very minimal to non-shedder. Rayon has started well in-crate and on-leash. He will make someone an amazing companion.

Contact me if you're interested.

Our imminently available pups
May 21

Azalea has now been ADOPTED!

Azalea is one of the smallest of Hazel's and Swede's F1B litter. My guess weight for her is 40-45 lbs. She has a flatter coat at this time, but her brother from a couple of years ago also had a straight coat and didn’t end up shedding.

Azalea is full of the dickens. She's very playful with lots of energy -- her wag just does not want to stop. She can go home after May 30th.

If you are interested in Azalea, please contact me!

Mr. Reef has been ADOPTED!

Reef is available for his new home anytime now.

I wanted to keep Mr. Reef with his mama (Tetley) for a bit longer as he was quite a busy, tenacious pup. He's still very fun with endless wags and a jovial character. His mama, and time, have helped to make him more well-rounded and I feel he's ready to be in his new home.

Reef was the smallest in his litter and will likely grow to be 15 lbs. He is $1800.

Please contact me if you have an interest in giving Reef an amazing home. He will pay you back with lots of joy and laughter.

Rayon has been ADOPTED!

Rayon is an F1 medium poodle cross golden.

He has a calm/soft character, loves his snuggles and has a real calming effect on people.

Rayon was quite shy the last couple of weeks but now he's coming into himself and is enjoying his more adventurous life.

My guess weight for him is 60ish lbs. He may be a light shedder, but he should not shed too much.

Contact me if you're interested in him! He can go home after May 30th.

Tulip has been ADOPTED!

Tulip is an F1B medium poodle cross goldendoodle. He's energetic and interactive, likes to be with people and loves to play!

My guess weight for him is around the 50 lb mark. He can go home after May 30th.

Please contact me if you're interested.

Hyacinth has been ADOPTED!

Hyacinth is an F1B medium poodle cross goldendoodle. He's an energetic, curly boy and a friendly sort who comes running when called.

My guess weight for him is 60lbs. He can go home after May 30th.

Contact me if you're interested in him.

Patsy has been ADOPTED!

Patsy is an F1B standard poodle cross goldendoodle. She's a sweet, soft-tempered pup. She plays quietly on her own and with others.

My guess weight for her is 55-60 lbs. Patsy can go home after May 30th.

Contact me if you're interested.

Chesney has been ADOPTED!

Chesney is an F1B male goldendoodle. He's quite a character and enjoys a little prey drive, but is not overly strong in it. He is a cuddler, a player, and ready for a family to love!

My guess weight for him is 55ish lbs. Chesney can go home after May 30th.

Contact me if you're interested.
