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.

Our very, very latest Tomorrow's Pups update
July 9

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!!

Fall/Early Winter Litters Planned:
Chevy and Marlo or Ryder for F1 mini/medium goldendoodles
Biscuit and Yogi for F1B standard goldendoodles
Zola and Marlo for F1B mini goldendoodles
Penny and Marlo for F1B mini goldendoodles

Winter Litters Planned:
Dolly and Abe for F1 medium goldendoodles

Spring/Summer 2020 Planned:
JJ and Abe for F1B medium goldendoodles
Kit and Horton or Abe for F1 medium goldendoodles
Fiddle and Swede for F1B medium/large goldendoodles
Hazel and Yogi for F1B standard goldendoodles

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'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 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.

Our very latest Tomorrow's Pups update
May 21

I have 10+ 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!

Bred and Confirmed Pregnant: to go home spring/early summer
I took Penny in for an ultrasound and confirmed my suspicions that she had lost her litter. She's ok and seems to be taking everything in stride. We'll try again next time.

Summer/Early Fall Litters bred but not confirmed pregnant:
Darla and Yogi for F1 standard goldendoodles.
Tess and Abe for F1 medium goldendoodles.

Fall/Early Winter Litters Planned:
Chevy and Yogi or Horton for F1 medium/standard goldendoodles.
Biscuit and Yogi for F1B standard goldendoodles.
Zola and Marlo for F1B mini goldendoodles.
Penny and Marlo for F1B mini goldendoodles.

JJ's and Abe's F1B medium litter of goldendoodle puppies at 4 weeks!
May 11

What a sweet bunch of wee ones! The pups are enjoying their mush and toileting outside of the whelping box. I'm thankful they're a chilled group as I had to do this photoshoot single-handedly (I wouldn't be able to do that with many litters). I'm not saying that they'll stay this quiet as they're changing daily, but I am enjoying them immensely.

They get to see the vet on May 29 and choosing will happen shortly thereafter. They can start going home as early as June 7, but I can keep them longer if needed.

I have 2 spots available in this litter. Contact me if you're interested.

Mr. Reef, a male F1 mini Corgidoodle/Corgipoo, is available!
May 2

Mr. Reef has been ADOPTED!

Mr. Reef is an F1 mini Corgidoodle/Corgipoo. He has quite the little personality and is full of spunk and attitude but still loves his snuggles and belly rubs. As long as you're clear to communicate his boundaries he does well with them and he learns quickly.

His leash skills are starting off great and he likes his kennel time. He comes running when called and is a really fun pup.

I've found that staying with his mama and siblings a little longer has been good for him. He is 10 weeks of age in this photo.

My guess weight for him is around 15 lbs. His coat is turning some shades of brown in a certain light, and he will shed, but much less than a corgi would.

If you're interested in this little guy, please contact me!

Hazel's and Swede's litter of F1B medium goldendoodles at 4 weeks old
April 28

Hazel's pups are quite the crew of fun pups! They range from 1Kg to 1.8 Kg at 4 weeks old. There are a good variety of coats and characters developing! They look forward to their softened kibble time, as when I call "Puppies" they come running with gusto to chow down! We look forward to adding to their socialization program and to seeing how their personalities develop.

These pups will have their vet visit on May 13 and choosing will happen on or around the May 18 weekend. They can start going home after May 29, but I am able to hold them a bit longer to accommodate schedules.

I have 2 spots available in this litter. If you're interested, please contact me!

Hyacinth: male ~ dark blue collar -- ADOPTED

Tulip: male ~ turquoise ribbon -- ADOPTED

Fiddle's and Yogi's F1B goldendoodle pups at 4 weeks old
April 24

Fiddle's and Yogi's pups are growing and thriving well. I'm very pleased with their quick progress to learn to bathroom outside of the whelping box. They're also enjoying their softened kibble very much!

There's a crazy range of sizes in this litter. Kane and Patsy are the giants, and Conway and Dixie are the littlest (less than 1/2 the size of the 2 biggest!) Now that we've added softened kibble to their diet it will be interesting to see if the smaller ones catch up more.

These pups will have their vet visit on May 8. Choosing will occur the weekend of May 18. The pups can start going home after May 29, but I can also hold them here longer.

I have 3 pups left who are not spoken for in this litter at this time. Please contact me if you're interested!

Chesney: male ~ orange collar -- ADOPTED

Patsy: female ~ pink ribbon -- ADOPTED

Clay: male ~ brown collar -- ADOPTED

Conway: male ~ green ribbon -- ADOPTED

Jones: male ~ blue ribbon -- ADOPTED

Kane: male ~ red collar -- ADOPTED

Waylon: male ~ white ribbon -- ADOPTED
