Our imminently available pups
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 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.
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!
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.
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.
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
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!
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!
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
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!

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

Kit's and Horton's F1 medium goldendoodle litter at 4 weeks old
What an adorable bunch of puppies!! These sweet pups are growing and learning lots from their mom. Kit has taught them to exit their whelping box early. As she prefers to feed them out of the whelping box they were early to toilet outside.
The pups have started on softened kibble and we're starting to see their personalities bud more everyday!
Choosing for this litter happens around the May 11th weekend. They can start going home after May 29.
At this time we have 2 spots available in this litter. Contact us if you're interested!

JJ’s and Abe's litter of 12 F1B medium sized goldendoodles arrives
JJ and Abe are proud to announce the arrival of 12 beautiful F1B medium goldendoodle pups on April 12!
When JJ started having her pups I knew we were in for a big litter because her pups were quite small and her tummy was huge! JJ is a very attentive mamma and those pups are being very well nurtured and nourished by her!
She had just gotten up when I brought the camera in, so I tried to make her pose with her pups. Eventually they were all drinking again but by then she was flat out, and not posing. So for photos, we get what we get, as I like to try to keep things calm as possible during these first few days.
There are 9 boys and 3 girls. Our youngest daughter came to visit from college this weekend. She was studying muscle names, hence the theme.
We named the boys: Abs, Biceps, Lats, Masseter, Occiput, Popliteus, Rhomboids, Subscap and Triceps, and the girls: Deltoid, Iliospoas, and Soleus.
With the parents weighing 30 and 40 lbs, I would assume most of the litter will be in this weight range when grown.
I do have availability in this litter at this time. The pups' vet appointment will be the end of May and choosing will happen the first couple weeks of June. They can go home after mid June.
We have sad news about Penny's litter
I took Penny in for an ultrasound today 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.
Hazel's and Swede's F1B medium Goldendoodles born March 31
Hazel and Swede are very proud to announce the arrival of their fabulous medium and dark apricot F1B medium goldendoodles! At 7:45am on Sunday morning, and exactly 1 week after Kit had her litter, Hazel started to have her pups! She had lots of false labour last week and finally it was her turn! She was a pro!!
There are 11 pups! The theme is Spring Flowers. The boys are: Crocus, Daffodil, Freesia, Hyacinth and Tulip. The girls are: Azalea, Bluebell, Iris, Lilac, Lily and Peony.
All of her pups are so well cared for, as she's very gentle and attentive. If you look at Hazel's and Swede's first litter together, 2 years ago, there were only 3 pups who were very different from each other. I believe this litter will be much the same. Some are very curly and some quite straight -- and it looks as if there will be a vast range of sizes!! My guess is that the pups will range in weight between 35-60 lbs.
Their vet check is on May 13 and choosing can start happening shortly after that. They'll be able to start going home after May 29.
I have a few spots available in this litter. If you're interested, please contact me.
