Hello Folks, We've got a load of new pups in Fiona's belly. She's all lovey from the Mommy-hormones, can't get enough affection. She's like a cat, going around and around between my legs in a figure eight. We are excited about these F1B pups, Fiona's second litter with Chaco. The summer litter was so sweet, and so beautiful, and so special that we are ready for a repeat. Please let us know if you want to reserve yours and we'll figure out delivery and maybe a time half way through when you can come for a visit at the farm! Around maple sugaring time! These will sure be sweet pups by that measure!
OK, now we've got Fiona's litter of F1B's on the ground! They are awesome. You just have to love the fur. Heather calls it chenille. Really my take on the whole Labradoodle mix is that most people really like the look of an un-primped Standard Poodle, but they don't want to admit to having a poodle. In France, Poodles are called Canard, or Duck dogs. If only we'd call them that, people would like them more! Labs are the most popular breed of all, so people want some Lab. Thus a high poodle% Labradoodle is the most popular Doodle. I call them our Adirondack Water Dogs, a new breed :) Anyway, we love our Chaco poodle, and of course mama Dolly the Lab (now Grandma). Check out the pics of Chaco shaved, he looks like a Weimaraner with fuzzy ears. He's ghostly Chocolate grey. And Fiona of course is just a friendly Black Beauty.
Well, yeah, I have been lame about posting here! But now I'm on it. It has been a great litter so far. Dolly has been the uber-mother. We've still hardly had to clean up and they are extremely well-fed by her. All growing evenly and fast. Anyway, I also thought I'd share an email reply I made to a puppy owner, in reply to her understandable worries as they wait to finally get their precious puppy. Her question was basically, "Did we get the right puppy?" Because like 90% of our previous customers, she chose her boy from afar by computer. So here's what I have to say about that:
"Hi Janet, We love Curry! He's right out there mixing it up with
the rest of them. They are so funny, barking and tussling with each
other (for about two minutes a day, when they're not eating or
sleeping). I am confident that you won't find him shy or cowering
or weird--we don't grow them like that. No in all seriousness, I
think most of that comes from bad experiences with uninformed people overreacting to young dogs, which won't happen here or at your place, so we're good. We have yet to hear anything but these kind of comments "We love him/her--what a personality--best dog ever" More pictures soon. Just got your new email. The video is hilarious, b I think Curry is in the back right and gets set straight by little Phoebe, and then walks toward Ginger wagging his tail, and then he gets picked up by the chest by Phoebe and carried toward the
camera. And he probably ended up wagging his tail after all that!
Anyway, with us I say pick it on color or pick it at random, it'll
end up your favorite color and gender of dog :) Have a great night!"
So my point is make sure you choose the right breeder, and you'll find you chose the right puppy!
