A scheduled break.

Annabelle Doodles of New England will have a break from breeding and puppies until around December/January when we hope to breed Charlotte 2-Step for pup homes in the early spring. I already have several applications in her file so don't know if any more will be available until she whelps. Of course, you can send in applications any time and we will see what Mother Nature provides.  :+) 

I am not positive who her mate will be yet. Hopefully Wyatt which will bring a litter of blacks, chocolates and creams in a medium size.   If I use Lil Abner, it will be a mixture of minis and mediums in apricots.  I may also use an 'outside stud' from another breeder if one interests me. The best part of breeding are the many stud possibilities to choose from! I feel like a matchmaker at times.  :+)

It will be one of the very few times I do not have puppies during the holidays and we are looking forward to visiting family and friends during this break.  Last year, I had Christmas dinner in the oven while whelping a litter of pups from Miss Charlotte!

So I am wishing all patrons past, present and future a wonderful and safe holiday season!

I am so pleased to post this pic.

This is Ms. Sadie Benz and her new Guardian Family. We had to wait until dad returned home to welcome them to the ADNE program. 

Thanks to all linemen who work so many long hours to restore power to our communities!!  :+)

Ms. Sadie Benz

I am beyond 'over the moon' with the guardian family who visited to meet myself and Sadie on Monday. It could not have been a more perfect applicant. Ms. Sadie will be dropped off at her new home in Rochester, NH on Thursday morning.

Some things are just worth waiting for.  :+)

Daisy and Sadie playing together.

Sadie (10 weeks) is always trying to play with the adult doodles around here and typically just gets bowled over by them.  Today, I had the opportunity to have just a 'Mother and Daughter' playdate. Sadie was thrilled to have her mom all to herself to chase, tug  and wrestle with.

Daisy Mae is a wonderful mom and very gentle but in some of these pics you would think they are killing each other!! 

Sadie looks like she has a strangle hold on Daisy!

Sadie taunting her mom.

'Oh, I love you sooooo much'!

'Play nice, Sadie or mommy will leave.'

'Okay mommy, I will - I promise.'
Such cuties!

Ms. Sadie Benz is still looking for a Guardian Home.

What a great pup Sadie is. Calm for a girl just 10 weeks of age (8 lbs.).  She is doing very well with sitting in front of you when called and sitting for her meals.  This little girl is a miniature Labradoodle who will be about 25 lbs. at maturity. She is learning to calm down quicker when placed in her crate area. Each night there is less and less objection - maybe 3 minutes.  :+)

I was away for about a week and upon my return, she was cheerful and engaging, not shy or reclusive. Sadie is not a hyper pup but does love attention and cuddles. She likes to play with a ball and loves interacting with all the adult doodles here.

Sadie would truly love another dog to live with but would also acclimate easily with someone who is home and wants furry company. She would do great with well behaved, gentle children. 

Ms. Sadie Benz has a soft, sweet (not timid) temperament and completely settles when held.

If I don't answer right away.... UPDATE!

I will be taking a few days off attending a 5 day Labradoodle seminar in NYC!  Hubby will be in charge of doodles while I am gone.  So, please be aware I may not respond as quickly as normal to questions and such.  It will be a hectic but fun time!

:+)  Joyce

UPDATE:  Although I will be gone again tomorrow through Monday to attend our grandson's birthday party in another state, I think I will still be able to answer emails. It sure has been a whirlwind few days! I can't wait to get into my bed tonight.

After an incredibly busy week, today has culminated with all these families meeting each other and enjoying their new addition to their family.  Hopefully, all will go well over the next few nights in their new home.

After everyone left, I had another family visit for my spring litter and then I laid down! :+)  Here are the pics of all these furry babies with their owners.

Louie -  Louis has been adopted by the Jones family.

Simba joins the Kasell family.

Little Rosie joins the Prellwitz family.

Ziggy Stardust is adopted by the Blumbergs.

Montana joins the Swartz family.

Lots of big smiles as Piper joins the Walsh family.

Barrister will be an armful indeed for the Farzan family.

Maggie Lutsk will be the special companion for her owner.

Ms. Sadie Benz and her Guardian Family.

Enjoy your babies as you all venture into the world of puppydom!  It is challenging but incredibly rewarding.  :+)
