We may not have pups at the moment, but we are busy, busy!

Maintenance and upgrades are being worked on.  Our house is being repainted and hubby is busy making a new ramp that leads from the pup room to the outdoor playground.  It is time to pressure wash all the pavers and turf for the upcoming litter and to clean all the equipment.  It is nice to have this block of time to get these jobs done.

In the meantime, Daisy is doing great and getting more and more 'round'.  She will have her x-ray soon (week or so) and then it won't be long before pups are here!

Finally, enjoying some downtime. :+)

Right after all the pups were in their homes, our son and his family came to visit for a few days.  We thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the chaos that four beautiful granddaughters bring.  Certainly exhausted as four girls 8 years and under are busy, busy, busy!  Thank goodness for our town's playground just up the road. Lots of fun going down slides with babes in my lap and playing chase with the tickle monster (our son).  A visit to the beach (brrrrrr... the water is freezing) but kids and Gramps did not care - they dunked!  Pennsylvania does not offer really fresh lobsters, so they were a must along with some great cheesecake.  A whirlwind for sure but great memories shared.  :+)

Daisy will be due with her babes around July 7th, so I have a bit of a break for three weeks or so.  Then 'all hands on deck' once again!  There is still availability in that litter if it ends up being as large as predicted.

I am not breeding anyone this fall or winter (new prospective breeding doodles not ready yet) so I will embrace my puppy break during the holiday season; however excited about welcoming Maine's summer season! 

Wishing the current new owners fun times with their pups and a safe and enjoyable summer season.

The CHARLOTTE X WYATT Litter have all gone home!

Lincoln met his new family yesterday evening and it was love at first sight!  :+)  The Kingstons have two other ADNE labradoodles and decided to add a third - now they have a cream, a caramel and a chocolate doodle!

Now I can finally post pics of the pups and their new families!

Jaiga Arnold with Brenda!

Deb snuggling with Frosty Staudacher.

Auggie Witherbee with Roz and Jonathan.
Our Saturday pick up group.  Everyone with big smiles!

Sunday morning, the Smiths came to bring Jasper Bear aka Jazzie home.

Last night, Lincoln (Noah), met the Kingstons for a new adventure.

There will always be a few bumps in the road as everyone gets to acclimate to each other but it always smooths out.  I am here to help you along the way and always feel free to contact me for anything.  I wish all these new families lots of sloppy kisses and laughter as they all negotiate puppydom!

Lincoln will be going to his new home tonight.

Previously known as "Noah", I will be meeting his family in Portsmouth, NH as he joins two other ADNE doodles - Winston and Ranger.  I am so happy that he has two new 'bros' to be with as Lincoln really likes to be close to other dogs.  :+)

Since he is so good about doing potty every two hours, he gets to be with all the other doodles and loves it.

Charlotte x Wyatt Go Home pics will be posted on Monday night or Tuesday morning!

I had three pick ups today and one for early tomorrow and the last one Monday night.  They will be posted as soon as possible but I want to do it all together rather than adding them.  Stay tuned!

Till then, I am posting this pic of our oldest son, Jebb, playing with the pups earlier today,  :+)

We are going home this weekend...well..most of us! Charlotte x Wyatt - WEEK NINE!

And... they are becoming rascals!  Full of energy and mischief!  Typical puppies at last.  :+)  I was thankful for the cloudy day as it allowed me to take pics in the afternoon - I had too many errands to run earlier in the day.

They are growing soooo much!  Except for little Jazzie, they are all truly a lapful.  Tomorrow, they will have baths in anticipation of their big day on Saturday.  We want them looking and smelling wonderful.  :+)

All their packets are done and ready for travel.  Whew.

JAIGA!  The only one in a large planting pot because I could not keep up with him.  9 lbs.

LINCOLN aka 'Link' is going to a pet home.  10  3/4 lbs.

JAZZIE!  The resident mini in the litter.  6  3/4 lbs.

AUGGIE!  Bigger than Noah but weighs just a smidgen less at 10  1/2 lbs.

FROSTY!  Sitting pretty as a picture on top of her 'mountain'.  8 lbs.


Daisy and I went to my vet this morning to have an ultra sound to confirm pregnancy - she is pregnant alright - with a minimum of 8 but more than likely more!  Oi, oi, oi!  Not what I was expecting with just one natural breeding!  I guess the stars were aligned and gifted Daisy with a load of fertile eggs and Wyatt with a basketful of sperm!

So happy that I don't have any other girls being bred for a while as I will have my hands full.  Also, grateful that the weather will still be great for lots of outside time for the pups.

Whelping is expected in early July and pups should be going home in mid September.  We certainly have room for more applicants in this litter.  This certainly took me by surprise.  :+)
