Happy National Dog Day!
To the Sweetest, Best, and Happiest little girl we could ever ask for!!! We ♥️ you Mollie!
Overdue Update and Litter Announcement
As my kids have entered their middle and high school years, I need to scale back our breeding program significantly. This isn’t an easy decision to make, but I will be rehoming my older females. If you are interested, please contact me. Historically, I haven’t charged much, sometimes nothing, for those dogs retiring from our program.
Meet Ace – 5.5 Month Old Started Labrador
This is Ace, a 5.5 month only yellow male that is in our started dog program. Ace is a sweet dog that loves to retrieve from our Indi x Rex litter born 6/16/21. He is listed under our Started Dog page. Call for additional information or to schedule a time to meet him, 208-451-0523.
Booker – Willow and Rico 3 YO
Booker has been an amazing member of our family for the last three years. He was the runt of his litter, but has turned into a near perfect 60-65lb boy who loves fetch, adventures, and hates being more than 10 feet away. He also gets along great with his 10lb brother and cat sister.
Happy 1st Birthday Mollie… We love you!!!
Our sweet Bella
We are enjoying our sweet and sassy Bella so much! Her new big sister has had her life turned upside down after being an only dog for several years (including having to share her beds), but is loving every minute of it!
This poor girl is loaded down with puppies, but that doesn’t deter her love of retrieving or the water. She probably relishes the weightless feeling she enjoys while swimming. Her trademark launch into the water is now a bit awkward and cumbersome. We are anxiously awaiting the announcement of her puppies and look forward to meeting you. Until then, enjoy Willow.
Scheduling Puppy Selections and Helpful Information
We know that you are in the seemingly longest part of this process. The puppies are healthy and so much fun as they begin to play and explore. They are now eating moistened puppy food and Indi’s food when they can sneak a bite.
We have started scheduling dates for you to visit and select your puppy. We will contact you as soon as the prior pick is set so we can schedule your visit. We have many people traveling significant distances so it’s important that we schedule as quickly as possible so travel plans can be arranged. Scheduling timely, sequential visits is important and challenging so we appreciate your patience and flexibility.
With COVID concerns, here are some details of your visit that may alleviate some lingering questions. Your visit and selection will be conducted outdoors on fifteen rural acres. In the event of rain, we have a large outdoor covered area. I will not be providing masks nor do I require them. You will be greeted warmly…from a distance. If you don’t feel well or have a fever, contact me so we can develop an alternate plan.
The puppies are on Nature’s Domain Puppy Food that I get at Costco. I will send you home with a quart bag so that you can transition onto your preferred puppy food. By the time they go home, they are on dry puppy food.
I will have the puppy purchase agreements completed for you with all current and updated information including the health records.
The puppies will be on a gravity feeder before going home so they have access to as much food as they need. We recommended offering full bowls of food a few times a day and removing the bowl after your puppy eats and loses interest. The intent is to minimize the chance of a food-obsessed dog. If at some point the dog is unable to self manage a healthy weight, the quantity of food will have to be restricted.
The first of the vaccination series will have been given at six weeks and will need to continue at regular intervals until the age of sixteen weeks. The intervals will vary by the vaccine manufacturer, but generally are every two to four weeks.
For final payment we only accept cash or credit cards with the additional 3% processing fee. I can send a Paypal invoice prior your your visit or swipe a credit card during the visit. If paying with credit card, paying the invoice prior to your visit simplifies the pick up process and minimizes contact.
Depending on the county mosquito abatement spraying schedule, mosquitoes can be plentiful, we do have mosquito repellant available if needed.
The Affects of COVID-19 On Our Process
I know how difficult it is to wait to meet/choose your long-awaited puppy and I appreciate your patience as we try to minimize excessive interactions. Please contact me if you have any questions.
