The Two Available

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We have a lot to be thankful for. And someone would be really thankful for one of our two available puppies… 😉

We have “Curly Locks” and “Smokey. ”

Curly Locks is our so-cute-she-almost-looks-fake female puppy with white hair that is super curly. She is a sweetie pie. Actually she and Smokey have very similar temperaments, both sweet, not super outgoing, but not really shy either.


Smokey is our short tailed blue merle handsome boy. He has a flashy white chest patch and a white belly. He is also pretty curly, and wont be shedding once his adult hair comes in. He will likely lighten a little with age and turn to a more silver than gray color. (although he will retain some of those dark patches where he isn’t merled.)


Please call/text me for prices and to talk about which one might be right for you. (530) 736-9026. They will be ready to go early December. They will have their first vet appointment probably next week.


Teaching the puppies actual good habits

Since it is wet muddy and not super puppy friendly outside, the puppies spend most of the day romping in the dog room. They still nurse a few times a day and have transitioned to hard puppy food.

I tape down puppy pads to the floor and then cover with shavings, the idea is to represent outside conditions. When I let them out of their box in the morning they go and use their toilet, and continue to use it thoughout the day. Then in the evening they go back to the box to sleep and I clean it up, disinfect the whole floor and we start over the next morning. This should make crate training and potty training happen quickly for you. 🙂 They are so smart, and SO fun. 🙂


These Cutiepies

Here are a whole lot of pictures from the daily romp around the dog room. Gosh they are cute! They are also at that age where they are beginning to try out their “protective” skills and like to bark at anything that moves, and it is such a kick to watch! I am starting to see personalities really bloom now. We have the very brave Olaf and Smokey, we have the mid range Pickles, Nat, Button, and Curly Locks, and then we have the more shy Faye (Peach girl) and Silver. But they all are super fun and friendly. (and the shy ones cuddle really well 😉 ) I love the slight range in personality. It’s fun!

I will be leaving next Tuesday, and be gone through the following Tuesday (7th through 14th) so don’t expect a blog post between those dates, however I will try to post soon after I return. Josh (my husband) will be taking care of the dogs and puppies while I am away, as well as Annie and Sarah who will make sure they gets loves snuggles and play time. Heidi will be coming with me to visit my sister. It will be great! She and her husband live in Hawaii so I don’t get to see her often. This will be my first (maybe only) trip to Hawaii! Try not to feel too bad for me. 🙂 And Heidi and I and all our pasty white skin will have to be sun-screened to the max! I’ve always said that when my freckles grow together I will have a tan. Until then I go from pasty to lobster and back again. Unfortunately, Heidi inherited that condition as well. Annie and Sarah have Josh’s awesome olive tone that tans.

Feel free to call or text if you need me. I will be in daily contact with Josh so he will keep me updated on how everything and everyone is.
