Frankie/Kali girls 3 weeks
They are doing great! I have 1 little girl (yellow/green) that must have been concieved from the 1st AI breeding and not the surgical. She was 8 oz at birth, 1/2 of everyone else and developmentally about 3 days behind. Eyes opened later etc. But boy is she a fighter. She fights the big girls for the milk bar but i still supplement her. Cant wait to watch her personality develop.

To all my puppy families awaiting puppies from the current 3 litters:
I appologize for not doing my normal weekly posts and updates. Ive never had 24 puppies before at one time. Im working day and night to keep them all happy and healthy. Shelbys litter is 3.5 weeks old and will be starting food this weekend and litter box training. Twyla's litter of 3 are 1.5 weeks and look like big fat potato's. Twyla is helping Kali with nursing duties of Kali's 13. One of the boys is still requiring around the clock care and handfeeding. Were not out of the woods with him yet but every day we make it the odds look a little better. I still have potentially 1 boy and 1 girl available but that wont be determined for another week or so. If you have subitted an application please be patient, i am truley using all my energy and love to care for these babies. Here are a few photos. Enjoy and thank you all for being patient.

FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A REPUTABLE BREEDER!: Copied from another breeder.
POTENTIAL OWNER: How much is the puppy?
BREEDER: $2,500 - $3500
POTENTIAL OWNER: What?? It's way too expensive!!
BREEDER: What do you think would be a good price?
POTENTIAL OWNER: No more than $500. You breeders are so over priced.
BREEDER: I am sorry you see it this way, why don't you try it yourself?
POTENTIAL OWNER: But I've never done it!
BREEDER: For FREE I can teach you how to do it, and in addition you will have the knowledge to do it again.
POTENTIAL OWNER: Perfect, thank you!
BREEDER: To start you will need a female(average cost $3000 and up). Also a male (average cost $3000 and up) or semen (average $1000 and up). You will need to show them to their championship to show they meet the breed standard(cost from $3000 on up with handling fees, travel & expenses). You will need to do genetic & health testing on them, averages about $1000 per dog. Raise and provide daily care, feeding & grooming for 2 years. (So minimal $200 per month)
POTENTIAL OWNER: But I don't have that much money...
BREEDER: For $500 you can raise a litter and then keep one of the puppies. Obviously, you will pay the cost of whelping & care.
POTENTIAL OWNER: I can do that.
BREEDER: OK so I have a female due to whelp in 2 weeks. You will need to be available 24/7 around the clock for at least 8 weeks to help with delivery and care.
POTENTIAL OWNER: Eight weeks?? it's way too much time for me! I have to work.
BREEDER: You will also need the reproductive vet to do xrays($200-$500), possibly progesterone testing($75-$250) & C-section($1000-$5000) and initial vet care on pups until old enough to be placed.
Have on hand a scale, thermometer, exam gloves, sanitizer, absorbent tissues, scissors, hemostats, heating pad, whelping box, blankets, cleaning supplies, appropriate food with supplements for mothers, formula, medications & hand feeding supplies in case of emergency....Training equipment, xpens & crates, grooming supplies & table plus dryer.
POTENTIAL OWNER: But I don't have all these things!
BREEDER: For $1000-2000 you can buy them.
POTENTIAL OWNER: Ummm .... You know, I think it might be better if I just buy a puppy.
BREEDER: Wise decision.
For us breeders there are no vacations or holidays, while you go to visit with family & friends we are home at our dogs side caring for them. It is a no breaks commitment.
THIS IS THE REALITY
When you choose a professional you don't only pay for the puppy but also:
Tools, knowledge, experience, love, time, sacrifices, etc.
Respect the breeders who are doing it right, they aren't greedy, and seldom come out ahead on a litter after you figure out the labor and expenses involved.
BTW, my feed bill is more like 400-500/month right now.

(one day late) Happy 10th birthday to the "4" litter! Arizona would love to hear from any of her siblings if they still check in here.
Happy 9th birthday to the "4" litter (yesterday)! If any of the siblings are online please share a photo; we'd love to say hi!

Arizona Mojito is an absolute joy of a companion. She's spent this last year learning to be a big sister to Toothless Whiskey & is so gentle with him, even when he doesn't deserve it 😆. Put a Frisbee or a Pool in front of her & you'd never know she was nine. Her smile is a gift every day and we are so blessed we've had 9 years of them. Thanks Powderhorn Golden Retrievers for this gift of a Golden.
Happy 8th Birthday (3 days belated) to the "4" litter! And thank you to Powderhorn Golden Retrievers for starting Arizona's life off so well & setting her up for success. She's been such a blessing to our home & we love her with our whole hearts.
Happy 7th Birthday to the "4 litter"! Arizona continues to be the best part of our day, every day. She has such a happy spirit and her golden smile is just pure joy! She gives the best cuddles, thinks ice cubes are delicious treats, loves chasing any bunnies who cross her path, and still thinks life's too much fun to stop and pose for photos most of the time. Thank you Cindy & Powderhorn Golden Retrievers for breeding so responsibly and sharing this little girl with us. She is an absolute treasure.

Also, if any of the 4's are in the Kansas City area please let me know. We'd love to meet up!
This is no joke folks. Please do not feed grain free. If you need suggestions as to what to feed, please contact me. This is deadly.
Nash...on the road to Westminster...
Please take the time to watch and educate yourselves.
Team Brodie (Beau-D/Yoki) won 8th Place in the AKC National Royal Canin Obedience Classic Masters Division in Orlando, Florida this weekend.
Brodie (Beau-d/Yoki) had an awesome weekend at the Greater Monroe Kennel Club Obedience Trials. (NC) Placements Friday and Saturday. Today, we placed second in Utility B (197.5) and first in Open B (199). We also went High in Trial and High Combined. We earned many OTCh points over the weekend. The High in Trial earned us a spot in the Golden Retriever Club of America’s (OBHF) Obedience Hall of Fame. We found out also this weekend that we are on the invitee list for February 2019 Westminster Kennel Club Obedience in NY.
