JLo/Koa June 2017 Puppies 

26 Apr

This weekend our four JLo/Koa mini double doodles went home. I’ve been posting pictures on Instagram and Facebook but I wanted to share here on the blog in case you aren’t following on those social sites. I think it’s also fun to see how absolutely adorable they get and show all of their weekly pictures in one place. I’m gonna start with the most recent which was their pick up day and work my way backwards to week 1:

Then 7 weeks old:

Easter! Which was actually 6 weeks and 6 days but I wanted to use the cute Easter props I purchased

iCloud Shared Albums

15 Apr

When I first started out in 2014 someone commented that I posted too many pictures on Facebook. When I purchased my dogs I hated that I never got ENOUGH pics so that comment really surprised me but I figured if one person felt that way then there are others that agree. I was telling my husband Andru about this and he suggested creating iCloud shared albums. If you don’t know about this feature I’m about to change your world! 


This is from JLo and Koa’s last litter. By the time they went home I had shared over ONE THOUSAND pictures with those 6 families! I know that had to feel amazing because I’m currently waiting on a new puppy and she was 8 weeks old yesterday and I have received maybe 15 picture maximum. 


This album is from JLo and Koa’s current litter and they will be 7 weeks old in just 2 days so I’ll be adding to the album and beating the number of pics from our last litter of 6 and this is only 4 puppies!! 

These albums are in addition to the daily snaps I add on Snapchat (also saved on YouTube) and the puppy cam going 24/7. I really want families to be able to see their puppies as they grow and have those memories forever. 

I think this is just one example of the extra things that I do for my families that is above what other breeders are doing and I love being able to provide so many memories for my new families. 

I bet you can find a use for shared albums too. I’ve also used these when on vacation with a friend so we can both add our pictures to the same album, also spending a few hours at the lavender festival ended up with hundreds of beautiful pictures. Andru and I have used it many times for different dog picks (for example Easter shots or we’ve done Christmas, Hanukkah) and we also have a shared folder for pics of his son. If you don’t know how to use it give it a quick google. 

Easter 2017

15 Apr

I wanted to get some Easter pics of the girls. I see so many adorable pics on Instagram now, I’m amazed at the talented, creative people taking adorable pics of their dogs. 

I know my husband takes WAY BETTER pics and I still can’t figure out the “depth effect” on my iPhone 7 plus so I asked him if he could also take a few. Wow! Of course his are way better!!! Aren’t these girls so cute! I wish we had Shakira and Rihanna here for pics today 



Drake

03 Feb

UPDATE: Drake is living with Murphy now, a Beyonce puppy born 7/25/15 and they are already sharing the bed and best friends.

Our future Mr Right is in need of a guardian home. We are calling him Drake since it goes with the theme we already have AND how convenient is it that Rihanna was dating Drake and now JLo is and we will most likely use this boy with our Rihanna and JLo sometime in 2018.

Please contact me if you are interested in being a guardian family. It is rare I will have this opportunity with a male. The best part is I bring the girls to your house for a “date” as our place is a little hectic to focus one 1:1 “romance” between the dogs. He also does not need to be here to take care of puppies so less time having your pup away from home.

If a female is more appealing there is a chance we can make that work too but it will probably be closer to the end of 2017 but contact me and we can discuss. Thanks! ❤

Puppies Need Patience!

30 Dec

Back in October, the weekend we had our 3rd reunion planned, the news started reporting about an upcoming record breaking storm. One of my families sent me this text which is just awful and at the same time hilarious (because it didn’t happen to ME I can find it hilarious) 


My first reaction was that this pic wasn’t real or just something she found on the internet but sure enough it was very real. Kim has a JLo/Koa puppy, Kingston. Kim was running errands preparing for Stormageddon 2016 and she said she left Kingston in the car alone for maybe 15 minutes MAX and came out to see this mess. He had pooped in the car and then ran all over getting it EVERYWHERE!!

I love that Kim was able to immediately joke about the situation because honestly my first reaction would probably not be laughter. 

I just wanted to share because I do expect something like this to happen to every new dog owner. It might not be this extreme but I want to be sure you know that in addition to all of the adorable pics and cuddly moments with your new dog there is bound to be a little chaos too and I need you to be prepared for that. Keep in mind that I will be here for support and when you are ready for it – some laughs. 

JLo/Koa Puppies Are 3 Weeks Old

15 Jul

Puppies were 3 weeks old on Thursday July 14 and will be moving downstairs in the next few days and starting litter box training. I post everyday on snapchat and move to YouTube but thought I’d add to my website. I’m sorry we do not have any puppies available and will not until Spring 2017 when we do a repeat of this litter. 

Here are pictures of the green collar boy. He was 1 pound 10 ounces…


Here is the blue collar boy. He was 2 pounds 2 ounces 


Here is the purple collar girl, she was one pound 6.7 ounces 


Here is the red collar girl, she was 1 pound 10.4 ounces 


Here is the yellow collar boy, he was 1 pound 9.1 pounces 


And here is the black collar boy, he was 1 pound 5.8 ounces 

JLo is expecting 5 Puppies

22 Jun

We took JLo in to see Dr Raja on Friday for an X-ray and he said she should have 4-5 puppies but he feels pretty confident that it is 5. She is due right around Monday June 27th but I’ll update once puppies arrive. We are excited!!! 

Beyoncé/Chewy puppies are 8 weeks old today

01 May

I feel like I say this with every litter but wow, the time has flown by! Beyonce’s puppies are 8 weeks old today and it is time for them to head out to be with their families. Now that my litters are reserved so far in advance I haven’t been very good at updating my “available puppies” page since I actually don’t have any puppies available but since I’ll be doing a repeat breeding with the two dogs I wanted to show these cuties off.


What Is The Best Dog Bed

20 Mar

  
I made new covers today! Sunday fun day!

I’ve been asked about our dog beds a lot and wanted to share my tip to having the best dog bed. I buy ours at Fred Meyer around Christmastime for maybe $25 per bed but I feel any bed will work the secret really is the garbage bag inside and the homemade cover. 

Inside of the beds, the stuffing, is kept together in a fairly flimsy mesh type of pillow case but as long as the stuffing is kept in some type of case it will work. Take the case out and put a large, yard waste size heavy duty trash bag around the stuffing or “guts” of your dog’s bed – our beds are large enough that I end up using two bags. This way if there is ever a situation like an accidental pee, throw up, etc you aren’t scrambling to salvage your bed from absorbing the smell/liquid. Now put the store bought cover back on the bed, this is almost always washable and I do wash ours from time to time. I go to goodwill and buy a twin size flat sheet for around $3 and make another cover to go over the original and see a few strips of Velcro at the top to close it up (that part is optional). This keeps the dogs from chewing at the bed to get the stuffing out and makes it easy to clean up when I give them marrow bones which can be very messy (a little bloody even) or if JLo brings some of her raw food over to her bed to eat. Beyonce unexpectedly had her last litter on the dog beds and everything washed out just fine. The only reason I replaced the covers today is these were about 2 years old and I bought some bones from Chewy dot com that were a little greasy and the spots on the cover looked like pee spots when they were caught on video or in pictures (especially the darker pink on the right in the before pic). These covers should last you for awhile, they really increase the life of the dog bed and the ability to clean the bed. Many visitors have commented that our house doesn’t smell like dog and I think that is mostly the raw food diet but I’m sure frequently washing their beds helps too. Don’t buy a white sheet because you’ll be surprised how dirty it will get and the reason I get the twin size is because it is less work for me because I’m not very good at sewing. 

Also…don’t be disappointed if your dogs prefer the cold, hard floor instead of a nice fluffy bed. That happens a lot here! 😃
