Happy Owners

I truly believe that a lot can be said about those who are passionate about what they do. Taylor is not your ordinary run of the mill breeder. When you research into potential breeders you stumble upon a lot of them who are all claiming the same things and it’s hard to differentiate and know if they are really all the things they claim or if they are just good at letting you see the things they want you to see. My boyfriend and I decided to get our little guy, Kingston, who is a JLo/Koa pup from Taylor and we are so lucky and happy we did. From the very beginning, Taylor maintained open and honest communication and feedback with us. We didn’t know if we were ready to be dog owners and if our lifestyle could accommodate raising a dog and she talked us through and helped us think about all the factors involved and what raising a dog requires from financial responsibilities to schedules to time etc. Taylor is passionate not just about the breeding process but about each individual dog that leaves her home and rightly so. She invests so much of her time helping with early development and training from the moment the puppies are born to the very moment they leave and has remained a constant help and resource to us up until now (Kingston is already over 6 months now!) Taylor kept us updated on a daily basis through Snapchat posts, YouTube videos and a shared photo album. I don’t know many people who have ultrasound photos or videos of their dogs minutes after they were born but we do! She accommodated us visiting the puppies whenever we wanted even if it was a Friday night after the end of a long work day. In bringing Kingston home, Taylor set us up with everything that we needed to make the transition into our home an easy one. My friends and family with dogs have always commented that they have never had that kind of care or attention with the breeders they went with! I highly recommend Taylor and I do recommend her to everyone I encounter who comments on how adorable, loving and well-adjusted/behaved Kingston is. As much as I could write about how great Taylor and the whole experience was and is, Kingston is the true testament to what true passion and love can produce and that all started with Taylor. The time she spent with him in his early development has made him who he is. We love him so much and have Taylor to thank. We seriously can’t recommend her enough!

We had an amazing experience with Taylor from Day 1. Everything she does and says communicates her love of dogs and her desire to ensure the puppies go home with high quality families. I appreciated her availability to answer the questions we had and that she gladly allowed us to visit the puppies as often as we wanted. The puppies were always exceptionally clean and kept in her home, providing them with much training and socialization.  We brought home a very well-adjusted, happy puppy who was ready to become a member of our family. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a top-quality dog!

Taylor and Andru are wonderful breeders and people. You get that personal touch that you don’t get with most breeders. They have lots of love to give to their doggies and all the newborn pups. We are in love with Amelia and grateful for our new friends (both dogs and people)❤️

Doodles Visit Santa Claus in Seattle!

20 Dec

Santa

We took the girls to see Santa yesterday! It was challenging to get everyone still and looking in the direction of the camera but it was fun.

JLo is in his left hand; she was 14 weeks yesterday and barely fit in her size small Santa suit. Apple is in his right hand. Beyonce and Shakira are sitting  on the ground. I never thought I’d be bringing the dogs to sit on Santa’s lap but I love this picture and I’m pretty sure this won’t be the last time!

We have puppies!

This gallery contains 7 photos.

Last night we could see Beyonce was having contractions and we took her temperature and it was down to 98.9 so we were most likely going to have a puppies come in the middle of the night. I tried to nap during the day and we got her bed set up in the bathroom as […]

Final Days of Pregnancy for Beyonce

11 Dec

a2I hope that by this time next week Beyonce will have her mini goldendoodle puppies! She is still a happy girl but I can tell this extra weight is getting old and it is harder for her to jump up on our bed or the couch for cuddles so I’m coming down to the floor more and more. Beyonce’s heat cycle started on Oct 10th (9 weeks ago) and her first date with Gizmo was on Oct 17th. I took her for X-rays on December 3rd and Dr Raja said he saw at least 5 puppies however since we had the appointment a little early (Dr Raja’s wife is about to have a baby and he’ll be out) he said there is a possibility of more than 5. Here are the X-rays as well as her on the couch this morning showing her belly. I think she might just be 21 pounds now which is really big considering she is normally 15. I think the side view, 1st X-ray is easier to count – look for the head and spine. How many do you see?!

 

Brinkley Update

10 Dec

Brinkley was one of Shakira‘s mini double doodle puppies born on August 18, 2014. Brinkley was the smallest of the litter and the only puppy with a straight coat. He was adopted by Craig and Susan who were looking for a small dog and favored the straighter coat/ lab look over the curls.

Susan sent me a message to say Brinkley is 5 lbs now, thinking he’ll be around 11 lbs. He’s a dream. He sleeps all night, goes to the door and barks when he needs to go out, is learning to sit. He still doesn’t like to go for walks, just sits and look cute.

She also attached this adorable pic of Brinkley under their tree. So happy to see everyone is happy and we found a good fit!
