Mocha went into heat last week, and she and Whiskey have been busy trying to make some puppies for the last couple days. We will schedule an ultrasound soon that will take place in about a month. If the ultrasound shows a viable pregnancy, puppies would be due roughly around March 15 (give or take 3-5 days), and they would most likely go home May 6th or May 13th. Here are some pictures of pups from a previous Whiskey and Mocha pairing at around 6 months old, which is suppose to be the “awkward” growth stage, but I think these sweeties make that stage look great!

Surprise! August Was Busy!
First we would like to say that Wrecks and Astraea completed their Embark genetic tests and they are completely clear of everything Golden Retriever oriented including Ichthyosis, PRCD, PRA1, and PRA2 along with dozens of other tests that can be found on their Embark profiles for those interested. Wrecks completed and passed his OFA Hips, Elbows, Heart, and Patella X-Rays, and both Astraea and Wrecks have their yearly eye exams scheduled for a couple weeks from today. We’re so excited and proud! We also want to announce that Astraea went into heat MONTHS before she was expected to, and progesterone tests indicate that she did indeed ovulate. We will confirm the hoped for pregnancy at the end of September. She and Wrecks were exhaustive in their efforts to create a litter, and they simply adore one another. What a year this has been! If this pregnancy is successful, pups will be born around Halloween and will go home right before Christmas! We are now accepting deposits again!
The Process has Begun!
Carmel is officially in heat. We’ll begin progesterone testing soon to figure out the best date for breeding. It looks like it might happen right around Thanksgiving. We’re loving the new website, but we’re still working out kinks. If you notice a typo or something on the menu isn’t working, please let us know, and we’ll get it fixed as soon as possible. Yay for puppy season!
