It’s a great life in Oregon, raising labradoodle puppies!

THIS IS AN ARCHIVE BLOG – 2017

It’s a great life in Oregon, raising labradoodle puppies! Doodling around and blogging as we go. . .

February 18, 2017 -This week we focused on more socialization and conditioning the pups. Baths, towel drying, the blow-dryer (on high!), a coffee grinder, sudden clapping, music, and vacuuming are ways that we used to prepare them for life. A treat during blow drying helps them to realize that uncomfortable things are not harmful or scary, reducing the risk of potential future anxieties. The pups are becoming confident. 🙂

February 17, 2017 – Here’s just a snapshot of pups in our laps last night. This is the fun and easiest part of breeding puppies. It appears they are enjoying it too!

February 14, 2017- Happy Valentine’s Day! The pups are now four weeks old. They’re teeth are coming in, so we’ve introduced them to kibble. They’ve had their first wormings and they’re starting to take an interest in toys.  We started litter box training to help them understand there is a place to do potty. They are learning to respect their sleep and play areas. I just need to say, they are so cute! Here they are, posing nicely for their photo shoot.  🙂

February 9, 2017 – Ella’s pups have opened their eyes, are walking around, and starting to become curious with the few toys that we’ve placed in their pen. They’re still nursing and all have a nice, plump body structure – mama is feeding them well! They like to be held and they make their way over to be picked up. Totally cute! Every one of them.

January 28, 2017 – Emery’s pups are seven weeks old! Here they are with a bit more detail about each as we’ve seen their personalities start to shine. We love them all! Everyone of them has an amazing temperament. This is where we see the hard work pay off. Socialized (lots!), emotionally conditioned and they are confident, yet calm. So pleased. (A couple of these pups are still available.) I think each of the pups won the hearts of the families that visited today.

January 27, 2017 – Emery’s pups all did well with their surgeries today. The vet gave them all a good report. They’ve had wormings, nails trimmed, vaccines and microchips. They came home hungry and spent the evening playing and relaxing in their pen. Getting ready to wind down our final week with them. We’ll be working on crate training a little bit each day.

January 25, 2017 – As Emery’s litter is still being cared for by our dear friends, Emery’s guardian family, I’m enjoying Ella and Basil’s new litter.  We’ve started the Bio-Sensor program with them and Ella trusted me to take each of her puppies away from her for a few minutes to take individual pictures in the natural light of the kitchen window. She kept an eye on me though! At one week old, you can see that their pigmentation is starting to darken (some have black noses now) and they’ve nearly doubled their weight. Colors are apricot, caramel, red and cream.

Here they are, officially named the “Characters of the Bible Litter”: Noah, Esther, Moses, Elijah, Mary, Abraham, Martha, Ruth and Isaac.

January 22, 2017 – Ella’s Puppies on day five are growing stronger, eating well and are more and more active. Ella is such a good mama, making our job super easy at this point. She is so careful not to step or lay on a pup! This is huge. Often, larger dogs (like Ella) will lay on their puppies, crushing them, and it makes it where they need 24/7 supervision. I actually got to sleep in my bed last night, able to trust Ella. They sleep under a heat lamp as it’s critical that we keep their body temperatures up. Here they are!

January 18, 2017 – Today I’m thankful for the excellent care of Emery’s litter, knowing they are safely being handled by Emery’s guardian family. With that in mind, we could focus on whelping Ella’s litter that arrived early this morning, a day or two early. We love the excitement of each and every new litter, but we prefer focusing on one litter at a time! Our Ella delivered nine puppies: four girls and five boys. Colors range from cream, caramel, red and apricot (they’re not nearly as light as the picture on the left seems to show.) All pups are nursing and doing well. Ella seems so happy. She’s a great mama. We have mamas deliver their pups in a kiddie pool (easier to clean) and now we’ll move them to the official whelping pen tonight. I’ll be sleeping on the floor near Ella and the pups for the next week to make sure mama doesn’t crush anybody.

January 16, 2017 Emery’s Litter:  We love watching the pups in the pen. They’re so alert watching everything going on around them. The pups are often carried around the house to experience different sights and sounds of a home. We don’t want timid pups! When they get home, their families will continue the socializing and positive reinforcement. We’re raising well-adjusted, emotionally conditioned pups that will reflect confident, loving behaviors for life. Here’s a few pictures of a couple of the cuties.

January 14, 2017 – The pups turned five weeks old today. They’re using their litter box with very few accidents. They are getting cuter every day as their coats fill in and they’re gaining weight! Here they are at five weeks old.

January 8, 2017 – The puppies moved into their new bin and already they are using the litter box!  The pups are all continuing to gain weight and are all weighing between three and four pounds. Georgianna started as the smallest in the litter and has passed up two other puppies in size and weight. She’s a good eater! They’ve had their first worming and are enjoying their Fromm’s puppy kibble. Here are their four-week pictures that we took today.

January 7, 2017 – The puppies turned four weeks old today. They will be transitioning this week from the whelping pen into a full size pen that can accommodate a litter box and give them more room to play. This is a big step where they quickly learn that there is a specific place to do potty business, and they learn not to soil their play or sleep area. They should be potty trained within several days. As one or two pups catch on, they all quickly follow. Today was a busy day of building the new larger pen and introducing them to new toys and kibble. Mama Emery is tiring of nursing and slowing down a bit in feeding them (normal as the pups start developing teeth!), so they will begin having kibble four times a day, in between their nursing. Here are a few pictures we snapped with a cell phone today, and better individual pictures will be posted soon.  Everyone in the family is enjoying getting to know this litter! Each puppy is special.

December 31, 2016 – The puppies have their eyes and ears wide open now and are at a new stage of awareness. We’ve moved into what experts call a new phase for learning conditional emotional responses. We take each phase seriously as we use positive reinforcements to help condition the puppies to new experiences and typical household noises. We want them to be exposed to small amounts of stress (like we did with their Bio-Sensor programming) for positive conditioning before they develop fear response, which happens at the 5 week marker. Blowdryers, vacuums, music, etc. placed near or around them while they are feeling safe and secure with us and mama, helps them become more immune to stressors in the future. We want our puppies to be strengthened against possible destructive anxieties and fears that can cause behavioral problems well into their adult lives. We continue with lots of human interaction and holding. We keep introducing them to various people to continue their important socialization.

Here they are at three weeks old today!

December 26, 2016 – The pups are already getting lots of socialization and holding. They are being loved and held regularly, and being introduced to different people. That, along with the bio-sensor program, is setting a great foundation for these puppies already. Here they are at two weeks old.

Here are some pictures of our “Pride and Prejudice” litter after Week One. Their noses have all darkened now and eyes will be open by next week. We can’t wait! Here they are:

We are excited about this litter and thrilled that Emery is a great mama, making things a easier for the humans involved.  🙂  We welcome this “Pride and Prejudice” litter:  Darcy, Elizabeth, Bennet, Jane, Wickham, Georgianna, Fitzwilliam, Bingley and Collins. Here are some updated pictures of the litter.

December 10, 2016 – Pups arrived!  After a long night of labor, nine new puppies from Basil and Emery have been welcomed into our world. We are a bit surprised at the number of black pups in this litter, but sometimes things are different than we expected. All pups and mom are doing very well!  Here’s the first quick group photo. More pictures will be coming throughout the process as they change and grow.  There are 4 black males, 3 black females and 2 cream males.

November 10, 2016 – It’s been a busy week with vet appointments, baths and crate training. Today we played with pups in the family room and watched them run through the big tube we picked up for them. We worked on “come” and with some of the older ones. They caught on pretty quick that I had treats and they came running for their reward. We’re getting the older pups used to being in a crate away from the litter, and it’s going well. They’re holding their bladders and then going outside to the dog run to do their business. They’ve been quiet still, except for the morning when they hear me get up and they want their food! Haley’s pups will be leaving very soon.  🙁

November 7, 2016 – Here’s our photo shoot with Molly’s pups. They will be six weeks old tomorrow. So cute and getting cuter every day!

November 4, 2016 – It’s been a busy week with wormings, baths, and a vet appointment for Haley’s litter. They were spayed/neutered this morning along with microchips and shots and all went well. Haley’s pups have had some practice with crate training and so far, it’s going well. We make it a positive experience with beef bones and a blanket. They did great on their car ride too. Here are some picutures of Haley’s litter during their 7th week of life. We love these little guys!

October 25, 2016 – Molly’s puppies are now four weeks old. As seems typical, the boys are bigger and more developed, overall. The girls will catch up. They started eating kibble today and they’re starting to learn to use their litter box. I love this age because they now know us and are totally aware of their environment. They make eye contact and watch me and run over to be picked up. Here are the pictures we took today. (Click on the pictures a couple of times to see them enlarged.)

October 18, 2016 – Molly’s litter is three weeks old. They’re playing and moving around a lot and their coats are starting to fill in a bit. Their eyes are wide open as they stare at us when we pick them up. Their weights vary a bit with Celine being the smallest and Elvis being the largest of the litter. Elvis came out strong, and from day one he would move the other pups out of his way to get to mama’s food. They had their first wormings today and they were all weighed again and steadily showing good growth. 🙂 They’re all calm and relaxed when we pick them up. They’ve been handled from the earliest days so they know us.

October 17, 2016 – Haley and Basil’s puppies will be five weeks old tomorrow. They are started on their litter box training to learn to respect their sleep and play areas and to learn to go in a designated spot. It’s going very well! Each pup is so special. Here they are. . . .

October 16, 2016 – Molly’s litter has been moved out of their safe whelping box into a larger space with new toys. They’re starting to venture out of their big dog pile to explore the new pen. They wrestle and play and then end up in a big dog pile again. 🙂 Took a few pictures today.

October 14, 2016 – I love this time when the pups are bonding with me. At four weeks old, Haley’s pup run over whenever they see me and want to be picked up. When held, they fall asleep in my arms. Molly’s litter at two weeks is starting to be comfortable with me and they are walking slowly over to me whenever I come into their whelping pen. They’re so soft and smelling good as their mamas and I help to keep them clean and bathed. Molly’s pups have fully opened their eyes now.

 

October 11, 2016 –  Haley’s litter is four weeks old and doing great!

Both litters are thriving and nursing well. Molly is a bit tired after a long night and surgery, but she’s comfortable and seems happDetails of Molly’s Litter:  10 ps, 5 Girls and colors are 1 Cream/Light caramel, 1 red, 2 black and 1 chocolate. 5 Boys are all black. We gave more blacks than expected, but not disappointed that they will take on the beautiful black coat of their mama, Molly.

Here are some pictures taken of both litters this afternoon. . .

Haley’s pups. Eyes opened yesterday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Noon Update:  Molly had to be taken to the vet hospital for a C-section. She just didn’t seem quite done to me (I know my dog), yet she was resting peacefully. The vet did an ultrasound and found another pup. Pup has been delivered by vet and I’m going back to get mama and newborn to reunite the family. Pups at home are all doing well. Thankfully, our wonderful vet hospital is less than 10 minutes away!  Updates on colors, genders and a group photo coming later.  Maybe after I get an hour or two of sleep!

9 AM: Molly has been in labor since shortly after midnight. She’s had 9 pups so far, a combination of boys and girls: 6 black, 1 apricot/creme, one chocolate and one red/caramel.  We don’t think she’s done. ……  More news later.

Haley’s pups are big! (Or so it seems.) When it’s a small litter, they eat really, really well. No competition for the teats. The exciting news is that Haley’s babies opened their eyes last night. I love it!

September 24, 2016 – All is quiet here. Haley is nursing her pups and the rest of us are waiting for Molly’s pups to arrive.

Molly, Riley and Piper hanging out as we wait.

I’m not letting Molly out of my sight and telling friends and family I can’t leave, they need to come here.  🙂 I’m homebound for the next 10 days, and sleeping downstairs in the family room with Molly tonight. We’re anticipating labor tomorrow but it could be anytime. Molly’s labors are long, like 8+ hours, but praying for it to be in the morning when we’re well rested.
We’re doing the bio-sensor program with Haley’s pups daily and enjoying them.  🙂

September 20, 2016 – Haley’s litter is one week old today. They’ve been doing great and have doubled their weight. Every time I check on them, they are eating. A good thing. They’re crawling around more. Pink pigmentation is turning dark and they’re starting to look more like little dogs. Haley rarely leaves their side. Here’s what they look like today…

All are healthy and nursing well. Haley is proud and seems to be enjoying all of this.  Here they are, our new healthy litter, temporarily named “Sprout,” “Beans,” “Pumpkin,” and “Peapod.”

It’s a time of rest at our house, and we love all the good reports we’re receiving from the great families that trusted us with their next family member. The pups have new names (except for Luke) and they are loving their new people and being loved. We miss them all. Stay in touch!Seven weeks Luke on hardwood

July 27, 2017 – We’re winding down to the time when the pups will all be leaving. This time has gone fast! By Saturday evening, their pen will be empty.   🙁  Meanwhile, we had fun taking pictures of them as they get ready to go home. Here they are at almost 8 weeks old.

July 22, 2016 – The pups are doing well and recovering well from their neuter/spay incision. We’ve worked a bit more on crate training today an it’s going well. We left a crate in their pen with the door open to allow them to go in and out of it to get more and more comfortable with the feel of a crate. At times, I close one of them in there to give them alone time and help them to get used to being confined and enclosed. So far, so good. Everyone’s been pretty accepting of it.

Here are some pictures we took of them today. You can see their shaved bellies and their sore incision. You can see that their coats are continuing to fill in.  🙂 If you click on the individual pictures, you will expand their size.

July 21, 2016 – Yesterday was a big day. We were all up early (5:30 am) to get the pups fed early and ready for their big vet appointment. They had their spay/neuter surgeries, microchipping done, nails trimmed, thorough exams and vaccinations. (They’ve already had 3 wormings in the past few weeks.) They come home at noon, a bit cranky and tired. They rested pretty quietly and by dinner time they were eating and playing happily. One pup, Padme has an issue with her backside and she may require additional medical attention, perhaps even surgery to her rectum area to help her to fully thrive. We’re waiting to hear back from the vet hospital. Whatever Padme needs, we’ll take care of her and we trust the expert opinion of our great vet. She’s a sweetheart and seems so happy, playful and healthy. Sometimes stuff just happens that needs to be taken care of.

The pups are doing great as we introduce them to the crate and car rides. Chewy was the only one who let us know how he felt about the crate. He seems to be more sensitive about stuff, but he too, eventually settled down in the crate and rested quietly. Our dog Riley has always been very vocal about everything (from 3 weeks on) and as an adult, she continues to be our vocal and opinionated dog that loves to talk to us about what she thinks. Not barking at strangers, just talking to us about stuff. She’s always been the most adventurous and confident too, leading the other dogs around the house. Everybody loves her spirit and personality. Perhaps this is Chewy. He seems independent and smart with a mind of his own. It’s fun to see their unique personalities coming out. Our visit to the vet was a true test of their temperaments as they were handled and crated and poked by strangers. I was so impressed and proud of how far they’ve come. Sometimes I worry if we’re doing everything right. Yesterday was a good day.  🙂

July 17, 2016 – Here are a couple of the weird sleeping choices of our pups. Han is sound asleep in the corner with his head up like this. And lately, Rey loves to sleep on top of the litter box. Good thing we clean it regularly! Time for a bath.

Collage six weeks with names

July 14, 2016 – The pups are six weeks old tonight. Time is going really fast. They will have their spay/neuter surgeries and microchips done next week. And then they go home.  🙁  Well, here’s a glimpse of exactly how cute they are. But pictures don’t fully represent their great temperament and how loving they are. They look up at us with these adoring eyes and want to be held and they love just having the opportunity to be carried around with the house. They no longer sleep in a pile, but sleep independently in the weirdest positions sometimes. They love the new toys we keep adding to their pen. They crowd around us, all wanting to be held or pet when we’re near, but I’m already trying to help them understand simple commands like “sit” if they want attention. Here they are….

July 9, 2016 – The puppies are really active and love to wrestle and play with their toys. They’re using the litter box pretty consistently. They’re pretty detached from mama at this point. They’re all weighing in between 4 and 5 pounds.Their coats are filling in more and more each day. They seem to have all their teeth and they eat 4 times a day at this age. Here they are at 5 weeks old:

July 6, 2016 – It’s been a fun week so far. Falling in love again as I get to know each of these pups and we watch them grow. We moved them into their new larger pen after we started them on kibble. They’re doing great at using the litter box and it keeps their pen clean and they stay clean too! We’ve had visitors and we’re making sure the pups get lots of socialization time with people that love to hold them.  Here are a few pictures I took today.

September 21, 2015 –  The puppies are being weighed and found to be growing and gaining weight. Yay! Haley stays close by at ALL times and won’t leave her litter. I’ve spent the last three nights sleeping in the family room with them to make sure everyone continues to do well. Feeling more confident each day that everyone is eating well and progressing as they should. The pups are becoming more vocal and moving around a bit more. The heat lamp keeps them warm (proper body temperature is crucial for newborn pups) while us humans like to have the air conditioning on. Haley is on a strict diet of raw chicken and vegetables, rice and calcium tablets. Good for everybody, not just her!

August 30, 2015 – At 4:30 p.m, Haley’s first puppy arrived! Several hours later, Haley was the proud mama of 6 healthy pups:  two girls and four boys. All are nursing well and mama has not left their side (or barely slept, it appears) for sake of caring for her new babies.  We like to use a theme to temporarily name our litters to help us to remember each and every pup. This litter’s theme is from a show our family loves; “The Office.”  So to announce Haley and Hawk’s beautiful new litter of red puppies in the order that they arrived into the world, please wecome:  Holly, Dwight, Andy, Kelly, Michael and Stanley. Individual photos will be posted here or on the Facebook page weekly.

Oregon labradoodle breeder, reds, standards, Washington and Idaho. August 24, 2015 – Our very special Haley is pregnant and expected to deliver on labradoodle puppies, standard, medium and minis in Oregon and Washington, McMinnville.Monday, August 31st. We’re very excited for another litter after a time of rest for all of us. We carefully selected “Hawk” of Ladd Hill Labradoodles to sire this litter. We spent weeks searching out studs at various breeders, knowing the stud had to have excellence in genetics, a great “look” and a temperament that could match the wonderful personality of our Haley. We found it in Hawk. We drove to meet him at his guardian home and loved him, his coat, his personality and his confident, calm demeanor. And to seal the deal, his human mama said, “He never barks. I mean, he NEVER barks.”  Search was over. And on the right day, we brought Haley to meet him. And she loved him too. Immediately.  🙂 This will be our last litter of the year, and the last litter for Haley for a  long time. All of these pups are reserved unless God should bless us with an extra puppy or two in this litter (vet says the ultra sound indicates that is quite possible.)!

July 5, 2015 – All the puppies have gone home. We miss their little faces. Thank you to all the families that have trusted Valley Vineyard Labradoodles with their new family member!  Our pups are now Brody (Pooh), Roo, Winnie Bell, Olivia (Kanga), Cooper (Tigger), Cecil Brown (Christopher) and Uni (Piglet.) We won’t forget any of them!Australian Labradoodles reservations for puppies. Valley Vineyard Labradoodles.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

June 26, 2015 – Pups had their time at the vet’s office yesterday. Surgeries went fast and everyone did well! Neuters, spays, nails trimmed, vaccinations, micro-chipping, exams, all done! They came home and got busy eating and playing right away. Today, we gave them a new bed to share for their bravery at the vet. They continue to try to all fit in the bed at the same time!

June 16, 2015 – Mama Ella went home a couple of nights ago as pups are fully weaned and eating kibble four times a day now. Puppies are doing great at using their litter box in their pen. You can see how clean they’re keeping their pen (mostly).  🙂 Showed them where to go and they did it! Smarty pants. They’re still being very mellow and everyone that visits comments on how calm and laid back they are. They love being held and usually fall asleep in our arms. We love snuggly, calm puppies!

Mama Ella is starting to back off because they have teeth now and she is starting to separate herself from the puppies and not wanting to be with them as much. So we started the puppies on kibble and they’re enjoying it. And oh yeah, they are starting to use their litter box area and keeping the pen a little cleaner.   🙂

 

 

 

 

June 7, 2015 – We moved the pups from their whelping pen this morning into a larger pen in our family room to give them more space and allow them to have a separate area to relieve themselves in a potty training area. Pups don’t like to soil where they sleep so it’s a good step toward their conditioning to go in specific areas. They are still sleeping a lot but growing daily. Here are a few pictures we took this afternoon in their new pen. You can see that they’re keeping the pen fairly clean as they are learning to go where we’ve placed the potty pads.

June 4, 2015 – This is what’s happening at our home this week:   Puppies had their first full baths (they seemed to really like it!) We did their three-week wormings, and introduced them to potty pads. Some of them are starting to get their first teeth, which means that mama Ella will start to back off from nursing (ouch!) and we’ll need to start them on kibble sometime next week. The pups are developing really nicely, and they are starting to yip and wrestle. They are connecting with one another more and when we come by their pen, they now know us and come over to be picked up. This is a critical stage for holding and introducing them to as many new people and experiences as we can. So carrying them around the house and inviting friends over to snuggle with them is a priority. We scheduled their vet appointments as part of the steps in readying them for their new families. On June 25 they will get their exams, microchips and spay/neuters. They will be ready to go home to their forever homes on their 8-week birthday on July 3.

May 28, 2015 – Things are going really well. The puppies are becoming much more active and at almost 3 weeks old, we’ve pulled out our puppy sling to give them lots of extra holding time. The sling (like the ones made for infants) allows us to carry them around and to be with us while we are still getting things done. The pups love the sling and I can be carrying them while I’m vacuuming, running the blender, or working on the computer (Tigger is in my lap right now in the sling.).  It’s great. We’re at one of the critical stages of socializing and holding them and exposing them to household sounds and people. So important and we don’t want to miss any critical points of development. We want puppies that are fear-free. We want confident, social puppies with amazing temperaments. This is our goal. 🙂Puppy sling Tigger 3 weeks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

May 25, 2015 – We’ve been behind at blogging! Ella’s puppies were born on Friday, May 8 (a few days earlier than expected!) and they are now 17 days old. They’re thriving and beginning to walk around and bark a little. Their eyes opened 3 days ago and they seem to be making eye contact with us and studying our faces when we hold them. We’re working on the Bio-Sensor program with them and they are becoming more comfortable with various stimulation and laying on their backs. Ella is an excellent mama and she’s made it a very peaceful, easy job for us humans! She is ultra protective and hasn’t been too open yet to allowing strangers to hold her pups. Even with us, she keeps a close eye on us when we’re holding them. She rarely leaves their side, coming out of the puppy nursery only for a quick hello or to go to relieve herself. There’s been no fear about her crushing her pups (as our Molly tends to do) as she is so careful about where she steps or lays. Ahhhhhhh.  It’s all good. More pictures coming soon!

Here’s Ella resting on the floor next to the whelping pen tonight after nursing. And here are two of her babies sleeping tonight after filling their tummies. “Winnie” has the green tag, and the lighter pup is “Christopher.” The last picture is our puppy nursery.
