And Then There Were Six!

 AKC Registered Standard Poodle "Pretty Primrose" gave birth to six beautiful puppies on Holy Thursday! 

We have four boys and two girls! Puppies are now eighteen days old... their eyes have opened and they are starting to walk instead of crawl which means our lives are about to get even busier!!!! 

Rosie is a "parti" poodle. That simply means she's a white poodle with big splotches of color. Her coloring is chocolate and white....

Dad is our beloved "Jeter" (named for the Yankee captain, yes! Because Ruthy and Farmer Dave are Yankee fans!!!) But we do love all baseball so Boston fans are always welcome here! Jeter is a black Goldendoodle... his parents were both raised by us, our dogs. Mom was a chocolate brown poodle "Libby" and a gorgeous red retriever "Mick" (short for McDreamy.... sigh...)  ;)

Okay, back to the serious business of puppies!  We let the girls give them 'house' names, so you Harry Potter fans will be thrilled to hear them... 

Females: Hedwig! Hedwig is the one on the right....  "Pigwidgeon" is bigger, he's on the left. Notice the darker-toned ears? 

Hedwig is a gorgeous blonde female with tan ears... the tan ears suggest a darker overcoat to come in on these cream-toned puppies!

Winky is the biggest puppy. Also a female, she's a gorgeous sable-and-white Parti-Doodle. 

Two black-and-white Parti-Doodle boys:  Sirius and Moony!

Sirius has a full black back saddle and white legs... and a gorgeous wave already! Moony has the more traditional look of mottled black-and-white, kind of like a Holstein cow. Unlike a Holstein cow, Moony will be happy in the house! 

Then we have Dobby.... Dobby is a touch smaller and already walking.... With a litter of six, there's not usually what we'd call a "runt" but someone has to be the smallest and that's our Dobby! He was born at almost a pound, so not a runt.... he is also sable and white and is totally chill... he likes snuggling already!

And then there's Pig!!!! "Pigwidgeon" of Harry Potter fame, Pig vies with Sirius and Winky for biggest puppy status.... He's a gorgeous blonde/cream right now but with the brown ears so we're excited to see what his mature coloring will be! Pig is the larger puppy on the left.

Pups are 75% Standard Poodle and 25% Golden Retriever. This makes them an F1B doodle. That simply means we crossed a doodle (50/50) with a full Standard Poodle (100%)

Puppies were born in the house and being raised here. They will be vet-checked by Dr. Heidi Wendel of Erie Canal Veterinary Hospital in Spencerport. They will have their initial course of shots from Erie Canal Veterinary. Heidi and her staff have taken care of our pets for over seventeen years. They know us and we know and love them!

Pups are being dewormed at 2, 3 and 4 weeks.

Dad (Jeter) is eleven years old and has had no health problems.

Mom (Rosie) is seventeen months old and has a clear bill of genetic health from Embark.

Price is $1800.00

Non-refundable $200 deposits are being taken now. Pups can be visited in a few weeks time. We don't do early visits because we need Rosie to focus on love and care of her babies.  Picking order will be by order of deposits. If, however, you are the last person and you don't care for the final puppy choice, your deposit will be refunded and we will re-post that puppy. We want people to love their new family member and we know that's important to you and the puppy!!! 

Feel free to call  or text Ruthy with any questions. Phone if 585 455 1035.

Puppies will be available to go to their new homes by May 23rd, Memorial Day Weekend.
