Puppies to the vet & 4 more puppies

So, it turns out that have three children under 2 and a half, and four 4-week old puppies in the same house (while providing crazy levels of cuteness), makes it difficult to find time to blog... but we're surviving, and the puppies and kids are thriving! 

It is hard to believe that the puppies are almost 4 weeks old already! Their eyes are all open and they are getting playful. They are irresistibly cute and so much fun already! 

It used to be pretty much all quiet in the whelping box, but now we hear hilarious growls and yips when they are up playing with each other. Here's a video of them playing with Indy, then getting sad when Indy left them, before playing some more: 

Approximately 30 seconds after this video ended, they were all asleep in a pile like this...

We just got a deposit on the last puppy, so they all have homes they will be joining in a few weeks. Amazingly, they are all going to be in different states - Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Texas! We are thrilled for all of the families that these puppies are going to - they are all going to have such great lives!  We do have a waiting list if anyone is still interested, just in case a family is unable to take their puppy.

Here's all the puppies at their first vet visit: 
#1, "Colt," is going to Indianapolis
#2, "Rory," is going to live in Kentucky just a few miles from us!
#3, an unnamed Christmas morning surprise puppy for 3 little girls, is going to Texas
#4, "Abby," is going to Columbus, Ohio

Molly also had a litter of puppies! 
Indy's mamma, Molly, also had a litter of puppies just a week after Indy, so if anyone was sad to miss out on one of our puppies, we're letting people know about hers!  Molly is a first generation mini Goldendoodle (F1, 50% Retriever and 50% Poodle), and was bred with an poodle, so her puppies are called back-crosses (F1B's) since they are in theory 25% Retriever and 75% Poodle. Our Indy is an F1B as well, so you can see how cute they will be!  They are being raised in a wonderful loving home with lots and lots of socialization. Molly had a litter of 8 puppies, 4 of which are sold, so there are 4 males left - here are photos of those handsome boys!: 

If you'd like more information about any of Molly's 4 male puppies, you can contact us at and we will put you in touch with Colleen's Aunt Kathy. They are about three weeks old now and will ready to go to homes right before Christmas.
