Start 2016 With Puppies!

October 23, 2015

Our Copper (shared with Kevin and Tricia Dooley) has finally decided to come into season — YAY!  She will be bred to Cracker, a handsome black boy.  We expect baybeez the first week in January — if all goes according to plan.  There should be black tris, brindles and reds.  This is a stunningly healthy breeding.  Copper has the best hips we’ve ever bred.  She is tested clear of Degenerative Myelopathy, is EE (no clear red or pink), and no fluff.  Her CERF (now called CAER) is normal and her parents are tested clear for PRA.  Daddy-to-be is OFA Good, EE (no pink), PRA clear by line, DM clear.  He does carry fluff so some of the kids will carry for fluff.  Both parents have wonderful, bright temperaments.  Copper has her HT and her CD.  Cracker is a Group-winning Grand Champion.

Here is the pedigree.

It has been a year since our last litter so we are excited about these upcoming babies.  Think good thoughts for Copper and the babies.  We’ll share more information as this plan progresses.


  1. She’s a beauty, and I love his expression. Sending all good wishes for smooth sailing, good health for everyone, and lots of baybee girlies!

    How exciting! as well as trepidatious. Best wishes for a safe delivery and many fine pups.
