Updates, Adoption Fee, Deposit, Questionnaire, Recommendations on Owning a Bernedoodle and Sample Contract, Waiting List

12-7-2020 - Today one dams x-ray shows 8-9 pups. I didn't x-ray the other since although she was bred at an optimum time, she didn't show weight gain (darn!). The pregnant mom would be due later this week.
Two other dams will be bred when they come into season that will be within the next 2 or 3 months. They will be bred to the sires shown on the Puppies/Parents page.
12-10-2020 - From 1 in the morning yesterday to 4:30 this afternoon, Rose Bud had her pups. There are 8 - 6 girls and 2 boys. The coloring is mainly black (like the Bernese) with brown legs/feet, cheeks. There is very, very little white except for one that stoled it from the rest. When you look down on them now, they just look like a black blob but will blossom as they age. My theme for this litter is "Chocolate" at birth they were named: Joy (Almond Joy), Reese, Twix, Hershey, Snickers, Musketeers, Mounds, and Butterfinger. For those on the list, you can start visiting once they are 3 weeks. Here is a picture but now, I'm going to bed.
12-25-2020 - Two Christmas photos...Hard to see their beautiful legs.... Their eyes are open and they are starting to get up on their legs but sleep a lot! This weekend I'll send an email about visiting next Saturday and ask you to sign-up for a time slot. Sorry for the weird orientation of the photos - Click on them for a better view. The newest photos are the middle and far right.
12-27-2020 - Lower list updated since not enough puppies were available in the December litter.
1-11-2021 - Geddy came into season today and will be bred around January 20. God willing that we get pregnant, pups would go home in late May.

December 2020 litter as they are aging:

Adoption Fee:
Tri-colored and sables are $4,300; black and white, black and brown (Bi-colored) $3,300, and for those that mainly black with a touch of white are $2,300. A $500 non-refundable deposit lines up owners to make their pick of a puppy at 6 weeks with the final payment due upon pick-up at 8 weeks. Owners can start viewing the pups at 3 weeks and weekly thereafter (on Saturdays) until they go home.
Depending on the sire, 5-8 puppies are expected in each litter. The families shown below will be choosing based on the date of their deposit. Once a deposit is placed, the owner has the option of the current litter, or to wait for a future litter. If identified, their preference of sex and coloring is shown. If there are enough puppies available and the owner does not choose a puppy from either litter, their deposit is forfeited. In the event a breeding is not successful the owner will be offered a refunded.

At the point a breeding is done, puppies would go home 4 months later. In the event litters are larger than anticipated, those lower on the list will be contacted to determine their interest. Dates of when deposits were received are shown based on when it was received or in the event of a rollover. If someone does rollover, they will be placed on the list numerically, based on the deposit date. When submitting a deposit, some families hope to receive their puppy at a certain time of the year (as noted) but that is subject to change. If anyone can think of something more fair, please advise.
