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

8-1-2021 Two litters will be born in September. A reunion of the previous litters is Sunday, August 8th.
8-10-2021 The reunion was a blast - look for a picture on the Home Page. After they were each bred I took base weights on each. At 3 weeks they likely start to go off her food which is a good indication they are pg. I will start weighing each bi-weekly at 5 weeks and update here. An x-ray will be done the last week before birth - gestation for dogs is just 9 weeks (Moms out there just went OH MY - could I have been so lucky).... My other Dam Rose Bud, should come into season in October or November.
8-18-2021 Both to be moms have been off of their food and have each had bouts of morning sickness. These are good indicators of pregnancy. More to follow once I start weighing them. :)
8-30-2021 I just weighed both females. Bear is 10 days ahead of Chewy and gained 5# (in the last week) starting the 3rd trimester. Chewy gained 1.5# although off of her food quite a bit. Looking good!
9-7-2021 In the past 8 days Bear gained another 5# and Chewy nothing although she has been off of her food. Chewy starts her 3rd trimester on Thursday.
9-13-2021 Bear and Chewy didn't gain any additional weight. Chewy remains off of her food.
9-17-21 Bear gained 2.5# since Monday. Her x-ray from earlier this morning is below. Doctor says 5 for sure - hopefully there are more....

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 along with the questionnaire below, lines up owners to make their pick of a puppy at 7 weeks with the final payment due upon pick-up at 8 weeks. Owners can start viewing the pups at 4 weeks and weekly thereafter (on Saturdays 9am-3pm) until they go home. During covid masks are required and only two from a family may come. Your shoes must come off before entering the house so slip-on's or flaps are advised.
