(Hope you enjoy these few journal entries made during our 2009 litter)
2/27/10 -Pups have all gone home now except Henry...we're puppy-sitting for a little longer. Our JAZZmine is very thrilled about that! They are growing so fast-Henry weighed in at 21+ lbs and JAZZ at 16 lbs on Friday, the 26th.
2/20/10 - Pups are sleeping through the night now.
2/3/10 - Pups enjoyed being outside for longer than ever before...between lunch and dinner. They played and played.They get cuter everyday.
2/2/10- Pups were outside again today...thankfully the snow is mostly gone where they play, so they were happier, frolicking as usual. Ben took more pictures of them outside, so be watching for those. They played for awhile in the snow on the trailer-happy times! He passed them through the window to have their feet washed, and snuggled into their nice clean bed for a nap. That was at 3:45 and their still asleep over an hour later...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
2/1/10-We enjoyed a visit from several of our pups' new families over the past week. They are all great! And to those out of town, we certainly look forward to your visit as well. We are extremely happy that our pups will be going to such nice homes. (helps with our separation :( -starting to miss them already.) Pups got to play in the snow a little this morning after their breakfast. They got along just fine, but were happy to get back to their warm bed after about 10 minutes. :) Mom is doing a nice job of weaning them, and they seem to be adjusting nicely.
1/26/10-Chocolate male owners, you're in luck-our son got a new camera and wanted to try it out....remaining chocolate males to be selected are pictured separately and lots of shots together, so you can make preliminary picks, then verify in person.
1/25/10-Pups went outside to play for the first time today. They were very good puppies, and had fun. They were all weighed (1/24) last night -range from over 7 - 8.5 lbs at 4 wks and 3 days. Added a few random photos.
1/24/09-"Henry" has been selected after much deliberation...such good pups...makes a really tough decision! You can find his name in the portraits below.
1/22/09-Pups are growing beautifully and are very friendly, happy pups...they are eating baby dog food a couple times a day now, and mom feeds in between. All are well and wrestling, chewing on toys and drinking water from their bowl. They wag their little tails so cute when they see us. Their little "house" is working beautifully...Pups weight ranges from just under 6-7lbs now. Hope you enjoy our added photos and 4 week old "puppy portraits" below...
1/11/10-Pups will move to phase 2 home today- a fantastic indoor pen made by Art, designed to encourage potty training right from the start, and at the same time allowing mom to get to them when she needs to as we begin the weaning process soon. Works great!
1/10/10-Pups are growing so fast- mom eats and drinks constantly, but has no problem keeping up with them. Pups are all over 4 lbs, many close to 5 lbs.
1/09/10- Pups are playing and walking on all 4 feet. So cute!
1/08/10-Pups opened their eyes today @ 2 weeks-right on schedule!
Please enjoy our PHOTO GALLERY below
(And stay tuned....pictures will be changing as pups grow...)
Each Puppy's "baby book" will have a lot of these photos for you to take home
Generally, the most recent pictures are on top ; )

2/3/10-Maui says, "Should we go or shouldn't we?" Bjorn says, "Let's watch Boone and JAZZmine first to see if they make it." Everyone agreed.

We not only emphasize the importance of a pup's bloodline, but also the great value in a healthy beginning, mixed with the very important socialization for each pup. We think it's the individual attention to each and every pup that makes us stand out from many of the others!
We have now bred our beautiful dam with an excellent sire. These pups are from great bloodlines like: NFC, 2X NAFC SUPER CHIEF, GMPR Sir Hershey of Surrey, and Candlewoods Mad Mouse.
Also in their pedigree are names like .....Trumarc's and Kellogg's
We feel our pups have the same potential as their great ancestors! And even better than that, both parents have a gentle nature, and respond very well to obedience -
Chief and Charlotte's babies will want to please you, because that's how they are!!!
If you are looking for an extremely healthy, well behaved pup with prominent National Field Champions, GMPR, Master and Senior Hunters in their Pedigree, then you should be very pleased with our puppies.
