Fanny x Liam


Fanny x Liam pedigree

Fanny and Liam's last litter was born on 24 January 2022. This was Fanny's easiest pregnancy and whelping of all! Six incredible puppies were born within 3 hours and 45 minutes. These puppies were determined to be active, healthy, and big. An observation unique to this litter is that they loved to sleep. This actually might be why they were growing so fast ... excellent milk and lots of sleep. Even as they got older, if one was tired he/she would get back to the pen for a nap. They loved bedtime! I would get a few things out that were only for nighttime (a large stuffed caterpillar and Snuggle Puppies), everyone would get a snuggle and kiss from me, and they'd settle in while I cleaned the room. The vacuum became a sort of white noise. Another unique thing ... two purple girls in a row both named Holly and living in Arizona.

VALIANT litter

Fanny x Liam pedigree

Six amazing puppies were born on 5 September 2020. This is the first litter we've had born on two different days. AKC states that only one birthdate can be listed for the litter, so since 5 were born on the 5th that became orange girl's birthdate too. We had the opportunity to foster another Swiss Mountain Dog puppy from Blue Hill Swissys in American Fork, Utah. LuLu had been born as a singleton. We opened our puppy room to her so she could be raised with littermates and all the important and invaluable lessons that come with that.

We also experienced our first case of pneumonia which took the life of little Valiant Vera at 18 days old. She was a beautiful and gentle puppy that would have grown up looking like her mother. They say if you breed long enough you'll see everything. Well, that is something I do not want to happen ever again.

I could go on and on about puppies from this litter from succeeding in a gluten detection program, being the perfect companion for a special needs child, to exploring the Southwest, to one being poised to be a therapy dog working with Veterans, and lastly, a drivey one that loves sports (weight pull, barn hunt, bikejoring.) LuLu is racking up points towards her Championship.

5 puppies born 10 Feb 2020

A canine birth story 🐾

Stage one labor started early early Sunday morning before we had gone to bed. Stage one is marked by restlessness, digging, panting, no interest in food. We didn’t sleep much at all that night or the next one when our #doggydoula Katie came. We love her!
Pushing started at 9:15 Monday morning. Any food I had been able to get her to take has been thrown up. When pushing became more regular I gave her some oral calcium paste to increase the strength of the contractions - there that up too. Fanny’s energy was fading.
At the 2 hour mark, and I couldn’t feel a puppy in the canal, I called my local vets to say I was bringing her in.
Now it’s been 2.5 hours since she started pushing. Dr. Miller examined Fanny and felt a puppy high in the canal without its sac. It was likely dead. We decided to try a dose of oxytocin before resorting to a c-section. We were put in the cat room 😜 and set up with extra blankets and towels. (This is a wonderful fear-free, calm, and clean clinic. Dr. Miller is also a breeder of Cavs. Dr Kolste has helped us get pregnant.) 
In 10 minutes, we had puppy number one, ALIVE!! Two minutes later puppy two arrived in fine shape. The other three came in just over two hours. Birth weights 17.7 ounces - 21 ounces. Good sized puppies!
The staff and doctors were amazing with us! Relationships matter.
My Fanny had been communicating her needs to me during the whole process - I need a drink, I need a walk, I need to pee, I need help. I am so humbled she trusted me and did what I asked her. Before we left for the vet, I asked her to push very hard one more time. She pushed so hard her face scrunched up and eyes closed. 😭😭😭 I couldn’t love this girl more. Our relationship blesses me immensely.

LEGEND litter

Fanny x Liam pedigree

Fanny's first litter, nine amazing puppies, was born on 30 May 2019. Fanny is the most natural mother I've had. She has every instinct the textbooks tell us about. Pups were all a great size and started gaining right away. Liam is a son of Roma x Connor. Both of their temperaments and structure are noticeable in this second generation. Overall, I am so happy with this litter that we plan to repeat it in 2020.

Merry x Monty

MIGHTY litter

Merry x Monty pedigree

On 7 October 2018, three MIGHTY puppies were born via C-section. This was Merry's last litter and close to Monty's last. Both of these amazing, "old soul" dogs came together to form three structurally sound, perfectly temperamented puppies. It was a literal joy and blessing to love and raise them!

Roma x Connor

HOME litter

We welcomed 5 sweet and special puppies - 2 males/3 females - on 1 July 2017. That is the day I arrived home from India where I completed a Yoga Teacher Training 200 hours course. My dear daughter was Roma's devoted caregiver while I was gone. Bless Roma's heart for waiting until my arrival day! This serendipitous occasion prompts the "theme" of HOME for this litter. 

All were born healthy and strong with nice weights.
