Here is the news everyone has been waiting for regarding the birth of our recent Auburn color litter of pups. Bridgette and Rhett are the proud parents of 3 beautiful puppies, 2 boys and 1 girl. ALL PUPPIES IN THIS LITTER HAVE BEEN SOLD. This small-size litter of pups from Bridgette and Rhett will allow the momma to easily manage the pups well without any stress and we are very thrilled to have such high quality Golden Retriever puppies to offer. All 3 pups are healthy, strong, and growing quickly. Momma is doing great and is doing a wonderful job of caring for her babies (she is very particular about keeping the pups on a routine of nursing and hygiene). We will be posting pictures of momma and her babies all together in the whelping box this coming weekend, October 7th or 8th. Those photos can be found under the photos menu, auburn color, then puppy photos. For those of you who've been anxiously awaiting this news on our Priority reservation list, you will be making your puppy choice starting Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, Nov 3rd, 4th and 5th. You have the option of choosing your puppy either in person here at our facility or thru video chat with us and the puppies. The price of the both male and female pups pups in this litter $2200, based on our 2023 price schedule (click here for more info on 2023 puppy pricing). Please login to your customer account to see where you are in the choosing order because you could have moved up the list (we will never move anyone down lower on the list unless you tell us that you want to postpone until the next litter).
If you are on our Priority Reservation list for this litter, please get in touch with us by phone, text, or email to confirm two very important things:
- First let us know if you want to proceed with the purchase of one of these pups from the Auburn litter, and that if you have other deposits on any other of our upcoming litters, that you want to cancel the other reservations and move those deposits to this Auburn litter puppy purchase. OR, if you currently have a reservation for this litter but cannot make a commitment to purchase a puppy at this time, let us know that something has come up and you want wait for a future litter; in that case we will roll your deposit over to the next litter (deposit refunds are not allowed if you refuse a puppy that we offer to you from this current litter).
- Next, if you are proceeding with a purchase from this Auburn litter, please schedule your time to either drive out to our facility or have a video chat with us to see the pups either Fri, Sat, or Sun, Nov 3rd, 4th, or 5th. We will only accept one family at a time to see the pups and those that contact us the earliest will have more choices for a date and time to come out or video chat with us. If we haven't heard from those of you who have a reservation by Thursday evening, October 26th, we will call you for purchase confirmation and let you know what dates and times we have remaining. When you pick your specific puppy from this litter at 5 weeks of age, you will be required to place an additional deposit so that the total amount of all your deposits is at least $1000, and this will all go toward your purchase price.
If we do not have enough puppies in this litter for you to get one and you have not rolled over your deposit from a previous litter, you can request a refund of your deposit by text, email, or phone, which will be processed within 24 hours. If you can't remember where you are on the waiting list, you can login to your customer account to check. However, if we don't hear from you, we will automatically move you up the list to a higher position for the next Auburn litter planned for April of 2024. Everyone will move up from where you were before and those of you on the 2nd Priority list can move up to 1st Priority behind those already in 1st Priority that didn't get a puppy this time. To move up to 1st Priority from 2nd Priority, you must place an additional $100 deposit so that your total deposit amount becomes $300.
Those who were on the Standby list for this creamy blonde litter will automatically be moved to Standby for the next creamy blonde litter planned for April 2024, and you also have the option of moving to a Priority spot by placing a deposit.
Many thanks to everyone on our waiting list who has been patiently waiting, and we sincerely regret not having enough puppies for everyone to be able to get one at this time. Our heart goes out to you because everyone deserves a puppy! This is something we wish we had more control over but we don't. We are hopeful and thankful for your understanding, and we hope you will stay with us for another season, but if you choose not to, we completely understand.
If we are unable to offer you a puppy from this recent litter, you have up until November 15th, 2023 to request a refund of your deposit. After that date, your deposit becomes non-refundable but can still be applied to the purchase of a puppy from a future litter.
SEPTEMBER 27TH UPDATE ON OUR AUBURN COLOR LITTER: On Monday, Sept 25th, Rhett and Bridgette became the proud parents of a beautiful litter of Auburn color puppies. Ms. Denise was right there in the delivery room whelping box and helped deliver each puppy in this litter. None were lost thanks to the hard work of Bridgette and Ms. Denise. In the past two litters, Bridgette had quite large litters (10 pups and 11 pups). This time her litter was quite small in the number of both genders. This is probably a good thing since smaller litters are easier to care for and gives momma some additional recouperation time from her previous litter. In addition, there is plenty of milk to go around so the pups will be growing fast. Both momma and her pups are doing quite well and we are very pleased with Bridgette's careful watch and care of her pups, and she is very proud. We always like to keep a close watch on momma and her pups for the first 7-10 days before we announce the final count and number in each gender. This allows us to develope the necessary confidence that all puppies in the litter are vibrant and healthy. We can say that the number of females in this litter will not be enough to cover all the reservations. On Wednesday afternoon October 4th, please return to our website for our announcement of the number of males and females in this litter. We will also provide instruction for those on this waiting list for important upcoming dates and options for those on the waiting list that we don't have enough puppies for you to get one from this recent litter.
JULY 19TH NEWS ON OUR NEXT AUBURN COLOR LITTER: Good News! Bridgette (our Auburn momma) started her heat cycle this week. Her heat cycle will last for 21 to 28 days, and the fertile mating period generally occurs 10 to 14 days into the cycle (sometime between July 26th-30th). The gestation period is 63 days which would put the birth of our next Auburn color litter sometime between September 21st and October 1st. This in turn, would make the pups ready to go home on or after Nov 24th (possibly a week later depending on the actual birth date). If everything works out with what we are currently observing and Bridgette conceives, then those who are on the waiting list for her next liter will be picking your puppy starting on Oct 27th thru the 29th, and will be taking your puppy home starting Nov 24th. This is the latest and best information we have as of this time. Thanks from Emery-n-Denise to everyone on the waiting list for your patience!
