NOV 20TH UPDATE: New whelping box photos of the puppies with their momma are up on our website. Click here to see the photos now, or keep reading to see what happens next if you are on the waiting list for a Caramel color puppy.
NOV 14TH UPDATE: Here is the news everyone has been waiting for regarding the birth of our recent Caramel color litter of pups. Scarlett and Aramis are the proud parents of 6 beautiful puppies, 4 boys and 2 girls. All 6 pups are healthy, strong, and growing quickly. Momma is doing great and is doing a wonderful job of caring for her babies. We will be posting pictures of momma and the pups all together in the whelping box by next weekend. For those of you who've been anxiously awaiting this news on our Priority reservation list, if you are in position No. 1, 2, 3, or 4 on the Caramel reservation list for a male pup, or position No. 1 or 2 on the list for a female pup, then starting Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, December 10th thru the 12th, you will be choosing your puppy either in person here at our facility or thru video chat with us and the puppies. The price of the boy pups are $2000 and the girl pups are $2200 based on our 2022 prices (click here for more info on 2022 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).
Please get in touch with us by phone, text, email or noting in your customer account to confirm that you would like to either drive out to our facility or schedule a video chat to see the pups. Those who are higher up on the waiting list (No. 1 or 2 for a male, or No. 1 for a female) should try to schedule your appointment with us on Friday (or Saturday morning at the latest). 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 you by December 5th, we will call you and let you know what dates and times we have left. When you pick your specific puppy from this litter, you will be required to place an additional deposit so that the total amount of all your deposits is at least $350, and this will all go toward your purchase price.
If you are not in the top 4 boys or top 2 girls on our 1st Priority reservation list, 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 for the next Caramel color litter planned for the Summer of 2022. Everyone will move up from where you were before and those of you on the 2nd Priority list will 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 $250 (but you must do this before December 31st of 2021, because deposit amounts will increase slightly starting January 1st, 2022).
Those who were on the Standby list for this Caramel color litter will automatically be moved to Standby for the next Caramel litter planned for the Summer of 2022, 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, you have up until December 19th, 2021 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.
NOV 7TH UPDATE: Yeaaaaa! There here! Scarlett and Aramis are the proud parents of our latest Caramel color litter born today, Sunday! Momma is doing well and the pups look good and are eating with a lot of gusto. All of the pups in this litter have already been reserved by those who have been patiently waiting on our Caramel color Priority waiting list. In another week, we will make a public announcement on our main web page as well as here on this update blog on the final number of males and females in this Caramel litter. Once we announce the total number of each gender, it will fix the price of each pup. Don't forget to come back here next Sunday the 14th of November to see if you are one of the lucky ones getting a puppy!
Mark the following dates on your calendar: Starting Friday, December the 10th thru Sunday the 12th, those on our waiting list who are high enough up on the list to get a pup will be able to pick out their puppy either in person here at our facility or thru video chat with us and the puppies using Goggle Duo. Then starting Friday, January 7th, 2022 or thereafter, you will come here to pay your final balance and bring your puppy home.
OCT 26TH UPDATE: We just wanted to give everyone on our waiting list some encouraging news. Scarlett is in the last two to three weeks of her pregnancy and appears to be carrying pups as we observe her filling out and showing signs of pregnancy. However, the last 10 days will be the most telling about a week from now as to whether or not she has conceived. But this appears to be the home stretch at this point if she is carrying pups and we are anxiously awaiting the birth of this litter sometime in the next 10 to 20 days. We will be sure to keep everyone posted as soon as we know more in another week.
SEPT 11TH UPDATE: We are excited to have observed Scarlett and Aramis, our caramel color Goldens, mating several times this past week. They will continue to mate for the next week to ten days. We will not have confirmation that Scarlett is carrying pups until late October. If her mating produced pups, the birth date of this litter will be in early to mid November 2021. Hopefully, she will have plenty of pups so that most everyone on our waiting list will get to choose a puppy a couple of weeks before Christmas, and take one home in early January.
We will announce confirmation of pregnancy with an update here in early November, and the birth of the pups as soon as that day comes. Then about 5 to 7 days after the birth, we will anounce the number of male and female pups in Scarlett and Aramis's November litter.
AUGUST 27TH UPDATE: Good News! Scarlett (our caramel color momma) started her heat cycle this week. Her heat cycle can last for 21 to 35 days, and the fertile mating period generally occurs sometime during the middle to later portion of that period (between Sept 3rd and Sept 24th). The gestation period is 63 days which would put the birth of our caramel color litter sometime between Nov 5th and Nov 26th. This in turn, would make the pups ready to go home sometime between Jan 7th and Jan 28th, 2022. All dates are estimates at this stage and we always pinpoint a firmer schedule of important dates after a litter is born. But, 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!
