Callie Jo is a gorgeous medium size doodle from Annie and Shooter. She has a thick, soft wavy coat. She doesn't shed at all. She goes to work at an insurance office every day. She loves to meet people and does great in public situations. She is super mild mannered and we love her light amber eyes!

After much waiting and anticipation Callie Jo is expecting puppies! She has been bred with Winston an we are excited to see their babies! We will have red, apricot white and chocolate puppies with thick wavy coats. They will all be 30-40 pounds.
Both of these parent dogs have mellow, people loving personalities. They are great with kids and strangers alike and they are easy to train and easy to live with. We think these babies will be great!

The babies are seven weeks old today! They are all eating solid crunch food and they are growing right on schedule. They are all using the dog door 100% to go potty outside. They are doing well learning to sit to say please. They get lots of attention and love from our house full of kids and teens. It seems like summer brings all the friends and family over which we totally love and the puppy love it too.
It's the to make final preparations to bring your puppy home. If you haven't read through our preparation page here on the website you should do that right away. The most important supplies are just the basics--food, food dishes (these don't need to be fancy!), a crate and some kind of soft bedding for the crate, some chew toys and a basic flat leash and collar. You can use a small or medium size collar for now.
Now is the time to meet as a family and decide what the house rules are for the puppy. If you don't want him on the furniture then everyone should follow that rule to be consistent for the puppy. Take a minute to puppy proof your house looking at everything from a puppy's height. Move your favorite books, shoes and toys to make things easier for everyone. Remember that the number one rule for puppies is that anything that is rewarded will be repeated. Make sure to reward the behavior that you want to keep! And on the flip side--if a behavior is continuing then it is somehow being rewarded. And most importantly--remember that your puppy is a baby that ultimately wants to please you. They don't have ulterior motives and they don't do things to 'get revenge.' They just want to learn to live happily with their new families!

Callie's babies are 4 1/2 weeks old. They are just getting their little teeth and last week they all learned to climb out of the whelping box! They are now in the toddler box where they are starting to use the dog door. They are doing great with always using the paper potty tray and are just starting to take themselves outside to play and/or go potty as well.
We are spending lots of time handling and socializing these babies this week and it is never hard to find happy socializers! We have lots of little ones that love to snuggle these babies and they are all amazingly sweet and snuggly! We will continue to assist with learning to use the dog door and we will introduce new experiences every day. Later this week everyone will have their Neopar shots to help them get started on their immunity to Parvo.

Callie's babies are all doing great! We have pictures of everyone but we had some technical difficulties and some of the pictures were lost. We will take some more and add to the list but in the mean time we are enjoying watching these little ones grow! They ahve all started eating mush and drinking water. Callie is happy to have a little help with keeping these babies fed! They are all walking really well and will love over to the toddler area in the next week.
*I initially reported that Callie had 4 girls and 6 boys but I was WRONG! We have 5 girls and 5 boys. I have no excuse except that sometimes the little umbilical cords look deceivingly like little boy parts when they are tiny. We have double and triple checked and we for sure have 5 girls and 5 boys! We will get individual pictures up as they get their little eyes open!*

The babies are two weeks. old! They are up toddling around and have just opened their eyes. Some can see quite clearly and some are still in the process of fully opening. Their eyes will open this next week and they will get even more steady on their feet. Callie spends almost all of her time laying in the box with them--they nurse in shifts and pile up with each other to nap when they have little full bellies. We almost never hear a peep out of them which is a good sign that Callie doing a great job of keeping them feed, clean and warm!
We are just finishing up with our Early neurological stimulation protocols this week. As they enter the socialization period we will spend time holding each puppy individually. They are in the middle of our family room so they get lots of exposure to normal family activities and noises which is great for developing puppies!

Callie Jo has babies! We have waited for this litter for years and we are so excited to finally have these babies here! We have five girls and five boys! They look like many of them have Winston's Rufus gene genetics. (the Rufus gene causes a red dog's coat to darken over time instead of lighten). We won't be able to tell which puppies will darken for sure until they are several months old.
Callie is doing a great job with her large litter. She is calm and focused and keeps those babies warm and happy. They are all gaining weight right on schedule! Both parents weigh about 40 pounds and we expect these babies to be close to that as well.
