Penny weighs 55 pounds, Rover weighs 22 pounds. We expect these babies to be 35-45 pounds with the possibility of some getting as big as mom. Both of these doodles have curly non-shedding coats and we expect babies to be the same. Penny carries one copy of the curl gene and one of the straight gene so most puppies will be curly and some will be wavy. Colors will be cream, apricot and red with black points. We expect all puppies to have their parents sweet, easy going dispositions!
Previous litters from Penny are listed below: Penny will be bred for her third litter next week. We aren't ready to announce the stud yet but we have some really exciting possibilities coming up! We will know for sure by the end of the week. Puppies will be born around June 12 and will be ready to go home the first week of August. Penny's babies are some of our most popular and will have great personalities with beautiful thick no/low-shedding coats.
Penny--F1b English cream goldendoodle. 45 pounds
Chico--apricot American goldendoodle. 30 pounds

Family Match Day It was so nice to meet all of our puppy families today! It always makes me so happy to meet the fantastic people who are taking home a new puppy! I a so impressed with all of the families I met with today.
Five weeks old!
These puppies are five weeks old and they are growing right on schedule. They all have tiny teeth and are eating soft puppy food along with nursing a couple of times each day. They will all be eating dry hard food by next week and if the weather clears up they will start using the dog door to go potty!
Here are weights at five weeks: Kat (purple)-2.6 Ginger (turquoise)-3.0 Duchess (pink)-3.1 Nugget (black)-3.7 Sheldon (yellow) 3.8 Freckles (red)--3.8 Junior (Blue)- 3.9 Spot (stripes) -4.1 Finch (Brown)--4.3
Just a few more Christmas pictures... We did weights and dewormer and baths today. The puppies are doing great using a litter box to go potty. We usually have all our puppies using the dog door by five weeks but our temperatures are in the negatives with 18 inches of snow so we are keeping these babies inside until it warms up a bit and we are using a litter box filled with pine pellets instead of sending them out into the snow. New pictures are planned for tomorrow!
We had a lovely Christmas here at the Hatch house and we hope you are all enjoying the end of the year! These puppies have spent lots of time snuggling and meeting with our friends and family. We love to have our puppies interact (gently!) with all different ages and types of people. The more safe socialization they receive in the early weeks the easier it will be for them to adjust to their new homes and new families at eight weeks.
Hi everyone. Do you every get seriously behind? Well this week has been a doozy for me! We sent Sadie's darling babies home all day on Friday and Saturday which means my own babies were sorely neglected! All of the kids are home for Christmas break which I love so we have spent the last few days holding puppies and getting ready for Christmas! Thankfully Penny is a completely devoted mother. She keeps these babies and their bed completely clean. They all have their eyes open now and are toddling around on little wobbly legs. We just put collars on and are watching closely to make sure they tolerate the collars okay. We also have to keep little toenails trimmed so the babies don't scratch Penny when she is nursing.
These puppies are some of the more quiet babes we have had. We rarely hear a peep out of them! They sleep most of the day and they love to pile on top of each other or on the heating pad in the corner of their box.
This next week they will really learn to walk and shortly after that we will start giving them a bit of puppy formula and water. By five weeks they will be walking well enough to follow Penny outside and by six weeks they will be almost completely weaned and will be eating solid food. Puppies grow so fast! We generally try to keep pictures/videos updated every week. I have some beautiful photos on the editing page right now. For tonight I will just post some pictures I took with my phone really quickly.
Pink--small white girl Purple--large apricot girl Black--big apricot boy Green--medium apricot with white boy Blue--boy, straighter coat, apricot Brown with paws--medium apricot boy Stripes--Cream boy with tan markings--brown circle around right eye Turquoise--smaller girl, apricot with cream markings Red--smaller boy--cream with tan markings on head/face
Many of them still have speckled noses--they were all born with pink noses that are gradually turning black.
12/5/2016 Penny's babies are doing great! They spend their days snuggled up next to their mama and piled up on top of each other. They will spend the next week growing and developing and learning to move more and more each day. Eyes will open at about day ten and they will start walking shortly after that.
