Litter 1 - Ivylane Peach X Country Dreamboat
We couldn't believe the variety of different colored cream and apricot pups Peach had in this litter! She delivered everything from pure white chalk to deep dark apricot and everything in between! Because these pups were born on New Year's Eve in 2020, we named them after New Year's Resolutions we hoped for the world: Peach, Love, Fortitude, Wisdom, Prosperity, Joy Hope, Simplicity, Love and Resolute. I will forever remember each and every pup in this litter because their forever families have stayed so close. They have a group text and each month at least once or twice, I'll receive a flurry of pictures and comments. They share pictures and updates often and are an incredible support group for each other. There are several pups in this group that have really made a difference in their owners life - one pup went to a family with four children who recently lost their father. The mom shared with me that all four children were, understandable suffering from depression and had a difficult time getting out of bed in the morning. Once their Peach pup arrived, she went from room to room, jumping on each child's bed and licking their faces. This pup was not trained; she just seemed to know what was needed. The mother also shared that the children's counselor told her that when she asked about one positive thing that happened during the week at their sessions, each child always refereed to something that happened with the puppy. Another pup went to a family where a little human would be born in a few months. The bond this pup and this newborn child are forming is incredible to watch. And "Peace" became "Romeo" and is one of our up and coming sires. He is gorgeous!
Litter 2 - Ivylane Peach X Country Dreamboat
This was an incredibly fun litter. Born in July, we gave these pups names after summertime pleasures: Lemonade, BBQ, Beach, Sparkler, Watermelon, Strawberry Shortcake, Picnic, Snow Cone, Firefly and Thunderstorm. After seeing how gorgeous Peach's last litter with Dreamboat was, we certainly repeated the breeding, and this time, kept TWO pups for our breeding program. "Strawberry Shortcake" is now "Daisy" and "Beach" is now "Stella". Both girls should have their first litter in 2023. Pups from this litter ended up with exciting lives - one goes to work each day with her parents, and another travels all over the country with her moms in an RV. These pups have turned into gorgeous dogs!!
Litter 3 -Ivylane Peach X Barksdale's Alpha Barkley
